Most Clintonites expect that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) wouldn’t challenge Hillary Clinton for the nomination.
Donors say she doesn’t stand a chance at beating Clinton, but still, a sense of worry persists about the wing of the party she represents.
The economic worries of the country will be front and center during the next election, and some Hillary allies fear it could be a blind spot for Clinton.
“If I have one big fear, that’s it,” said one Clinton supporter. “She needs to present a strong message on the economy and tell people why she not only supports Wall Street but every day economic issues. She needs to unite the party.”
Commentary by The Secular Jurist: Good luck in trying to unite the party, Hillary, because you’re going to need it. We progressives dislike neoliberal corporatist Democrats just as much as we dislike establishment Republicans. Only the xenophobic, dominionist, anti-government looney-tunes in the Tea Party evoke our ire more. Neither political party represents us. We are being treated as outcasts, and that’s exactly how we will act in 2016.
