ヒラリーのライバルは誰?

 


今週のNew Yorkerは民主党上院議員のElizabeth Warrenを取り上げていました。クリントンとの関係をもっと掘り下げてもらえると思ったのですが、彼女の業績を振り返っただけのものでちょっと肩透かしです。

The Virtual Candidate
Elizabeth Warren isn’t running, but she’s Hillary Clinton’s biggest Democratic threat.

Clinton has taken notice. Last December, she invited Warren to a private meeting at her Washington home, near Embassy Row, to hear Warren’s advice on issues such as income inequality. In recent months, members of Clinton’s policy team have consulted with Dan Geldon, one of Warren’s closest advisers, about economic policy. And a few days after Clinton’s official announcement, on April 12th, that she is running for President, she wrote a paean to Warren in Time, saying that Warren “never hesitates to hold powerful people’s feet to the fire: bankers, lobbyists, senior government officials and, yes, even presidential aspirants.”

Clinton even sounds like Warren these days, evidently hoping to fend off charges that she is a captive of Wall Street money and influence. In the video in which Clinton announced her candidacy, she says, “The deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top.” Two days later, during a stop in Iowa, she noted, “Hedge-fund managers pay lower taxes than nurses or the truckers I saw on I-80, when I was driving here over the last two days.” And in a fund-raising e-mail she wrote, “The average CEO makes 300 times what the average worker makes.”


上記の部分でも書いてありますが、ヒラリーの出馬宣言は明らかにリベラル側を意識した作りになっていましたね。それにTIMEでWarrenに推薦文を書いたのはヒラリーです。

ピケティ教授のフランス語なまりがきついのですが、昨年の動画がありました。これで彼女の立場が大体わかるのではないでしょうか。



Lessig教授もWarrenに大統領出馬をするようにスピーチしているのですね。



大統領選はどのように転ぶのか今からはなんとも言えないので、もしかしたらもあるかもしれません。
