According to a lead story in today’s New York Times, the Clinton campaign is “concerned that her ‘rational message,’ in the words of an aide, is not a fit with a restless Democratic primary electorate. Allies and advisers of the Clintons say Mr. Sanders is clearly connecting with voters through his emotional, inspiring rallying cry that the American economic and political systems are rigged for the wealthy and powerful.”
In a nutshell, that’s the problem with the Clinton campaign so far. It doesn’t seem to believe that explaining how the American economic and political systems are rigged for the wealthy and powerful – and coming up with solutions for that imbalance – constitutes a rational message. But at this point in American history it’s the most rational message a candidate can provide.
