Hi
what does "I had felt like Charlie Brown with the football" mean here? I Googled "Charlie Brown", it is a cartoon character.


“The polls looked good, but I was anxious. Too many times in this campaign I had felt like Charlie Brown with the football.”

Excerpt From: Hillary Rodham Clinton. “What Happened.” iBooks.

    Lucy (one of the other Peanuts characters) would hold the (American) football on the ground for Charlie Brown to kick, and every time he tried to kick it she would take the ball away. So he was frustrated.
