Hillary's post constitutional presidency

Assuming that the idiots at Vox got their facts straight Hillary is is gearing up to be the first post constitutional president. It seems that what the crypto fascist in her party demand according to Jonathan Allen in his post, Hillary Clinton's sweeping executive power agenda is unprecedented. "The view from inside the campaign, said one official, is that it's important to be specific about how Clinton would use the unilateral powers of the presidency "because of the level of frustration" Democrats have felt when Obama's priorities have been blocked by Republicans in Congress. Even if Democrats are able to elect one of their own as president in 2016, he or she is all but assured of facing a Congress in which one or two of the chambers are controlled by Republicans."
Well certainly lowering the level of frustration among Democrats is a laudable goal but is this Evita Peron wannabe seriously considering running on abolishing the separation of powers? Yes, it would be called expanding Obama's legacy.
 "For Democrats, the continuing use of executive power to implement a left-of-center agenda is the logical extension of the legacy Obama's built."
In an earlier post Matt Yglesias made the compelling case that Hillary's complete lack of principles makes her uniquely fit to do the dirty work of crushing our cherished freedoms. "Committed Democrats and liberal-leaning interest groups are facing a reality in which any policy gains they achieve are going to come through the profligate use of executive authority, and Clinton is almost uniquely suited to deliver the goods. More than almost anyone else around, she knows where the levers of power lie, and she is comfortable pulling them, procedural niceties be damned."
