Mark Penn: It Was Obama’s Money, Not My Incompetence
Mark Penn, Hillary Clinton’s chief strategist, has been given space on the NYT editorial page to explain that the reason Hillary Clinton lost despite beginning with every conceivable advantage was not, as widely speculated, that she ran perhaps the most ill-conceived campaign imaginable but, rather, because Barack Obama had a big pile of money.
I’m glad we cleared that up.
Left unexplained is why the candidate with every conceivable fundraising advantage got outhustled in fundraising. Or why they spent their money so foolishly.
