Clinton appeared at the press tour in support of the Hulu four-part documentary series “Hillary,” which details the former U.S. Senator and Secretary of State’s time on the 2016 Presidential campaign trail through never-before-seen footage. The series also features interviews with Bill and Chelsea Clinton, as well as friends and journalists.
She fielded a range of questions from the audience, including what she feels the most important message of the series will ultimately be.
“I think the most important message is we are…in a real struggle with a form of politics that is incredibly negative, exclusive, mean-spirited, and its going to be up to every voter, not only people who vote in Democratic primaries to recognize that this is no ordinary time,” she said. “This is an election that will have such profound impact so take your vote seriously. And for the Democratic voters, try to vote for the person you think is most likely to win because at the end of the day that is what will matter. And not just the popular vote, but the electoral college too.”
That last line drew laughs from the audience, as Clinton infamously beat President Donald Trump in the popular vote in 2016 but lost the electoral college vote.
I think this is interesting advice coming from a person who asked Democrats to take a risk by nominating a woman even though we have never had a female president.
I mean it is hard to disagree with the logic, but if we take it then aren’t we stuck with Joe Biden?
Personally I am leaning towards the candidate with the most to offer in moving the country forward, and whose intellect I think sets them apart from the other candidates, and that is Elizabeth Warren.
I also really feel this is the year of the woman and that female voters will turn out in droves to support another woman running against the misogynistic Donald Trump.
But I do not have a crystal ball so I cannot predict who in fact has the very best chance against Donald Trump.
I mean for all we know the Trump campaign may have all kinds of real or manufactured dirt on Biden that they are just waiting to trot out.
P.S. Here’s the trailer for the documentary on Hulu.
