Establishment media begins to admit Clinton has problems

This is an interesting example of the major media beginning to notice that not all is well in the Clinton campaign, albeit concentrating on the problems Trump is creating rather than her own as the politically riskiest candidate the Democratic Party has put forth in modern times.

NY Times -  Democrats could hardly believe their good fortune last month when it became clear that Hillary Clinton was headed to a general election showdown with Donald J. Trump. Mr. Trump carried so much baggage and had insulted so many voting blocs that some Clinton supporters began to imagine a landslide.

But early optimism that this would be an easy race is evaporating. In the corridors of Congress, on airplane shuttles between New York and Washington, at donor gatherings and on conference calls, anxiety is spreading through the Democratic Party that Mrs. Clinton is struggling to find her footing.

While she enjoys many demographic advantages heading into the fall, key Democrats say they are growing worried that her campaign has not determined how to combat her unpredictable, often wily Republican rival, to whom criticism seldom sticks and rules of decorum seem not to apply.

.... As a candidate, Mrs. Clinton is not without her own issues to overcome, including her inability to quickly put away Senator Bernie Sanders and her use of a private email server when she was secretary of state, feeding a perception she is not trustworthy. In a report delivered this past week to Congress, the State Department’s inspector general strongly criticized her for the practice.

This blind spot high in the liberal apparatus is either hilarious or tragic, depending on if you give a shite about party politics.

All indications are that The Donald is going to positively use her up, which will be good for a laugh on a few levels.

Ironically, Sanders is probably Trump's nemesis: the social democrat from Brooklyn thrashes the rich idiot from Manhattan. Certainly Trump's advisers think so, judging from the abortive debate.
