But as Clinton argued: can we trust Trump with the US nuclear codes? Can we trust him as ‘commander in Chief’ of the world’s pre-eminent super-power?. (though progressively under challenge from a rising China ; and from an emboldened bloc or ‘strategic partnership’ centred on Russia and Iran) And can we really trust him to enforce nuclear non—proliferation?
Clinton’s choice of Tim Kaine as Vice-Presidential running mate was also suggestive that Clinton was intending to appeal to the ‘policy Centre’ more so than the ‘unambiguous Left’. Again: with two months to go, though, there is still the potential prospect of more progressive policy announcements. The Sanders campaign mobilised millions: especially amongst the young. Clinton would be well advised to go further in remobilising those people.
