Two extraordinary interviews yesterday, each of which suggests the gathering storm for the party of Obama-Clinton.
The first, with Politico’s Maggie Haberman, focused on Hillary’s “record” as Secretary of State. The transcript is here.
The second, with Chicago Tribune columnist and MSNBC panelist Clarence Page, also tried to elicit from a supporter of Hillary any detail as to Hillary’s achievements and then turned to the biggest story of the day –President Obama’s whooper of a lie about people being able to keep their insurance plans. That transcript is here.
Neither could produce a paragraph or even a complete sentence on Hillary’s successes as Secretary of State. Both noted she had traveled quite a lot, but as I noted to Haberman, she isn’t auditioning for the role of George Clooney for a remake of “Up In The Air.” A would-be president ought to have a “have-done” list at her fingertips.
Page had the same problem. Four years is a long time to spend at a place to leave only wreckage behind, but that’s what becomes obvious, clear away Benghazi specifically and Libya generally, not to mention Egypt and the entire Middle East plus fiascos with Russia and North Korea and you have a record of vast ineptitude. Hillary came, she saw (a lot of places) and she left. Her spinners will begin to work up a list no doubt, but right now it ought to be obvious, so soon after she left office. What is obvious is that she didn’t do anything worth remembering.
