This post is in bad faith. In bad faith because I saw it today at the High Line, a place saturated by wealth; and because I’m posting it here at a page whose political proclivities (my own) are decidedly bourgeois. I’m excited to vote for Clinton, but I want to read her candidacy around the cutting edge of Leonard’s statement. Leonard casts a powerful critical frame on our political culture. The large frame mural format up on the wall in bold, defiant black and white typeface draws the eye into the protest; the eye wanders from word and word in the spaces between. Re-reading Leonard’s text, I’m actually not sure that it does not describe some, even if only a little, of the candidate’s experience. I’ll leave it to you to draw the lines and to connect the dots.
