To vote for her in the primaries, I would need to believe that the establishment on both the right and the left have so thoroughly strangled the political system that it is no longer "reasonable" to even try for reform.
One of the best shows in the town of Washington, D.C. is not on television. It is an oral argument in before the United States Supreme Court. The nine justices are appointed by the President and confirmed after they assure the U.S. Senate they will be dispassionate "umpires.
