When not bashing Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton’s team has been trying to mend fences this week with Bernie Sanders’ backers. Team Clinton played up the progressive record of Clinton running-mate Tim Kaine and helped usher out Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz as Democratic Party chairwoman.
But in many ways, these actions are just window dressing. The real effort to make nice with the Sanders camp has been taking place over recent weeks as Clinton has adopted many of his policies, particularly on trade and energy, as her own. Nowhere is that clearer than in her plan to help people pay for college.
