Ms. Hillary’s stump speech includes a paean to those working the day shift, the night shift, and the late shift. She is running an ad in Ohio called “Night shift.” She has not yet spoken up for the shifty and the shiftless, but she has chalked up many of them as campaign contributors.
In Bleak House Charles Dickens recognized the phenomenon of “telescopic” or distant philanthrophy practiced by those who neglect the needs of those in their immediate vicinity. Today’s New York Times regional section includes a story by Michael Luo on the small vendors squeezed by the Clinton campaign, one of whom is the proprietor of Sale & Pepe Fine Foods of lower Manhattan (photo above). NRO flags the story in its Web briefing today under the heading “It’s tough to live in the Clinton village.”
