The title is almost an oxymoron as the Democrat nominee will be based on the fact that they DON’T take on the moneyed interests. The corporate media is on the look out for any potential candidate that won’t tow the corporate line. If such a candidate emerges, the MSM will swiftly move in to demonize, marginalize and ignore them until the average voter grows suspicious of that candidate. The democrats will play the gender card with Hillary much as they did the race card with Obama which we all saw how poorly that played out for African Americans!
Meanwhile third party candidates will find it more difficult than ever to just get on the ballot. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders have little to no chance of being nominated despite their attempts to appear pro-military simply because they have discussed reigning in the moneyed interests. If any Progressive were only successful in campaign finance reform, at least the 99% would have a chance in the future to break free from corporate servitude, but this seems unlikely as most Americans still don’t recognize corporate fundamentalism as the biigest threat to our survival. Instead expect the usual crap from our MSM about how ‘unseen enemies’ in far away places pose the biggest threat to our “freedom”. Americans are simply not politically enlightened enough to make the transition from corpocracy to democracy as most people have bought into the mainstream narratives about economic growth, tax breaks, terrorism and patriotic slogans like “God Bless America” and “Freedom is not free!”. Recent victories like the temporary stay of execution against net neutrality and the KXL pipeline, will be exploited to the max as the Democrats will use these small examples as proof of their commitment to the 99%. This ‘gilded age’ will prove far more resistant to change as their predecessors experienced over 100 years ago. Robert Reich knows this, but is really powerless to bring about the changes we need despite his articles and speeches. Nevertheless, it is good that the message continues to be put out there. Now, if only the people would pay attention, can we possibly hold out hope for our future.
