Democrats trying to move on from Hillary Clinton, who can’t ‘ride off into the sunset soon enough’

In the fall Democrats were public about “dreading” Hillary Clinton’s book tour and now some just want the former First Lady, New York Senator, Secretary of State and 2016 Presidential candidate to just “ride off into the sunset.”

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) told a North Dakota radio show on Tuesday that Clinton needs to move on from politics, and fast.

Heitkamp’s brother, Joel Heitkamp, was the host of the show on the KFGO, asked “When does Hillary Clinton ride off into the sunset?”

“I don’t know, not soon enough, I guess,” Heitkamp replied. “Not soon enough.”

“She’s bashing the middle of this country and my state again,” Joel said. “I don’t need her to do that.”

Clinton is just becoming a big distraction, trapped by the blame game and excuses of the past.

“…we’re trying to bring the party together so we can all move the party forward — stronger, stronger together,” said Rep. Jared Huffman, a Democrat who represents a Northern California district, back in September as Clinton headed out on the book tour.

“She’s got every right to tell her story. Who am I to say she shouldn’t, or how she should tell it? But it is difficult for some of us, even like myself who’ve supported her, to play out all these media cycles about the blame game, and the excuses.”

Clinton headed overseas with Huma Abedin and other friends on a “girls trip,” but couldn’t stop talking about the 2016 election, blaming racist America: people who “didn’t like black people getting rights.”

While discussing where she did well, Clinton stated that “…I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward. And his whole campaign – ‘Make America Great Again’ was looking backwards,” Clinton said, characterizing Trump’s message: “‘You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights. You don’t like women getting jobs, you don’t want to see that Indian American succeeding more than you are ­– whatever your problem is, I’m gonna solve it.'”

In response Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown told Huffington Post: “I don’t really care what she said. I just think that that’s not helpful.”

Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri told reporters on Capitol Hill “Oh, come on. You’re killing me here,” when she was asked to speak on the Clinton remarks.

Patty Solis Doyle, Clinton’s 2008 campaign manager, told CNN: “Look, this was bad. I can’t sugarcoat it. She was wrong and clearly it’s not helpful to Democrats going into the midterms and certainly not going into 2020.”

The Global Dispatch’s Editor-in-Chief Brandon Jones can’t believe she is this naive or delusional.

“It’s all a bit hard to watch and believe. I’m certain Hillary and her team thought she would win, nearly everyone did, but she can’t be this naive or delusional, re-writing the response to Trump. Those sour apples can hurt Democrats in the midterm and playing the race card is just plain tired.

“I can’t quite gauge if Clinton still believes she has a future in politics or not. Americans have moved on. The consensus I hear is that she got her shot and lost. Her time has ended.”

When I asked Brandon about the midterms, he talked mostly about the Senate, saying the House seats can be a “coin toss” with the “ever growing purple nature of the country.”

“The Democrats are still at risk in the Senate, running 25 campaigns to the GOP’s 8. So, while the anti-Trump movement may have the tide right now, that’s a lot of work and an uphill battle, These Democatic Senators don’t want anything to with Clinton’s failures and just want to treat her with dignity and move on.”
