What was so bad about Hillary?

She never did anything illegal or wrong and always stood up for the working man, the single parent, the uninsured child...

She dedicated her life to public service and used her popularity to help those in need.

She was a victim of a foreign smear campaign that was aided by traitors and thugs, and deserves restitution and to have her good name returned to her.

“The real purpose of the depositions is harassment,” Kendall said. “It’s the creation of video footage that can be used for partisan, political attack ads. It’s social media fundraising.”

There is no evidence that Clinton will be appearing in court in September. And there is no evidence that any emails involve sex trafficking.

Hillary was grilled for 14 hours straight by a Senate Committee. She never lost her temper or her composure during the entire ordeal. She has more intelligence and endurance than 98% of the men in Washington, and that scares the shit out of them, not to mention their sense of rich, white, Republican entitlement. Therefore, Hillary is looked upon as a grave danger to the natural order of things in Washington.

Donald Trump, like the whining, petulant man-child he is, can't focus on anything for more than 5 minutes before he starts screaming and pouting.

She may have been a great president, but she ran a pathetic campaign -- wrong message, bad choice of advisers, bad VP pick, ineffective ads, weak social media presence, and on and on. It's too bad that she didn't have her husband's skills when it came to campaigning.

by Anonymousreply 3206/23/2020

The only thing negative about Hillary Clinton was her rather cold personality at times. She didn't make much effort to appear nice, both in her mannerisms and her statements, at times. She gave many people the impression she thought she was better than them, and frankly for many of her haters, she was/is.

Even today, many straight men are put off by strong willed females who won't demure to their every wish and play the part of the "little woman". They think females should be married, pregnant, looking to get pregnant, or raising a gaggle of kids, and in the kitchen cooking for their family.

I think women executives are an extremely competent and powerful force. I do t get the hate. They are extremely valuable.

by Anonymousreply 3706/23/2020

From a WaPo column yesterday... I think it explains a lot.

I’ve heard her speak and watched the Netflix documentary. She is an intelligent person with the kind of philosophy you’d prefer in public service. But she is damaged and skewed by her experience in public life and her Achilles’ heel in politics is her inability to move swiftly when she is called to explain herself or apologize. You can right or you can be strategic. It isn’t often you can be both at the same time. She struggled with that.

“And Trump supporters love to promote the idea that his following is vast and ascendant. They’d have you believe Trump ignited some kind of powerful ideological movement in the nation’s overlooked white communities.
In fact, exit polls from 2016 tell a very different story.

Nationally, a clear majority of voters four years ago soundly rejected Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda and anti-inclusive message. Only 13 percent said immigration was the most pressing issue in the country. Only 41 percent bought into his idea of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Fully 70 percent said Trump’s treatment of women bothered them “some” or “a lot.” More than 6 in 10 said Trump was unqualified to be president and lacked the right temperament. Clear majorities thought Hillary Clinton met both tests.

So what happened?

Well, here’s where it gets interesting.
Of the 47 percent of voters who said Clinton wasn’t qualified to serve, only 5 percent voted for her. That’s about what you’d expect.
Of the 61 percent of voters who said the same thing about Trump, however, 17 percent ignored their judgment and voted for him anyway.
In Florida, where Trump won by just over a single percentage point, more than half the electorate found him unqualified, and yet 16 percent of those voters cast a ballot for him. In Pennsylvania, where he won by an even slimmer margin, a stunning 21 percent of voters who said Trump didn’t have the right temperament for the job voted to send him to the White House.
In other words, on the night that marked his apex in political life, Trump’s margin of victory came from reluctant voters who almost certainly thought they were voting for the losing candidate, and who felt confident he’d make a terrible president.

There was never anything like a groundswell for Trumpism. In fact, the election had strikingly little to do with him at all. It was mostly about the intense emotions triggered by his opponent.
In the end, some critical slice of voters who thought Clinton eminently more qualified for the job couldn’t bring themselves to vote for her. And they decided their only option was to take a flyer on a guy who seemed manifestly unfit for the job — and destined to lose in any event.

There are myriad explanations for the astounding depth of this anti-Clinton sentiment; let’s not re-litigate them here. What’s clear is that a lot of white voters thought Clinton didn’t like them very much — and her describing them as “deplorables” didn’t help....

Joe Biden isn’t Hillary Clinton. He’s a more naturally gifted politician, and whatever his weaknesses, phoniness and elitism have never been among them.... If the fall campaign feels like another condescending, “us vs. them” indictment of the so-called deplorables, then the same people who felt trapped into voting for Trump in 2016 may do it again. And the result, despite all the evidence of his political anemia, could look the same.

