Instead of pivoting to the center, Clinton keeps shuffling left.
Let’s hear it for the all-but-official Democratic nominee for president — Hillary Sanders.
With Bernie Sanders’s decision yesterday to formally endorse Hillary, the last potential threat to her nomination has been eliminated. In any normal election year, a candidate in that position, especially one running against an opponent as divisive and unqualified as Donald Trump, would begin to pivot to the political center. Instead, Hillary continues to move further and further left. Having apparently decided she can’t run as herself — the slogan “Hey, at least I wasn’t indicted” is less than inspirational — she is doing her best to morph into the Democratic candidate that some people actually liked.
