Hillary to Dems: ‘Suck it up; I’m all you’ve got’

If you’re a Democrat, and you weren’t impressed with Hillary Clinton’s news conference yesterday — and judging from the reaction of many in the mainstream media, they weren’t —the former secretary of state has a rather pithy imperative for you: Suck it up.

Fox News’s Chris Stirewalt writes that Clinton’s message that “she’s all those on the left have got” was reportedly addressed to the media as well:

There’s no viable alternative to her other than a Republican president. So they will have to choose whether they will side with her or with the GOP. Clinton even said that she would much rather have been there making partisan attacks on Senate Republicans, but noooooooo… she had to speak about her emails. All of those in the media and in Congress who had cautiously suggested that Clinton should show she was innocent of wrongdoing by coming clean got a big, wet raspberry from the Democratic frontrunner. The woman who has had attendants by her side since the late 1970s offered one flimsy excuse – convenience – for having operated a secret email server for government business every day of her tenure as secretary of state. And after that, it was just plain dismissive.

It will be interesting to see how and if any of Clinton’s Democratic challengers will rise to her boasts.
