Today we introduce a new feature at S&R. In The Daily Brushback we’ll pose a question to a person famous or infamous that we wish someone in the mainstream media actually had the cojones to ask. We don’t expect answers, of course, but that’s never a reason not to ask. And since we have no “access” to risk losing, we can be honest, penetrating, rude, and even funny. The Daily Brushback won’t, despite its name, appear daily, but we call it that because it sounds better than The Periodic Brushback or The Occasional Brushback.
The inaugural question is for Democratic presidential frontrunner Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY).
Sen. Clinton, we’d like to ask you to speculate a little bit. How do you believe you’d have formed critical opinions about policy goals and strategies had you lived in an era before opinion polls were invented?
