More woes for Hillary as the NY Times’ Frank Rich, a predictable and sometimes vociferous liberal voice, bludgeons Clinton for her recent attacks on the O Man. If the likes of Rich aren’t with her, she may be left with little but AARP-ish white women and, she must pray, most of Texas’ Hispanics.
As for countering what she sees as the empty Obama brand of hope, she offers only a chilly void: Abandon hope all ye who enter here. This must be the first presidential candidate in history to devote so much energy to preaching against optimism, against inspiring language and — talk about bizarre — against democracy itself. No sooner does Mrs. Clinton lose a state than her campaign belittles its voters as unrepresentative of the country.
