Her voice is shrill, but that is not it. Her laugh is forced and fake, but that is not it. Her body is gnomelike, but that is not it. Her age is approaching 70, but that is not it. Her Cabinet tenure was a disaster, but that is not it. The reason Democrats are rejecting Hillary for a second time is not even about her. There is a one-word explanation, which no one else will mention.
Because Democrats sold out everything they believe in to save the first President Clinton, they are unwilling to nominate a second one. But it is more than his commission of perjury. Lewinsky is part of a long trail of scandal.
Like the cloud of dust that follows Pigpen in the "Peanuts" comic strip, scandal dogs Hillary. Cattle futures. Whitewater. Paula Jones. Lewinsky. Benghazi. Email. I am probably overlooking a few.
Remember no drama Obama?
That is why Democrats are looking for a way out. Traditional politicians bailed because Hillary's campaign had a Scrooge McDuck swimming pool filled with gold coins. But Bernie dared and he has her on the ropes.
A Bernie-Donald battle is not as unlikely today as it was three weeks ago.
