What You Didn’t Hear From Hillary Clinton Last Night



As the Democrats convened in Las Vegas last night, Hillary Clinton tried to outrun each of her fellow candidates in a sprint to the left. Unmentioned by Clinton were topics important to mainstream voters: veterans, border security, our national debt, and the ongoing struggle with ISIS.

Additionally, Clinton conveniently left out key topics of interest like the Clinton Foundation and the millions she raked in from paid speeches to special interest groups and public universities.

So desperate to avoid a repeat of her 2008 campaign disaster, Clinton is taking great pains to protect her left flank at the cost of any attempt to establish mainstream appeal. For that reason, so many of the important topics above went unaddressed.
