Jeb Bush 2016 Looks Like Hillary Clinton 2008

In the month and half since Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy for President, it has become evident that she will not make the same mistakes as she did in 2008. Ms. Clinton begins this race as a much stronger frontrunner than eight years ago, but she has also been a better candidate, tacking to the left as necessary, articulating a stronger raison d'être for her candidacy and avoiding getting dragged down by scandals. The scandals still are out there, and Ms. Clinton's unwillingness to answer questions from the media with any frequency has infuriated many beat reporters, but it remains apparent that neither Bernie Sanders, nor any other Democrat, will Obama her in 2016.
