Hillary Clinton is the Scott Walker of national politics: Identifying special interests with big money and pitching ‘give me money, I’ll do whatever you want.’
But the desperation of thecoronate-Hillary Clinton-now project is now apparent.
Hillary Clinton has unfavorable v. favorable ratings of minus-14 points, (Huffington Post).
The American people have lingering trust issues with Hillary Clinton.
The critical 18-29 demographic think Clinton is corrupt and dishonest.
So, naturally the DNC and surrogates today are blaring March 15 is the day we get-behind-Hillary Clinton, no matter that most of United States would not have voted including New York, most of the north and the west coast, (Democratic Strategist).
Why the rush? Why call for excluding most Democratic-voting citizens in their right to choose their president.
The previous Quinnipiac poll, from 12/16 – 12/20, had Clinton up by 31.Trump is now up by 20. The previous Quinnipiac poll, from 12/16 – 12/20, had Trump up by 9.
“They’re worried about what the popular response to Sanders shows them about Clinton’s vulnerabilities in November,” Edward-Isaac Dovere and Gabriel Debenedetti write in Politico.
Gail Sheehy on Clinton:
“Among those unlikables consistently repeated to me by women who are conflicted about her: not authentic; can’t trust her; she lies; she’s establishment; she’s a hawk.”
I see she’s adopted the rebranding “gun safety.” “Gun safety” has traditionally meant handling your guns safely, but now it’s supposed to mean what has more commonly been called “gun control.”
“Safety” sounds nicer than “control.” “Control” is what a repressive state does to a cowed citizenry and what sexist men want to do to women. It’s what puts the freak in control freaks. But “safety” feels like a caring mother, a loving partner, a beneficent government.
Clinton has been immersed in politics for decades, and yet the panel managed to make the contrast between her manner and the ways of Washington look stark. She appeared to be a sensible outsider. At 7:15 P.M., nine hours after the hearings began, Martha Roby, of Alabama, asked Clinton about her movements when she went home on the night of the attack. “Were you alone?” she asked. Yes, Clinton said. “The whole night?” Clinton started to laugh once more. “I don’t see why that’s funny,” Roby said. Not funny, perhaps, but, like the Benghazi committee itself, absurd.
