These comments are a bombshell. It’s a message to Hillary from the Democrats that they want Clinton to get lost. She is a drag on the party and a distraction. It’s also the truth: she lost to Trump because of her lousy campaign:

People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.” Schumer’s comments—referring to Clinton blaming Russian meddling and the former FBI director for her loss to Trump—come as Democrats are trying to re-brand ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

“We want equitable public education, we want meaningful inclusion, we want more time to teach and less time testing, we want the kind of school funding that invests in the schools our students deserve, and we want the right for all workers to organize and belong to a union,” said Mary Catherine Ricker, executive vice president of the American Federation of Teachers.

About a dozen other sister marches for public education were scheduled to be taking place at the same time in cities including Austin, Texas; Detroit; and Miami.
