Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The Clinton Conundrum

HRC came out and made the sort of apology she should have made months ago.

But, the damage - which is pretty ridiculous - is done.  And what's more, people will assume that this is all done for the cameras, that she doesn't really mean it.

On the other side, she's doing everything we - the Democratic constituency - are asking her to do.  She's embracing more economic populism.  She's being feisty against the GOP.  She's downplaying her hawkishness.  She's reaching out well to minorities.

And now she's apologizing for the email nontroversy.  Which we asked her to do.

What more do you want?
