MSNBC’s Matthews Compares Hillary Clinton To Sharpton, Himself

Hillary Clinton may have a “narrower path to the presidency,” according to a recent New York Times article.

Apparently, some Centrist Democrats worry that she is giving up on the “white working-class voters” who helped deliver her husband the presidency in 1992 (admittedly 23 years ago).

However MSNBC’s Chris Matthews appears to like what he’s hearing about Hillary Clinton’s ideas.  He seems to believe that Hillary is moving left.

“There will be no center course for her as there was for Bill Clinton in the 1990s,” Matthews said at the beginning of his show, “no Democratic Leadership Council, no ‘third way,’” stated Matthews.

“Already she has steered left on immigration and gay marriage and attacked Republicans on voting rights and promises to be equally tough on other ideological matters,” said Chris Matthews. He suggested that Clinton may be taking this positions to “ward off challengers,” and that it might be working, according to Mediaite.

“If you look at her as she is on issues on blacks and how they’re treated by police, she could be Al Sharpton, she’s just as tough laying it out like that,” Matthews said. “On immigration, as tough as any immigration lawyer fighting for the rights of Hispanics. On voting rights, she sounds like me.”
