"The deck is stacked" is the new "the system is rigged."
Just in case you didn't think Elizabeth Warren (and what she stands for) is on the minds of those in Clinton-world, check out this line from Hillary Clinton's just-happened announcement.
It's not quite "the system is rigged" — Warren's most well-known slogan — but the sentiment is almost identical, and there's no way it's a coincidence.
Of course, this kind of talk isn't completely new for Clinton, nor is it totally just a Warren thing. Former Maryland governor Martin O'Malley (D), whom we currently rate as the most likely Clinton opponent to give her a run for the nomination, has sounded a similar tone.
Again and again, the activists jumped to their feet, cheering on such promises as breaking up big banks, reining in Wall Street’s “reckless gambling” and addressing the country’s “gross concentrated wealth.”
They might have been listening to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), whose populist crusade on income equality, health care and Social Security have prompted legions of liberal Democrats to try to draft her into a bid for the presidency.
But the speaker was Martin O’Malley, the former Maryland governor who spent the weekend stumping across Iowa.
And this isn't just a one-off quote from a lengthy announcement video. Clinton speaks for about 30 seconds in the two-minute video (the rest is images of regular Americans), and this is the central theme of what she talks about.
