Clinton Ran for President Because She Had “No Choice”
Success models often say that you can’t achieve the what, or even the how, until you know the why. Every goal needs a purpose greater than the goal itself.
It appears the Democrats are beginning to get some hindsight in that respect.
After a scorching election defeat for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and plenty of Monday morning quarterbacking, vice president Joe Biden is coming clean. Biden told the Los Angeles Times last week what he couldn’t say while he was campaigning for Hillary.
She didn’t have a burning ambition to be president and lead the country, and his gut told him it would cost her the election.
“I don’t think she ever really figured it out,” Biden said. “She thought she had no choice but to run. That, as the first woman who had an opportunity to win the presidency, I think it was a real burden on her.”
Hmm. “No choice” is not a reason to be the leader of the free world, even for so good a cause as gender equality. We need more than role models; we need bold and brave leaders.
