There were quite a few reasons Democrats relied on for losing their election. Every single one of them distancing themselves far away from the blame. Here comes a new one, right from their ranks, quite different and objective from all other, and the Dems are surely not going to like it. Vice President Joe Biden releases his view on the matter.
During an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Biden states that the fault for losing the elections rests with Clinton and says she never knew why she was running for presidency in the first place.
“I don’t think she ever really figured it out,” Biden said. “And by the way, I think it was really hard for her to decide to run.
“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,”
It could also be noticed that the people weren’t that hyped during the campaign rallies.
“You didn’t see any Hillary signs,” Biden said. “Every time I talked about Hillary they listened. But …”
According to Biden, another mistake that contributed to losing the election was Clinton’s problems with middle class voters. He said about the campaign :
“you didn’t hear a word about that husband and wife working, making 100,000 bucks a year, two kids, struggling and scared to death. They used to be our constituency.”
The reason Clinton wanted to run for presidency was the lust for power, to be in the office and a place in the history books. The people’s problems didn’t get to her. She cared about the problems of the people, being every politician’s responsibility, not because they bothered her, and actually wanted to help the citizens.
