Rove on Hillary '16: 'First Woman President' Not Enough to Win
Monday, January 6, 2014 09:57 PM

By: Greg Richter

With news that Hillary Clinton is running a "shadow campaign" for president, Republican political operative Karl Rove warns that she'll have to do more than hope people will want the first female U.S. president.

Appearing on Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor" on Monday, Rove said that a Sunday story by Politico was "hyped a little bit" and that Clinton has basically been briefed on deadlines and legal requirements.

When host Bill O'Reilly said Clinton's message was simply "first woman president," Rove countered that that wouldn't be enough to raise the kind of money needed to win. Besides, he said, that plan didn't work so well for her in 2008.

"It didn't work so well because it was trumped by first black president," O'Reilly replied.

Being the first black president worked for Obama.
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

For once, I agree with Rove.  Hillary is not a telegenic or charismatic politician.  Today's voters are all in the visual and emotional aspects without any cognitive approach.  This will harm her prospects in my opinion.

So did massive voter fraud.  The Clinton's are not above chicanery criminality to get the Hildebeast elected.  God save what's left America if she runs and wins.
