Response to murielm99 (Reply #3)

5. There absolutely is something dynastic these days about Hillary Clinton.

 

It first emerged in 2007, when she was the inevitable candidate. Unfortunately, she ran a terrible campaign and lost.

If she wins the nomination this time fair and square, then fine. But right now there is a dynasty meme happening in her camp. You can see it in the swooning over the possibility that Chelsea will run for office in the future. With all due respect, running for office isn't something one inherits.

Think about the recent debacle over Caroline Kennedy's swiftly aborted Senatorial campaign. She was only being considered because of her Kennedy connection. Pure dynasty association. Ms Schlossberg would not be on anyone's radar if it were not for her birth name.
