After Obama, nobody stirs up the liberal base better than Hillary Clinton. Why? Because she's a woman.
You have no idea what the term means. Hillary a liberal? Right. Like Bubba? The guy who took down Glass/Steagle, dismantled the welfare system and pretty much single-handedly deflated the unions with NAFTA? Liberal?

If the political landscape now matched that of the 70s, the Clintons would be pure Nixonians. The Right in America has gone so far Right that the political scale is tilted beyond absurdity. There are so few liberals around now, it's hard to gauge. Use Bernie Sanders as your litmus test for what a liberal is, not Clinton. How many times has Bernie agreed with Clinton? About 5% of the time? Maybe.
