Rebecca Traister, the New York Times: “The fantasy that we would’ve been happier right now with Hillary as president is a fantasy. And I don’t think it does us a lot good. Especially at this moment when there’s so much to talk about and so much to worry about with our current president.
Joe Scarborough: “Why do you think it’s a fantasy?”
Traister: “Cast your mind back to 2008. The very things we’re yearning for now..the ferocity with which she would have taken on the Tea Party, for instance. The fact that she knew the system. Think about how those things were talked about back in 2008. It was that she was a company man; she had dynastic privilege; she was going to tear her party apart with her craven ambition. Those are the very qualities we’re yearning for now.”
