Hillary Clinton’s flagging campaign showed further signs of desperation over the weekend when she required attendees at a Cleveland rally to sign commitment pledges.


The event in Cleveland was designed to attract millennial voters, but, as reporter Salena Zito of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review noted, it looks as if it may have been an epic fail.

While there were many students lined up to attend, some students told Zito that they were leaning more towards Bernie Sanders. One student said he had ‘nothing else to do at 10 in the morning.’ And during the speech, as Zito put it, “no one picked up what she put down.”

It’s not just millennials who are engaged by Sanders and cool to Hillary. New polling shows Sanders ahead of Clinton in New Hampshire by 9 points, as well as gaining in Iowa.

This, despite the fact that at a Saturday campaign event in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Clinton invited the “alternative” women’s chorus Voices From the Heart to sing a bastardized version of an African-American spiritual, “Woke Up this Morning (With My Mind on Jesus),” which replaces the name of Jesus with “Hillary.”

Apparently no one in New Hampshire was picking up what they were putting down either. Perhaps it’s the rather blasphemous nature of the name replacement. Or perhaps the distorted song fails to inspire when it’s sung by a gaggle of white women.

Then today, at a Labor Day parade in Pittsburgh, AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka — who has not endorsed Hillary or any other candidate at this point — showed up with Joe Biden. Biden, who has not declared that he will run for president, was met with cheers of “Run, Joe, Run!”

Hillary Clinton’s sputtering campaign reminds me of the famous last verse from T.S. Eliot’s poem, “The Hollow Men:”

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

Hillary’s campaign is just that: hollow, desperate, and whimpering.