R35... probably, in part. There is no one reason with someone who’s been around that long and whose political story is that complicated.

by Anonymousreply 4106/23/2020

R38 I kind of agree with some of what you said, but I think the whole "she doesn't apologize/explain herself" enough thing a bit untrue. Say the email thing, it took about 8 months during the campaign for her to finally say it was a mistake, and in the meantime her poll numbers had tanked, but even after she did people went on "well what about her emails!!!". It wouldn't have mattered when or how she apologized imo, and people didn't actually care about the emails, but it was just a way to frame her as dishonest, in a way I think they would do it to any female candidate, but for a male candidate it would be brushed off. Look at what Bill got away with in the oval office, or Trump, but if a woman makes one mistake they are expected to apologize and beg for forgiveness for the rest of their days. Hillary got far more crap thrown at her than Biden over past votes in the Senate.

"What’s clear is that a lot of white voters thought Clinton didn’t like them very much — and her describing them as “deplorables” didn’t help...."

To use a fondly used by them, right wing slur: What a bunch of fragile, whiny snowflakes.

"Waaah, she doesn't like us! She won't coddle our bigotry! We'll take the offensive, unqualified, wealthy white guy and then whine about "Affirmative Action" for blacks outta the other side of our mouths! Waaah!"

Fuck Them. Yeah, I said it.

There are two instances I identify where Hillary lost - When she didn't give in to her impulse to tell Trump, when he was stalking her on that debate stage, "Back off, you Creep!" Hillary herself says that in her book "What Happened", but I didn't need her to tell me that. I knew watching the debate when I was silently screaming at the TV to tell her to Back. Him. Off. He would have done so, revealing him to be the cowardly, ignorant asshole he is.

And I truly believe that would have gained her votes.

James Comey's letter. Iirc, 538 said that their research showed that during that last, after the letter, there was a slight, yet unmistakable shift away from Hillary that made a difference

Repugs are experts at exploiting ingrained American misogyny. If you want to know who Repugs recognize as tough, smart, productive, skilled Democratic women, look to who they demonize, Exhibits "A" and "B" being Clinton and Speaker Pelosi.

Hillary's campaign deserves some blame, too. Iirc, there were inside reports that Bill Clinton was warning the team at least 3 or 4 months before November that his super-human, political antennae were picking up distress signals coming from WI, Michigan and Penn and that the team needed to re-calibrate her schedule.

And all the reasons every else pointed out here, too.

I type the following, though, with self-reflection and blame, too. As Democrats, we too, rejected Hillary. We did so in 2008, for the attractive, exciting, charismatic new guy in the classroom. I disliked Cokie Roberts but she did have a point when she said that Hillary is like the earnest, smart, disciplined 7th grader running for class president who everybody knows should be elected and then along comes this new, cute, popular guy who everybody votes for instead.

So, we ourselves, as Democrats once rejected Hillary. Why then should we be surprised when voters, at large did so, too?

I know I've been contradictory here.

I do know, however, with all my heart and mind, that this country made a monumental mistake by not granting the job of POTUS to Hillary Clinton. She would have been a superb one.

For some reason she turned people off with the whole "I don't bake cookies" and the "co-presidents" thing. Then, when Bill's cheating was brought to light the hatred for her intensified. She was either wrong for staying with him or wrong for enabling him. it just got to a point where she couldn't win. Then the move to New York pissed off people. Then the primary against Obama pissed off more people.

Bottom line, Hillary is a policy person. She isn't naturally warm and fuzzy and probably hates small talk, which makes it challenging for her and tends to turn off people. I think she would have been an amazing president because I think she knows how to get shit done and work deals, but I also think that she will get in the mud if she has to. Unlike a lot of her supporters, I don't think she's squeaky clean but the conspiracy theories about her are bullshit.

The "baking cookies" bit was literally the work of Roger Stone and NYT, R58. He started telling the NYT very early on that she was a grasping woman who didn't know her place, and the NYT was happy to report on that, because the Clintons weren't of the particular kind of Democratic elite they prefer to support. Everything she did was criticized and pretty much the exact same people doing it in 1991 were still doing it in 2016.

No, r51. She's not. The way you win the Presidential Election in the US is by taking the majority of the electoral votes. She did not win because she did not play by the rules of the game.

She should have spent some time campaigning in certain states and shutting down potential scandals ASAP instead of waiting, like was said earlier.

