Why Hillary Clinton LOST in 2016 - Trump Era

Lets Get Real:

IF you are interested in politics you will read Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes’s new book on the 2016 Campaign, Shattered, it so popular by book shop had to wait in till it was being sent out again by his stockist.   It can be argued that in modern politics, the elections of 2000 and 2016 are the most interesting, Vice - President Al Gore should have won, the US was at peace the economy was going well, his one problem from his perspective was his boss, President Clinton has just about survived Impeachment, and thus the Gore Campaign wanted some distance from the Candidate Gore and the President.   It has been argued that was a mistake, that Bill Clinton was still popular, and could have helped in the South, but even Gore could not win his own home State, thus he failed to get the Presidency.   In 2016 was the turn of Hillary Clinton, the wife of Bill, former Senator and Secretary of State.  Bill Clinton told her to go after the White Vote, she did not listen, and thus lost the rust belt States.   What ever you think about Bill, he has politics in his blood, he understands the process.  Could HRC give it another try in 2020, never say never!
