Should Democrats be Worried About Running Hillary?

Should Democrats be Worried About Running Hillary?

Mrs. Clinton had a very bad week.

It’s just a given that Hillary Clinton will get the Democratic nomination if she runs in 2016 but last week must be giving some Democrats second thoughts.

This editorial from Investor’s Business Daily outlines the problem:

Dems Face Hard Choices After Hillary’s Awful Book Tour Week

If Hillary Clinton’s much ballyhooed — and ultimately disastrous — national book tour is any indication, Democrats face some hard choices in the months ahead about whom they can run for president.

You can’t blame Clinton for scheduling her “Hillary Week” at a time when there was so much real news going on. But she certainly deserves blame for the fact that the only coverage she managed to get from her book tour was all bad.

Even before her tour got started, reviewers — many of whom you’d expect to be cheerleading for Hillary — were instead viciously hammering her book, “Hard Choices.”

Politico’s Mike Allen, for example, called it a “newsless snore” that will “fuel the notion that politics infuses every part of her life.” John Dickerson at Slate said it was “the low-salt, low-fat, low-calorie offering with vanilla pudding as the dessert.”

From there her week went downhill.

Let’s not forget the disastrous NPR interview.

John Hinderaker writes at Power Line:

If I Were a Democrat, I Would Be Worried About Hillary

The Democrats have a Hillary Clinton problem. She is, at the moment, their only plausible presidential contender for 2016. The clownish Joe Biden apparently is her chief rival, and when pressed to identify a possible new face, the only one the Dems can come up with is the Governor of Maryland, Martin O’Malley, whom hardly any voters have heard of. So the party has a great deal riding on Hillary’s supposedly powerhouse candidacy.

Even Mad Magazine is piling on:

If nothing else, the last week has shown that Hillary Clinton is not as inevitable as some would have us believe.

It couldn’t happen to a sweeter gal – or a more deserving criminal organization, I mean political party.

I am sorry to say, I think she will run and win. The left is in love with the Clintons and many women will vote for her just because she is a women and they get their dreamboat Bill back in the White House.

    Not so sure she has the “female” vote locked up. The lib women I know don’t seem to think too highly of her. And you know what they say about women being the harshest judges of other women . . . .

      I hope you are right. Many women do not like the fact she “stayed with the serial philandering Slick Willy”.

If she were smart, she wouldn’t run, but then she’s never been all that bright. Her crash and burn trip will be fun to watch and her book probably won’t do all that well.

“Do you want an indifferent President?”

I think we should all keep quiet and let the Democrats nominate her.

The Democrats I know have no intention of running Hillary. The only reason she is being given attention is to distract the Republicans. Their candidate is Elizabeth Warren.

    Donb, that is what I see.

    I see a 2008 Obama-crime primary. Hillary will be “used” to drum up support and “money” from what few supporters she still has (which may be far fewer then the Dims think). Then the Dem Machine will steal the primary delegates for Lizze Borden, er…Warren ala Obama 2008 Dem primary.
