Not Too Late

I'm sure I'll publish my tl;dr magnum opus about My Thoughts About Hillary Clinton Because My Thoughts Are Important at some point, but as for, "If we wanted somewhere better than Hillary to run, we should have organized to move the party to the left," well, it isn't really too late is it. Not that we're going have the Socialist Worker be required reading at the DNC anytime soon, but it isn't actually too late for an alternative candidate to make an appearance. It's only April, and I don't think it's really a problem for people to criticize Clinton in order to undermine her inevitability, because that shouldn't actually be inevitable.

Not that Erik is saying this, but it's a bit too early to be in ZOMG IF YOU CRITICIZE CLINTON RAND PAUL WILL BE PRESIDENT mode.
