“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for”
Hillary is doing everything you would expect her to do if she were preparing another presidential run in 2020.
She and Bill just announced a national speaking tour, she attacked Kavanaugh, and she makes sure to keep herself in a news cycle just about every week.
The latest is an interview Hillary gave to CNN about the Kavanaugh nomination, and the loss of civility:
Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that civility in America can only begin again if Democrats win back the House or Senate this fall.
“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton said in an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”
Clinton alluded to previous controversies — like the 2000 election recount to the “swift boat” attacks against John Kerry in the 2004 presidential election to the confirmation of Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh — as evidence of what she sees as hardball tactics by Republicans.
“I remember what they did to me for 25 years — the falsehoods, the lies, which unfortunately people believe because the Republicans have put a lot of time, money, and effort in promoting them,” Clinton said. “So when you’re dealing with an ideological party that is driven by the lust for power, that is funded by corporate interests who want a government that does its bidding, it’s — you can be civil, but you can’t overcome what they intend to do unless you win elections.”

Hillary wants to be “the fighter” this time around. But she’ll have to fight against other fighters like Elizabeth Warren, Spartacus, Kamala Harris, and the Creepy Porn Lawyer.DONATE
