Hillary Clinton has been dominating news about Democrats lately. Her new book is full of new accusations of blame for why she lost and some Democrats are sick of hearing it. Even people who worked for her!
The Hill reports:
Clinton’s score-settling frustrates Democrats
Hillary Clinton is settling old scores in a campaign tell-all book — and angering some Democrats in the process.
Excerpts from “What Happened,” the Clinton campaign memoir scheduled to be released next week, find her letting loose on the Democratic Party’s most popular figures and venting frustration with a process that culminated in her shocking election defeat by Donald Trump.
In the book, Clinton says she was put in a “straightjacket” during the primary by former President Obama, who she writes advised her not to attack Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), her rival in the Democratic primary, out of fear it would divide the party ahead of the general election.
Clinton writes that she bristled at former Vice President Joe Biden’s suggestion that she failed to adequately convey the Democratic Party’s commitment to helping the middle class.
And Clinton unloads on Sanders, mocking his policy proposals as pie-in-the-sky fantasies and ripping his supporters on social media — the so-called Bernie bros — as sexist…
Even some of Clinton’s allies have grown weary of her insistence on re-litigating the 2016 campaign at a time when the Democratic Party is looking to forge a new identity in the age of Trump.
“The best thing she could do is disappear,” said one former Clinton fundraiser and surrogate who played an active role at the convention. “She’s doing harm to all of us because of her own selfishness. Honestly, I wish she’d just shut the f— up and go away.”
This is probably the clearest indication that Hillary is never going to run again. If people who supported her in 2016 are saying this now, she has definitely worn out her welcome in the Democratic Party.
