"Do not let them think, 'Aha! Just what we wanted!', or say, 'We have swallowed him up". Psalm 35. Hillary is the Haman of our day (Esther), full of overweening arrogance and ambition. She despises all that is righteous and would destroy all God's people in the land. God sees that her day is coming.
