Bill Clinton : Not sure HE could win Arkansas

Posted By on Tue, Apr 21, 2015 at 6:32 PM

Politico quotes Bill Clinton as saying Arkansas has moved so far into the Republican column he's not sure he could win the state again. Hell, he only got 53 percent in 1992 and 54 percent in the 1996 landslide.

The good news is that no Democratic presidential candidate expects to win Arkansas. The bad news is that presidential campaigns sometimes serve as get-out-the-vote help for other candidates. But it wasn't so long ago that they said Mark Pryor had the greatest GOTV operation in the history of the political universe. Hillary's charisma will just have to carry the day in increasing Democratic turnout here.
