Quote of the Day

I owe almost my entire Wall Street career to the Clintons.
—Chris Arnade
Mr. Arnade continues, "I am not alone; most bankers owe their careers, and their wealth, to them. Over the last 25 years they – with the Clintons it is never just Bill or Hillary – implemented policies that placed Wall Street at the center of the Democratic economic agenda, turning it from a party against Wall Street to a party of Wall Street."

He goes on to explain that the history of the Clintons is that they are creatures of big finance, and he uses the 1995 bailout of Mexico, which was really a bailout of big finance.

If you like Rubinomics, and believe that an excessively financialized economy is the future of America, by all means, vote for her in the primary.

Me, I'm hoping that my vote matters when Maryland votes on 26 April.
