Is it ironic that long-time Clinton cheerleader Andrea Mitchell is asking Bill Clinton how Hillary’s run for president has changed between 2008 and 2016? Perhaps Mitchell thinks there’s more she could do to help this time around.

Bill Clinton stressed that 2016 won’t be a repeat of 2008, unless of course Bernie Sanders manages to come out of nowhere and defeat Hillary. That won’t happen again, though, because Hillary and Barack Obama had “enormous overlap” in their issues, with Hillary carrying the extra burden of Bill and their shared scandals.

Aside from the flipping of quarters in Iowa, technology has almost completely transformed the campaigning process, and Hillary Clinton is getting pretty handy with technologies like the fax machine, the iPhone, and the shredder. What else has changed?

And point. It’s 2016, and the video clip shows that Bill Clinton still points at people who ask him uncomfortable questions.

    Wow! How’re you guys gonna cheat this time?! Seriously, two terms of you has been enough. Off to prison with both of you.

    • Chris Carter

      Two sided coin for the coin flip. Her representative called heads every time and won six times. Hmmm.

      • tops116 ✓Quipper

        “Excuse me, I didn’t see the coin result!”

      • vetgal1970

        Nothing says democracy like choosing your representative by a coin flip. I have a feeling that’s going to come back to haunt them once the season gets in full swing and the ballot shenanigans kick into high gear

    • Acuda4me ✓Please!

      If it’s close, the RNC MIGHT just fall for the “Coin Toss” trick.

      • Chris Carter

        I say we make them fight in the Octagon for GOP supremacy. But Trump might win that one since he’s bigger than Cruz and Rubio.

        • Acuda4me ✓Please!

          Hillary would hide a metal plate in her boot.

      • Deplorable Jesse-Messy Hammer

        …What’s the RNC gotta do with Hillary-vs.-Bernie? In case that’s an “awkwardly worked swipe” at how the GOP “will lose this time”, #SelfAwarenessFail: The tweets above make it very plain that it ain’t the GOP but rather conservative voters who keep finding ways to throw elections to the Dems (such as the millions who stayed home or voted 3rd-party in 2012 without whom O couldn’t have won).
        …A “case in point” is Suzanne’s tweet above: “Ugh…make these people go away! Have we not had enough of the Clintons?”
        …Friends, if anything about this election cycle has made me sicker than has Trumpmania, it’s this absurdly tone-deaf “Clinton/Bush fatigue” (the conflation of which alone infuriates me since Jeb hasn’t had a remote shot at the nom). Why do I say Suzanne’s tone-deaf? “Because it’s the primaries, stupid (Sue)…and THAT might the sickest thing about this election season: conservs’ woeful underestimation of Bernie Sanders. WHAT, these people want Hillary to bow out and hand Bern the nomination, as if he’s a losing candidate? That’s sheer conserv-stupidity, the kind of conserv-stupidity that also helped get Obama elected twice: remember how Rush & talk-radio blithely bashed McCain ’08 & Mitt ’12 as they arrogantly kept saying “Obama will never be elected anyway.” WELL, “O” WAS ELECTED, and he got elected by a landslide of young people (YOUNG people as in Twitchy’s early headline about how 90% of yesterday’s Bernie-voters were under age 30–We ALL know how THAT ended (twice).) And so, my fellow conservs, save all this “wishing-away-of-Hillary (along with lame GOP-jokes)” until AFTER Hillary gets nominated, since y’all still don’t get why the DemBase is way more excited about Bern than about Hillary.

      This old skeezer?

  • Chris Carter

    They didn’t have much of an overlap in 2008. She ran as a moderate candidate like O’Malley attempted this race and she lost big time. Dems don’t want moderates anymore. Ask Jim Webb. So now she’s trying to be as close to Bernie as she can. I saw 1 Democrat debate and saw little difference between the two, but she did have differences with Obama.

    But congrats on the coin flip victory, Bill.

  • vetgal1970

    Poor Bernie. The only thing that kept Hillary from going all out 100% scumbag in ’08 was Obama’s race. Bernie’s just an old white guy.

    • ricoliv

      Still, Slick Willy got his licks in afterward, when he so graciously opined that, a few years previously (possibly referring to the Clinton administration?) Obama would have been relegated to serving the coffee at White House functions. When it comes to a show of class, you just can’t beat those Clintons.

  • TooFarGone1 ✓NeverTrump

    In 2008, most Americans didn’t have first-hand experience with how destructive unchecked leftism was. Let’s hope a majority is wiser after the last 8 miserable years.

    • Aparition42

      I optimistically believe that this election’s youngest voters think of the Obamas as the reason school lunch tasted bad, the reason chips and soda machines were removed from their school, and the reason they have to spend a massive chunk of their paychecks on health insurance they don’t need.

      • markh58

        I am not so optimistic about young voters. They can easily be led to believe that all of the problems in their lives are the fault of Republicans. The RNC ( “Establishment”) will do nothing but apologize.