Sure, maybe war is good for domestic GDP (good for the war economy, employment goes up, companies reap profits off of war supply & ammunition contracts, and all) - but most recent wars that the US supported proved DISASTROUS for other continents.

R83, take a cold shower & stop worshipping HRC. Forbes summary about HRC's foreign policy track-record:

[quote] Never before were the 2 leading presidential candidates so disliked. Both major parties have nominated candidates that most Americans desperately want to reject.

[quote] There are many reasons to oppose Hillary Clinton: a history of scandal, reaching back to Bill Clinton’s Arkansas governorship; greedy, grasping friendships with economic elites; and brutal partisan war against political opponents. She is smart, competent, and experienced, but so were Richard Nixon and Richard Cheney. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that she would put her virtues to good use as president. She almost certainly would lead America into more foolish WARS. About the only reason to hope for a Clinton victory is her flawed opponent, Donald Trump.

[quote] As my Cato Institute colleague Christopher Preble pointed out, “Clinton supported EVERY ONE of the last SEVEN U.S. military interventions abroad, PLUS TWO others we ended up fighting.” For instance, while First Lady she pushed for U.S. intervention in the Balkans - attacking the Bosnian Serbs and then Serbia. She was an enthusiastic war advocate, explaining: “I urged him [her husband] to bomb.” Alas, Bosnia remains badly divided while Kosovo has turned into a gangster state which, according to the New York Times, is “a font of Islamic extremism and a pipeline for jihadists.” Oops.

[quote] In fact, her PROCLIVITY for promiscuous war-making has attracted the support of leading Neo-Conservatives, including some architects of the disastrous Iraq war, which as Senator she voted to authorize. Some otherwise obscure Neo-Cons even have appeared in her campaign ads.

[quote] Sen. Hillary Clinton supported the OVERBROAD Authorization for Use of Military Force after September 11 […] She strongly backed the Iraq invasion. Only after it turned out badly and threatened to damage her political career did she acknowledge her mistake. Of course, that was too late to retrieve the thousands of American lives, hundreds of thousands of Iraqi lives, and trillions of dollars squandered.

[quote] At the same time, she said she was sorry for opposing the 2007 “surge” of troops, despite what Iraq became. Worse, a former State department aide REPORTED that Clinton later announced she would NOT feel “constrained” in the future by the failure in Iraq. She apparently sees NO NEED to learn from one’s mistakes.

[quote] Clinton supported the Obama administration’s decision to double down, twice, on its expensive yet failed nation-building mission in Afghanistan. She pushed for even HIGHER troop levels THAN did President Obama. Clinton once warned about the ill consequences of drone strikes in Pakistan, [but] became a strong supporter as secretary of state. Then she backed the administration’s drone wars in Pakistan and Yemen as well as Libya, Somalia, and Syria.

[quote] Clinton was more responsible than anyone else for America’s Libyan misadventure, another attempt at regime change on the cheap, though with a humanitarian gloss. She reportedly warned President Obama against allowing America to “be left behind” by not joining the foolish war parade in North Africa in early 2011. She responded to Moammar Qaddafy’s death with a joke, but the war left another failed state, [in the wake of the invasion becoming a] host to Islamic State killers and convulsed by civil war.

[quote] Her insistence on the ouster of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad discouraged a negotiated settlement, but the administration provided his opponents with no practical means to oust him. Clinton advocated lethal aid to rebels, who displayed a dismaying tendency to surrender and turn weapons over to radial groups, including ISIS. She later urged direct U.S. military intervention in the form of a “no-fly” zone.

[quote] Of her belligerent record Trump observed: [bold]“Sometimes it seemed like there wasn’t a country in the Middle East that Hillary Clinton didn’t want to invade, intervene in, or topple.”[/bold] Indeed, as he suggested, she is “trigger-happy and very unstable.” This is one of the most important reasons Americans face a terrorist threat. While she previously contended that “We need a real plan for confronting terrorists,” she apparently failed to recognize how bombing, invading, and occupying other nations, supporting murderous foreign rulers, intervening in other countries’ conflicts, and killing foreign peoples all create enemies around the globe, some of whom retaliate against U.S. civilians. […] Yet she believes that her mistakes entitle her to the presidency: “I’m proud to run on my record, because I think the choice before the American people in this election is clear.”

