On CNN’s “New Day” on Monday, the Atlantic’s Molly Ball explained why an attack levied by Vice President Joe Biden aimed at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at a fundraiser in South Carolina is significant and could be a tell-tale sign of what’s to come in a potential Biden-Clinton Democratic nomination match-up.
“Well, it’s funny because this is sort of the case that then-Sen. Barack Obama made back in ’08,” Ball said. “You had this case that, you know, we all remember the ‘90s – peace and prosperity. They actually weren’t so great – this sort of economic unraveling began. Biden in public settings makes the same sort of argument for the blue collar economic populist strain. But it does give it a potential opening as he see it, I think. And the problem for him is that it is a hard case to make when he has been part of the Obama administration and that’s the economic record he’s going to have.”
