Clinton 2.0?

Madam Clinton, should she survive legal challenges, will be a formidable candidate in the general election. She will have the full weight of the broadcast media behind her (apart from talk radio), as well as most of print and cable.

Furthermore, since she is a classical corporatist, she will have most of Wall Street and most of the professional bureaucrats in government behind her.

Food for thought...

Topics: 

When even our Presidential contests become absorbed into the entertainment culture, and people focus on the tabloid (which we cynically refer to as a "circus") rather than trying to determine the common good; when people's votes are purchased by pecuniary interest rather than principle (and even our term for money is "bread"); then we have returned to the politics of the Roman Empire.
