As Long As Hillary Is Always A Topic On The Tip Of Trump's Tongue......

then maybe Hillary needs to be more in Trump's face on a day-to-day basis.

I know that typically the losing candidate is expected to fade into obscurity. For the most part Hillary has done that. She has stayed away from the limelight and only comes out from time to time - when Trump does something really offensive and detrimental to this country - like she did the other day when she spoke out on Trump and this child separation issue.

Maybe Hillary needs to take a different tactic.

As long as Trump keeps on going back to criticizing Hillary every chance he gets - on Twitter - at his raliies - when the press catches him on the WH lawn, etc - Maybe Hillary needs to be on Trump's back as much as he is on hers?

Maybe Hillary needs to be out there acting like an alternative president? Maybe she needs to point out Trump's mis-steps and lies as he makes them? Maybe she needs to point out to the American People what she would do if she was elected president instead of Trump?

Maybe she needs to be out there being the alternative president and constantly in Trump's face?

At least it would put Trump constantly on the defensive having to justify his every action and lie.

What does Hillary have to lose if she takes this tact?

She should show the American People what they're missing. And it would really piss off Trump to no end.

What do you think about this idea? Am I on to something here?

1. Love it!

Thought something similar myself. We need a strong voice keeping his deplorable policies and actions in the forefront!

2. Trump is Doing His Very Best to Put Hillary in the Crosshairs

Getting in Trump's face on a daily basis could be very dangerous for Hillary's personal safety (and her entire family). Can you imagine the death threats she already receives? We're not dealing with rational adults here.

3. Cue the cries of "She needs to just GO AWAY!"

 

I trust Hillary to know when to speak up and when to step back.

He would also use his fans' hatred of her to deflect from what is actually going on. They already act like she's this big threat to him.

I think she will focus on mentoring and endorsing progressive candidates.

5. Yes, I'm with you all the way on that. No point throwing a red meat lifeline to the rwnjs. Dems are

on target to at least take back the house, and yes Hillary is already doing plenty of mentoring and endorsing work.

4. No, you're only going to re-invigorate the Reps. Democrats are doing fine at the moment, making this

about local issues. Hillary is contributing indifferent ways, which seems to be working too.

8. She's getting out there endorsing candidates, speaking at events, being supportive without being

seen as the leader of the Democratic Party. Trump would like nothing better than to make the Midterms a Trump v Clinton fight, and get out the Repubs who may otherwise stay at home. I don't know if this is a coordinated strategy, but after a shaky couple of months, the Democrats lead is growing again.
