The author of the column does not realize that those of us “ready for Hillary” are not mindless supporters of the political class, but rather citizens simply excited to support the possible campaign of one of the most qualified and groundbreaking potential candidates this country has seen.

The writer suggested that Clinton’s budding candidacy says that there is no internal debate in the Democratic Party.
However, the absence of all out intraparty warfare — as seen in the Republican Party — does not mean that we in the Democratic Party are apathetic to the issues.
