5 challenges ahead for Hillary

http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/276537-5-challenges-ahead-for-hillary

4.) The Trump factor The general election hasn’t started, yet the mudslinging from both sides has begun. Clinton and Bill Clinton can both get flustered when attacks get personal, and that’s a worry to some of their supporters.  Democratic consultant Tracy Sefl, who served as a senior adviser to Ready for Hillary, said Trump’s “shamelessness” is a concern. “He’s someone who has shown a willingness and a gleefulness for saying crazy things,” Sefl said. “I worry about what’s going to come out of his mouth.” “He’s the wild card. He has been this whole time and will continue to be.” Manley agreed, saying, “the depths of the charges are going to be off the charts.”

2. On Trump, sounds like they are...

...mainly worried about being able to effectively handle whatever outrageous crap Trump choses to throw. "“She’s gonna get defensive, her husband is going to get defensive and that’s how you make mistakes,” Manley said. “She needs to be disciplined and not take the bait.”

That would be good advice to any candidate dealing with Trump idiocy. But "not taking the bait" can't mean "ignoring" or being "above it" either. Tricky.

The other five points have some validity too. I can see her campaign SERIOUSLY under-rating Trump or Cruz, expecting them to "implode" on their own. That wouldn't be a concern with Sanders. He is a relentless campaigner, and I don't think we would see him slow down one bit in the General.

4. Trump would call Bernie a communist, and it would get old after a while..

not a whole else more he could say, other than creating more jobs than Bernie, etc.

Bernie could attack Trump's statements on Latinos, etc. with more authority.

3. Hillary's biggest challenge is to get Bernie supporters over to her side after they have constantly

insulted us, even calling us liars.

They seem to forget that many of Bernie supporters are independents. They are only voting for the Dem candidate because that candidate is Bernie. Yet they have NO plan to woo those voters.
