Late-night comedian Bill Maher has an idea on how Hillary Rodham Clinton can win a presidential bid in 2016: She needs to be more like Jimmy Carter.
“America needs to start defining peace as strength. Do you know who the role model for every president should be? Jimmy Carter,” the HBO host proposed Friday night. “Because he is the one out of all of them who figured out how to sit in office for four years and never fire a shot. And every president’s negative example should be Dick Cheney, who even shot his friends in the face.”
“So Hillary Clinton, I hope you’re listening to this,” he continued. “And I hope you remember that the reason you lost your primary battle in 2008 was because you voted for the Iraq War and some guy named Obama was smart enough to be against it. And in your upcoming campaign, I mean, if there is one, who knows? Anything could happen. I hope you know you don’t have to run as an ‘Iron Lady.’ That was your mistake last time.”
