Hillary Clinton’s answer to the has-been charge
Politico ^ | 8 Jul 2013 | MAGGIE HABERMAN

Posted on 07/08/2013 9:28:45 AM PDT by mandaladon

Republicans in search of an attack line against Hillary Clinton have begun to cast her as a tired relic of the past — an implicit contrast to their own bench of up-and-comers like hip hop-listening Marco Rubio and libertarian-leaning Rand Paul. But Democrats are confident that giving voters the chance to make history by electing the first female president — by definition a forward-looking act — would trump any argument that Clinton is too 20th century and give her a “change” mantra of her own

“If Secretary Clinton runs, she’ll be the nominee — the first female nominee of either party,” said Stephanie Cutter, a former top adviser to the Obama White House and campaign. “That breaks through the ‘old’ tagline that the Republican geniuses are cooking up because, if handled correctly, women of all ages will absolutely be inspired by that. I don’t recommend that be the totality of her message or platform, but there’s no way to hide that fact and it certainly shouldn’t be discounted. “

It’s the type of “first” campaign that was a hallmark of the Barack Obama 2008 effort, even if he didn’t overtly run that way. Clinton ran a campaign that was focused primarily on experience and strength in 2008, after the pollster for her poll-driven campaign found that her gender could hurt more than help.

I can hear it now ...

Debate Monitor (Baba Walters):Mrs Rodham Clinton, some people feel that your age is a negative factor. What do you have to say to them?

Hillary: So what difference does it make?.. Ronald Reagan was 69 when he was elected President.

Governor Palin (Republican nominee) (winking, giving that little smile of hers): Ms. Clinton, I knew Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was a friend of mine. Ms. Clinton, you're no Ronald Reagan.

“Has been”?

She’s a never was who got ahead in life by sleeping with a governor and then president.

Board of director for Walmart?
Un-elected co-president?
Carpetbagging Senator who’s husband has a “Harlem headquarters”?

Hopefully it would discourage the trolls for several months.