[quote] She cloaks her constant push for war with praise of “American exceptionalism” and America’s role as “the indispensable nation.” In her recent speech to the American Legion she cited Ronald Reagan’s belief in America as a “shining city on a hill,” even though he urged the U.S. to lead by example, not by becoming an International Dominatrix. In fact, Reagan was a veritable peacenik in comparison to Clinton, embracing missile defense out of his horror at the prospect of war.

[quote] As justification for her BELLIGERENCE Clinton affirmed: “America’s unique and unparalleled ability to be a force for peace and progress, a champion for freedom and opportunity.” Like intervening in Iraq and Libya, one wonders? Supporting Saudi Arabia in its brutal war in Yemen? Backing authoritarian dictatorships across Central Asia? Too bad Clinton never took seriously her admission that America’s “power comes with a responsibility to lead, humbly, thoughtfully, and with a fierce commitment to our values.”

[quote] There’s also “the experience and the temperament” of the prospective military commander-in-chief. Trump most obviously appears to flunk this test. In an address back in June Clinton attacked Trump for his “bizarre rants, personal feuds, and outright lies.” However, Clinton, while publicly less volatile, is neither more truthful nor of better character. Her willingness to go to war for less than compelling reasons is an even greater flaw. A cool head is of little value if it leads to calculated involvement in multiple needless wars. Such a person also is not qualified to be the military’s commander-in-chief. If Clinton really believes that “we should be finding ways to bring our country together around national security, our role in the world, our values,” she should repudiate her past promiscuous war-making.

[quote] In short, what makes Clinton dangerous is not the sort of incoherence reflected in Donald Trump’s foreign policy approach but a coherent yet far more dangerous advocacy of Military Dominance around the Globe. She genuinely believes that Washington should micro-manage the planet, lecturing, hectoring, subsidizing, sanctioning, bombing, invading, and occupying other nations as it sees fit. Alas, the rest of us would pay with our taxes and lives for her attempt to socially engineer the world. The two major parties have done their best to nominate the worst candidates possible. On foreign policy the Democratic Party won this dubious contest.

I think there is a way to succeed as a female leader in America, but you have to be bold and bit sexy. Nikki Haley and Sarah Palin lean into their sexiness. Palin was a trash candidate but she had higher favorables with men than Clinton. Men also like Nikki Haley. Despite this odd primary, men don’t mind soft on the eyes, Harris. Women were another issue for a candidate that kept hitting us over the head with the glass ceiling crap. Save it for election night! Imagine if Obama walked around taking about being black all the time. We know!

There is also a standard for men. Be cool, funny, or tough. This is why Gore v Bush was a close enough election to be stolen.

Hillary knew the reality of politics but though it didn’t apply to her, or she is simply unable to fake if for a year to become President.

I read from someone on Reddit about working in the Bush and Obama White House Situation Room. He would connect top level people within and out of the WH. The poster said that some young and self-absorbed Obama aids were annoying but eventually learned to do things the White House way (scheduling meetings with international allies and various processing). He also said that Secretary of State, Condi Rice, was very nice to staff and would start a phone call by introducing herself and asking the other person how they are (southern charm). Then she’d politely ask to be connected to whomever she was seeking on the call. Her staff were the same when engaging with anyone.

On the flip side, Clinton was said to be nice but cold. He didn’t have experiences getting direct calls from Clinton, but her staff were more curt. If something wasn’t right they’d use the, “Do you know who my boss is” attitude.

I think that frigid defensive stance, along with treating staff like the help, came through. She and her team are just cold. That works in Germany and the UK, but not in the US.

Even Trump’s crazy Tulsa speech had some funny riffs about the water and the ramp. We know he’s lying, and it’s beneath the Office, but he’s much more engaging than Hillary.

When you read about her crazy campaign structure were Podesta and Mook were both in charge with their own group of loyalist. Then when their authority crossed paths, Hillary refused to referee or clarify the authority. Bill was iced out of the process even though he is a good Canary in the Cole Mine with politics.

Many reasons for her loss. I want Biden to win but I feel bad for Hillary because she would have been an awesome President.

Notice that R20 calls HC 'arrogant.' This is a typical manner of slandering a woman who exhibits qualities of character that some would like to be held only by males.

When Bill and Hillary made it to the White House, Hillary already had a couple decades of progressive activism and legal experience. She was far more liberal and communitarian than her Arkansas neighbors.

HC didn't go to the White House in 1993 to sponsor state dinners and wear pretty outfits. She expected to continue doing srs macro-level social welfare projects, including healthcare reform.

