The window for 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to enter the 2020 election is closing fast. But as of now she's not on the ballot. (Associated Press)

My last column ever — ever! — on Hillary Clinton. Promise.

Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump in humiliating fashion on Nov. 8, 2016. That's 1,183 days ago. And yet, nearly every day since Election Day, Mrs. Clinton is in the news: Appearing on "The View," hanging out with Jimmy Fallon, hawking a book with her daughter. Published February 4, 2020

Pathological liar Elizabeth Warren thinks presidential candidates should tell truth

The Massachusetts Democrat lied about being an American Indian, lied when she promised to serve her full Senate term if reelected in 2018, lied when she said her children attended public schools, lied when she said her father worked as a janitor, lied when she said she was fired for being "visibly pregnant."

Howard Stern ‘goes there’ with Hillary Clinton, makes her look surprisingly lifelike

Humanizing Hillary Clinton is no easy task. She has no discernible sense of humor (her smile is often fake, her laugh contrived). She's a policy wonk in all the worst ways, deeply submerged in the boring machinations of government. And in one big measure voters sometimes use to pick their candidates -- "Who would you most like to have a beer with?" -- Mrs. Clinton would fall last on nearly every list.
