Is de Blasio Pushing Clinton to the Left?

Dan Balz: "The former president was clearly mindful that the Democratic Party of 2014 and of Barack Obama is not quite the same as the one he led in the 1990s -- and that one potential obstacle in the path of Hillary Clinton's possible presidential ambitions is a primary challenge from the left. His embrace of de Blasio's message was a deliberate step in the positioning of the Clintons as they look to a possible campaign."

Meanwhile, TPM notes Obama adviser David Axelrod suggested " that Clinton's participation in the inauguration ceremony may provide reassurances to the left ahead of the 2016 presidential race and 'signal to elite' that de Blasio's 'agenda is not 'radical.'"
