7. Hillary distancing herself from Obama is as stupid as Gore's 2000 distancing from her husband.

 

Hillary distancing herself from Obama is as stupid as Gore's 2000 distancing from her husband, former president Bill Clinton. Now don't get me wrong, I am not an unabashed fan of either Bill Clinton or Barack Obama, but they each deserve credit where it is due.

During the 2000 campaign, the economy was doing pretty well, the world was relatively at peace, and and WJ Clinton was quite well liked even after the impeachment hearings, blue dress, etc. Why Gore chose to hold that legacy at arms' length is completely beyond me. Some Party apparatchiks around here love to hate on Nader (rather unjustifiably) and/or the Supeme Court's awful Bush v. Gore decision (entirely deserving of hate and contempt), but above and beyond all that, Gore ran a truly awful campaign, and (I hate to say it) pretty much deserved to lose.

I hate to say this too, but I predict that if Hillary gets the nomination, she too will run an awful campaign (if 2008 and the present is any reasonable foreshadowing) and then will lose. She is already squandering her legacy and the resources available to her. A former Secretary of State has no good reason to run against her former boss, especially given that he will not be on the ballot ever again.
