Why Hillary Terrifies the GOP

Good old-fashioned misogyny just doesn’t play the way it used to.

Over the course of 30 years, the GOP has become practiced, versatile and expert at trashing Hillary Clinton. But suddenly, those moves just aren’t working anymore.

By Sady Doyle

“Hillary Clinton—the name alone strikes dread in the heart of freedom loving Americans.” So reads the opening line of the “About” section on the website of The Hillary Project PAC. And whether or not we are all, in fact, filled with “dread” when we think about the former secretary of state, the Hillary Project certainly seems to be: The website bills itself as “the only thing standing between Hillary and the White House.” The fine folks behind The Hillary Project—they include Republican operative Christopher M. Marston, who just stepped down in the face of blowback—are convinced that a 2016 Clinton run is not only likely, but inevitable. They’re also convinced that as it stands now, if she runs, she will win.
