On Monday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, Bloomberg Politics managing editor Mark Halperin criticized potential 2016 Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton on the grounds she has failed to show a grander big picture vision on how to deal with a world that is in turmoil.
“I think at the end that she has been saying on her tour that the economy vision for the future on job creation is going to be a bigger deal if she runs,” Halperin said. “I think she is suffering in the episodic comments from the same thing I think the president is suffering from that President Obama is suffering from, which is it’s all tactics, it’s all episodic. There doesn’t seem to be a big strategic vision on how to deal with the world Jon Meacham is talking about. We’re still dealing with the fallout of the end of the Cold War. We’re still dealing with the fallout of a post-9/11 world. And I think a lot of people are able to question her role in the president’s record on the question of where is the grand strategy? Where is the vision of how to take America into a situation where we’re not dealing episodically with lots of crises without an overall sense of how to bring things together?”
