Via Daily Caller:
“Ready for Hillary” has launched an online store, prompting mockery, comparisons to Madonna, and an overall feeling many describe as “creepy.”
(I don’t see a lot of dudes deciding to wear this gear, but who knows?)
It’s important to note that this isn’t an official “Hillary!” project, but instead, the work of a PAC. And it would be silly to make too much out of this.
Still, I think this illustrates some problems Hillary will have.
It is assumed, of course, that she will be the Democratic nominee — if she wants to be. What is more, early polling shows her topping the field of likely Republican general election opponents.
Clearly, this is an attempt to replicate Obama’s success design, but I think this illustrates the difficulty her team will have in channeling the youthful Obama zeitgeist – when instead handed an aging female candidate who has been in the public eye for more than two decades and has lots of baggage.
I disagree with the author’s statement that it might appeal to “women of a certain age”. ”Women of a certain age” usually have sense and wouldn’t be caught dead in something like this. Creepsville…shudder…
