Samantha Power Says Hillary is a monster

Which I only bring up to mention again how hot I think Samantha Power is. But, as long as we're jawboning about horse race Democratic politics, Joshua Micah Marshall mentions something that's been befuddling me. Hillary Clinton is claiming crisis -- geopolitical crisis -- leadership experience. She's been claiming all sorts of experience. And Barack Obama's been letting people think he's more progressive.

So, we have the experienced candidate against the progressive candidate. But, I don't see the support for either claim.

What in tarnation do political reporters do? "Oh, candidate X says he's a purple turtle dove, he must be a purple turtle dove." Don't the editors look at Google News and start to understand that if they don't start adding value that they'll be replaced by machines?
