The policies she fought for – along with her husband and political partner, Bill Clinton – have been foundations of the economic disaster most Americans are still struggling with: the abuses of deregulated Wall Street, rigged corporate trade agreements, racist mass incarceration, and the destruction of the social safety net for poor women and children.

Time to put the pragmatists in their place and Bernie in the rear view mirror. Lesser-Evilism is a charade and, well, evil.
Listen, no one man or woman is going to change the system alone or otherwise be the antidote to the poison that floods us from above, but America needs a real choice--not a battle of the oligarchs.
The Dems led by Clinton are, however, running backwards like a race car stuck in reverse. It's never pretty when that happens.
