How Bernie Sanders Threatens to Derail Hillary’s Sure Path to The White House
History has a funny way of repeating itself.
In Hillary Clinton’s bid for the Presidency, it could be her undoing.
While the Clinton Campaign uses symbolism and connections from past Democrat Presidents such as FDR, her husband, and Obama to craft the campaign message, they ignore the story of how one long-shot liberal challenger upset the path to the White House for a sure-thing incumbent President.
As Michael Goodwin, of the NY Post, reports, this surely must scare the Clinton Camp:
LBJ looked certain to be re-elected in 1968, until a Minnesota senator with a penchant for poetry named Eugene McCarthy shocked the world by getting 42 percent in the New Hampshire primary, against Johnson’s 49 percent. Less than three weeks later, the president famously declared that “I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your president.”
If there is a McCarthy-like figure on the scene today, it is Bernie Sanders, the scrappy underdog threatening to upset Hillary’s coronation.
The liberal voice of the party upsets the balance of the incumbent, or in Hillary’s case, the anointed one.
With all of Hillary’s baggage, doesn’t this almost seem inevitable?
