Hilarious: Hillary struggles to answer clearly what her campaign message is

Facing questions from MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski (who states that she would vote for Hillary) ought to be pure softball for the former SecState/senator/first lady.  But oddly enough, explaining what is her message – clearly – proved troublesome.  All she could manage was a series of boilerplate slogans.

I guess it has something to do with GOP bad/grandmas good. Or something.

As Ed Driscoll comments at Instapundit:

Ted Kennedy, call your office! Shades of 1979 when, “As the cameras rolled, [CBS's Roger Mudd] popped the now-famous question: Why do you want to be president? Even if he had not been a Kennedy, what followed was stunning: a hesitant, rambling and incoherent nonanswer; it seemed to go on forever without arriving anywhere. Mudd threw another softball, and Kennedy swung and missed again. On the simple question that would define him and his political destiny, Kennedy had no clue.”

In retrospect, Kennedy’s inability to answer coherently led to the conclusion that he wanted the office solely because of his family – it was his turn.  This effectively ended his legitimacy.  That shoe seems to fit Hillary pretty closely.
