In negative campaigning, facts are often obscured, successes are diminished in significance, failures are amplified, and perspective is sometimes taken as reality. It will be no different against Hillary Clinton in 2015 and 2016.

We've already seen how Barack Obama has been used to channel white America's racial fears into a complete shutdown of compromise, a cornerstone of American Democracy. A Hillary Clinton Presidency will look a lot like that. Lose the racism. Use the gender fear.

This is entirely about the former Secretary of State's looks, which means it is entirely about tying her worth back to her sexuality, rather than her work. And until recently, we were a culture that uniformly portrayed older women as asexual, which meant they were invisible.

Hillary Clinton: From Symbolism to Specifics

Robert Kuttner | Posted 04.12.2015 | Politics
Robert Kuttner

Clinton's strategy isn't just about winning over the progressive base. It's about energizing the electorate. If all the people who recognize themselves in this video -- the young, the poor, minorities, single women -- actually get excited and turn out to vote (as they did not do in the mid-term elections of 2010 and 2014), Clinton wins. But the devil will be in the details. Clinton cannot sustain this sort of aspirational politics in the more than 18 months between now and November 2015 without getting very specific. In many ways, the most interesting political contest to come is not the battle for the nomination or even the likely campaign between Clinton and her Republican rivals. No, the contest to watch is the fight between the campaign Clinton needs to wage and the one that will be acceptable to her Wall Street sponsors.
