The New Yorker claims that Hillary Clinton “romneyed” Trump by her smart debate strategy. When George W. Bush and Mitt Romney ran on their business records, the proposition was that business provided a theory of how the world worked and how executives ought to behave. By attacking Trump’s business and economic plan, Hillary successfully persuaded at least most audience that Trump focuses on capital accumulation rather than capitalism, and he has nothing to do with the “public good”. One gift of this debate to Clinton’s party is that he now looks like a much more familiar target: a rich guy who is out for himself.
