It goes without saying that conservatives aren’t buying Hillary Clinton’s “I didn’t want to use two phones” explanation when she, in fact, admitted she had been using multiple phones.
The question here is how will Democrats and the liberal media, MSNBC in particular, react.
Remember it was just a couple of days ago that Dianne Feinstein said that Hillary needed to speak up.
I doubt that Feinstein would have the felt the need to do so if MSNBC hadn’t been focusing so much of its energy on it as the exchange between Andrea Mitchell and James Carville demonstrates.
So will Democrats and MSNBC close ranks around Hillary?
I doubt it. These things tend to come in threes. First, the foreign donor scandal. Now the e-mail scandal. There’s a good chance a third shoe could drop and Democrats might be hesitant to come to Hillary’s defense.
I also think MSNBC has another agenda: Elizabeth Warren. She resonates with the MSNBC audience in a way that Hillary doesn’t. Now if there was no Liz Warren in the picture then I think MSNBC might hold their nose and say, “Nothing to see.”
But let’s face it. Hillary has enough baggage to fill an entire terminal at O’Hare. Warren is no paragon of virtue, but next to Hillary she is a candidate for progressive sainthood.
If this story still has legs it will be because MSNBC will be running with it while Democrats run away from Hillary.
