Well, yeah, right Hillary

Hillary Clinton blasts Sen. Bernie Sanders in a new documentary, saying “nobody likes him” and declining in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter to say whether she would endorse and campaign for him if he’s the Democratic 2020 nominee.

“He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,” Clinton says in the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”

It is of course possible to wonder what Hills herself did get done. Sure, she got elected to the Senate. She raised a lot of money in politics and through the Foundation. But actually getting done? Her health care reform didn’t do anywhere. I think it’s right that there was one single – and minor – bill she got through the Senate. Anyone recall grand victories as Sec State? The foundation enabled Bill to do something in Haiti, didn’t it? Something or other.

And how much did all this cost? Couple of billion, easy.

Y’know, might have been better of that remained elsewhere and did something interesting. Possibly. You know, designed a better diaper or something?

  1. Anyone recall grand victories as Sec State?

    She got an embassy destroyed . . . no, wait – that was one of ours.

  2. Tim, Give her some credit

    She achieved the murder of a US Ambassador through her lies and inaction

    Rag heads were very appreciative

  3. What do most senators achieve? Nothing, I suspect. For all his flaws, Bernie has managed to shift the Overton window. Hillary never even tried.

    What this tells us is that establishment Democrats – as represented by Obama and Clinton – are starting to panic over Warren’s weakness relative to Sanders. Warren represents the Clinton-Obama faction of the party, and it is dawning on them Warren simply isn’t making the sort of inroads into Sanders’ constituency that they’d expected. It is no accident that after Obama spent much of November and December telegraphing his support for Warren over Sanders (to absolutely no effect) that we now have Hillary jumping into the fray. Sanders represents the same sort of existential threat to the Democratic Party establishment that Trump was to the Republican Party establishment.

    What is also interesting about this is that it is clear that neither Obama nor Clinton think Biden is a force to be reckoned with. If they did, they wouldn’t be drawing knives on Sanders just yet.

  5. Andrew M, good point.

    Dennis, ditto, albeit Steyn’s been saying the same thing for three or four years.

    A Sanders-Trump showdown would be worth it. My money’d be on the Donmister. But he’d have a bit of a fight.

  6. Dennis: Oppressor, Warmonger, Capitalist and Consumer of Petroleum Products

    A Sanders-Trump showdown would be worth it. My money’d be on the Donmister. But he’d have a bit of a fight.

    It would be Nixon-McGovern all over again. Establishment Democrats and their money people would sit it out and let Sanders go down in flames. Which he would. Then they’d come after AOC and the Democratic Socialist contingent with knives glistening… Bernie loses because it’s in almost everybody’s best interests that he does.

    If you are a Republican and a Trumpster, you gotta be rooting for Bernie Sanders.

  7. So lily-white privileged wealthy old Mrs. Rodham-Clinton is not going to campaign for lily-white privileged wealthy old Bernie Saunders?

    Bernie must be breathing a sigh of relief ! He really dodged a bullet there, because (apart from bought-and-paid-for presstitutes) no-one likes Hillary.

  8. Don’t they have the nomination rigged by giving ‘super votes’ to establishment central party types so the bar for a populist candidate to get the nomination is incredibly high, basically how Hillary ‘won’ it last time around. Do wonder if you can claim Trump can’t be interfering with the election unless Biden is selected as the nominee anyway. Isn’t accusing him of interference tantamount to claiming Biden is the best candidate to beat him in the first place.
