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.
