The Clinton brand



I was grumping at cable TV commentators last night as several tried to make the case that the unlikable Terry McAuliffe's defeat in the Virginia gubernatorial primary was somehow a loss for Bill Clinton, who had campaigned for McAuliffe. Politico, the Republican-leaning website, echoed conventional Beltway wisdom.

Outside the Beltway, Blake Rutherford has a much clearer view.

If the McAuliffe defeat signals anything it’s that friendship alone is no indication of political success, at least not in elected politics.
