The False Start of Hillary Clinton's Presidential Campaign

Georges Ugeux | Posted 06.13.2015 | Politics
Georges Ugeux

Why on earth did Hillary Clinton hide when announcing her well-known intention to seek, for the second time, the White House? Why would she mandate her campaign chairman, former Bill Clinton's chief of staff, to announce her decision through social media rather than doing it herself?

5 Radical Ideas Hillary Should Support

Robert Kuttner | Posted 05.29.2015 | Politics
Robert Kuttner

I've argued that Hillary Clinton is at risk of being a weak presidential nominee -- on several counts. She seems like yesterday's news rather than tomorrow's. The excitement of a having a breakthrough woman president is blunted by the fact that her husband got there first. She will raise a ton of money from Wall Street, just like the Republican nominee, blurring differences and depressing turnout. Despite the absence of a formidable primary challenger (assuming Elizabeth Warren doesn't run), Clinton is likely to under-perform in the primaries. Still, she is likely to be the Democratic nominee. While it's good that Clinton is positioning herself as more of a progressive, I think she needs to be even more radical, both to generate real enthusiasm and to address America's real problems.
