If Hillary Clinton were a publicly traded stock, its value would have dropped quite a lot in recent weeks. It started with the book tour, the "we were broke when we left the White House" statement, the Foundation and now the emails story.
Her value has dropped among Democrats, too. They fear that that there are just too many surprises when it comes to the Clintons.
Bill Clinton is also going to be a problem, in large part because Mr. Clinton doesn't understand that the show is over. He wants to stay on stage and soak up all of the attention. I am not the only one who is a bit scared of having Bill Clinton back in the White House.
The media has spent a lot of time discussing GOP problems. However, let's not overlook some of the Clintons' problems, and I'm not talking about Monica Lewinski or the Russian reset. This is from Roger Stone:
More problematic is the Clintons’ past behavior.There are a couple of other problems:
In fact, given the Clintons’ narrow escape in a slew of ethical scandals during the years of Bill’s governorship, presidency and post-presidency, I’d say the Clintons are pressing their luck.
No Clinton has been on the national general election ballot since 1996.
More than half of registered voters have no memory or knowledge of the Clinton presidency.
These voters can be educated during a campaign and everything about the Clintons will be under a magnifying glass. Hillary’s soaring poll numbers are her high watermark.
Her role in the Vince Foster death, Travelgate, and Waco will all be on the table. A re-examination will yield many facts not reported at the time.
Hillary’s co-presidency is not pretty.
1) Bill Clinton had Ross Perot in 1992. Hillary Clinton likely won't have anyone to divide the GOP vote as her husband did. In other words, she is not winning the election with 43% of the popular vote; and,
2) Bill Clinton is popular but can't get anyone elected. His endorsement had little value in 2014. In 2000, incumbent President Clinton couldn't even deliver Arkansas's 5 electoral votes to VP Gore. There is no evidence that Bill Clinton attracts votes outside of the Democrats' base.
And we have not spoken about her foreign policy yet! I can't wait to hear how she explains that!Of course, the GOP has to nominate a strong candidate. You can't beat somebody with nobody. Nevertheless, this is going to be a very different landscape than the time that Bill Clinton was elected in a 3-way race.
