As mayor of Baltimore, prospective Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley adopted a “zero-tolerance” crime strategy modeled after that of New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, according to the Washington Post.
Many liberals support Hillary Clinton because she’s not a Republican and wouldn’t it be awesome to have our first woman president and stuff. Other liberals have actual beliefs when it comes to politics, and aren’t convinced by Clinton’s campaign rationale: “I recently became a grandmother and I really want to be president.” Now that Hillary is actually running, some of these liberals are starting to troll her, which is kind of amusing to watch.
Among Democrats who hope Hillary Clinton doesn’t run—and their number is larger than one might think—the complaints are familiar. Age and stamina are the obvious considerations. “Look at Obama’s hair color, just like George Bush’s,” says a prominent Washington insider. “Somebody who’s seventy shouldn’t be president. And I think that’s going to be an interesting issue against her, but who in the Democratic Party is going to have the guts to take on that machine?” A former Clinton campaign adviser is equally blunt. “This is gonna sound superficial”—which is an understatement—“but men do age better than women,” he says. “At seventy she’s not gonna be—it’s not gonna be great.”
