Hillary using Sanders for political cover
It may not seem like it, based on what the media and political pundits are saying about Hillary’s campaign losing ground fast to Bernie Sanders, but everything is going exactly as planned by the Clinton campaign strategist.
The Clinton team knew from the beginning that Hillary was an unappealing presidential candidate for anyone except the hardcore Democrat base. They also knew she carried the negative political baggage of lingering problems with her emails, Benghazi, and the Clinton Foundation.
Knowing all this, the Clinton team knew that Hillary would never make it for all those months as a front-running candidate with a big target on her back. So the strategy has always been to keep Hillary under the media radar – at least long enough for her to get the Democrat presidential nomination. It took a while for Bernie to gain some traction, but once he did, the spotlight dimmed on Hillary and began to light him up. Didn’t anyone find it odd that questions about Hillary’s emails and her other simmering scandals dried up all of a sudden? Could it be just a coincidence? Not with the Clintons.
Every bit of news coming from the media about the Democrat primary these days is highlighted by Bernie’s surprisingly successful campaign. The media spouts that Bernie’s growing popularity could spell big trouble for Hillary. But no one is happier about this seemingly bad news than Hillary’s campaign, because this is exactly the kind of “trouble” they prefer Hillary to have – all the way to the Democrat convention.
Bernie Sanders is the perfect shill in the Democrat presidential primaries. And so far, he is working exceptionally well for Hillary’s “low profile” campaign strategy. The higher Bernie climbs in the polls, the better his chances are of staying longer in a primary battle with Hillary. And the longer he stays in the primary, the longer Hillary’s shady political past stays under the media radar – and out of sight of the American electorate.
But there’s not a political pundit on the planet who believes that Bernie Sanders has a snowball’s chance of winning the Democrat presidential nomination. If you care to check out the delegate count as of today, Hillary is well on the way to being nominated. And getting to the nomination unscathed by any of her “real” political (and legal) troubles is the key to Hillary’s success.
When Hillary accepts the Democrat nomination for president, Bernie Sanders’s valiant effort will become a big political feather in her hat. The media will say: Wow – that Hillary sure is a fighter! (You do know her slogan is “Fighting for Us,” right?)
And when the Republicans, and their beleaguered and battle-worn presidential nominee, finally get around to campaigning against only Hillary, all those questions and allegations they’ll be making about her emails, Benghazi, and the Clinton Foundation will be noted and branded by the leftist media as old news, anti-woman, and you guessed it – another right-wing conspiracy.
Good luck with that, Mr. Trump.
