16. Is the "Third Way" like a prequel for a Hillary campaign

to soften the electorate? Bill Clinton ran as a centrist and though I adored his political artistry and his speeches, much of what he did economically caused harm after he left office with all the doors unlocked for Wall Street and the 2%, then Republicans throwing them wide open. To my mind, you can call yourself a centrist Democrat or centrist Republican but it's all code for pro big corporations and big financial institutions. The only difference is in a very few social issues.

Placing their editorial in the Wall Street Journal is like an ad in the classifieds: Wanted. Disenchanted upper class Republicans and Democrats to cobble together faux political party to capture the next Presidential election.

I'd love to see a woman in the Oval but if Hillary wants my vote, she's going to have to move her beliefs and actions a whole lot closer to Senator Warren's----and not just for the primaries.
