Hillary, why don't you think about moving the Clinton Foundation offices out of Harlem, and not to Manhattan where Bill originally wanted them, but to St. Louis, the heartland, perhaps to the Pruitt-Igoe area to show, like Jimmy Carter and his wife flying into Three-Mile Island in the middle of a potential nuclear melt-down, that there is nothing to fear, but fear itself. You could move into the new One World Trade Center tower that replaced the "Twin Towers", but that might be awkward.
You are going to need a response to the fact that you say that you confronted Wall Street in 2007 before the 2008 bailout which was as big a clustered copulation as a Saturday night in the 80's at Club 54. Then, there is Bill’s 1999 failure to stop the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, the historic 1933 firewall that the nation’s leaders built to prevent another Great Depression and without which we witnessed, with the promised windfall of deregulation, the smut of Enron, WorldCom and Robert Merton's and Wall Street's Black-Scholes credit default swaps, the short-selling tyranny of numb nuts betting against America and for which no one was hung. Bill essentially opened the door to the 2000 Bush bamboozle that led to the Neo-Con’s war mongering....and as for the windfall of deregulation....it turn out that Greenspan's “put” that was really one big poot in the face of the average American that was followed by Hank Paulson’s financial rape of the whole nation. Trump will use his four bankruptcies to claim that that's what Hank Paulson and GWB should have done in 2008, which is quite true, but not if it left unchecked the break-up of the big banks who lathered us up to the hilt while our military-industrialist-complex was bombing the holy hell out of people sitting on Middle Eastern oil, which by the way, makes the politicization of Global Warming by Al Gore who sold his T.V. business for oil money, look quite suspicious when it is not the bimbo politicians who should so argue, but the nations' best scientists. They all know the truth. Especially the best solar and wind energy scientists or the gas phase catalysis scientists who die mysteriously when they are working on fuel cell technology. They know that they are like Copernicus and Galileo held captive and under house arrest or worse, not by the Pope, but by the new Pope and his college of Cardinals whose Vatican is sinking into a sink hole.....the fossil fuel fuckers.....the world's oil cartel.
You and Bill may not be able to say "we will always have Paris," but you will always have Chelsea between you like "the sun through yellow curtains and a rainbow on the wall," and that, my dear friend, is enough to have made it all worthwhile.
P.S. If you should find yourself running short of material to use against Trump you will want to consult John Oliver. How I wish he was one of the sisters, but he does seem to share Elizabeth's irreverence and sense of mission that informed our march toward democracy and the original Boston Tea Party!
