Bill Clinton is out stumping for Hillary by coming out in the press, asking for President Obama to make good on his promises: You can keep your doctor, you can keep your health insurance, you can go to your hospital for treatment. We know that Barack can’t do that without dismantling ObamaCare, the great holy grail of the liberal movement. By saying that, the former President is expressing a political viewpoint that his wife will be pushing as she runs for the presidency. Hillary will run on a platform of repeal and fix — you heard it here first.
But who is Hillary Clinton and why should she be president? America made a mistake by voting for a half negro man because of his bloodline. Should they make another mistake by voting based on gender alone?
Besides the Benghazi Scandal, what exactly did Hillary Clinton do while serving under Barack Obama as Secretary of State? She might tell you that she presided over the “Arab Spring” because that turned out rather badly primarily because of botched diplomacy, which she presided over. She also might NOT tell you about the Arab Spring. She was a champion of ObamaCare — but she may not want to push that laurel too hard either. She ate a lot of rich food and gained thirty or forty pounds while Secretary of State but she’ll be farmed out and leaned out by the time she runs for Leader of the Free World.
(Fox News) An NBC/Wall Street Journal survey found that Clinton’s favorability rating had slipped from 56 to 46 percent, while her unfavorable rose from 29 to 33 percent.
“And what would the argument for a Hillary presidency be? Something interesting happens when you ask Democrats why her in 2016. They say that it’s time for a woman, that she’ll raise oodles of dough, that other potentially strong candidates won’t dare take her on. The answers are about the process more than the person or any vision she has for the country. There’s no poetry in them. That’s not good.”
Hillary Clinton is the Democratic Party’s front-runner. Joe Biden is somewhere in the pack with +/- 1% total, and I think that even those dismal numbers are fudged for the sake of Biden’s libido. But…
If the Obama administration is limping out of office at relatively low popularity, that will affect the woman who was the president’s secretary of State. If ObamaCare is judged by then to have been a disaster, that will affect the woman who first pushed universal health care when her husband was president.
NY Times Observation
(NY Times) Hillary Clinton of all people knows how political fortunes turn on a dime. But she must be puzzled nonetheless, and spooked, that over a six-month period when she made no big news whatsoever, her popularity took a double-digit tumble.
These unusually big numbers suggest a climate in which someone who has been front and center in politics for nearly a quarter-century won’t make all that many hearts beat all that much faster. Voters are souring on familiar political operators, especially those in, or associated with, Washington. That’s why Clinton has fallen. She’s lumped together with President Obama, with congressional leaders, with the whole reviled lot of them.
