look up any word, like plopping:
 
1.
n. a grasp that comes up empty, v. to reach out and attempt to grasp something that is totally unattainable (so-named for Hillary Clinton's annoying pursuit of the Democratic primary long after Barack Obama had realistically sealed the deal).
noun: Stop extending your hillareach. I'll get it for you.

verb: I'm still hoping I can get that promotion, but most of me thinks I'm hillareaching.
