The progressive case for Clinton

Hartmann interviews Rep. Raul Grijalva, co-chair of the Progressive Caucus. He said what progressives want in their candidate is balance, steadiness, fortitude, capacity, competence (1:50), things Clinton amply displays. Yes, Clinton has flaws, but what will further progressive values and policies most effectively? Will not Clinton respond much more to our progressive pressure than the alternative? The she already has via the Party Platform due to the Sanders movement is a good indication. That certainly won’t be the case with a Trump Presidency, which is what we’re going to get with a protest 3rd-party vote. To the contrary, that will without question set back progressive policies for some time to come and millions will suffer the horrific consequences. Is that result worth your smug, privileged protest?
