I am not asking this to make Hillary look bad, what I’m asking is lets say Hillary wins in 2016 and she is still angry that progressives supported Obama over her in 2008 and they supported Sanders over her in 2016.
Is there any risk she might be bitter about that and as a result not be as interested in progressive legislation? Or could block legislation progressives like out of spite?
Lieberman, after winning against progressives who didn’t vote for him in the 2006 primaries, opposed a medicare buy in at 55. This was presented in the progressive media as a ‘fuck you’ to the people who tried to deny him a senate seat. I don’t know if that was his real motivation, but that is what it was presented as. Lieberman supported a medicare buy in option in 2000 when he was a VP, then opposed it after progressives primaried him from the left for his senate seat and he won as an independent.
If Hillary wins, could she have resentment towards progressives who opposed her running in 2008 and 2016, and could she abandon some progressive goals just because she is upset with them?
