The Brutalist Guide To 2016's Democratic Contenders (Not Named Hillary Clinton)

HuffingtonPost.com | Jason Linkins | Posted 07.16.2014 | Politics

Over at the Columbia Journalism Review, Steven Brill has a "story he'd like to see." Specifically: What's the deal with "the Hillary alternatives?"

Among the reasons I can think of that speak to why there isn't block-to-block coverage of other potential Democratic contenders (besides maybe Elizabeth Warren, more on that later) are: 1) it's 2014 at the moment, and maybe people are showing a modicum of restraint, and 2) Hillary Clinton is currently "freezing the field." Which is a way of saying that she looms so large over the landscape as a potential frontrunner for the nomination, despite not actually campaigning, that it's inhibiting other candidates from doing the sorts of things they need to do to carve out a place in the firmament.

Lincoln Mitchell | Posted 03.24.2014 | Politics
Lincoln Mitchell
