Forget policy positions, etc.

Hillary Clinton is just bad as a candidate.

She’s awkward, artificial, superficial, and awkward (but I repeat myself).

She proved it with the disastrous book rollout and insistence that she’s not really rich and struggled after she and Bill left the White House.

Now she decided to distance herself from Obama’s failed foreign policy by turning Obama into her George Bush — the guy who gets blamed for everything.

But now she’s backtracking after Obama’s team hit back at her, including bringing up her Iraq War vote.

Via Politico:

Hillary Clinton called President Barack Obama on Tuesday to “make sure he knows that nothing she said was an attempt to attack him” when she recently discussed her views on foreign policy in an interview with The Atlantic, according to a statement from a Clinton spokesman.

The statement comes amid tension between the Clinton and Obama camps in the wake of the interview. It also comes as Obama and Clinton, his former secretary of state, are due to cross paths at a social gathering Wednesday night in Martha’s Vineyard.

In the interview, Clinton dismissed the Obama administration’s self-described foreign policy principle of “Don’t do stupid stuff.” And while she also praised Obama several times, Clinton nonetheless called his decision not to assist Syrian rebels early on a “failure.”

Hillary Clinton was for her own foreign policy, before she was against it.
