Hillary Clinton felt compelled to run for president despite lacking a clear campaign vision, Vice President Joe Biden argued in an interview published Thursday.
“I don’t think she ever really figured it out,” Biden told the Los Angeles Times’ Mike Memoli. “And by the way, I think it was really hard for her to decide to run.”
Biden said Clinton likely felt obliged to run for president and that the historic nature of her bid weighed on her decision-making.
“She thought she had no choice but to run. That, as the first woman who had an opportunity to win the presidency, I think it was a real burden on her,” Biden said.
Thursday’s interview was the latest assessment from the Obama administration about why Democrats fared so poorly in this year’s vote. Biden, along with President Barack Obama, have argued their party didn’t pay enough attention to working-class voters outside large urban centers.
Biden — who said in the interview he, like Obama, was planning to remain living part-time in Washington after January — said voters were looking for a candidate who could connect to their struggles.
In 2020 Hillary will be lucky if she can walk with a cane.
Yeah it was hard for her to decide to run... she couldn't hold a press conference due to her brain health issues, she couldn't navigate a curb due to her brain health issues... oh wait, I guess what I'm saying is that her brain is too sick for her to function as an adult but that doesn't disqualify her to be Democrat POTUS... Was it hard for her to decide to shove Sanders off the stage? No, her women's club otherwise known as the DNC had no problem with that decision...
No one else could figure out why she was running either. She has to much baggage to carry, anyone with at least one neuron working knows she is a crook and a murderer through her inaction with Benghazi resulting in the deaths of 4-5 U.S. citizens.
She was running because her name was Clinton, and somehow thought that was enough
"Uncle" Joe is and has been clueless. "The coughing c*nt" had to run. She needed to win to repay, with favors and access, the foreign money she received through the Clinton foundation and while she was Secretary of state. Check out how the "donations" are coming in now that she has no path to power. Perhaps SHE will now become a "Vince Foster/Anthony Scalia" statistic, we can only hope.
I think the bigger punishment is to have Hillary live with herself.
Who knew uncle joe was a political genus ?
What the hell has Biden EVER figured out ? He is a lame brain. Hillary was sure she would win by playing the gender card.
Hillary knew exactly what she would do if she became president. She would do exactly what George Soros tells her to do. Just like Obama did.
Hillary even said herself that she would have Bill run the economy if she won.
When Biden said that Clinton didn't really figure out why she was running...was Biden talking about Bill or Hillary.
