Hillary, of course, is the prohibitive favorite for the nomination. The money and machinery awaits her announcement. But her long experience makes it less likely that she will lay out a bold new direction and demand a mandate for change. Our campaigns don’t feature issue debates. But win or lose, a strong populist run would strengthen the rising movement on the left of the Democratic Party. Their arguments would reach citizens who are struggling to make sense out of a world that seems out of kilter, and a politics that seems more and more dominated by big money and entrenched interests. There is a fertile ground that needs tilling. A primary challenge won’t on its own build a movement, but it can surely help fertilize one.
