If Hillarious Clinton is to win the White House, she would be wise to follow the lead of "Seinfeld" George Costanza and do "The Opposite."
Clinton has made her foreign policy experience a centerpiece of her campaign. Under scrutiny, however, Clinton’s acumen has been consistently called into question — from her vote, as a U.S. senator, for the Iraq War (which led to the collapse of that country into near failed-state status) to her relentless push to intervene in Libya (which led to the collapse of that country into near failed-state status); not to mention her handling of the Russian “reset,” the so-called pivot to Asia, and the Arab Spring, among other issues.
With this record, what's the risk, Hillarious?
Costanza came up with his "opposite" strategy as every decision he's ever made has been wrong, he tried to do the opposite. As Jerry Seinfeld sums it up, "If every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right."
The brilliance of this is that despite the absurdity of the premise, it makes perfect sense. Doing the opposite, in George's case, meant being honest, treating people like people, speaking openly, confronting social situations directly, and having patience with others. George's life improved—the opposite of George is a good person.
Try it, Hillarious. What have you got to lose?
