Tougher on Bill
“Hillar y Clinton will have nightmares about her botched run for the presidency; it’ll be worse for Bill Clinton,” Albert R. Hunt writes at www.bloomberg.com.
“Senator Clinton’s impressive Pennsylvania primary victory [on April 22] exposed Barack Obama’s general-election vulnerabilities. However, there is nothing to suggest Clinton would be a stronger nominee,” Mr. Hunt said.
“Thus, Obama remains the clear favorite to win the nomination, and the New York senator’s painful legacy, in the most important professional endeavor of her life, will have been picking the wrong people and putting together a deeply flawed campaign.
“In time she will have fresh opportunities; perhaps a Senate leadership role, or she may emulate Edward M. Kennedy as a truly great lawmaker, or, if Obama loses, make another run for the White House with lessons learned.
“It’s going to be tougher for her husband. The most talented and resilient politician of this generation has damaged his standing with gaffes, political miscalculations and a series of paranoiac, volcanic eruptions.”
