** While not intended to be this way, Ben's speech to Selina in season six [[spoiler: laying out all the reasons she will ''never'' be considered a candidate for President again]] sure comes off like this.

* VindicatedByHistory: As it turns out, Selina herself. In the sixth season finale [[spoiler: her diary is made public, revealing that Selina was the one behind the Tibet freedom deal that Montez took credit for. As the public turns on Montez massively, they also now see Selina in a new light by making this deal and having it stolen from her and her Presidency is no longer regarded as a massive failure. Selina is able to use this new popularity to boost her run for the office again.]]

** When it comes out that [[spoiler: Selina was the one who really created the Tibet freedom deal, the public and press turn on Montez massively for taking credit for it. The Nobel committee moves to take back her Peace Prize and the public now sees Selina in a far more sympathetic light and more popular than ever before for having her greatest achievement robbed from her.]]

[[spoiler:When Jonah's uncle forces him off the ballot in favor of his more electable cousin, she dumps Jonah to his complete astonishment.]]



* RealityEnsues: In the sixth season premiere, Selina is seriously considering making another run for President. Ben has to sit her down and point blank lay it out for her: As far as the public is concerned, [[spoiler: Selina is the second least effective President in history (only ahead of William Henry Harrison because he died after one month in office) and her run was so bad that people honestly believe her successor, Laura Montez, should be considered the first female President. Ben bluntly tells Selina there is no chance in hell the party will possibly support her in a Presidential bid and ''no'' donor is crazy enough to back her as an independent. It takes his blunt talk for Selina to finally realize her dreams of returning to the White House are just that.]]
