This fellow has it right. It couldn’t have been otherwise. She would have to fight above her weight to counter Trump, which is why Trump was the ideal Republican candidate. None of the others would have punched like him
There aren’t many people on the planet who hate Donald Trump – and love Hillary Clinton – with the Savonarola intensity of a David Brock.
But the Democratic dark-arts impresario has come to believe, in the harsh light of last month’s bitter loss, that Clinton’s biggest problem was simply not being more like Trump, at least when it came to dealing with the press.
But in an extended clear-the-decks session on POLITICO’s “Off Message” podcast, he aired a long list of grievances against Clinton’s Brooklyn-based campaign for not defending her forcefully enough.
She was a dodge-’em candidate, nasty but without staying power. Flawed everything else, including as wretch of a wife, putting up with a wretch of a husband, and finally fatally flawed candidate.
(Not to say he would not have beaten any other, but who the heck might that other have been? Which says so much about her party. So much, as Trump would say, repeating himself to great effect.)
