“Two years since that loss, Mrs. Clinton remains broadly unpopular. As of late September, favorbility rating still hovered at 36 percent, down several points from where it was at the time of the election.”

From The New York Times


“Democrats watching Clinton’s moves are conflicted about what to make of her post-candidate public life.  On one hand, they argue, Clinton’s attacks on Trump, and interviews that inevitably revisit the transgressions of the 1990s, are widely seen as unhelpful to the Democratic Party at this juncture – a selfish pose for someone whose approval rating hasn’t budged above 38 perent since the election, and who remains a ready target for Trump to use to whip up his base.”

“On the other hand, some Democrats say, why should the woman who won the popular vote in 2016 – 62,523,126 votes, to be precise, the biggest number of votes in history with the exception of President Barack Obama – be silenced at a time of great public discourse?”

A Sarcastic Yes

“Hillary Clinton is 70. She, 69-year-old Elizabeth Warren, 75-year-old Joe Biden, and 77-year-old Bernie Sanders are the party’s liveliest, most dynamic figures, right up there with its Capitol Hill leaders: 78-year-old Nancy Pelosi, 79-year-old Steny Hoyer, and 85-year-old Dianne Feinstein, who is running for reelection. If the party is going to reimplement the New Deal, why shouldn’t it be led by people who lived through it?”
