Unless it came down to her vs. the current republican candidates (hey, maybe old McCain from like…5?? years ago, but I don’t like current McCain so much).
During the NH debated I listened to on Monday, Hillary & Richardson both kept bringing up their experience, to the point of it becoming a broken record. Richardson’s doing this was mildly annoying in the sense of “Look at the old man who wants to be president, he can’t get his mind around the fact that we ALREADY HEARD HIM ONCE!”, but Hillary’s doing this caused me to go “Is she batshit crazy?”
I’ve read a few interviews with Richardson, and I think he would make a nice, moderate President, but he’s out of the running anyway. And after hearing his debate performance (which wasn’t bad), I can’t help thinking of him as an old man, even if he isn’t. At one point he even sounded like he was whining when he said “Since when is experience a bad thing?”
Anyway, Hillary is full of crap, as this Slate article points out. Seriously, if she gets to count her jobs before actual politics as presidential prerequisite experience, then so can everyone else. She was claiming something like 25 or 35 years…Richardson, who KICKS HER ASS in the experience department, hands down, wasn’t even claiming that long.
So yeah. Shut up Hillary, next talking point please.
