Simon Radford — Hillary is running a Remain campaign. She needs to change track – or she’ll lose.

American voters, like many who opted for Leave in the UK's EU referendum, are angry and want change. The Democrats will lose if they offer a message of continuity.
The Democratic Party is apparently tone deaf. 

I have seen some recommending that Hillary with to a more populist message. The problem for Hillary is that she cannot credibly pivot at this point. Her record is too long and too consistent as a neoliberal and liberal interventionist.

The Force is not with her.

If Hilary changes track it will be in word only. She is a neo-liberal because the bankers pay her way.

Hillary could promote genuine reform wrt to fiat and credit creation which should not be a Left vs Right issue but one of ethics and morality.

Who'll disagree but the usual suspects? And for the lamest reasons?

Those who benefit from the status quo *could* decide to implement reforms, but they tend not to. Seems to be a recurring theme throughout history.
