Charles Krauthammer Calls Clinton Speech ‘A Miss’: Sounded Like Campaign For ‘Third Clinton Term’

The positive reviews of former President Bill Clinton‘s speech at the Democratic National Convention seemed nearly universal. But Fox News’ Charles Krauthammer‘s opinion was starkly different. Deeming it “truly self-indulgent,” Krauthammer said the speech was strange and seemed like a Clinton was running for a third term.

“I think it was a giant swing and a miss,” he said, adding that it won’t “move the needle.” It did have “classic Clinton elements,” he added, noting that it was “humorous” and “engaging.” But there were negatives, Krauthammer said — namely that it was “sprawling, undisciplined and truly self-indulgent.”

“This is one of the strangest nomination speeches I think ever given,” he said. “It was kind of an amalgam between a State of the Union address, a policy wonk seminar and what sounded to me like a campaign speech for a third Clinton term.”

There was “no recognition whatsoever,” Krauthammer argued, that the current conditions are a result of the Obama administration.

“I think it was a wasted opportunity of what could have been a great, stirring, rousing endorsement of Obama,” he said.
