WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats are struggling to put the bitter 2016 election behind them as the party’s current chairman and his predecessor bicker over Hillary Clinton’s failed campaign, further exposing deep divisions two days before the closely watched Virginia governor’s race that could foretell Democratic prospects in 2018 and beyond.

The dueling across Sunday news shows was triggered by the disclosure that Donna Brazile, the interim Democratic leader during the final months of the campaign, considered an effort to replace Clinton as the presidential nominee because of health concerns.

“The charge that Hillary Clinton was somehow incapacitated is quite frankly ludicrous,” said Tom Perez, who took over as Democratic National Committee chairman after Donald Trump won the election.

Brazile, who claimed “tremendous pressure” to devise a backup ticket led by then-Vice President Joe Biden after Clinton fainted at an event, pushed back: “Go to hell. I’m going to tell my story.”

The dispute was spurred by revelations by Brazile in a memoir being released Tuesday and reported on by The Washington Post. It reflected simmering tensions between establishment and insurgent wings that will set the party’s future course on issues from its platform to the primary schedule and use of superdelegates — party leaders and elected officials who get a say in the nomination — in the 2020 presidential race.

“One of the things, as we go forward, is to give more power to the grass roots in all this,” said House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California, urging Democrats not to “relitigate elections.”

Brazile writes that she considered initiating Clinton’s removal after the candidate collapsed while leaving a 9/11 memorial service in New York City, and Brazile contemplated a dozen combinations to replace Clinton and her running mate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine. Brazile wrote that she settled on Biden and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker as having the best chance of defeating Republican Trump.

Brazile says the larger issue was that Clinton campaign was “anemic” and had taken on “the odor of failure.”

But, she says, “I thought of Hillary, and all the women in the country who were so proud of and excited about her. I could not do this to them.”

The revelations elicited a strong weekend rebuttal from Clinton’s former campaign staffers. An open letter signed by more than 100 people said they “do not recognize the campaign” that Brazile “portrays in the book.”

Who are you trying to convince me or you? Because you can’t tell me who am or how I think with your watered down cool aid theory.

You keep TRUMPANZING right off the cliff to prison with that damn fool & don’t forget your matching “Make America Great Again” bracelets.

    Hillary didn’t follow President Obama’s strategy she underestimated these racist & assumed she would get the votes because she’s white. She thought if Obama got elected then she had it in the bag, but you see the wHite women came out in record numbers & voted for the pu$$Y grabbing, womanizing, woman hater rather than voting for a white woman who would continue the successful policies of a black man. Another reason Hillary lost is because Communist Bernie Sanders split the vote & helped trump win!!! If it had it not been for Bernie & the 17% of black dummies who Voted for this loser She probably would have won.

      You have no clue about what you are talking about.obama policies were not working and the black communities knew it, just wouldn’t admit it.The reason hillary lost is because America was tired of her, her husband and the democratic party corrupt ways.As for the black dummies that voted for Bernie they saw the corruption of obama and the clintons and wanted to try someone new. Unlike yourself who would blindly vote democratic regardless of how corrupt they are. You are the type of voter that are finally becoming irrelevant as more voters are starting to vote in their best interest. You have not and refuse to leave the democratic plantation, afraid of change.So you stay on the plantation and keep drinking the Kool-Aid bs you have been fed while the rest of the world leaves you behind. Eventually your kind will die off like sheep following the slaughter.

      • @hoodtechie. How in the hell can you come on this website and say Obama was corrupt?? Your prez has been corrupt since the day he took office. Gtfooh. Get the eff off this website with that shit. We aren’t here for it

        And the voters your dumb ass included, who voted for this fool didn’t vote with their best interest they voted with their racism mad because a black man governed successfully for 8 years. Your thought trump would be your answer to Obama & it backfired miserably.. And by the way Obama gave Middle Class a $300 Billion Record Breaking Tax Cut a $2 Trillion Dollar Stimulus, 95% working families under the ACA..Your bulls**t lies.

  3. I remember watching cnn during the primary, Donna Barzile was say please give us Donald Trump, the democratic party want Donald Trump, she was pushing Hillary Clinton, so why now she is saying that Hillary did something crooked, well i believe she been crooked when her husband was in the white house, when he was governor of Arkansas, senator of New York, The democratic thought that she would win, now look at what happen, we have this fool in the white house, the Democratic should have picked someone else beside crooked Hillary, but no they pushed for this woman and she lost, we are stuck with a war monger, hater, stupid, running this nation, with no end in sight as to what is going to happen.

      Donald Trump, the best thing to happen to America. His election is upsetting the establishment on both sides. He won get over it, get use to it and accept it.I plan on voting for him again in 2020.We black people needed this wakeup call and stop being so complacent to the democratic party.Democrats had 2 candidates that were out of touch with what’s going on in this country. Recycling the same failed policies over and over again, and look where it has gotten the black families, more government dependency.

        You ain’t black! Who in the f**k do you think your fooling? You sound like a god damn fool trying to convince black people that trump is the answer. What policy has this racist put in place to help blacks? Name one, taking health care away from 30 million, tax breaks for the rich, cutting after school programs, meals on wheels for senior citizens, putting policy in place that will destroy our financial institutions, GTFOH with that bullshit!! We’re complacent because we won’t vote for a mentally-I’ll racist who hates black people. You truly are a dumb MF.
