5. I don't think of Robert Reich as a Clinton apparachik.

Reich served in the Clinton Administration, but he's progressive and independent enough so I could support them.

Please don't get the wrong impression. I am not against the Clintons, just some of their policies, particularly Hillary's strong streak of neoconservatism and regime change activism. On most domestic social policies, they have both been good liberals. On economic and trade policy, she's probably a degree or two to the Left of Obama. But, it's the Mideast that seems to be blowing up, and a lot of that is her work (and that of like-minded liberal hawks and allies in the national security apparatus), and it is not a good thing they've created.
