WikiLeaks: Dems worried Hillary would have to go up against GOP candidate other than Trump

The Democrats don’t think much of Donald Trump. We have all known that for quite some time. But it was revealed only in the last day or two that media advisors to the Democratic Party had some grave reservations about Hillary Clinton becoming the candidate owing to her “huge endemic political weaknesses.”

Here is liberal opinion writer and Democratic strategist Brent Budowsky in an email to Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta. The email was in the batch released yesterday by WikiLeaks:

Right now I am petrified that Hillary is almost totally dependent on Republicans nominating Trump….she has huge endemic political weaknesses that she would be wise to rectify…..even a clown like Ted Cruz would be an even money bet to beat and this scares the hell of out me…..


The email is dated March 13 of this year, and it’s in no way clear that Clinton has rectified the weaknesses that scared the hell of out of Budowsky. In fact, if it were not for the mainstream media’s help or the collusion among members of the Obama administration who whitewashed her indictable offenses while secretary of state, she’d probably be lagging in the polls by a hefty margin.
