ABC’s Dowd: There’s Very Little Authenticity with Hillary Clinton

‘The other one, you — there’s no question about it as they’re experienced and competent, but there’s very little authenticity’

DOWD: "Well, yes, I still believe he’s going to get in because if he wasn’t getting in, I think you’d be seeing this whole series of other signals in this race. I thought that after the debate, because you had two main candidates — Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton — both who did well in the debate, but both who don’t have everything the voters want. One has great authenticity — Bernie Sanders — and great passion and does very well, but you wonder about his experience. The other one, you — there’s no question about it as they’re experienced and competent, but there’s very little authenticity. Joe Biden comes in and says I have both of those things, it’s sort of the Goldilocks candidate — one is too hot, one is too cold, I’m just right. And that’s why he gets in the race. In the past, is I don’t know exactly — he’s got to hope that Bernie Sanders either wins or does very well in Iowa, then wins in New Hampshire, and then the opening is there."
