You jumped to a strange conclusion. It's not that other Democratic leaders are cleaner or dirtier. The Clintons are simply an incredibly tough
political force to defeat.
They've won races for Arkansas' Attorney General, Arkansas Governor, the US Presidency, and the US Senate. The Clintons are notoriously shrewd and
crafty behind the scenes, and supposedly they never forgive political grudges. They have major connections to power in virtually every major country,
as well as in virtually every State and American field of business.
Most up & coming Democratic politicians simply aren't willing to risk their entire political futures to oppose them. Former Maryland Governor Martin
O'Malley also ran against Hillary during this primary season. And I was leaning towards him over Bernie. But Hillary's allies crushed him before he
even had a chance to get going. If neither a popular former Governor nor a sitting vice president can even get out of the gate against them, what
chance do most other Dems have?
Bernie only survived for so long because he aggressively courted the far left, which the Clintons and their "Third Way" allies actively dismiss.
Bernie got unprecedented grassroots support in return and yet it still wasn't enough. It will take a well organized progressive campaign with a
charismatic leader in order to pry Democratic Party leadership from their grip. And even then, it'll come with a hefty price that most politicians
aren't willing to pay.
