Hillary Clinton’s Planted “Hecklers” are Not Very Subtle

At least Obama’s planted hecklers are subtle, demanding that he support policies that he already supports thereby creating the image of a more militant push forward.

Hillary’s planted hecklers just say exactly what you expect them to say.

Hillary Clinton on Thursday argued that women can play a critical role in promoting sustainability while speaking at a Philadelphia event, where she also dealt lightheartedly with what appeared to be a friendly heckler.

“[In] developed countries, we still have to keep knocking barriers down to women’s full participation on boards of companies that make decisions about sustainability, in corporate suites where people make decisions about sustainability,” she said to cheers, speaking at a conference held by the U.S. Green Building Council.

This is clearly the most important issue in a country with massive unemployment and towering debt. This is what happens when the left isn’t just playing its stupid games on an academic committee or a radical basement operation, but takes over an entire country.

During the interview portion of the evening, Clinton touched on a variety of subjects, from blasting the media for giving oxygen to climate change “deniers” to moving beyond Washington gridlock. Clinton, asked about how the government can return to an era of compromise, was poised to answer when an audience member interrupted and, according to someone in attendance, appeared to shout “Hillary ‘16!”

“That’s funny,” Clinton responded, amid laughs and applause. “Well there are some hecklers that I would never say anything bad about.”

Especially when you plant them to shout that you should run for president at exactly the right moment. Era of compromise? Sure. Just vote for Hillary.

Striking a more serious note, she said that ultimately America is headed for a “course correction” away from gridlock.

“I’m confident that we’re going to see a course correction here because I know the kind of competition we’re in globally,” the former secretary of state said. She added, “We have to remember our influence and our leadership starts right here at home. We have to demonstrate our system works, that we get along with each other, that we can make hard decisions together. Because people around the world watch us so closely, closely than a lot of our own citizens watch our decision-making.”

Sure. If there’s anything that Hillary Clinton stands for it’s non-partisan compromise. A Republican congress and Hillary will get along swell.
