It's just fine if this post/thread catches flak for
a story that is nearly one month old.
I was simply surprised that there was no thread relevant to the story
when it happened in January.

The interview that is the source of the
'this is abnormal' quote
was done in support of the Hulu network documentary,
to reiterate, in January 2020.
I did not watch the television series.
For those of you who watched the multi-episode documentary,
nothing in this interview will be new.
The interview had value to me because it saved me watching the television show.

The gloves-off remarks about Bernie Sanders gave me reason to stop and think -- hard.
Here's a link to the interview.

interview with Hillary Clinton, January 21, 2020

Poor losers all around. Trump can't get over that Hillary won the popular vote. The GOP Senate -1 may be afraid of Trump, but voters aren't.

Burstein has made peace with the inevitable flak it will catch from Clinton detractors who'll take issue with the doc's lack of conservative voices (save former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist). It's not, she and her producers insist, for lack of trying. Instead, they got one no after the next. "We were shocked," says Owens, who blames a toxic, polarized political culture for the near shutout. At one point, Burstein says, she managed to track down Newt Gingrich by cellphone, and was told he'd "rather stick needles in [his] eyes than do the interview."

While prominently featured, neither Lewinsky (who was contributing to an A&E docuseries on the subject at the time), Bernie Sanders nor Donald Trump was asked to participate. "I didn't want to re-litigate 2016," the director explains, "as much as just be able to show Hillary in this unobtrusive way." Forty-five others do, however, including her husband (who holds back tears as he, too, walks through the Lewinsky chapter) and daughter, childhood friends, aides and advisers, a litany of journalists and her onetime opponent turned boss, Barack Obama. "This is not an agenda piece," says Hulu's head of docs, Belisa Balaban. "It's an authored piece of work that looks at a very long slice of personal and political history."


Keberoxu, everyone is tired of this topic except those who want to keep fighting about anything.

Surely the poor losers are Democrats. Trump won the election lawfully in the US. Playing games with numbers( as many try to in the UK) cannot alter that fact. The Democrats threatened impeachment before Trump even took office and have been after him ever since. You and Pelosi are making yourselves a laughng stock around the world. Trump will win with even larger numbers come November and that will make your arguments even more ridiculous. You are attempting a coup and the deplorables will not permit it.

I used to think that most everybody was pretty good, but Donald Trump and his "deplorable" supporters have shaken that belief. I'm hoping that the reality is that Trump's support is ten percent, and the Vast Middle will go back to a more reasonable candidate.

But I've always thought that Hillary Clinton was quite good, very rational and balanced, and far more moral that her rather sleazy husband.

as I was saying:

The Bernie Sanders assessment was what made me stop and think,
as this is relevant to 2020 -- very relevant.

It is especially relevant to Massachusetts, of which I am amongst the voters.
I have been sitting back and listening/reading as the Massachusetts radio stations, newspapers, and weblogs pay attention to Bernie Sanders. I had a sense that a score was being kept.

Remember, only four years ago -- there are old Mudcat threads to prove it -- people were saying that there ought to be a Hillary/Bernie ticket?
So, now we know what Hillary REALLY thinks of Bernie Sanders.
And this made me consider how seriously Massachusetts, not to speak of other states hereabouts, takes its senators.

Elizabeth Warren, don't forget, is one of the MA senators.
The other one is Ed Markey. Ed Markey is not running for President.
Markey has been a US Senator for a short time, but then
he was a US Representative for multiple terms before being elected US Senator.
Markey, love him or hate him, is the real deal, Senator-wise.
He knows how to write laws -- some of his have become law.
He knows about his constituents and he knows about his peers,
and how to interact with each.

No, I'm not saying I want Ed Markey to be anything other than
US Senator for Massachusetts.

What I'm saying is, what if Hillary is right when she says of Sanders,
"Nobody likes him," meaning Sanders's peers in Congress.

Now, if Elizabeth Warren doesn't like Sanders, it's one thing.
One, she's a rival in the running for US President.
Two, she's a woman, and it seems to be one those nasty commonplaces
that Sanders can disrespect women and get away with it.

However:
if Ed Markey dislikes Bernie Sanders?
If Ed Markey's colleagues dislike Bernie Sanders that much?

It makes me feel sorry for Mr. Sanders, if that's the case,
and this is no time to be feeling sorry for him.

I was listening to the wrap-up of the impeachment hearings on Wednesday and one of the commentators remarked that until Trump arrived the racist xenophobic population that supports him didn't have a voice. Now they're all over the place and energized. With any of the other candidates, or going back to previous GOP candidates Romney or McCain, they would have remained voiceless. McCain corrected followers who had racist things to say about Obama during his campaign.

A long time ago there were people who knew how smart Hillary is and who worried about a political career - and worked to slam her in the "vast right wing conspiracy" that she referred to. It was real. Richard Scaife and his horrible sister Cordeila were behind it. Those negative remarks will have been what MG heard and responded to - if you don't look beyond the propaganda you end up with the wrong information.

