Two Attacks on Clinton That Won't Work

Marc Ambinder: "In the past 48 hours, two potential Republican rivals of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton found themselves with the chance to take a shot at the presumed Democratic front-runner in 2016."

"Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) brought up President Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky to show that the so-called "war on women" is a false Democratic attack. And Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) called on Hillary Clinton to be candid about her mismanagement of the deadly violence in Beghazi, Libya."

"Both attacks have superficial plausibility. But if they're the best that Republicans have, then Clinton is an even stronger presidential candidate than she appears to be."
