Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A lot of the commentators here are noting that, yes, Trump could win, or at least that it could be very tight.  And of course that is very true.  However I also believe it to be equally likely that Hillary could win in a landslide, and then your theory that she is really a neo-con in liberal clothing would be put to the test.

Obama, at least, put a lot of effort into passing Obama care, which, while it isn't single payer, has at least reduced the uninsured population by a good deal while keeping health care costs down.

It is difficult to divine from her campaign what her real legislative priorities would be, and how much political capital she would be prepared to spend to achieve them.  Running an anybody but Trump campaign may be sufficient to win, but doesn't really provide a mandate for a dramatic change of direction of US policy.

So what does she really want to achieve in office besides running the show more competently and sanely that Trump would?. Electoral reform?  Trade deals? Health care reform?  Education and student loan reform?

We could do with a diary on her policy priorities.  Are you up for the job?
