It seems that we may never get a rest from all things Clinton.
A year and half after the 2016 general election and we are still explaining what happened that allowed Hillary Clinton to lose her race.
She lost because of the Russians or was it the FBI or was it because of her message or maybe she was just an inferior candidate.
In my book she was a terrible candidate that was running against a horrible candidate and horrible won out.
And since November 2016 pundits have been explaining her loss and it is still being told to whoever will listen. Even books about her and her loss are still being published…..
New York Times reporter Amy Chozick has a new book on Hillary Clinton and the 2016 election, and one anecdote in particular from it was getting attention on Friday. It’s from election night, when Chozick writes in Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling that it finally became clear somebody had to break the news to Clinton that she was going to lose to Donald Trump. The task fell to “Robby Mook, the drained and deflated campaign manager,” per an excerpt in the Times. And when he finally did so, Clinton “didn’t seem all that surprised,” writes Chozick. Then the key Clinton quote: “‘I knew it. I knew this would happen to me,’ she said, now within a couple of inches of Mr. Mook’s ashen face. ‘They were never going to let me be president.'”
The Daily Beast has more on the book, including what would have been the “nut graf” of the Times story on a Clinton victory under the six-column headline “Madam President.” The paragraph would have begun, “No one in modern politics, male or female, has had to withstand more indignities, setbacks and cynicism.” And it would have ended: “But if she was guarded about her feelings and opinions, she believed it was in careful pursuit of a dream for generations of Americans: the election of the country’s first woman president.” The Washington Post review of the book details Chozick’s recollection of dealing with sexism from male Clinton staffers. And it has a quibble: “Unfortunately, too much of the book is devoted to Chozick’s worrying and whining—’Jesus did I whine’—about her status at the Times,” writes Carlos Lozada.
The Dems need to move past the Clinton loss and find the best candidate for 2020…..focusing on Clinton will not produce a good candidate.
Please stop all the whining and accept the loss and move on……politics has become sloppy and worthless…..time for a political revolution…..time to flush the governance toilet as it were.
