Most Of The “Most Valuable Progressives” Named By ‘The Nation’ Have Endorsed…Hillary?

If like me you’re a longtime and faithful reader of The Nation — a venerable publication celebrating its 150th anniversary — then you probably saw its recent cover editorial endorsing Bernie Sanders for president. That lengthy essay, along with many other Nation articles over the past several months, leaves the unmistakable impression that Sanders is the only truly progressive choice for Democratic voters.

Yet just a month ago, The Nation published its 2015 Progressive Honor Roll, an annual feature written by John Nichols, who happens to be a highly enthusiastic Sanders supporter — which named several strong supporters of Hillary Clinton among America’s “most valuable” progressives. In fact, of the individuals named on Nichols’ list, nearly every single one is backing Clinton (one exception is Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Matthews Burwell, “most valuable Cabinet member,” who must observe administration neutrality in the primary but — as a former top Clinton administration official — would very likely endorse her).

14. Yep. And the ONLY candidate running on our side who can actually put 'meat' behind her

policies and get those through. She knows how to navigate the pitfalls and procedural filibustering that Republicans are bound to use if they don't get one of their macho-men into the White House.

What I love about Hillary Clinton is, she takes no prisoners. She's a fighter and she's fearless, and that's what we need in order to strengthen and expand the good work President Obama has been able to get through.

9. They're either scared of the Clintons or they're oligarchs

Because no one would support Hillary because she's the best candidate out there; they have to be coerced
