It’s smart of Hillary Clinton to co-opt Elizabeth Warren‘s message about income inequality and trying to strengthen or rejuvenate the social contact that middle-class Americans received with some abundance before the upper 1% began hijacking the economy and undermining the middle. It would be nice, also, if she would commit to working to prevent the corporate elite from vacuuming and pocketing most of the fresh revenue coming out of the currently healthy economy…but that’s probably a little too Warren-esque for Hillary to support with any conviction. She’s no populist — she’s a corporatist with a center-right bent. But she did say that it’s all about struggling middle class and “earning” their vote and whatnot. She’s wisely not projecting an air of inevitability or entitlement.
