How much inequality, despair, poverty and friendship can a person take?


I believe that Hillary, like Bill, is a Big Chill candidate, who thinks all that 'love and peace and imagine no possessions' stuff in the 60s was just a whole lotta crap. That's just how she describes Bernie Sanders's plan to move money from the over-compensated financial class to the under-compensated human class. She's a realist. I think Bernie is a realist too. I think he knows that if you go in looking to make only a small, incremental difference, you end up making even less of a difference.

Jeff Dorchen gets around to endorsing Bernie Sanders, but not before revealing Bill Clinton's greatest trick, what he likes about Hillary's Big Chill pragmatism, what he doesn't like about Hillary's Big Money opportunism, the limits of selective realism, the challenges of snowball course alteration, and the joys of monotonous warnings about economic inequality.
