Old woman cites the Beatles

Philip Klein: "If Republicans can't beat Hillary, they should disband the party."
Hillary Clinton certainly has a flair for the ironic. "There may be some new voices in the Republican presidential choir," Clinton observed in Saturday's re-annoucement that she was running for president. "But they're all singing the same old song — a song called 'Yesterday.'"

Clinton was accusing Republicans of being trapped in the past in the same speech that she began by referencing a speech Franklin Roosevelt gave in 1941. And in doing so, she quoted a song the Beatles released in 1965 — before Republicans Scott Walker, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Bobby Jindal had even been born.
Speaking of ironic, I liked her populist criticism against hedge-fund managers as (presumably) her hedge-fund manager son-in-law sat nearby.  Of course the only thing keeping his hedge fund afloat is support from Clinton pals, because Clintons.

So how many "launches" does this make for her campaign? Does she keep forgetting she's already done it?
