Frank Bruni, "From ‘Hamlet’ to Hillary": Helping Narcissists Become President

"God has given you one face and you make yourselves another."

- Hamlet, Act 3, Scene 1

The true face of Hillary Clinton? Has anyone ever seen it?

In his latest New York Times op-ed entitled "From ‘Hamlet’ to Hillary," Frank Bruni tells us of the life and career of Joel Benenson. Bruni writes:

"Benenson, 62, majored in theater at Queens College, part of the City University of New York. He thought he’d be an actor, but for most of his 20s co-owned a beer distributorship in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn.

And now? He’s one of the country’s leading pollsters and political strategists. He played a key role in Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 presidential races and is doing likewise in Clinton’s 2016 one."

Wow! Can you imagine? Helping Obama, a narcissist with no executive experience, win two terms as president of the United States! "Change"? No, it didn't happen, although Obama is still attempting to assist Khamenei in obtaining an arsenal of atomic weapons to be used against Israel within the next decade.

Hillary? Also a narcissist who stands for . . . herself. Personally, I would prefer beer over Hillary, although I would probably end up drinking away the profits.

Bruni tells us of the advice that Benenson has for young people:

"'Don’t think about what you want to do for the rest of your life,' he said. 'Think about what you want to do next.' Maybe, he said, you 'have a big goal out there and pursue it, but along the way, that line from A to B is not a continuum. The key will be identifying what you are passionate about in each of those steps along the way.'"

Fascinating. I am going to take the next plane to Baltimore–Washington International Airport and let the youth of Baltimore know of Benenson's wisdom . . . not. Regrettably, not everyone has the possibility to pursue his or her passions.

  1. Who will explain why so many Dems are now mostly linked to Brooklyn?

    Has the Working Families Party taken over the Democratic Party?

    Is there another backstory to explain why Hillary2016 chose Brooklyn for her HQ?

    yeah, work hard, play by the rules, get a college degree, go back for more 're-training', and, now, follow your passions. buzz-word ghosts.
