Response to Purveyor (Original post)

5. I think it's even worse than that

I see very few substantive shifts from Hillary, they're shifts in how she markets herself. Granted, they are presented as policy positions, but they are more accurately campaign positions. The policies that actually get fought for after election will only coincidentally, if at all, resemble those of her campaign. I'm not picking on Hillary here, I'd say the same, though to a lessor degree, about Obama.

Hillary is, at her core, a multinational corporatist. She cares about the interests of the global movers and shakers, and IMO not in proportion to how well they advocate for the least of us, but in proportion to how much global power and influence they have.

In, this, I've always felt her core is very solid. She can't campaign on it and expect to win, so the front-end campaign stuff makes it look like there is no real Hillary, but there very much is a real Hillary, and IMO it has more in common with a Rupert Murdoch or a Henry Kissinger than it does with a Bernie Sanders or the homeless guy down the street.
