DON’T DUST OFF THE CROWN YET
Democrats contend there’s no unity or mission in the Republican Party anymore. But wait. It may be time for the those Dems to face the same issue.
“Liberal leaders want Hillary Clinton to face a primary challenge in 2016 if she decides to run for president. The goal of such a challenge wouldn’t necessarily be to defeat Clinton. It would be to prevent her from moving to the middle during the Democratic primary,” says Alexander Bolton, a Senate reporter for The Hill.
Yes, well. That dreaded, pesky middle.
“I do think the country would be well served if we had somebody who would force a real debate about the policies of the Democratic Party and force the party to debate positions and avoid a coronation,” says Roger Hickey, co-director of the progressive group Campaign for America’s Future.
“I’m convinced that ‘the fix is in’ and that without a huge effort starting right now, Hillary Clinton will be the next president of the United States,” Maricopa County (Ariz.) Sheriff Joe Arpaio says
in a fundraising message for Stop Hillary PAC.
