Take it with an ounce of campaignism, but here’s what a fellow Democrat has to say about Hillary’s claim of having the kind of experience needed to be President:
“There is no doubt that Bill Clinton had faith in her and consulted with her on issues, in the same way that I would consult with Michelle, if there were issues,” the Illinois senator told “Nightline” co-anchor Terry Moran.
“On the other hand, I don’t think Michelle would claim that she is the best qualified person to be a U.S. senator by virtue of me talking to her on occasion about the work I’ve done,” he said.
And he’s got a point. I guess with Hillary’s rationale, Melinda Gates could sit down and pound out the next version of Microsoft and Deanna Favre could lead the Packers to the next Superbowl.
Of course, as Obama points out, she’s selective in which of her husband’s accomplishments she’s claiming for her own experience.
I think the fact of the matter is that Senator Clinton is claiming basically the entire eight years of the Clinton presidency as her own, except for the stuff that didn’t work out, in which case she says she has nothing to do with it.”
Sounds like even some on the Left understand what Clinton is all about. But it will be interesting to hear how he feels about her “experience” when she becomes the party’s nominee.
