Did you see Hillary Clinton’s speech on economics today? I couldn’t watch it live and am still looking for a link to a transcript or video, but according to The Washington Post, Clinton “focused on largely familiar proposals, including measures to make college debt-free, increase corporate profit-sharing, expand access to child care and ensure that large companies and the ‘super rich’ pay their ‘fair share’ of taxes.” WaPo also said Clinton vowed to get “dark money” out of politics. That doesn’t sound like a Republican-Lite conservadem to me. Go figure.
Meanwhile, Trump gave a speech today in which he read whopper after big fat whopper off a teleprompter screen. And it seems to have dawned on Bernie Sanders that perhaps the primary outcome won’t be in his favor:
Sen. Bernie Sanders acknowledged for the first time Wednesday “it doesn’t appear” he’ll be the Democratic presidential nominee.
The Vermont senator, speaking during a taped C-SPAN interview, said his presidential campaign is negotiating on an “almost on a daily basis” with presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s team, urging her to stake out the most progressive positions she can on campaign finance reform, health care, higher education and the economy.
Sanders said he and Clinton have had “real differences of opinion.” But he said he’ll do everything he can to defeat presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump and bring as many people into the political process as possible.
“Our job now is to have her (Clinton) listen to what millions of people in this country who supported me want to see happen,” Sanders said during a wide-ranging hourlong interview with C-SPAN’s Steve Scully.
Jesus Fricasseed Christ and all 12 Cajun-Fried Apostles, I just cannot with the fucking Sanders ex-campaign anymore. Open thread!
