Hillary Clinton's highly anticipated policy speech this week has left media largely unimpressed and dissatisfied — especially the Washington Post's editorial board.
"There wasn't much new in Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton's first major domestic policy speech," the board wrote, "and we mean that in the nicest possible way."
The board noted that the former secretary of state called for faster economic growth, repeating phrases such as this is "the defining economic challenge of our time," but criticized her for bringing nothing new or specific to the table.
"On her most original point, that expanded profit-sharing could help align the interests of business and workers, she promised more details in a later speech," the board wrote.

She likely gave her supporters a general sense of where her economic agenda would head, but it was nevertheless painfully light on actual specific, it added.
"Ms. Clinton continued, maddeningly, to waffle on President Obama's trade agenda," the board added. "[S]he offered only a vague sentence or two about another defining challenge of our time: the sustainability of entitlements that are rapidly crowding out other areas of the federal budget, in both defense and non-defense spending."
"Mr. Obama has made minimal progress on this issue, despite his promises at the outset of his presidency not to 'kick the can down the road,'" they added.
Separately, in an MSNBC interview this week, Clinton's chief economic adviser, Gene Sperling, was also unable to nail down the specifics of her policy agenda. All he could do was promise that she would reveal more information in the new future.
