FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMED: “Bill Clinton is finding that crafting a Sister Souljah moment in 2016 isn’t as easy as it was back in 1992.”

In 1992, Clinton understood that he and his party had to woo white, middle class voters by at least appearing sane and centrist and not just the latest crop of McGovern retreads, hence the Sister Souljah moment and his use of Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow” to signal that he wasn’t trapped in the Mobius Loop of his party’s far left radical past. Obama has moved the base so far to the racialist left, Bill is now seen as an unwelcome reminder of its dalliance with centrism in the 1990s.

Or as John Schindler of the New York Observer tweeted last night, “A generation ago, Bill Clinton + DLC got the Democrats off their own brand of crazy. Obama brought them right back.”
