I'd just call it empty – but in a way that invites the political definition to come: What does Clinton stand for?This slow-rolling, inductive start to Campaign 2016 isn't a bad thing, if it leads Clinton to make a searching examination of what policies the country needs to grow again, at home and abroad. It's fine if Clinton starts off fuzzy – so long as she gets to definition and a new synthesis.Though Clinton is often seen as a continuation of the political ethos of her husband Bill, the 42nd president, the truth is that the first Clinton era is over. One of the creative voices looking for new answers is, perhaps surprisingly, that old Clintonite, Larry Summers. Though he was the embodiment of the Democrats' centrist, Wall Street-leaning consensus during his years as Clinton 42's treasury secretary, and as Obama's first-term economic czar, Summers has been brooding in the last few years about what he calls "secular stagnation" in the U.S. economy.That's more empty space, waiting to be filled by candidate Clinton.
