An interesting article on how problematic the Hillary candidacy is for the Democrat Left. “There’s a poorly kept secret in the media and on the progressive Left heading into 2016: They don’t want Hillary Clinton.” Apparently, even someone as far left as Hillary Clinton isn’t nearly radical enough for the Obama base.
None of which matters. No one… let me allcap that… NO ONE is going to vote for Hillary based on qualifications, or even ideology. Even her supporters admit this.
47% of the country would vote for a sea sponge if it had a D next to its name. It also helps that Hillary and the LIV’s want to vote for another “historic first” “because it’s about time we had a woman president” and then go back to cooing over whatever Celebrity Culture has vomited up this week. Also, a substantial part of the Democrat base is insulated from the economic consequences of social Democratic rule on the basis of wealth, dependence on welfare, or employment in the government bureaucracy. The Democrat base has enough bread and circuses to keep it from having too much curiosity about the outside world, and no friggin’ clue about anything important that’s happening.
The “informed voters” of the Democrat Left and the Democrat center-left will line-up behind Hillary because even if she isn’t as radical as they would like, and even though she reeks of corruption like the smell of a house with 267 cats in it, they will decide that she will be a reliable enough caretaker of Obama’s legacy with the potential to appoint enough SCOTUS Justices to tip the balance and create a leftist court amenable to gun control and censorship of political speech.
