I do not know about a great implosion but I do know humans. In middle aged folks of all genders and races there is this thing called "clay feet". It just smacks us in the face and can become nearly debilitating if not overcome. It is a reluctancy to move or take on difficult new tasks. My opinion is that it is tied to not being able to do certain things as well as when we were younger. This just smacks us in the face and creates a disorder of lack of confidence. Kind of akin to depression.
If not overcome, these guys in board rooms and executive positions really screw up the works. Internal debating and study and research is a safe place for them. Carrying the task out or thinking and reacting spontaneously is to be avoided at high cost.
Hillary is exhibiting a serious clay feet problem. Trump is showing us that he has overcome the issue.
Perhaps Hillary is comfortable with her past. Trump seems to be comfortable with the future.
(I had several dogs. One was oldest and the clear Alpha. A bad leg set him back for awhile. He never regained the Alpha role. Of course in the wild the bad leg would get you eaten and replaced. Alpha Hillary seems to have a bad leg)
