Every day Republicans deal with lectures and hectoring on choosing our terrible candidate, but it’s past time for Democrats to admit they did the same. Democrats are thanking their lucky stars Hillary is not facing a candidate like Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz or Carly Fiorina.
The Democratic party could have had a more robust debate over who should be their nominee. Barack Obama wasn’t far into his second term when the Hillary coronation started. One can’t help but think what kind of position Democrats would be in now if Joe Biden was the Democratic nominee. Biden may be a buffoon, but he’s a likable buffoon and in today’s world of politics that goes a long way.
Even assuming Hillary wins, there will still be issues. The email scandal is not going to be resolved by next week, and even if the weight falls on Huma, it will still be a drag on Clinton. If the investigation stretches out, the country could be faced with the possibility of a new President taking the oath of office under a cloud of an FBI investigation. This is just what we know so far. There’s still the investigation into the Clinton Foundation that’s ongoing despite the efforts of the justice department to clamp down on the FBI’s efforts.
