I don't agree at all with your characterization of her persuasion as "strong". When I hear her speak, it's patently obvious that she didn't graduate with a degree in economics from Boston University because she understood anything about it, graduating cum laude notwithstanding. She is extremely stupid with respect to what will and will not work economically. She has more in common with a Lenin or a Trotsky than she does with any red blooded American, and the real persuasion has already been done by tens of thousands of anti-American left-wing professors and student committees (advised by those same professors) turning normal kids into pseudo-intellectual "revolutionaries" and filling their heads with socialist claptrap. She's nothing more than an apparatchik with a megaphone.
Like all American socialists (similar to the Russian fools of long ago), she would coast along on the economic inertia of this great country until it all collapsed under the weight of her absurd ideas and ruinous policies. One of the problems with folks like her is they don't tend to outlive the "revolution" so they can be properly chastised or even punished for their idiotic, disastrous and ultimately evil lust for creating thoughtless, soulless human hives. Her kind always end up getting away with brutalizing people to prove that their ideas are correct. If socialism could be brought to justice quicker, then we would have seen the Russians hang Lenin or Stalin for all the evil they perpetrated, and socialism might have died the ignominious death it deserves. But it's like the frog in the pot of water brought slowly to a boil: the frog doesn't realize it's doomed until it's too late.
