Axios: Team Hillary blames Obama more than Putin.

Democrats do eat their own. Face it, Clinton lost in '08 to a freshman senator with a good teleprompter shpiel. It strongly indicated how well she'd do in later contests, and I pointed this out early and often. The observations above are nice and all for an overall post-mortem, but as a sole basis for 'why we lost' is pretty pitiful.

Oh, and 'most qualified candidate'? No. Martin Van Buren. If you want to quibble over time as First Lady, keep in mind 'most qualified' seems to historically point to not-so-great Presidents. I think I'd shelve that item. For all time. In the future, perhaps: "Best qualified for the challenges of today and tomorrow."
