Progressives are the real left politically. Neoliberals are leftist imposters who want to be copartners with conservatives but don’t want to publicly acknowledge it. In essence, the balance of power shifts from conservatism to neoliberalism without either acting on their mandates or consolidation of power. It is the aggregate membership of the “swamp”. Clinton is largely a neoliberal. Sanders is the most popular progressive. Progressives are outside looking in on both parties and waiting for an opportunity to fundamentally change the direction of the United States and I think they may get their chance next election cycle. At least how I term things. Professors of political science may vary.
    There's an article in The Atlantic that makes something like your point. They refer to Clinton representing "Trickle Down America".

    I am happy to see Pompeo out of the CIA, and Haspel in. I met her at a dinner a few months ago, and she was quite impressive, and well respected by the agency people in the room. I wouldn't take the top job if I were her though, it's a position that is clearly doomed from the start.
    Poking around for some information on Haspel and I must say her confirmation hearings as Director of the CIA May be a throw down. Apparently she has the stomach for gruesome torture and kahonas to destroy video tapes of the tortures. I expect Rand Paul to object to her appointment and McCain as well. “Quite impressive” indeed.
