Janet Reno, the nation's 78th Attorney General under Bill Clinton, and first woman to hold that office, died this morning at age 78 at her home in Miami. A long time friend of Hillary's Reno died just 24 hours before she'd know the political fate of her friend: whether she'd be elected the first female US President as she was the first female AG? Or be defeated by macho, so-called misogynist billionaire Donald Trump?
The question is this: is Reno's sudden death by Parkinsons (a disease some suspect is afflicting Hillary) an auspicious sign for the Democratic nominee? Does Reno breaking the glass ceiling at the Justice Department herald Hillary doing the same for the Presidency? And that her death prophetically signals Trump going down in defeat? Or is Reno's death ominous of failure and political death for Hillary? Ominous like several other deaths suggest? Deaths like FDR and George McGovern? For Hillary launched her presidential campaign on the 70th anniversary of FDR's death*(she wants to be the female FDR see). And when her friend George McGovern died in October 2012 (shortly after the Benghazi raid) he was laid to rest on her 65th birthday (see).
*April 12, 2015. FDR died April 12, 1945.
My guess is that Janet Reno's sudden death today falling just short of tomorrow's election is a sign of failure and defeat for Hillary; that she will just fall short of winning the 45th presidency in what perhaps will be a very close race. Why do I say this? Because Reno was a native of Florida; and today November 7th is ominously for Hillary the 16th anniversary of the 2000 presidential race*where Republican George Bush beat Clinton backed Democrat Al Gore (the 45th VP) in a contest that went all the way to the Supreme Court and was decided in RENO'S HOME STATE. In other words, does the defeat of the 45th VP prophetically anticipate Hillary losing the case for the 45th presidency?
*Today November 7th is also the 44th anniversary of the 1972 presidential race when Nixon decimated George McGovern. And the 140th anniversary of Republican Rutherford Hayes defeating New York Governor Sam Tilden by one electoral vote while losing the popular vote (see).
Now with Hillary and Trump running neck and neck in Florida (a key battle ground state) it could very well be that Reno's death this morning in Florida on the anniversary of the 2000 race prophetically anticipates the outcome of tomorrow's election. That the election of 16 years ago today (an auspicious political number for Trump, see) is a model for the 2016 race. Could it be that Florida once again in a nail bitter will decide tomorrow's winner and loser?

After years of estrangement Hillary campaigning with Al Gore in Miami. Gore warned the crowd against the upcoming election turning out like 2000 (see).
In other words, Hillary like Gore could win the popular vote and Trump like Bush the electoral vote because of Florida again (Trump's second home). Or will some other one state decide the outcome, like Ohio did in 2004? Tomorrow we shall see if Reno's death in some sense has any relevance as a providential sign anticipating a Trump victory.
THE FDR-NEW YORK FACTOR
Now if Donald Trump wins election in a close race, as I believe he will, he'll be the 7th New Yorker to be President after FDR-whose 84th anniversary of his victory over Hoover is tomorrow November 8th. And here too Janet Reno seems relevant. For she was born on July 21, 1938 during the Roosevelt era (see). And amazingly she celebrated her 78th birthday on the very day Donald Trump gave his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention (see). It would seem this is a sign that native New Yorker Donald Trump, not Chicago born Hillary, will be the 7th New Yorker after FDR to be President.
RENO IS NARROWLY DEFEATED IN GOVERNOR'S PRIMARY RACE
Speaking of razor close elections it is fascinating to note that in 2002 Reno ran in the Democratic primary for governor of Florida ultimately hoping to unseat Jeb Bush. But she lost in a squeaker to her rival Bill McBride 44% to 44.4%. There were voting problems in the election, and Reno didn't concede defeat until a week later.
Is this what lies in store for us tomorrow and in the days and weeks ahead? Post-election uncertainty and chaos like we had in 2000? With Trump or Clinton finding fault with the results and taking aggressive legal action to remedy it (Reno was a lawyer)? With the nation once again in political turmoil? Or if Hillary should win, which I strongly doubt, is Reno dying today a sign of legal and criminal problems plaguing a Hillary presidency? Problems stemming from her emails or corruption at her foundation or God knows what (see)? My gut tells me that regardless of tomorrow's outcome there will be much discontent and unrest on both sides. If that should happen hopefully things won't get too out of hand.
Similar to 2000 Trump took Florida in a squeaker; and like Bush lost the popular vote but won the electoral college.
