58. Many folks at DU believe that the elimination of corporate influence
from our government is hands down the most critical issue of our time, and that if this issue is not resolved, our democracy and our country in general will continue to decline.

To my knowledge, Sen. Clinton has not addressed this issue in any way; I do not believe that she has even spoken a word about it.
