Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I suspect that blindness may be a better explanation. People, including smart people, tend not to see what they do not understand - unless they are specifically looking for such a thing as a scientist might. People also tend not to see that which conflicts with their sense of self worth, and the Clintons and like minded Democrats had spent a political lifetime figuring out how to get money from Wall Street so they could compete politically. It is naturally difficult for them to see, and harder still to acknowledge, the damage their policies have done to large numbers of US Citizens. It is easier just to write them off as 'just' this, that or the other adverse label.
