Defeat Is Supposed to Be An Orphan
In her new memoir Clinton steps up to accept the blame for her failure before then blaming just about everyone else from former FBI director, James Comey, to Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and, of course, the tenor section of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and those "deplorables" especially the misogynists.
She was robbed, no doubt about it. Comey's clumsy email investigation might have been enough to hand Trump the win. But Obama, Biden, Bernie Sanders? Please, Hillary, man up.
Let's face it, the November runoff featured two of the least popular contenders in American presidential history. Hillary was one of those two least popular candidates. A lot of American voters simply didn't like her. According to recent surveys they still don't even after eight months of Trump's presidential buffoonery.
Among Democrats, Hillary's self-serving and bitter memoir is the book they hoped she would never write. Then again as we saw from Hillary and Bill during her first run for the Democratic nomination, those Clintons can be genuinely nasty little shits.
