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