How Hillary May Approach the "Inequality" Issue

Hillary Has a Plan to Attack Inequality—Without Attacking Her Corporate Donors (Noam Scheiber) from the New Republic
"Clinton is savvy enough to recognize that “inequality” encompasses two separate but related issues. The first is the economic stagnation afflicting people in the middle and bottom part of the income scale. The second is the rapidly improving fortunes of the ultra-rich, who are leaving all the rest of us, even the kinda rich and merely affluent, very far behind."
Don't be surprised if Hillary gets pulled to the left during the '16 primaries -- even if she faces little of no opposition.  The Democratic base has a LOT LESS tolerance for the triangulating "third way" pro-rich policies of the 1990s -- and this approach smells of it.  -- Nuggetsman.
