Short take on the problem of Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee

From Russ Wellen, Hillary Clinton Animated by the Spirit of Scoop Jackson Foreign Policy in Focus 05/20/2016:

Electing Hillary Clinton president gives the Democratic Party license to think it can continue to run a candidate for president that can bring in the money, but whose politics lags behind Democratic voters. Thus condemning the party to unnecessarily close victories or losses. Worse: we will be stuck with a president content to make incremental changes in a time of emergency that calls for sweeping gestures.
