A prominent left-leaning magazine is imploring Hillary Clinton to “quit pointing fingers” and go away ahead of the 2018 midterms; adding the failed candidate will likely cost the Democrats the House and Senate should she decide to remain in the public spotlight.
The Atlantic published a scathing rebuke of Clinton Tuesday, titled “Hillary Clinton’s High Profile is Hurting the Democrats.” The article begs the former Secretary of State to “stop litigating” her 2016 defeat to Donald Trump and allow a new crop of candidates to take center stage.
“Isn’t there someone who can convince this accomplished, inspiring, barrier-breaking superwoman to stop whining about 2016?” asked the author.
“She lost. And while her frustration, disappointment, and rage make perfect sense, Clinton needs to give the public kvetching and finger-pointing a rest—if not for the sake of her or her party, then for the nation as a whole,” adds the writer.
The twice-failed presidential candidate was back in the national spotlight last week, delivering a major speech where she slammed Trump as “a president who seems to reject the role of a free press in our democracy.”
