Internal memos, obtained by Ye Olde Journalist, show that the nuclear option being proposed is using former President Bill Clinton and the nations love affair with him as the ultimate trump card. John Podesta, campaign chairman, stated, “Hillary needs to push this election as on of a third Bill Clinton Administration.” Dennis Cheng added, “She can show this as a Bill-Hillary administration much like the William and Mary co-monarchy in England.”
President Clinton still has a charisma that Hillary’s campaign advisers fear that their candidate does not have. Plus, since Presidents Obama and Clinton share a mutual hatred of each other, her advisers believe that this would be the perfect break from Obama’s shadow that Hillary desperately needs.
In another comment, Podesta laments the lack of any charisma his candidate exhibits. “The very reason that others like Bernie [Sanders] are polling better and better is because we have a charisma problem. We do not seem to be in touch with people the way Bill or Obama can do. In order to win the nomination and the general election, we must discover our charisma.”
With the election only a year and four months away, Hillary’s campaign seems to still be searching for an answer as to why their candidate is not more loved.
