Background: How De-Regulation Led To The Financial Crisis of 2008 & Why All Banks Need To Come With A Disclaimer Till The Glass-Steagal Act Is Re-Implemented
Salon: The case against Hillary Clinton: This is the disaster Democrats must avoid She's not the candidate of economic fairness, peace or a genuine progressive agenda. She's also not more electable
Note 1: These sorts of policies that help the few at the cost of the many are supported by the anti-Constitutionalists run by the Koch Brothers. Frankly, if you want to win over Democrats you can't be pro-Koch in any way. Being anti-Koch, given Hillary's recent pro-Keystone pipeline stance (a Koch project) may be an election winning strategy in and of itself.
Note 2: The Glass Steagall Act follows a way of governing that doesn't follow the gold standard of public policy making i.e. it doesn't provide for the General Welfare as per Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution. It does provide for corporate welfare by making financial backup (in the form of bailouts or weird ass loans) a part of the status quo indefinitely. In pursuing the repeal of this time tested act, Bill Clinton had to believe the rantings of a guy following "economic advice" from a defunct fiction writer and then defend them which should make for good attacks. What Bill Clinton did with his Glass Stegal Act deflection was what Republicans do all the time when debunking claims about the Koch Brothers i.e. they say 'there is no 100 billion in profit to be made by Koch Brothers' (it's actually less) or when people found out Koch Industries was the largest land holder in the Koch Pipeline, after Kochs had time to move assets around, they can come back and said 'No, they don't have the largest investment in keystone lands' (its actually like second or third largest but it wasn't in 2014). What Bill Clinton did was say that SPECIFICALLY that act can't be linked to s SPECIFIC crisis point. The fact that his whole administration was pushing deregulation was not a talking point. A more appropriate question for Bill Clinton would be "Did your administration's deregulation of the financial industry, as per Alan Greenspan's recommendation, open up the way for it's misuse (as explained in this ancient cartoon) and thus the financial crises of 2008?' (probably leave out the cartoon part or he'll claim ignorance).
