The question on everyone's mind these days is, Is Hillary Clinton electable? Following a resounding loss in Iowa to her strongest competitor, even her husband, the venerable Bill Clinton, had second thoughts. And that’s coming from her strongest ally — and one who, as a presidential candidate himself in 1992, lost the Iowa caucus only to win the New Hampshire primary shortly thereafter.
The fact that he and others close to her would cast doubt as to the strength of her campaign, saying that the shortened period of time between the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries gives her little time to recover from her competitors’ momentum coming out of the caucus, is pretty revealing. Even more telling is the fact that she clearly lost so much confidence in herself, even to the point of openly sobbing about it on national television, reminding us of the antics of a spoiled socialite schoolgirl, unable to deal with disappointment because of her feelings of entitlement. Many don’t think this bodes well for a presidential candidate, to resort to sobbing when the campaign gets tough.
