Hillary Clinton was written off as a failed presidential candidate who would never have another run at the White House. Not any more, writes Toby Harnden in Washington.
Driving past the White House the other day, my eye was caught by the bumper sticker on the shiny black Toyota Prius in front of me. It read: “We love you Hillary – Clinton for President, 2016”.
A year ago, I’d have snorted at the slogan and kept my distance from the vehicle – judging the driver to be a delusional Clintonite diehard still desperately fighting the reality that the former First Lady’s presidential aspirations were history.
Now, the person behind that wheel seems to be on the money. Having elected Barack Obama amid near national euphoria, America is experiencing something akin to buyer’s remorse.
