The Clintons have been friends with Wall Street for ages, and the Clintons are now tapping that source of funds to finance Hillary's campaign as well as fatten the Clinton nest egg. The Wall Streeters are motivated by the need to insure their own protection as a wave of populism takes over the Democrat base.
To this group of Democrat voters, corporations, businesses and bosses are selfish meanies who are too stingy to share the wealth with the workers who made them what they are. Obama and Elizabeth Warren know this voting bloc well, and they're good at telling them what they want to hear.
This brings us to Charles Gasparino's article, The new new Democrats — Hillary fans beware. He describes those new new Democrats as follows:
For these Dems, the fulcrum isn’t the “radical middle” successfully sought out by Hillary’s husband, President Bill Clinton, in the 1990s, but an array of radical interest groups, public-employee unions, environmentalists and other assorted dingbats, joined in support of extremist policies and politics.
The details of their credo are as stupid as Hillary’s comment: Small businesses can easily pay for big hikes in the minimum wage; large corporations are keeping money and hiring overseas because they’re simply unpatriotic (it has nothing to do with high US corporate taxes); ObamaCare is working great.
The Wall Street fat cats think they're buying exemptions with their donations and speaking fees. But Gasparino cautions them to beware. Hillary will have issued a lot of IOUs to extremist groups before it's all over. And the Obama/Warren school of economic thought will be hard for Hillary to counter should she become president.
