I assure you she's not serious.

The left has gotten a little fussy as of late, having recognized Hillary's "move" to the center:
Hillary Clinton has drawn a sharp rebuke from the left after giving a speech urging Democratic Party solidarity - a move seen by many as a sell-out of the party's liberal wing.

Democratic agent Harold Ickes has had to rush out to assure the left that she really doesn't mean it:
But supporters dismiss such criticism, saying her relationship with the DLC should not concern Democratic activists on the left. They say those on the far left should pay more attention to her voting record, which has earned her a near-perfect 95 percent approval score from the liberal Americans for Democratic Action.

"It's much more important to look at what she does and how she votes, and not that she has associated herself with the DLC," said Harold Ickes, who was deputy chief of staff in the Clinton White House and is now one of Mrs. Clinton's top campaign advisers.
