If you can't beat 'em, join 'em? Hillary Clinton tried to connect with the American people by downing shots of Crown Royal in Pennsylvania blue-collar barrooms, and she was defeated by a snotty man who shunned the residents of said state due to their frighteningly unenlightened propensity for clinging to "guns and religion".
So what to do? Join the winning team, stick your nose up in the air, and declare your elitism by equating capitalism with greed, and stating loud and proud that only the government can really run things right, assuming he's the one (or his elite bretheren) running the government:
"We have known now for 100 years now...capitalism has a tendency to self-destruct … once you get so much growth going that people get greedy.”
"The health care reform bill is not perfect...but you are never going to get hold of this until you cover everybody..."
So health care reform as the first step to socialism? Oh, Bill, from feeling our pain to delivering it....
