Lila Garret: Not only is Hillary Clinton not the progressive she claims to be. She has consistently supported the agenda of corporations’ overruling government decisions: Witness her strong previous support of the TPP, Trans Pacific Partnership, which gives corporations exactly that power.
Mark Naison: As I look at the American social and economic landscape today—with its huge concentration of wealth at the top, its swollen prison population and its shrinking middle class—I cannot help but see the influence of Bill Clinton.
Jack Rothman: Hillary Clinton indicated her strong support for the New Enriched Math Program of the Democratic Party, by which Bernie Sanders loses delegates with each of his primary victories.

Brent Budowsky: If Trump tied the GOP in knots by prolonging the Republican nominating process, and prolonged the process of Republicans attacking Republicans, that would be a huge benefit for Hillary Clinton. Check that box.

Rudy Acuña: In the case of NAFTA, the Zapatistas were right and the lambs were wrong. History will judge their silence. The mea culpas of the Bill Clinton as well as the remorse of the Robert McNamara after the Vietnam War will ring hollow.
