CONGRATULATIONS HILLARY CLINTON!
HOW PROGRESSIVE WAS HILLARY CLINTON’S ACCEPTANCE SPEECH? I was impressed with Hillary’s speech last night. Sure, there was some empty rhetoric, but for the most part I thought it was a very inspiring speech that was littered with progressive policy choices. Perhaps one of Clinton’s most powerful lines used themes Nick Hanauer has outlined in his “parasite economy” argument: “It’s wrong to take tax breaks with one hand and give out pink slips with the other.”
EXPECT MORE WAR: Sigh.
Perhaps the least emphasized fact of this presidential election is that whoever wins, American foreign policy is going to get more belligerent, more inclined to the use of military force to solve problems, less accepting of the limits of American power to resolve conflicts.
