Former Democratic National Committee head Donna Brazile writes in a new book that she seriously contemplated setting in motion a process to replace Hillary Clinton as the party’s 2016 presidential nominee with then-Vice President Biden in the aftermath of Clinton’s fainting spell, in part because Clinton’s campaign was “anemic” and had taken on “the odor of failure.”
In an explosive new memoir, Brazile details widespread dysfunction and dissension throughout the Democratic Party, including secret deliberations over using her powers as interim DNC chair, to initiate the process of removing Clinton and running-mate Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.) from the ticket, after Clinton’s Sept. 11, 2016, physical collapse in New York City.
Brazile writes that she considered a dozen combinations to replace the nominees, and settled on Biden and Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.), the duo she felt most certain would win over enough working-class voters to defeat Republican Donald Trump.
Brazile paints a scathing portrait of Clinton as a well-intentioned, historic candidate whose campaign was badly mismanaged, took minority constituencies for granted, and made blunders with “stiff” and “stupid” messages.
The campaign staff was so lacking in passion for the candidate, she writes, that its New York headquarters felt like a sterile hospital ward where “someone had died.”

I wonder if she speaks of her collusion with the media on behalf of Hilary.
And no. Bidden would not have stood a chance. No one they would have ran would have stood a chance.

Top staffers from Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign on Saturday hit back at Donna Brazile's description of the contest in her new book and her reported consideration of dumping Clinton from the party's ticket.
Senior campaign officials signed the open letter, including John Podesta, the campaign's chairman; Huma Abedin, the campaign's vice chair and longtime Clinton confidante; and Robby Mook, the campaign's manager.
"It is particularly troubling and puzzling that she would seemingly buy into false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent, about our candidate’s health," the staffers wrote.
Brazile wrote that Clinton's campaign took advantage of a joint-fundraising agreement to hold influence over the national party during the primary season — reigniting an internal feud over whether the nomination fight was rigged by the party establishment against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
Finally, we are pretty tired of people who were not part of our campaign telling the world what it was like to be on the inside of our campaign and how we felt about it. We loved our candidate and each other and it remains our honor to have been part of the effort to make Hillary Clinton the 45th President of the United States.

OMG.. I hadn't see THAT photo! Joe would have to defend some kinky actions if he ran again.
But the way American society seems to be headed, yesterday's "kink" might be tomorrow's "normal".

So instead we have a president who brags about grabbing women's... kitty cats.
Hey, if they let him do it, that's between two consenting adults. None of my business.
Kissing little boys on the mouth falls in a whole other category of wtf?
