When I watched President Obama get his clock cleaned by Mitt Romney in the first 2012 presidential debate, one suspicion was foremost in my mind: this is a man who hasn't been seriously challenged in a long time.

I wonder if something similar has happened to Hillary Clinton since she left government in 2012. The 2016 campaign has barely started, and she's already been caught wrong-footed several times. Clinton is going to have to alter her tactics if she wants the upcoming election to be anything but an endless slog of attacks from the right-wing and mainstream press. One thing she could do is make her peace with the left.
