Camille Paglia Says Hillary Can't Win

The host of a dinner party once seated Camille Paglia and Rush Limbaugh next to each other, expecting tons of fireworks. The host was disappointed, as the two got along famously.

Firebrand writer Camille Paglia says Hillary Clinton “has no vision” and can’t win the general election against any of the leading Republican presidential candidates.

In an interview with Canada’s Globe and Mail, Paglia – who came into the public eye in the early 1990s with her denunciation of “political correctness” – declared:

“I don't know where people are getting the idea that the Democrats are a shoo-in. I don't see them gaining the White House unless there's a third-party spin-off, like Ross Perot.
