I am a Bernie Sanders supporter, and remain so. That having been said, unlike many, as someone who has spent the last few years making the effort to reform politics in states near me, I have very little but praise for the efforts of Hillary Clinton’s campaign and their work to make a change in many of the issues I care deeply about.
Despite the ongoing sux-rox campaigns that go on here at Daily Kos, I figured that I would finally bite the bullet and write a diary that says a bit of what I think: Hillary Clinton’s pragmatic but dogged campaign has done something I didn’t expect at any point a year ago: her campaign is putting in the very difficult work of putting together resources and backbones for much smaller candidates, and urging state parties and state leadership to act in bold, aggressive ways.
More importantly, her campaign’s efforts to instill real, tangible progress on issues that surround it go beyond political expediency and reflect a campaign that has made more than a small effort to leave behind communities, states, and office holders around them better off then when they arrived. I wanted to take a bit today to tell that story; of pragmaticism, the future of state level progressive politics, and her campaign.
