Readers, I had an extremely silly scheduling kerfuffle, and so today’s Water Cooler will be severely truncated.
However, I cannot forbear from posting this, which is a quote from Hillary Clinton at her Gloucestershire event in the UK (complete with black vans and everything), as linked to this morning:
“Everybody in politics wants a movement. And obviously I beat (Bernie) by 4 million votes.” – Hillary Rodham Clinton pic.twitter.com/23lgn7IoE6

Is Clinton really saying what I think she’s saying? That she wants to be at the head of a “movement”?
But then there’s this:

So Clinton won’t ever run again, but will be at the head of a movement? Grifters gotta grift, I know, but how does that work? At some point, the cameras are gonna pull back and show how small the crowds really are….
So talk amongst yourselves, and be excellent to each other!

Readers: The Naked Capitalism fundraiser is over, and let me express my personal thanks to all those who have helped keep Naked Capitalism getting better and better. Water Cooler, however, is a standalone entity not covered by the NC fundraiser. So do feel free to use the dropdown and click the hat to make a contribution today or any day. Here is why: Regular positive feedback both makes me feel good and lets me know I’m on the right track with coverage. When I get no donations for five or ten days I get worried. More tangibly, a constant trickle of small donations helps me with expenses, and I factor that trickle in when setting fundraising goals. So if you see something you especially appreciate, do feel free to click the hat!
