“Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times,” former Democratic Secretary of State Clinton said. “But the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top,” she continued, ironically referencing the bankers of Wall Street that are among her biggest supporters. But her words were meant for everyday Americans keen to rise above the economic downfall created by Wall Street, so she left that crucial part out.
Unfortunately for her there is a frenzy of Republican presidential contenders ready to call her out on this…or not. Instead, it’s fellow liberals who are worried about her relationship with the big banks while hoping for more progressive candidates such as Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.
For the right however, her age seems to be a more common rallying point. Florida Senator Rubio, the youngest among the confirmed candidates, used it to his advantage. “Just yesterday, a leader from yesterday began a campaign for president by promising to take us back to yesterday,” he said during his campaign launch on Monday. “Yesterday is over, and we are never going back,” he continued, echoing sentiments expressed by fellow candidates Ted Cruz and Rand Paul over the weekend.
All while being too scared to focus on her politics, because let’s face it: she’s as right-wing as they are.
