Of course she blames everyone else, she's just like Hillary! That's why she was defeated, she takes no responsibility!

Perhaps a voting record that suggested moderation might have served her well. Voting 95 percent Obamanoid--which is basically what she did for his eight years--is a self-disqualifying act.

^^Damn right. Offensive to shitheads like you who are so scared you shit your pants at the thought of having to be a productive member of society.

^^Yes! Keep fighting and keep hating! That is the ticket! Everyone who doesn't share your views is your enemy. The time for revolt is coming! Remember no collusion and keep listening to Fox for further updates!

Her point in the interview that democrat party has abandoned moderates is true. Used to be the Dems cared about American jobs and wages and stuff. Now they just push a transgender and homosexuality agenda - plus liberals love war these days.

It is a sting to lose an election, no doubt, but as a consolation Claire can reflect that she could/should have lost the seat in '12 but for "legitimate" todd akin (and credit her for helping orchestrate that collapse). Plus she's still really rich so that helps.

@ 2:48 is right, the Democratic Party took the moderates for granted and Trump got into office.

But now that the Republican Party has shit on the moderates, things may get interesting in 2020.

Figured your 2018 Taxes yet? Brace yourself!

Thing is mccaskill was never that good but a very LUCKY politician to be in the right place at the right time to win a couple of elections. Big time help from those feckless repubs, first the incompetent george w. bush, then the good ole boys in Missouri who'd rather lose a seat than have Sarah Steelman get it. Josh Hawley kicked her tired ass. mccaskill a moderate? Naw, just another self-serving GRIFTER!!!

Claire, one good reason is that you just really aren’t likable. Sure, you schmooze and put on your “down home girl” act, but even then, you still come off as arrogant and mouthy. You had many years to prove yourself, yet, like many other politicians of both parties, you were nothing special and will be easily forgotten.
