You Know It's Bad For Clinton


When even Tayor Marsh says she blew it. The Bosnia lie is a microcosm of the experience exaggeration on which the entire rationale of her candidacy lies. Clinton does have one solid substantive executive experience and the result of it was that she effectively killed universal healthcare for well over a decade. And she has one transcendent legislative judgment call, Iraq, and it was catastrophically wrong. This is her record on the kind of big issues that define a presidency. Everything else is her husband, and her familiarity. And her life has been one very long series of networking and diligent study and good intentions and excellent constituency work. She could not inspire a rugby team to a piss-up. In ordinary times, she'd make a B - Angela Merkel with some serious credibility issues. And these are not ordinary times.
