Hillary had more popular votes than Obama in the 2008 primaries. Many of her supporters say Obama stole that election. Google it.
This is the Clinton machine. They circulated a story a while back Hillary had been offered the VP slot with Obama willing to dump Biden. But she turned it down.
This is political hardball. It’s Hillary 2016 or Obama 2012 that’ll take a huge political hit over this absolute security meltdown resulting in four dead Americans.
So we are seeing two distinct narratives from the two factions.
You’re right, hillary had the nomination ‘ in the bag’ until Iowa where she didnt bother to keep her campaign running at full strength afterwards because of her arrogance. She’s as politically clumsy now as she was back then. The only reason she is where she is now is because of Bill not her political acumen. Dont give too much credit to the Clinton machine. If it failed her once why should it miraculously save her in the future?
