In 1992 Bill Clinton had the charisma thing but he also had the message thing. His message was “It’s the economy stupid.” Hillary isn’t Bill, and it may be partly due to the Bernie thing. Bernie Sanders, promising everything to everyone, well, at least as much as 18 trillion in new spending according to The Wall Street Journal, started making poor Hillary look down right conservative. How can Hillary compete? So instead of a focus, she’s spinning wildly, like a grandmother with her finger locked down on the trigger of an automatic weapon, spraying bullets in every direction, unable to relax her grip. Her focus so far includes climate change, LGBT rights, gun control, free college, minimum wage, family leave, path to citizenship, and even UFO’s. Taken one at a time, they’re phenomenal liberal causes. Taken as a collective list of goals, it’s just plain socialism.
If Hillary does manage to hone in on one target to focus her campaign, the going may still be tough. There’s still the charisma thing.
