For John, BLUF: Ms Clinton has inevitability stamped on her forehead, but I am not buying it. I have more faith in the Democrats. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Nation of Change, a Progressive web newspaper, we have former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich on Ms Hillary Clinton, who is expected to announce her candidacy today. The article is headlined "The Defining Moment, and Hillary Rodham Clinton".
Here is the conclusion:
If she talks about what’s really going on and what must be done about it, she can arouse the Democratic base as well as millions of Independents and even Republicans who have concluded, with reason, that the game is rigged against them.Actually, it sounds like he is looking to Senator E Warren.
The question is not her values and ideals. It’s her willingness to be bold and to fight, at a time when average working people need a president who will fight for them more than they’ve needed such a president in living memory.
This is a defining moment for Democrats, and for America. It is also a defining moment for Hillary Clinton.
