Today is Hillary Clinton’s election campaign started, but even though she is a big favorite for the Democrats, the popular candidate has nevertheless a number of anguish that can pursue her.
When Hillary Clinton is now talking to the people from his first election rally, it looks impressive and dynamically. The Clinton machine is well-oiled, well padded and huge.
But Clinton has three anguish, she must overcome:
1. The surname.
That should be a boon to be named Clinton as a surname when you have presidential ambitions. And it should also be an advantage to have a man named Bill Clinton at her side. But both are also a drag on Hillary Clinton.
Bill and Hillary Clinton have both worked in their charitable organization, The Clinton Foundation, since they left the White House in 2001. The organization organizes debates and make poverty reduction and the like. But in recent times has the US media dug in the donor lists.
It proves to be a number of countries, the United States usually consider as enemies, has donated money to the Clinton family organization. A number of large companies have also given money, and the mere suspicion that one can buy influence at The Clinton administration has made a number of bad stories in the press.
In addition, Bill Clinton’s large fees for lectures, which also rubs off on his wife.
The fact that Hillary Clinton has not had an official role in the organization of the time she was Minister of Foreign Affairs, helps her.
2. The Mail-ghost.
The story of Hillary Clinton’s private mail server has lived for some months now. It was disclosed in March that Clinton in her time as foreign minister used the couple’s private server in their home north of New York City when she sent mails – and not the Ministry mail address.
This means that her post is not filed correctly, and Clinton has delivered up to 60,000 e-mails to the State Department.
Since there has been much mystery about Clinton’s e-mail: Why did she not have the right email address, and what did she try to hide.
The public has not yet seen many of her e-mails, but nothing suggests that she had anything to hide. But again: Just the suspicion is enough, and it reinforces the perception of Clinton as corrupt and powerful.
Hillary Clinton even excused herself by saying that it was “easier” just to have one smartphone to avoid two different devices for work and personal e-mails.
3. The heavy short-worthiness.
Clinton’s last problem may sound like a luxury problem. And that’s it. But because Hillary is the undisputed favorite for the Democratic primaries, she is also the most interesting to dig in for the American press. There are currently only three candidates and none of them seems to threaten Clinton’s favorite dignity.
Bill Clinton makes no life easier. The former president is known for his enormous political instinct and his great charisma. But Bill Clinton is difficult to rein in. He asks periodically interviews, he keeps rarely the subjects that Hillary’s campaign equips him.
Right now Hillary Clinton is without someone to share the spotlight with, and only her surname makes her the largest exchange in the political jungle.
