   Hillary Clinton, The Council on Foreign Relations and The Establishment  :  Information Clearing House - ICH

   Hillary Clinton, The Council on Foreign Relations and The Establishment  :  Information Clearing House - ICH | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Clinton, in a desperate piece of deflection, resorted to playing the gender card: "Senator Sanders is the only person who I think would characterize me, a woman running to be the first woman president, as exemplifying the establishment." This fatuous identity politics is meant to distract from her decades-long tenure at the top of the political system and collusion with those who exercise control over it. Of course, as Bernie points out, Hillary most represents and enjoys the support of the Democratic faction of the political establishment. - See more at: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article44306.htm#sthash.ZpcJe6BS.dpuf
