First Mitt Romney loses a presidential election that he was predicted to win in a walk. Then he appears some 15 months later on Sunday's "Meet the Press" to lecture the nation on how Republicans might lose the presidential election once again.

It is happening again. The media tell us there is a huge groundswell of support for Hillary Clinton to run for the presidency in 2016. Already an enormous political action committee has been formed. She is again -- as she was in 2008 -- the inevitable candidate and, by the way, the inevitable...
