Some More Radical Ideas for Hillary

I am going to periodically suggest ideas that Hillary Clinton might consider -- both to establish that she is a real-deal progressive and to rally political support from voters whom the economy is leaving behind. Clinton might even outflank some leading progressives by going beyond what is considered politically safe in the current environment. Another name for that is leadership. So if Hillary wants to show that she's a fighter, let her pick some good fights. Trade promotion authority that the White House needs for both the TPP and the TTIP is now hanging by a thread. A well-placed boot by Hillary Clinton would be the coup de grace. It would show gumption, leadership and political nerve -- and gain her immense credit from critics of these bogus deals all across the political spectrum. It's time. Some Wall Street supporters might get off her bandwagon -- and good riddance. She has plenty to spare.
