16. "We need to" isn't promising anything

It's defining what he will works towards as President.

"Over-promising what can reasonably be accomplished."

The cynic in me thinks that could have been Obama's campaign slogan. His time in office shows how a Republican controlled Congress prevents anything from reasonably being accomplished - whether your name is Obama, Sanders on Clinton.

The argument is what will you fight for - what does accomplishment look like for each candidate ?

You're right, those aren't bad ideas. Striving for less, i.e., expanding for-profit prisons, IS a bad idea.
