Appearing on “Special Report” Monday night, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer slammed the idea that Hillary Clinton could run in 2016 as the “new Hillary” in the wake of the multiple scandals surrounding her potential White House bid.
Krauthammer told host Bret Baier that the Clinton Foundations’s acceptance of donations from foreign governments and the email saga have “greatly diminished” her 2016 chances.
KRAUTHAMMER: She lost in ‘08. When you are a losing candidate and you run a second time, you try to run as a new person. [Richard] Nixon loses in 1960, and in ’68 he is “the new Nixon.” It has been 15 years since all the shenanigans in the ’90s. There was a hope that with Hillary, that shadow, that cloud, would go away. But with the donations from the foreign entities and the emails now, regardless of details, there is no “new Hillary.” She can’t possibly run on it. It is going to be the old Hillary, and that makes her chances greatly diminished.
