Her campaign just sent along a release titled, “HILLARY CLINTON’S REMARKS TODAY ON HER EXPERIENCE AND VISION FOR A NEW AMERICA.”
In reality, much of the excepted remarks are comprised of attacks on Barack Obama. Only toward the end does she address her alleged “experience”:
“A President can’t dodge the big fights, can’t find political cover, or have words speak louder than actions. A lot of words we have these days aren’t matched by action. And much of the actions I see, I simply disagree with. I have a very clear record on all of these issues. A record of 35 years of fighting for children and families, fighting for working people, fighting for our future – and as President, I will keep on fighting. But I’m running on more than just my record and my experience. I am also running on my vision and agenda of a new beginning for America.”
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. This might work for her in the Democratic primaries, where she faces the even less-experienced Obama and John Edwards, but it will not fly in the general election. “Fighting” is not the same as winning. It is not the same as actually achieving something. Hillary Clinton has absolutely zero tangible accomplishments to point to, and I think her experience gap could prove fatal in a general election.
