"Speaking at a rally in Pittsburgh on the weekend, Clinton said, “I’m not going to pretend that we can just snap our fingers and solve our problems… That doesn’t happen in the real world.”"
That's Hillary Clinton, confident of victory, starting to manage the expectations of her supporters, some of whom may have believed the liberal rhetoric she adopted to secure the Democratic Party nomination and win the support of former Sanders voters.
It's being reported that she is already contacting key Republicans to discuss how they will work together when she's in office. Cabinet posts and other positions in her administration are being discussed.
"Jeff Zeleny of CNN reported, “I’m told she’s been talking to Republican senators, old allies and new, saying that she is willing to work with them and govern.” Clinton has told these Republicans that she will be more approachable than Obama, Zeleny said, adding, “She will work with them. She wants to have an open-door policy.”"
Donald Trump meanwhile is saying Clinton's policies in Syria could start World War III. This is unfortunate. Military figures have already said as much in congressional hearings, but now that Trump is saying this it gives the media an excuse to ridicule the idea. Clinton as recently as the final debate reaffirmed her desire to establish a "no fly zone" over Syria, which is tantamount to war with nuclear armed Russia. The Guardian goes into this in depth today.
