Elizabeth Warren has cemented herself as the most powerful woman in the Democratic Party after forcing a “non-resident scholar” at the left-leaning Brookings Institution to resign in disgrace.
Hillary Clinton has a problem. She is seeking the presidential nomination of a party that, at least superficially, doesn’t think very highly of Wall Street. Her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders, for example, is a principled liberal who voted against the controversial TARP bailout in 2008 (which Hillary supported), and supports legislation to break up big banks. Hillary, however, believes Wall Street is actually pretty good, especially when it comes to funding her political campaigns, paying her lots of money to give speeches, and donating to the Clinton Foundation.
