Recently Bloomberg Politics and Purple Strategies held a focus group of Democrat voters in Iowa. They focused in on what average Iowa Democrats thought about the probability (and possibility) of a Hillary Clinton run for the White House in 2016. Surprisingly (he said sarcastically), the group seemed unenthused about the opportunity to vote for Hillary Clinton – though they did all seem to think that she would very likely win in 2016.
My favorite part, though, is that when asked to name one accomplishment of Hillary Clinton’s during her time as Secretary of State (at around the 1 minute mark in the video). The group is unable to come up with even one accomplishment. One man says, “I can’t name anything off the top of my head.”
The reason the group can’t come up with any of Hillary Clinton’s accomplishments is because she has none. Her greatest accomplishment in life is getting other people to think that she is accomplished. She has no significant legislative victory from her time in the Senate. Her time as Secretary of State was a complete and utter debacle that has left her stained with scandal. In fact, her biggest “success” was also a failure – remember “Hillarycare”? Democrats’ first real push for socialized healthcare crashed and burned… though was not nearly as disastrous as Obamacare.
In fact, the main theme that comes from Democrat supporters of Hillary Clinton is that she’s “tough” and that she’s “strong” and that she’s been around for a long time.
Hardly glowing praise.
