Ralph Benko has some interesting insights about Hillary Clinton and her 2016 run for President:

Hillary Clinton, Running Scared

Hillary Clinton has zero ability credibly to run to the left of Elizabeth Warren.  Witness: she tried to backpedal her claim that businesses don’t create jobs.  As noted in Newser, she stated

“I short-handed this point the other day, so let me be absolutely clear about what I’ve been saying for a couple of decades.” She adds that a strong economy is based on businesses and corporations creating ‘good-paying jobs,’ not on corporations getting tax breaks while outsourcing jobs and “stash[ing] their profits overseas.”

This is a very lame “clarification.”  She thereby managed to antagonize both her party’s activist base and its moderate wing.

Things fall apart.  The straddle cannot hold.
