It is a common enough thing in party politics. The candidate with the most money, best organization, most favorable press, etc., is a disappointment to the purists of the party. Winning isn’t enough. What does it profit a party if it gains the whole world and loses (in the present case) its progressive soul?
So no surprise that, as Alexandra Jaffe of the Hill reports:
Emails sent by liberal activists and obtained by The Hill reveal significant dissatisfaction with Hillary Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016. The critical messages about the former first lady show that she has a long way to go to assuage skepticism from influential voices on the left.
Clinton’s too much of a hawk, too cozy with Wall Street, hasn’t spoken out enough on climate change, and will be subject to personal questions and criticisms, members of the group stated in the emails.
True believers are, well, going to believe. And, as Mrs. Clinton no doubt understands, come around on Election Day.
