    She comes out with a policy position or makes a statement in support of a bad thing.

    Criticism of the form of 'What she supports is a bad thing. It's a really bad thing. Oppose this bad thing, everybody. Reconsider your support of this bad thing, Hillary.' Sounds good to me.

    'She supports this Bad Thing therefore she's a neoliberal Wall Street sellout and just as bad as the GOP' sounds stupid to me.

    That's my personal position. Your mileage may vary.

    •  So then nothing to talk about with her record? (0+ / 0-)

      Because that is the information we have to consider. If we only criticize new positions she takes then there will be no criticisms.

        (and I'll thank you to not put words in my mouth about things I haven't addressed)....

        "Hillary supported X as Senator. X is a bad thing. We should oppose X and pressure Hillary to say that if elected President she will oppose X."

        Versus

        "Hillary supported X as Senator. This shows she's a neoliberal corporatist sellout who is a DINO."

        What's going to be more productive?
