The panel on Chris Matthews' Sunday program spent a good amount of time discussing what Bill's role would be if Hillary wins the White House. It was said that he will be her most valued advisor. Of course he already is. He has a lot of what she lacks. Charisma and political savvy being among the most obvious. Also having held the office for eight years doesn't hurt.
All this has made me wonder just exactly what it is that she brings to the table. Is having been in the Senate for a term and a half enough? She has no practical experience in business nor governing. Loyalty as shown by the way (forgive me) she stood by her man; does that count? Or is it merely expedient to further her own ambitions?
She has the Clinton team behind her. To twist arms and bully. She is resurrecting the "right wing conspiracy" mantra. It worked before - maybe it will work again.
These are just things that have been running through my mind as the campaign shapes up. What really concerns me, however, is that if she needs Bill as badly as is suggested, what happens if something happens to him? He has had one close brush with the grim reaper. It could happen again.
Can the dominant female with all she lacks function without her dominant male partner even with all he lacked? The original "twofer" is reinventing itself but I'm wondering if the past should remain just that.
