Hillary Clinton

Personal observations #3: Hillary Clinton knows too much

Hillary Clinton might be tougher and better qualified than Donald Trump, and in possession of a formidable campaigning and fundraising machine, but she has the disadvantage of incumbency. This makes her look tired, and has her pulling around baggage that the American people have been peering into for too long, which must be humiliating. Her adult life has been one of extraordinary service to the United States while Trump has spent his best years making himself money and squeezing others out of the way. But Hillary’s experience means that she understands the Washington status quo, maybe too well. She’s a bit like Rey in Star Wars VII, who knows enough tricks to keep the Milennium Falcon flying, but only just. Like Rey, Hillary could make do and mend, but would she have the energy or the momentum to do more than tinker? America needs more than tinkering.
