A good stolen quote

Rebecca Traister, in Salon, expresses my reservations about Hillary Clinton (and the necessary parenthetical qualification of those reservations):
I have wished that I could get behind Clinton, a woman I admired when she first arrived in the White House 15 years ago. But there has been nothing in her steady, ineluctable move to the center that I could embrace; I understood why she did it, but it cost her my support. (I'm sure that Clinton would not have considered this a worrisome loss until, perhaps, this week; my support has not historically been a leading indicator of presidential success.)
