With Friends Like These............

The last thing the Democrats need is for their own members to turn on them.  I'm talking about Donna Brazile, in her new book that trashes Hillary Clinton, specifically, and Elizabeth Warren, who piled on by saying the DNC rigged the primaries in favor of Clinton.

 Ronald Reagan had a pretty good idea when he said that no Republican should say anything against a fellow Republican.  Their grievances have stayed in-house until the current batch of politicians, who seem intent on eating their young.

I'll admit I have only read excerpts of Brazile's book, but they are enough to convince me that she is pretty bitter these days about Hillary, who she wholeheartedly supported during the campaign.  Makes me wonder what has caused the about-face now.  Could it be because she is now out of a job and she had been counting on a place in the Clinton cabinet?  Or, maybe she's just trying to hit all of the talk shows, a feat which she has accomplished, handily. So, her fifteen minutes are up.

Then, there's Elizabeth Warren.  Warren supported Bernie Sanders, which is fine, even though he isn't a Democrat and has never lifted a finger to help in the Democrats' fund-raising efforts. But, after he lost, we could expect Warren to do exactly what she did, which is to switch her support to Clinton. Now that it's all over but the whining, you'd think she wouldn't sink to calling the primaries "rigged" in favor of Clinton. 

The Democrats are working to get their act together as much as is possible for Democrats. Now is not the time for their members to take their personal beefs out on their party.

They had big wins in recent elections, most notably in Virginia.  Let's see what happens in the 2018 election.

Stay tuned.

I wonder how long the dumping on HRC is going to continue! It's bad enough that Marmalade Mugabe continues to act as if the campaign is still happening, but Sweet Mary Sunshine Democrats get it together and move forward! xoxo