Pretty much.

The candidates this time around know that anything they sling at each other could be ammunition for Trump, he will use it (and make up shit also). I didn't hear tonight's debate but understand that Klobuchar and Warren did very well for their respective positions. Whoever wins the nomination needs to know how to verbally take Trump off at the knees, to ignore some of his shit and denounce other parts of it. And if he lurks too close behind during the debates like he did to Hillary, turn around and tell him to back off. (I'd love to see him get a knee to the groin, but that won't happen on a debate stage.)

I don't have Hulu, but have heard reviews of that documentary, where the history of the remark was featured. Bernie did have some trouble last year with complaints about how he ran previous campaigns in relation to how the women were treated.

Frankly, I think Biden and Sanders are too old to run and have reasonable expectations of full healthy terms. Warren is a few years younger than the other two, I think similar in age to Hillary (who would now be anticipating running for a second term if she had been inaugurated.)

I thought it would be worthwhile to post an excerpt from the Hillary Clinton interview that keberoxu referred to in the first post:
    When I lost, I was obviously stunned, disappointed, terribly upset. If I had lost to what I would call a "normal" Republican with whom I disagreed on many things, but who I thought cared about the country and put service over self, I would probably still speak out and say, "We don't agree about that." But this is abnormal, what we currently have. We should never allow it to be normalized. I thought for a brief moment between the election and the inauguration that he might be awed by the responsibility of the job, and really try to grow into it. As he had admitted, there were a lot of things he didn't know about the job. But then when he gave his inauguration [speech] and insisted on lying about the crowd size? I've been to every inauguration for 25 or so years; he did not have a very big crowd. And I said, "What's wrong with him? What's wrong with the people that he has around him who he's making go out on TV and say it was the biggest crowd?" It really bothered me because I thought, "That's delusional." It's one thing to have a set of policies that you disagree with, but to have someone following the kind of authoritarian playbook to disrupt reality, to try to force you to believe what he wants you to believe by distracting, diverting and continually lying? That's different. We haven't ever had to deal with that.
It's a new game under Trump, and it has completely befuddled the American political system. Before Trump, there was an element of truth and trust in American politics, even among opponents. Now it's all out the window, and we need to learn how to bring back the Old Rules. We certainly can't survive long under the New Rules Trump has set.

"It's a new game under Trump, and it has completely befuddled the American political system."
I agree with that statement, Joe. Then I believe the opposite of everything that followed.
I voted Trump in 2016. I proudly will do the same in 2000.
Yes, he is abnormal if you consider the insanity of the "Old Rules" normal.
The old rules have been counter productive for decades. A continuation of them will eventually strip or, at the least, severely limited every right the founding fathers spelled out in our constitution. The things written there are the real "Old Rules" that we should bring back.
It Trump the answer? I doubt it. But he has, at least temporarily, derailed the idiot train we've been riding too long.

If people don't know how agencies work, how to write a bill, how to work the room and foster compromise, then government is not working.

It seems to me that the real power in the Republican Party is on the right, and the real power in the Democrats on the left. Both parties seem to be demanding strict adherence to their party line. But I think a lot of us are in the middle and don't find satisfying or realistic answers on either extreme. I like Sanders and Warren a lot, but I don't think their proposals are realistic. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are much closer to my ideal for a President, but Barack has done his time and Hillary is out of favor.
Is there a need for a Moderate Party in the United States? Is there such a thing in the multi-party atmosphere of the UK and other parliamentary national governments?

Gee, some people sure are putting words in my mouth, and it tastes like bullshit. It certainly isn't fair play. Please respond to what I say, not to what your prejudices make you imagine I might say. I do think that if the Democrats go too far to the left and exclude the moderates, we're in for another four years of Trump. I'm scared of the damage than could be done in four more years of Trump. Obama didn't accomplish all we hoped he would do, but everything he did was good. Better that, than four years of Trump.

I said above that I like the vast majority of ideas that Sanders and Warren have proposed. I just don't think they can get them enacted, and then we're stuck with all the damage Trump has done to systems that have taken decades to build. The first matter of business, if Trump is defeated, is to undo the damage he did, especially to the environment and to immigrants.

P.S. Donuel, I think Lindbergh was a pretty good pilot, but not a political genius.

The Republicans have Trump, The Democrats infighting.
Hardly a recipe for success.

Well yes, some rose-tinted specs coming out re Obama. I'd also add that the one Big Thing he should have done, and he did have eight years, was to put right the injustices meted out over many decades to the Palestinians, and he didn't. The running sore that is at the root of so much that's wrong with the world. Like all your presidents, he was manacled to multinationals, the oil industry and the pro-Israel and gun lobbies. The best that can be said is that we over here felt just that bit safer under him and Bill Clinton than we did under Reagan, Bush Jr and the current clown. And I know that feelings aren't everything.
