Begala: Americans Should See Hillary Like Meryl Streep Acting in New Role

Monday on CNN’s “The Lead With Jake Tapper,” Democratic strategist and now-adviser to the pro-Hillary super PAC, Paul Begala, said Americans should accept the reintroduction of candidate Clinton just like they accept actors like Meryl Streep portraying different fictional roles.

When Jake Tapper asked, “How can a candidate who has been in the public eye since the—national public eye, since 1991, would be if they win, the second oldest president in American history, second only to Ronald Reagan, how can she cast herself as the candidate of the future?”

Begala said, “New ideas. We know who Meryl Streep is and line up to see the movie. Same woman, new ideas. The announcement yesterday I thought was terrific. That wasn’t the policy side, just the introduction, the presentation. I think you’re going to see some new ideas particularly focused on the economy and on the middle class.”
