Tougher on Bill

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

“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

“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.”
