Piece of advice, Hillary?
Lose the Silver Fox with his foot in his mouth.
Allowing Bill Clinton to lash himself to your campaign did you no favor in 2008. This year, its an even worse idea.
As everyone within shouting distance knows, I am a HUGE Bernie Sanders supporter.
Nevertheless, I recognize Hillary’s competence and experience. If, after a fair primary season, she is the nominee, I will support her.
That being said, I never liked Bill and am liking him less every time he opens his mouth.
What Hillary has to understand is that many Bernie supporters don’t dislike her; but this is despite her husband, who falls just a little to the left of George Bush in the greater scheme of things. He does nothing to burnish her progressive credentials, if that’s as important to her as it seems to be.
Worse than Monica Lewinsky, he gave us NAFTA and “Don’t ask, don’t tell”…which probably was his personal motto.
Under Boyfriend Bill, the rich got still richer and the myth of American exceptionalism was on steroids.
If it’s all about summoning some sort of racial divide based on voting habits from twenty years ago, that seems more than a little demeaning to minority voters who are, after all, individuals whose lives have been shaped, much like everyone else’s have, by events and emerging issues from the intervening years.
Please Hillary, PLEASE: send the big boy home.
He will be toxic for your campaign and, by extension, the whole Democratic party.
