Newsweek’s Jonathan Darman must set a very high bar for what he deems radical.
In the September 17 issue of Newsweek, Darman’s story, “How She Would Govern,” tried to give readers a glimpse of a Hillary Clinton presidency. The story compared the Hillary of old with the Hillary running for the Democratic nomination and used her health care plan as an example.
Although the plan has yet to be unveiled, Newsweek apparently already has an idea of what it will entail. “Her health-care plan, which will be announced in the coming weeks, is expected to be bold, but hardly radical,” wrote Darman.
But, if Hillary Clinton’s own Web site is an indication of what’s to come, it’s obvious achieving the label of “radical” would be quite a feat at Newsweek.
“So, we don’t only need candidates to talk about it,”
But expanding a very expensive government entitlement by taking more from personal income isn’t radical to Newsweek. It would certainly be frightening to imagine what is.
