Jonah Goldberg: Clinton can’t profit from populist wave


… Wall Street is a useful scapegoat. And the Clintons, both darlings of Wall Street who have enriched themselves by exploiting their connections to it, are badly positioned to withstand, never mind exploit, the populist tide. That’s why Hillary Clinton can’t put Bernie Sanders away. That’s why Bill is turning up the heat on the “awful legacy” of the last eight years. And that’s another reason Hillary will have a harder time in the fall than people think. More.

Reality check: We wondered why the Clintons would be dissing the first (actually) black president. Guess they need a lot of smoke and noise to obscure the fact that most people don’t identify with millionaires whose biggest problem is that they aren’t billionaires.

But nothing has stopped them so far.
