Krauthammer: Democrats Overestimate Hillary

Hillary Clinton recently declared, “Don’t let anybody tell you that, uh, you know, it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.” Political analyst Charles Krauthammer says this is evidence Clinton is oversold as a political talent. Barack Obama made a similar point in 2008, Krauthammer said. “He botched it. Now, she got it worse. Hers was like a ‘D’ on a scale of D to A. … [I]t is going to haunt her. … It will be shown over and over again. But it does show you how much the Democrats overestimate her skill as a politician. … [I]f you can’t make the elementary liberal argument about the role of government without having this ridiculous statement that jobs are not created by corporations, then you are not going to be a good candidate, as she showed in ‘08. She is a person who said in the White House we were dead broke. We had trouble paying the mortgages on our houses. If you are going to plead poverty, you don’t refer to your homes in the plural. That’s pretty elementary. She is not getting the elementary stuff.”
