SHE'S THE REPUBLICAN IN THE RACE:

Why Some of the Smartest Progressives I Know Will Vote for Trump over Hillary (YVES SMITH June 01, 2016, Politico)

To be sure, not all of my Sanders-supporting readers would vote for Trump. But only a minority would ever vote for Clinton, and I'd guess that a lot of them would just stay home if she were the nominee. Many of my readers tend to be very progressive, and they have been driven even further in that direction by their sophisticated understanding of the inequities of Wall Street, especially in the run-up to and the aftermath of the financial crisis, when no senior executives went to jail, the biggest banks got bigger, and Hillary paid homage to Goldman Sachs. True progressives, as opposed to the Vichy Left, recognize that the Clintons only helped these inequities along. They recognize that, both in the 1990s and now, the Clintons do not and have never represented them.

The Clintons are Third Way; Trump is Second.  Opponents of neo-liberalism should vote for him.
