It’s not even Election Day and already the left wing of the Democratic Party that Hillary Clinton has been courting and using to her advantage on the campaign trail is beginning to map its payback agenda.

Yes, when our own U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren warms up the crowd with her “nasty woman” mantra and thrashes Donald Trump, that comes at a premium.

So too for U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, who in an op-ed in The Boston Globe last Friday dissed “the top 1 percent,” “corporate media” (sounding remarkably Trump-like), and warned, “We need a secretary of Treasury who is prepared to take on the greed and illegal behavior of Wall Street, not someone who comes from Wall Street or will leave office to go to Wall Street.”

There is already talk of a “blacklist” being prepared by the party’s progressives. Warren, who recently demanded the head of SEC Chair Mary Jo White, is surely not going to approve of her remaining in the post under a possible Clinton administration.

Yes, Clinton made a lot of deals with a lot of devils along the way. And political payback, it can be a real . . . well, you know.
