On November 9, 2016, the day after the presidential election, an op-ed celebrating Hillary Clinton’s election was supposed to run in The New York Times.
It never made it.
Who was so eager to jump on the Hillary bandwagon to make sure she kept her name in the papers?
As David Rutz of The Washington Free Beacon noticed, Warren baldly admitted her overconfident posture and the writing of the op-ed in her book, “This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class.”
On the morning after the election, I woke up early. Well, I guess I woke up—I’m not really sure I had slept much. It had been a miserable night. I blinked and rubbed my eyes as I checked my e-mail. Lots of traffic, and also a note from one of my staffers. The New York Times had called.
Over the past couple of days, I had written an op-ed for the paper, and its editors were still holding a spot for it in Thursday’s edition. Now, however, they thought the draft I had sent them yesterday might need a few revisions.
Revisions? As terrible as I felt, I laughed out loud. The draft I’d written worked off the assumption that Hillary Clinton had won. It was a summary of what I thought the election was about. …
Revisions? Yeah, this draft needed some revisions.
You bet it did.
