"We’re at an inflection point. The constant chaos leaves us adrift. The incompetence makes us feel afraid. The callousness makes us feel alone. It’s a lot."
Well, the positive is that this is exactly the sort of bloviating nonsense we have endured from politicians for generations. It keeps looking like it is going to mean something, but then it doesn't. Fine American tradition there. So that's her tack, not the firebrand like Hillary. It conjures feelings. You feel anxious and we understand and will fix that. We will make the bad people go away. It could just as easily be said about Joe Biden, but she's trying to stake out that territory.
The negative is the same. "It's exactly the sort of bloviating nonsense..." and so forth.
Which former president or nominee could have said this previously? None, really. It's very 2020. Let's expand this to presidential primary candidates. Marianne Williamson, maybe. Anyone else? Eugene McCarthy? Bill Clinton could have used elements of this, but I think done better.