        • Aparition42

          The RNC consistently snatches defeat from the jaws of victory, but eighteen to twenty-one year olds barely remember Bush’s presidency. All the damaging policies they’ve experienced since becoming old enough to pay attention can be directly linked to the current administration. I do believe there’s an expiration date on “Blame Bush”™.
          Public schools are clearly failing, but the school of life is still in session. The administration can lie about the economy all it wants, but young people who can’t afford college and are struggling to find a job know the truth.

        • Frustrated Teacher

          the younger ones are those all in for Bernie Sanders….they are ignorant of history and know nothing of how taxes, business, economies and such really work. It’s best if Hillary beats Bernie and his voters stay home on election day…

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    There’s a good chance that Hillary will end up facing a one-term minority Senator. How is that not like 2008 again?

    • Aparition42

      Last time she was up against a young, hip, charismatic, photogenic, historic candidate. This time she’s losing to an elderly, outdated, cantankerous, unkempt, old-white-man.
      But hey, she’s always got the “sexism” excuse to fall back on. Anything that keeps her from admitting to herself that the people just don’t want her to be president.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    “Hillary is a natural cheater and liar and a traitor! What more could you ask for in a POTUS”

    So, a Hillary presidency will be a lot like Bill’s then?

  • Jerry Shelton

    Bill’s right on this one….that cant say it was because she is not black

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    “This is brutal to watch, cant even form a cohesive sentence.”

    Well, he and Trump are good friends.

    • JosephBloughs ✓Viagrafied

      Not to mention that infamous phone call that happened between them months before the campaign started. I’m sure THAT was a coherent joy to listen to.

  • Donald-Irredeemable deplorable

    Let’s see,
    1) She didn’t have the blood of an American Ambassador and three others on her hands
    2) She didn’t put a large number of American covert operators lives in jeopardy through incompetence, reckless disregard for national security, and a deep seated need to hide her corruption, among other things.
    3) She wasn’t part of a huge money laundering, influence pedaling, graft seeking, illegal conglomerate.
    4) She wasn’t exhibiting as many signs of Alzheimer’s disease back then.
    5) She wasn’t quite as adept at dodging Bosnian sniper fire with Brian Williams back then.
    Lordy, lordy, I could go on and on for days, listing all the differences.

  • Petrucio14

    She could only manage to run neck and neck in Iowa against a curmudgeon socialist. Cruz is right, the Democrats only have an old proud socialist running against an old woman who pretends not to be. Not to mention that she has already conceded New Hampshire to the old socialist. What could go wrong?

  • mhojai

    Sanders wouldn’t have been getting Clinton coffee back then…

  • Suzyqpie

    The $29-donation-fairness-guy Bernie Sanders is who the Democrats want to be. The corrupt and venal Hillary Clinton is who they are.

  • Dan Abbett

    I find it curious that I haven’t seen any commentary on this extremely telling statistic. In the Iowa caucuses, Ted Cruz alone received nearly 52,000 votes Trump followed with almost 45,500 votes. On the Democrat side, Hillary is said to have won with a whopping 701 votes. Sanders trailed by four votes.

    That’s a total of 1400 votes for Dems as opposed to 97,000 for the top two Republicans alone. Maybe it’s just me but in the world of presidential elections, this disparity would seem to be, you know, a BFD!

    • Russ

      That’s because the Democrat caucus votes are delegate votes from the county level, run through a formula to translate them to statewide levels. The votes from the Republican caucus are actual popular votes. Both the voting process and the way they are tallied are different for the two parties.

      • Dan Abbett

        Thanks for the explanation. I wasn’t aware of the process so the disparity was a complete mystery in my mind.

        • Russ

          If Bernie wants a recount, he’s SOL, because the democrats have no paper trail or head count to go on. Seems weird to me, but I’ve never lived in a state that doesn’t have a normal primary.

          • nc ✓s & balances

            Even though it’s delegates and not votes, please explain to me how HRC and Bern can be only 4 (!) apart and this NOT generate some sort of recount or closer look.

            And I heard the 6 out of 6 odds of that coin toss are 1 in 64. Pretty lucky? Or Clinton luck?

          • Russ

            Can’t explain what I don’t know about the nuances of the rules laid out by the Iowa state Democrat Party. I do know that the voters in the Dem caucus do not fill out ballots. Head counts are taken, which are then used to assign delegates, and the delegate assignments are what get reported. My understanding is that there isn’t even a paper tally of the head counts, although that may be up to the individual volunteers in charge of each caucus location. I’m sure you can find further information online if you’re curious enough to look it up.

            ETA: this explains the process a bit more, including lack of ballots

          • nc ✓s & balances

            Seems ripe for corruption if you ask me.

            Edited for Update: Russ, I just read your link from the Des Moines Register and it’s way worse than I thought! What a freaking mess! How can this NOT be challenged?
