Hillary Clinton: Obama’s record made it hard to run on ‘agenda of change’

Hillary Clinton said in a new interview that her inability to run on an “agenda of change,” coming off of President Barack Obama’s two terms, was a significant problem for her 2016 campaign.

“It is true that when you run to succeed a two-term president of your own party, you have a historical headwind blowing against you,” Clinton told radio host Hugh Hewitt. “It’s not just this campaign can be set apart from everything that’s ever happened in our politics. It is a challenge.”

“If you are both the candidate defending a lot of the areas of agreement, but also putting forth an agenda for change, which is what I tried to do, it is often difficult to get the second part of that message through,” she added. “So I do think it was a problem.”

“I was proud to serve in the Obama administration. I did not agree with everything that President Obama decided, but on balance, I really think he did what had to be done to rescue the economy, which as we all remember, was in desperate straits,” Clinton told the conservative radio host. “He did chart a course in the world that favored diplomacy and negotiation, something that I think is important.”

    As some wise soul stated, her book is the first to have both the question and the answer on the front of the book cover.

    She really is shameless. First she blamed the Republicans (guess that one is true). The she blamed the Democrats for not giving her enough support (come to find out she blackmailed them into giving her the keys to the kingdom). Next it was the Russians. Followed by Sanders being more praiseworthy in his support of her running (after SHE stole the nomination from him). She blamed her campaign for a weak ground game (in states she never bothered to visit). Then it was the voters not getting enough information (probably too much). Now she is blaming Obama. Will she next blame Bill for staying with her? She has blamed all except where the blame lies; with her and her alone.
