No one has to remind voters how “transcendentally bizarre” the 2016 presidential race has been. With two almost-nominees sporting the highest unfavorable ratings in modern history, it seems as though the majority of voters—Democrats and Republicans alike—are going to vote based on their intense dislike for the opposing party.
Maureen Dowd of the NYT calls it “A Weekend at Bernie’s.”
Hopeful acceptance of Hillary has shifted to amazed disbelief that she can’t put away Bernie. Given dynasty fatigue and Hillary’s age, many Democrats assumed that their front-runner would come out of the gate with a vision for the future that gave her campaign a fresh hue, instead of white papers tinkering around the edges. She should have been far over her husband’s bridge to the 21st century and way down the highway by now.
Instead, her big new idea is to put Bill in charge of the economy again (hopefully, with less Wall Street deregulation). Again with the two for the price of one.
Hillary can’t generate excitement on her own so she is relying on fear of Trump to get her into the White House. And Trump is relying on fear of everything to get him into the White House.
