    but it's good to see her framing it this way. now, let's try to engage her in how we fit the policies to that framing.

    •  When has she not framed it that way? (17+ / 0-)

      A concern for widening economic inequality has been on every Democratic lip for decades.  The proposed solutions, however . . . that's another matter altogether.

      Actually, after a couple decades' worth of HRC, I know what her solutions are, so what comes out of her press releases and from her lips will be at best moderately amusing.  If you want someone with a serious solution to widening economic inequality, then those who have been paying attention all these years will never find her a terribly inspiring candidate.  At best she'll be someone who can be occasionally rescued from her instincts and inclinations.

      As you report rapturously in a diary from just a couple of hours ago, she's still got that invincibility thing going on.  So what makes you think she can be engaged?

          •  i don't think so (0+ / 0-)

            she's not a neoliberal. she may overly value banks and the markets, but i do think she also genuinely cares about traditional democratic constituencies.

            •  Keep telling yourself that. (0+ / 0-)

              Unfortunately, that won't make her any less neoliberal.
