2. Sorry I messed up the quote feature again.
If De Blasio ran on income inequality, that is not simply social. However, it was a pretty safe thing to run on in a Democratic primary in Manhattan. And running means talking. We have no idea what his actions will be, assuming he is elected. So, in all, I don't find his primary campaign or his win as significant as The Nation seems to have found it.

On the other hand, given that I am considered liberal in this rightist nation, I don't see a lot of harm in their announcing that the nation wants to go left.

What concerns me more are the attempts by MSNBC to sell Hillary and Shrum's apparent assumption that all a Presidential candidate need do to win a primary is phrase things better. That he might be correct concerns me even more.
