Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Hillary Clinton

Hillary we hardly knew ye. While she was focusing on the old game, I think the game changed. She and Bill had an idea this campaign was going to be an extension of the previous ones. And events kept showing her that it was another animal, one she, nor we, had ever seen before and all pundits and insiders got consistently wrong. She was wrong on running an incumbent-style campaign. She was wrong on being able to paper-over her war vote. She was wrong on whether political pandering would look like, well, pandering. And wrong on a “Southern Strategy.” We are watching a new politics occurring, and so is she…from a distance.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
