I agree with some of your argument, Mr. Reich; but the following presumptuous statement lacks any factual basis:
"Hillary may not possess Bernie Sanders’s indignation about the rigging of our economy and democracy, or be willing to go as far in remedying it, but she’s shown herself a capable and responsible leader."
What exists in her resume to define her as capable?
The real question extends into: Capable of what?
She's very capable of carrying water for the Military Industrial Complex and while painting herself as a Progressive, she's a warmonger.
She's also very capable of delivering to the Big Banks and Wall Street as seen in the way these entities "recognize" her for her "capabilities." What's the going hourly speech rate these days for one so "capable"?
A similar case could be made about what it is on her record that shows that she's "responsible."
She's responsible for defending the indefensible.
She's responsible for making a National Security decision that wasn't all that secure (the private emails).
Dangling words of praise into thin air without proving their merit is a tried and true tactic of the MSM.
Mrs. Clinton will not get my vote. I guess I'll be one of those people who votes her conscience, and if Sanders doesn't get in... I KNOW it won't be because of a lack of popular approval (or TRUE vote counts).
And what is done through corruption, deviousness, and graft is NOT something that I will take personal responsibility for. THAT is another FAKE meme meant to punish or penalize all souls for the ACTIONS of very specific (as in identifiable) sociopaths.
