The Guardian: Why Hillary Will Lose and Why It’s Not Bernie’s Fault

In The Guardian, Steven Thrasher explains why Barack Obama’s poor record could cost Hillary Clinton the election:

Democrats could lose the election this November: just watch Hillary Clinton being booed at her own party convention. But, if that happens, it won’t be the fault of Sanders’ supporters. No – the blame will fall on the DNC. They could have played to the future of our country and the economic vision we desire. Instead, they gave us “super-predator” Clinton and milquetoast, pro-banking Tim Kaine.

I had hoped Obama would deliver genuine economic change – but that didn’t happen. Before becoming a journalist, I even moved to Pennsylvania for a couple of months to volunteer for Barack Obama’s campaign. I was enamored by his intelligence and the beautiful ways he wrote and spoke about race. But I was also thrilled (naively) that Obama seemed to get his money from small donors, and that he might break Wall Street’s stranglehold on the Democrats.

I wanted Obama to turn his back on Bill Clinton’s disastrous deregulatory economic policies (that balanced budgets on the backs of the poor) and Hillary Clinton’s debts to finance. But, once in office, Obama offered no break from Clintonism: it was Clinton 2.0, with the veneer of hope that he’d be better on race.
