His arguments remind me a lot of my own in 2008. I have always thought of these statements more as points in her favor rather than criticisms of anyone else. That said, I think I can safely predict that the fact that I admit to having used these arguments in 2008 is going to generate angry responses from some quarters. Such is the burden borne by Hillary supporters who did not suddenly wake up to her in 2015 and have known her foci, goals, and objectives for decades. Got my flak jacket on.
