On this, the day after the ground-breaking “Commander in Chief” forum on NBC/MSNBC, one of the more oft-heard criticisms of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s performance is that “she did not smile enough.”

Some folks think that’s a sexist criticism. Others say its misogynistic. We disagree with both. True, many of our readers probably are not oid enough to remember 1974 when Howard K. Smith and David Brinkley both suggested that President Nixon could have avoided having to resign as a result of the Watergate scandal if he had only dressed up a bit prettier and smiled more.

In 1920, Warren Harding (left) knew how to 'wow' the press with a flash and a smile. His opponent, James Cox, could not match Harding in sheer zest appeal.

That criticism goes all the way back to the 1920 presidential election when Warren Harding beat Democratic candidate James Cox by showing up at public events wearing long, flowing gowns while Cox wore traditional business suits. The flamboyance of the Republican easily overwhelmed the staid Democrat whose campaign slogan of, “I Like Cox” failed to catch on with the voters.

It is with these criticisms in mind that we turned to our old friend, Stogie Carbuncle, and asked him to come up with a song to inspire the former Secretary of State to add a bit of girlish charm to her campaign.

We hope this helps.

Retired from his position as a writer/editor at the National Institutes of Health, Bill Schmalfeldt saw the willingness of a cadre of right wing idiots to destroy the life of an ex-con who had re-entered public life having served his time. He spoke out against this pack of hyenas and paid for it with false attacks on his own reputation and filthy, foul and profane mockery surrounding the death of his wife in 2015. Unbroken, Bill continues to write for Breitbart Unmasked and his private blog, http://theclintoniconoclast.com.
