Hillary Clinton Won’t Go Away, and Democrats Don’t Know How to Make Her

Two years after her stunning loss to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton appears to be just as engaged as ever in domestic politics. It’s true she’s not barnstorming battleground states with big, presidential-style rallies, like she was in 2016. She’s vocally backing candidates, though, sitting for TV interviews and activating her fundraising network on behalf of candidates this cycle.

And many Democrats are less than enthused about it.

While some Democrats are happy to take the money that comes from a Clinton fundraiser, many have no interest in appearing publicly alongside the twice-failed presidential candidate.

But despite being the first woman to clinch her party’s presidential nomination, Clinton is seen as a discordant fit to publicly stump for many young, progressive female candidates.

One Democrat tweeted, “Even Hillary voters don’t want to see or hear from her again.”

But that isn’t stopping Clinton from getting out there. And it’s not stopping her from trying to make some money in the process, too. Earlier this month, Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, announced a 13-city speaking tour. The Live Nation-sponsored event will take the former first couple everywhere from Las Vegas to Detroit, but mostly to cities along the coasts. Tickets range from $75 to $370.

Most problematic for 2018 Democrats (and soon 2020 Democrats) are Clinton’s continued missteps in interviews. Earlier this week, Clinton argued that she had “no role” in denigrating the woman who accused her husband of sexual misconduct. She added that the power dynamic between the president and a White House intern was of no consequence because Monica Lewinsky was “an adult” at the time.

Because Clinton is who she is, and because her answers to these questions are so “discordant,” as Politico’s Annie Karni put it, in today’s Democratic Party, her presence on the national stage will always be controversial for Democrats. And as of today, there are no signs indicating Democrats have figured out how to “solve a problem like Hillary.”
