When you think about it, what has Hillary Clinton really achieved for the nation? Her tenures as a senator and Secretary of State lacked distinction. In her biggest moments – the 1993-1994 health reform push and her 2008 run for president, she’s fallen flat on her face.
But now the political experts say she nearly has a lock on the Democratic 2016 nomination. They’re fooling themselves.
That’s the theme of my latest piece for Politico, “Why Dems might reject Clinton in 2016.” I think they’re going to want a fresh face or even a sitting vice president – the two types of candidates they invariably choose.
Hope you have a chance to take a look.