She had a target on her back as soon as she arrived, really before even, as Republicans in the House and Senate made it their life's work to attack her relentlessly, which they've been doing ever since. Most of the attacks against HC have been ad hominem, the kinds of attacks people endure when they are perceived to be uppity or acting outside their role/status.

Now that the only thing that one hears from the halls of congress is the eternal histrionic SCREEEEEEEEEE of conspiracies and slander, instead of, you know, governance or policy, people actually start to believe a lot of this shit, about HC and others. Hills has been around so long that younger people don't know anything about her except what they've been told in the media, most of which is very biased and the product of our terrifically damaged media.

No it wasn’t. They have genuine affection for one another. Hillary is extremely intelligent, but she’s introverted and not warm and outgoing in the way women are expected to be in this country. Bill finds these qualities attractive. Hillary admires his charisma and his intelligence.

People hate that she stayed with him, and think that must mean they “made a deal” and don’t have a real marriage. I find that ridiculous. She stayed because she thought her marriage was worth working through it.

I like the woman. I relate to her an awful lot. She tried very hard to attempt to be “likeable” enough to run a successful Presidential campaign, even though it went against every instinct in her body. I have to remember every day to smile and be friendly enough to people that they don’t think I’m a serial killer. It doesn’t come naturally to me at all. So I feel like I get her.

I’m sure it’s a relief to her that she doesn’t have to worry about any of it anymore. If she was reading this, she’d be flipping you assholes the bird with one hand and sipping her Chardonnay with the other.

I could add more reasons, but, really, she just refused to adapt to expectations.

Hillary was too burned by 20+ years of being attacked by the right wing (and super-leftists), to be her authentic self. I'm a fan of hers but I'm only that way because I've done plenty of reading about her, which the vast majority of people won't do. She comes off stiff and practiced because she is, she's very guarded when campaigning and so when you put her up against people like Bernie and Trump who are very off the cuff and unguarded in how they speak/act, she doesn't come off well even if she is better qualified.

A big part of why her favorability increases so much when she's not running for office, as when she was Secretary of State, is that she lets her guard down just a little bit more and allows the human side of herself to come out. I do think she is actually a great and very caring person (You can see it in some of the e-mails where she gets her staff to help random people), but it's hard to see when she's in campaign mode, and Hillary herself has admitted this. She did a Humans of New York piece about taking the LSAT and being attacked by the men there that I think is very revealing.

There also is the obvious sexism angle, both from men and women. I know multiple women who were not excited about the idea of Hillary being President because she "didn't do it on her own" and stuck with Bill after all his affairs.

Hillary was also a first wave feminist before she was first lady, and as such has had to take the fire and hostility that comes with that (as so many women of that generation can attest to). I watched the documentary series about her and in my opinion the real insight into who she is comes from her close friends from Wellesley. They all seemed to be interesting, cool, earthy people who radiated empathy and intelligence. And two of them are super-dykes. Nothing says more about a person's character than the company they keep and this group was a class act.

It quoted a close friend of theirs from Arkansas, who said something along the lines that people read all kinds of things into why she hasn't left him, but, this friend was quoted as saying "It's simple. She's crazy about him."

This source said that she knows how astounds some people because of what he's put her through, but it's true and that the pattern is he'll screw-up and screw around, and she'll be deeply hurt but eventually he'll charm her and she gets over it.

And she’s supposed to be some criminal mastermind.

Give me a break. She would have been an excellent president and I hope she gets some sort of Justice one day for the way they brainwashed a vulnerable sector of the public with the help of Facebook and turned her into some sort of cartoon villain.

Right, the basic criticisms is "she has an ego". And here I was thinking that MOST politicians have one of those...

by Anonymousreply 17206/23/2020

Maybe she should get a seat on the highest court. She has earned it.

In retrospect it was really odd how nobody (except Bernie and that other guy) ran against her in the primaries. It was like her winning was pre-ordained.

by Anonymousreply 17406/23/2020

R174 She had such an advantage in fundraising, name recognition, qualifications, and support from Black Democrats plus the backing of pretty much every prominent Democrat, so most politicians viewed running against her as career suicide. Biden was pretty much told to stay out of it when he was considering running in 2016, and if the sitting VP is getting pushed out what chance did any other establishment Dem have? Plus why run the risk of pissing off the likely next President when you can stay out of it and get rewarded with a Cabinet spot or better funding/endorsements a few years down the road?

I stopped believing the lesbian rumours the second I heard Hillary say on Howard Stern that she had never even been tempted in a smug, self-congratulatory way. She is definitely 100% straight, and a bit homophobic I think.

