Throughout the 2020 election, Sen. Amy Klobuchar has branded herself via her candidacy as a quasi-moderate. Klobuchar frequently claims that she has what it takes to “win in red states” and appeal to voters who may not be Democrats or left-leaning.
In recent weeks and during recent debates, the 2020 Democrat has alleged that sexism is what’s ultimately holding her back politically. The polls, numbers, and data each show that Klobuchar is a low-polling candidate; she doesn’t particularly energize voters, nor is she good at standing out from the pack of running Democrats.
Still, the senator has cried sexism and misogyny on many occasions, even going after in-party rival Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
This week, Klobuchar sat down with MSNBC and discussed what she views as an appropriate strategy to lead her to victory; according to Townhall, Klobuchar furthermore claimed that Hillary Clinton would have been a “fantastic president.”
Klobuchar on the 2020 Election and Hillary Clinton
During Klobuchar’s time on MSNBC, she made the case that visiting all counties in Iowa is critical to doing well in the primaries. The presidential candidate declared that winning is all about the willingness to “go out there” and show that she’ll be “president for all of America.”
Shortly thereafter, Klobuchar proceeded to allege that Hillary Clinton would have been a “fantastic president” and only lost because of nonvoters and Trump voters in 30 Iowa counties. The senator continued by stating that she’s gone “not just where it’s comfortable” for her “whole political career.”
The 2020 Democrat’s remarks about Hillary Clinton come as she struggles to remain afloat. Throughout her time as a presidential candidate, Klobuchar has consistently trailed behind other running Democrats; at this time, she presently maintains a national poll average of only 3.5%.
Why Klobuchar Won’t Make It
Hillary Clinton and Amy Klobuchar both have two shared commonalities: they’re both liberal Democrats and they will both never be president of the United States.
The assertion that Clinton would’ve been a “fantastic president” is, quite frankly, laughable. Klobuchar’s terrible take on this matter simply shows how disconnected she is from what’s really going on. Clinton’s history, background, policies, and lack of trustworthiness would have amounted to her being a horrific president, not a great one.
At this point, it’s very clear to all that Klobuchar won’t make it as a presidential candidate. Her policies are not good for America and she herself is not someone who has what it takes to successfully lead a nation. The sooner Klobuchar ends her campaign and stops making a fool of herself, the better off she will be.
