What's important is to get a Blue Senate that isn't motivated by fear of rich corporate donors.

President Hillary can want a lot of things. It's Congress that makes those things happen. If we get another Senate like Obama had going in (Philosophically Democratic, but actionably the enablers of the corporate status quo when it mattered) it won't matter what the President wants done.
When she's elected, she needs to spend the first 2 years dropping a massively big hammer on the idiot Republicans and their Democratic 'friends' so she can get a True Blue House elected. I think it's the only way anything useful is going to get done her first term.
I'm optomistic, but I'm also a dirty realist.
