Evidence mounts that Hillary's campaign in crisis

Face it, MSM: the Hillary Clinton campaign is an Edsel, unsalable because she is unappealing and untrustworthy.  But the media will not report it this way until there is a viable alternative in sight for the Dems.  O’Malley can’t exactly promise to do for America what he has done for Baltimore, and Bernie Sanders would land a solid and enthusiastic 20% of the vote, the percentage of the electorate that is actually hard-left.

The latest very telling sign of how serious the crisis is for Hillary comes from The New York Post’s Page Six:

Hillary Clinton had trouble attracting high-powered women to a New York talk hosted by Silda Wall Spitzer two weeks before her campaign officially kicks off. Sources said that after ticket sales fizzled for an intimate, $2,700-per-person, “just for women” meeting on Monday, the event was thrown open to men at the 11th hour, and the deadline extended to buy tickets.

The “Conversation With Hillary Clinton” event at Midtown law firm Akin Gump was originally aiming to attract 125 women. An email invitation seen by Page Six said the event is “just for women.” But by Friday, “They’d only sold 50 tickets, so they threw it open to men,” a source said. “Ticket sales were supposed to close at 10 a.m. Sunday, but the hostesses were working the phones and pushed the deadline till Monday.”

We hear about 90 attendees included former Bill Clinton aide Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney and his husband, Randy Florke, Maurice Tempelsman, Jill Braufman (wife of hedge funder Daniel Nir), Jean Shafiroff and Susan Cole. The event began at noon, but Clinton arrived at 1 p.m. in “a royal blue jacket and black pants.” She then took pictures with donors and delivered a half-hour speech before leaving at about 2 p.m.

While 2,700 bucks is a lot of money to you and me, it is a bargain basement price for a grip-and-grin photo with the presumptive nominee, considered to have a good chance to win the presidency.  It’s the perfect sort of picture to adorn the wall of a lawyer, accountant, or other professional needing to impress clients.  And the fact that they had to dump the women-only lure and work the phones hard to get a less than embarrassing turnout tells us that Hillary’s people have had an unrealistic view of her appeal.

Face it: the Edsel is just not selling the way management thought it would.

Keep your eyes on Elizabeth Warren.  Tick, tick, tick.
