This sentiment is exactly why Hillary has no chance to win the nomination, let alone the election. The Democrat party is on the cusp of their own civil war much like the Republicans are experiencing. They are now where the Republicans were in 2007.
Hillary Clinton is seen as poison by half of the Democrat base.
Camille Paglia: “It remains baffling how anyone would think that Hillary Clinton is our party’s best chance”
As a registered Democrat, I am praying for a credible presidential candidate to emerge from the younger tier of politicians in their late 40s. A governor with executive experience would be ideal. It’s time to put my baby-boom generation out to pasture! We’ve had our day and managed to muck up a hell of a lot. It remains baffling how anyone would think that Hillary Clinton (born the same year as me) is our party’s best chance. She has more sooty baggage than a 90-car freight train. And what exactly has she ever accomplished — beyond bullishly covering for her philandering husband? She’s certainly busy, busy and ever on the move — with the tunnel-vision workaholism of someone trying to blot out uncomfortable private thoughts.http://www.salon.com/2013/08/21/cami...s_best_chance/
As far as I’m concerned, Hillary disqualified herself for the presidency in that fist-pounding moment at a congressional hearing when she said, “What difference does it make what we knew and when we knew it, Senator?” Democrats have got to shake off the Clinton albatross and find new blood.
