Why we don't want them running the country

From this NYT article:

“ ‘We’ve been with you all these years,’ ” former President Bill Clinton said, according to Mr. Herrera. “ ‘Now the time has come for you to be with us.’ ”

Mr. Herrera, who had up to that point been undecided in the Democratic race, promptly pledged his support to the Clintons. “The don never asks for a second favor when the first one has been rejected,” he said.

When one of your "supporters" characterizes his interaction with you in the metaphor of interaction with a mafia crime boss, you have a problem. And you're not my kind of politician.
