Democrats are finally getting to the same place Republicans have been for years. One well known Hillary surrogate and fundraiser summed it up like this: “I wish she’d just shut the f— up and go away.” In her excuses book, “What happened,” Hillary Clinton, the most evil person ever nominated to the White House by a major party, blames everybody and everything except her own pathetic performance for her loss last November. Her book excerpts coming out now is placing a lot of blame on her party and they just won’t stand for that.
She did not win a single debate. She called voters “deplorable” even as she tried to get their vote. She made very few personal appearances and when she did, she drew crowds smaller than your average PTA meeting.
She never made any trips to Wisconsin and none to Michigan and Pennsylvania down the stretch. She took a week off here and there from campaigning because she thought she’d win the nomination and presidency, no matter what. She even complained because Bernie was beating her on the campaign trail and needed Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC to rig the primaries for her.
Hillary blames….well, everybody, according to the UK Daily Mail:
‘I couldn’t help but ask where those feelings of solidarity, outrage and passion had been during the election,’ Clinton writes in her new memoir, ‘What Happened.’
Clinton also goes after NBC’s ‘Today Show’ host Matt Lauer for his handling of a presidential forum, conducted on the U.S.S. Intrepid in New York last September.
She writes that she was ‘ticked off’ and ‘almost physically sick’ by Lauer’s persistent focus on her email scandal.
Another passage describes her great discomfort while Trump followed her around a presidential debate stage.
Another passage reveals how former President Obama, still in many ways the leading figure in the Democratic Party, gave her bad advice the night before the election.
‘You’ve got this. I’m so proud of you,’ Obama told her, Clinton writes.
Just hours later, Obama was counseling Clinton to concede on election night, Clinton writes, in a portion of the book reported by CNN. He didn’t want her to drag out the angry and prolonged campaign.
Clinton also takes a shot at another potential Democratic 2020 nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden, who deferred to her, helping hand her the nomination after she beat back a far weaker Sanders.
Something good is coming out of all of this, though. Hillary can’t run in 2020. She has now alienated even her strongest supporters and has almost no chance of winning them back. Besides, I believe she doesn’t want to become a three-time loser and even she can now see that she is totally unelectable.
As I look out over the possible candidates from the Democratic party, including Hillary, Bernie, Chief Liz Warren, Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, one thought keeps running through my head: “How the hell can I get the Botox and Geritol concessions for the 2020 Democratic national Convention?”
‘I drank my share of chardonnay. Taking a page from the pre-heart attack version of her husband, Clinton says she was ‘splurging on burgers and fries’ and ‘enjoying every bite.’
Clinton makes efforts to understand her loss, accepting some blame even while pointing the finger at others including rival Bernie Sanders and going after former FBI Director James Comey for ‘shivving’ her.
