  •  Former Pres Clinton is always present and a (13+ / 0-)

    keynote or featured speaker at the Peterson Institute's annual shindig.

    At least for the past several years, that I've seen clips of the videos.

    Heck, I posted one of him and Tom Brokaw here only weeks ago, talking about 'entitlement cuts.'

    In it, Clinton says the only thing that would give Dems pause would be if they [the Dems] were viewed unfavorably for cutting DEFENSE SPENDING!

    That's right--it would be their 'right flank' that would concern them.  Not a word about 'the left' or 'the base.'

    Some of the videos I'd have to search for.  That one, I can probably turn up in the next couple of days.

    Don't forget--Hillary was an active DLC member as a Senator, and Bill Clinton was President of the DLC from 1990-1991.

    As I recall, Hillary ran to Obama's 'right' on several issues, if you recall.
