At Least One Dentist Thinks Hillary Should Run in 2012


Remember the PUMAs, those die-hard Hillary Clinton fanatics who refused to accept that she had lost to Barack Obama? Some of them are apparently still bitter, and grasping onto the infinitesimally minute possibility that Hillary will mount a primary challenge to President Obama for the 2012 Democratic nomination. William DeJean, of Chicago, for example. He spent $5,000 to create this ad touting Hillary’s future fantasy run. “Let’s make sure the president we should have elected in 2008 is on the ballot in 2012,” onscreen text reads before a portrait of Hillary appears, floating through space inside some kind of futuristic picture frame. Why is DeJean wasting his money on this? Because even more than mothers who are also grizzly bears, it’s well known that dentists are particularly attuned to threatening changes in the direction of the country.

When asked why he put the ad up, DeJean told CNN Thursday that “I’m a dentist and I don’t think this country is headed in the right direction.”
