In a new Op-ed for the San Francisco Chronicle, ex-SF mayor Willie Brown calls for a Trump-Hillary rematch.
Brown makes it clear he’s not impressed with the rest of the Democrat field.
Brown calls Hillary “the smartest of the bunch.”
From SF Chronicle – By Willie Brown
It’s time for Hillary Clinton to come out of retirement, lace up the gloves and get back in the ring with President Trump for what would be the biggest political rematch ever.
Call me crazy, but from what I’ve seen so far, Clinton is the only candidate short of Barack Obama who has the brains, the battle-tested brawn and the national presence to take out Trump. And Obama can’t run.
Bernie Sanders was fading even before his heart started acting up. Joe Biden has become Trump’s main talking point in the whole Ukraine-China impeachment mess, which hardly helps him. And he wasn’t exactly running away with it before that.
Elizabeth Warren has a following, but it’s not that much broader than Sanders’. If he drops out, she might pick up some of his votes. But there’s the big question of whether she appeals to anyone besides the furthest left element of the Democratic Party.
Depression over the current field was swirling through my head the other day when I popped into the office of my friend Steven Kay and saw that famous picture of Muhammad Ali standing victorious over Sonny Liston hanging on the wall.
That’s when the light went on: “Rematch!”
Think about it. Hillary is still the smartest of the bunch. She’s also better known than any of the candidates, so she doesn’t need a lot of money.
Most of all, she can take a punch. Heck, she can take a 2-by-4 over the head and stay standing.
