Hillary’s going to need a stiff drink and a nap after she sees what Joe Biden just said…
Joe Biden, in an interview with the LA Times, said his gut was telling him something wasn’t right in Hillary’s camp.
“Son of a gun. We may lose this election,” Biden said, recalling his reaction during an interview in his West Wing office.
“They’re all the people I grew up with. They’re their kids. And they’re not racist. They’re not sexist. But we didn’t talk to them.”…
…“My dad used to have an expression. He said, ‘I don’t expect the government to solve my problems. But I expect them to understand it,” Biden said.
“I believe that we were not letting an awful lot of people — high school-educated, mostly Caucasian, but also people of color — know that we understood their problems.”
There’s “a bit of elitism that’s crept in” to party thinking, he worries, setting up what he sees as the false impression that progressive values are inconsistent with working-class values.
“What are the arguments we’re hearing? ‘Well, we’ve got to be more progressive.’ I’m not saying we should be less progressive,” he said, adding that he would “stack my progressive credentials against anyone” in the party.
“We should be proud of where the hell we are, and not yield an inch. But,” he added, “in the meantime, you can’t eat equality. You know?”…
…Biden pointed to questions that came even from members of Clinton’s inner circle, revealed in emails made public by WikiLeaks, about whether the Democratic front-runner had figured out why she was running.
“I don’t think she ever really figured it out,” Biden said. “And by the way, I think it was really hard for her to decide to run.”

Biden does go soft later and says that Hillary ‘felt compelled’ to run as she was a ‘viable’ female candidate. And that she certainly wasn’t in it for the money, status or power.
No, that couldn’t be it.
She’s not made a fortune on influence peddling or anything.
So there’s really no incentive there.
Here’s the CNN tweet to their story:

What just happened?
Did CNN just tell the truth?
Perhaps they’re afraid of being labeled ‘fake news’.
Joe said Hillary never figured out why she was running and CNN repeated it.
Hillary is having one helluva bad year.
All her besties are turning on her.
What do YOU think?
Did Hillary know why she was running?