I see nothing to disagree with in R89's greyed-out post.

Hilary was not perfect but would I think have made a good President. Certainly the pandemic for one thing would have been much better managed.

R99 she voted FOR the patriot act. The wrongest thing she has ever done.

Stay out of grown folk's business, the Clinton's marriage is of no concern to anyone else.

It really is like a knife in my heart every day that she isn't President.

Biden will be fine, but she would have been one of the greats.

The trolling on this thread is truly insane. Who’s the numb nuts who keeps bringing up AOC and Pelosi? I had to block him...divide and conquer trolling tactics straight from the GOP. It’s all over this thread. Don’t fall for it, people.

I don't understand why you don't understand how Trump's installation in the white house is a problem.

R177, you're equating wrong with criminal. Of course she hasn't done anything criminal. I'm mystified as to why you can't acknowledge she's made some major mistakes in judgment and strategy and, guess what, she's a politician... so it kinda counts. Anyway, I'd love to sell whatever your bubble is made from because it cannot be breached.

Sorry that ^ was for R171. I dwell enough in reality to accept I am a lousy typist.

[quote]The Huma/Hillary bond is a strange one. Almost makes you believe the lesbian rumors.

It was strange and I agree, she was not helpful and neither was Robbie Mook.

What's weirdest to me is how Huma, who is like a daughter, slots in alongside Chelsea, who actually is the daughter. It just seems weird to me she'd adopt thirty years after having a daughter of her own...

by Anonymousreply 19206/24/2020

I'm guessing Huma and Clinton became closer after Anthony Weiner exposed his weiner a few too many times.

by Anonymousreply 19306/24/2020

r176, she's not just "a bit" homophobic. She was very honest with her views that should not have the same rights. Don't ever forget she changed her tune only when she wanted our votes.

Bernie did the exact same thing. He was NOT for gay marriage as his fans like to spin it. He was for civil unions as well. He even was hesitant to answer questions about gay marriage. He felt that it should be left "up to the states". So neither were all that bold when it came to that issue.

by Anonymousreply 19506/24/2020

I wonder how many straight people sincerely care or are just mouthing the right word.

by Anonymousreply 19606/24/2020

I find Huma fascinating. She barely says 5 words in “Weiner” but every second she is on screen is worth a thousand words.

I actually really do just believe that she is a genius.

The women that hate her hate her because she is capable, she stayed with her shit of a husband (for power) and her EMAILS!!!

I love Hillary! That woman has balls of steel. Putin and Xi were afraid of the woman. We need more women like her.

Let’s be honest. Bill and Hillary stay together because of Marital Privilege.

by Anonymousreply 20006/24/2020

Bill cheated on Hillary, but I always thought that it was something she was OK with as long as it was kept discrete. She's smart, has a dry sense of humor, loves the arts, but I never saw her as sexual. Bill, otoh, was very sexual. However, one thing Bill never did was cheat on Hillary with a porn whore and a Playboy whore who lived in a bungalow at Mar A Lago while his wife just gave birth and was breast feeding their baby.

R201 Hillary, bless her, does not love the arts. She is a lawyer and a total philistine with no taste, but she would have been a great president.

Hillary (and Bill) were frequently seen at theater. A friend saw them at Hamilton at the Public and watched them throughout the extremely relevant second act.

by Anonymousreply 20606/27/2020

I'm thinking Hillary has done a great job with her public service. But if Biden wins she should be Defense Secretary. she wouldn't put up with Putin and Xi's bullshit.

R207, I would pay millions--millions that I don't have--to see the look on Putin's face if Hillary was Defense Secretary.

Hillary is one of the most fascinating political figures of the past century and she elicits the most visceral reactions in people. Hopefully, she will be judged more fairly by history than she has been in her life. It's also interesting how Bill Clinton went from being one of the most popular presidents of the 20th century, leaving office with the highest approval rating (even higher than Obama's) and would have handily won a third term if possible, to now where he's sort of a political afterthought or worse, a cancelled pariah.

Good point re: Bill R210

At the same time, Bush The Younger is enjoying a revival of sorts, mostly because compared to Trump, anyone can seem like a respected statesman.

NO. No she wasn't, OP.

by Anonymousreply 21206/29/2020

When Obama was elected it was understood President Clinton's legacy would be overshadowed by President Obama's historic election. It was in the details and nuances of Time and Newsweek magazine. Biden will be pretty much the Clintons 3rd term.
