If you were wondering what a Hillary Clinton presidency might look like, then you haven’t been paying much attention.
This past week on CBS This Morning reporter Nancy Cordes reminded all of the viewers that it had been many, many moons since Hillary Clinton had actually held a public press conference. Many, many moons.
“As Clinton counts down the days, her campaign strategy is to play it safe. She has not had an official conference in 258 days. Her last network interview was nearly three weeks ago where she got tripped up again answering questions about her e-mails.”
The CBS reporter then recapped the mess Clinton made during her last media appearance when she told a bald-faced lie on Fox News.
Nancy Cordes: As Clinton counts down the days, her campaign strategy is to play it safe. She has not had a conference in 258 days. Her last network interview was nearly three weeks ago where she got tripped up again answering questions about her e-mails.
Hillary Clinton: Director Comey said that my answers were truthful.
Nancy Cordes: Her running mate has been doing a series of interviews and was asked Wednesday about his assertion in 2002 that President Clinton should have resigned following the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Tim Kaine: 20 years ago, I was disappointed like a lot of folks were. But, I’ll tell you, there’s no reason to litigate problems 20 years ago and what Americans want to talk about what do we do today and tomorrow.
Nancy Cordes: Clinton has seen firsthand that voter complacency can have consequences. She was leading in Michigan by 20 points before that primary earlier this year, but ended up losing because some of her supporters may have felt she didn’t need them to go out and vote. Her campaign, Margaret, wants to prevent that kind of thing from happening in November.
By “play it safe” Cordes means that Clinton and Kaine will appear to media as little as possible over the next three months. It also means that this is likely the strategy that the Clinton team will employ if they win the White House in November. Can you imagine? The first time Hillary’s presidency runs into trouble her team will decide to hide her away from the American people (and media) until it all blows over.
This does not bode well for America.
