Editor’s Note: Why does anyone think this woman is anything but a corporatist? Because she’s a Democrat? Like that matters. She’s for everything from NAFTA to GMO to Walmart to Goldman Sachs to pretty much anything that will keep the gears of the oligarchy grinding away.
The fact that people would vote for her for president basically just because she’s a woman, ignoring four decades of corruption that trail behind her is nothing short of astonishing. Look how much scandal she’s already faced in the last 40 years… and someone thinks it’s a good idea for her to become president?

With the cost of a 2016 presidential campaign expected to reach more than $1 billion, a candidate will need some rich friends. Fortunately for Hillary Clinton, she has plenty of those on Wall Street.
Nomi Prins, a former Wall Street executive and now senior fellow at the nonpartisan public policy institute Demos, writes that Clinton should be able to count on help from large financial institutions. Prins is the author of All the Presidents’ Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power.
Clinton has spent decades, both in her own career and as First Lady during Bill Clinton’s presidency, forging strong relationships with financial industry executives. She has maintained these ties despite recent efforts to portray herself as a populist candidate.
Of the six most generous donors to her political career, four are Wall Street firms: Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase and Morgan Stanley. A fifth is DLA Piper, a law firm that represents big banks.
“Though she may, in the heat of that campaign, raise the bad apples or bad situation explanation for Wall Street’s role in the financial crisis of 2007-2008, rest assured that she will not point fingers at her friends,” Prins wrote at TomDispatch.com. “She will not chastise the people that pay her hundreds of thousands of dollars a pop to speak or the ones that have long shared the social circles in which she and her husband move.”
