1. She represents the worst part of a corrupt and incompetent administration. Her accomplishments as secretary of state were the rise of Putin, the rise of the Islamic State, and the collection of foreign bribes through the Clinton Foundation.
2. She is not a liked lady.
3. She is a terrible campaigner.
But the most important tool in his arsenal is that photo of the Clintons and the Trumps.
He knows her. He paid for her services. She can be bought. He can't. That means something in a nation that is broken. The president failed to protect us. Congress failed to protect us from him. The Supreme Court failed to protect us from him and Congress. And yet this woman and the rest raked the money in and partied with billionaires like it was 19-99.
I laugh at the proposal that a nation in times of peril will turn to the wife of a good-time Charlie president's whose chief accomplishment was seducing an intern. But that is the conventional wisdom from Washington this morning.
Elsewhere? From Roger L. Simon:
I wouldn't want to be Mrs. Clinton at this moment. Her dreams of justifying her years of personal humiliation with a presidential victory are about to be thrashed as thoroughly as were those of the fifteen other Trump competitors on the Republican side.We will hear about polls, and the same people who swore last year he cannot win the nomination will insist he cannot win this year.
Maybe they are right this time.
Ask them the odds he won't win.
Then say OK, let's bet. I doubt they will offer to give you the odds they just cited.
The race will more likely be close than not be close. And Trump could lose. I have been wrong before.
But Americans know they are in danger if they continue down this path to socialism -- a nation run by incompetents with Harvard and Yale degrees, who can be bought; just write out the check to the Clinton Foundation.
