"It's a horrible prospect to ask yourself, 'What if? What if?' But if certain things happen between now and the election, particularly with respect to terrorism, that will automatically give the Republicans an advantage again, no matter how badly they have mishandled it, no matter how much more dangerous they have made the world," Clinton told supporters in Concord.His response to this is exactly right, worthy even of the title Quote of the Day:
"So I think I'm the best of the Democrats to deal with that," she added.
I think the Democrat best positioned to deal with GOP political mobilization in a post-attack environment is going to be the one who isn't reflexively inclined to see failed Republican policies resulting in the deaths of hundreds of Americans as a political advantage for the Republicans.This is a huge problem for Hillary Clinton. She's still too entrenched in the DLC milieu which says that the only way to get Americans to accept liberal ideas is to disguise them as conservative ideas. Hillary's claim is that she's the Democratic candidate who most seems like a Republican. And once again I am forced to wonder why people should vote for a Democrat who is like a Republican when they will have an actual Republican for whom to vote.
