After the left’s disastrous loss to Donald Trump during the 2016 election, it became abundantly clear that the the biggest mistake the Democratic Party made was running Hillary Clinton as their candidate of choice.
The Democratic National Committee, who has their thumb jammed in unsavory places rather than on the pulse of America, truly believed with their coal black hearts that this country wanted another Clinton in the White House, a mistake of epic proportions that ended up costing them everything.
In fact, they were so dedicated to this strategy they bent over backwards to ensure Sen. Bernie Sanders didn’t get the nomination, even though he was the favorite candidate.
Have liberals learned from their mistake?
It seems the New York Times has at least.
But the New York Times did just that on Monday, running a story headlined: “Hillary and Bill Clinton Go Separate Ways for 2018 Midterm Elections.”
The piece starts out with a little nostalgia, noting that the Clintons were once “the most powerful brand in Democratic politics.” Then it turns dark.Advertisement - story continues below
But in the 2018 election campaign, Hillary and Bill Clinton have veered in sharply different directions. Mrs. Clinton appears determined to play at least a limited role in the midterms, bolstering longtime allies and raising money for Democrats in safely liberal areas. Her husband has been all but invisible.
And both have been far less conspicuous than in past election cycles, but for different reasons: Mrs. Clinton faces distrust on the left, where she is seen as an avatar of the Democratic establishment, and raw enmity on the right. Mr. Clinton has been largely sidelined amid new scrutiny of his past misconduct with women.
The story then declares that the couple “reeks of the past and [Democrats] fear that their unpopularity with conservative-leaning and independent voters could harm Democrats in close races.” Ouch. As evidence, the piece points out that while there is a Democratic primary election for a Republican-held House seat in Little Rock, Ark. — where the two were once from before they became New Yorkers — not a single one of the four candidates running “has reached out to seek the Clintons’ support.”
The piece went on to note that while Hillary will still play “a t least a limited role in the midterms,” this will not be the case for Bill who is “far less welcome on the trail, with his unpopularity among Republicans compounded by new skepticism on the left about his treatment of women and allegations of sexual assault.”
It’s amazing to see the NY Times finally, even for a brief moment in time, set aside their glaring bias and admit the absolute truth about the Clintons. Like it or not, Bill and Hillary have become poison, so much so that if a Democratic candidate wants to have a chance of winning, they need to distance themselves from the Clintons.
In light of this, it’s time for these two to just bow out of the public and retire from politics. They won’t, but they should.
