When Bill Clinton first appeared on the national stage, he brought a nickname with him,"Slick Willie". Twenty five years later, Slick Willie has disappeared. Bill Clinton isn’t slick anymore. Based on this article in the NYT's, 'Worked Up Willie' is probably a better fit for him.
In an interview today on CNN, Worked Up Willie does his best to take pressure off Hillary by saying:
“I have never seen so much expended on so little. She said she was sorry that her personal email caused all this confusion. And she’d like to give the election back to the American people. I think it will be all right. But it’s obvious what happened.”The problem Bill has, that Hillary has really, is what they can’t say.
Hillary can’t say that she’s sorry for compromising the United States’ national security by exposing the United States’ sources and methods to hacking invasions by China and Russia. Hillary can’t really say that she’s done everything possible to keep United States’ satellite imagery out of Chinese and Russians’ hands.
Bill Clinton knows these things. That’s why he’s attempting to deflect attention away from those questions. He’s doing for Hillary what Hillary did for Bill during Monicagate. The problem is that she isn’t the skilled politician he was. People don’t trust her. They don’t like her, either. That’s because Hillary hit the trifecta of negativity. She isn’t likable. She isn’t trustworthy. She’s definitely a terrible politician. You can do much worse than that.
