Yesterday Bernie Sanders pounded Hillary Clinton in West Virginia, a state she easily won in 2008 when she received 67% of the vote against Barack Obama.

The president got 26%.

But that was then.

Now Hillary Clinton’s campaign is drifting.

Donald Trump is rising in the polls, Secretary Clinton's aides are talking to the FBI about the email case and she is even being criticized by ardent liberals.

JON STEWART, COMEDIAN“What I think about Hillary Clinton is, you know, I imagine to be a very bright woman without the courage of her convictions because I'm not even sure what they are. ((EDIT)) Maybe a real person doesn't exist underneath there.  I don't know.”

Also this morning Vice President Biden said something that may annoy Mrs. Clinton.

JOE BIDEN: “I had planned on running.  It’s an awful thing to say—I think I would have been the best president.  But, um, it was the right thing.  Not just my family, but for me.” 

Talking Points will remind everyone that if Secretary Clinton is indicted over the email fracas, it is likely to be Joe Biden, not Bernie Sanders who will get the Democratic nod.

Party chieftains know Senator Sanders is simply too far out there to win the presidency.

So why is Hillary Clinton having so much trouble?

First of all, Sanders has rattled her.  She never expected that kind of intense challenge from a socialist.

Second, although the secretary is smart, she's not a natural campaigner.

While Sanders has energized younger voters, Mrs. Clinton cannot seem to win over the far left.

KWAME ROSE, CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVIST AND SANDERS SUPPORTER“You have young people in this city who aren't loyal to the Clintons because their parents were locked up by the 1994 crime bill, their parents were locked up with the War on Drugs, welfare reform.  These are the victims of the Clinton administration.  This is a new generation.”

So what! Younger voters don't turn out in large numbers.

In order to beat Donald Trump, Mrs. Clinton is going to have to come out of the left-wing precincts and appeal to independent voters.

Therefore she will have to talk to people like me and answer responsible questions.

Trump talks to everybody.  He's on MSNBC all the time, but Hillary Clinton is very cautious granting interviews.

At this point she might want to rethink that strategy.

If she truly believes that she is the right person to run this country, then she should talk to all Americans, not just ideological soul mates.

For now the Clinton campaign is in trouble, no doubt.

But a resounding victory in California could change all that.

The vote in the Golden State is on June 7th.

And that's the memo.
