In 2008 Barack offered up one of the better debate one-liners when he told Hillary Clinton that she was “likeable enough.” One doubts that too many other politicians would have gotten away with such a withering put-down.
Whatever you think about the polls and about Hillary Clinton's lack of accomplishments, the greater truth has just emerged in data about naming practices.
You see, in the months prior to the Clinton presidency, mothers across America became far more likely to name their daughters Hillary. And yet, as the chart shows, once they got to know HRC, "Hillary" crashed and burned. It has never really recovered. If it was a stock you would have lost big on it.
The Washington Post has the chart:
To know Hillary Clinton is to know that you do not want your daughter to be associated with her in any way whatever. That means that, among her dubious achievements, Hillary Clinton has turned her first name into a stigma.
If you want to know how mothers really feel about Hillary, the chart tells the story. She's not even likeable enough.
