Clinton, here's a campaign theme for you

From the "we're too complex for you to understand" file, the Hillary Clinton camp is searching for their catch phrase or slogan.  Isn't that confidence inspiring? They need to dumb it down for you. Alas, they can't.
At Hillary Clinton’s campaign headquarters in Brooklyn, staffers are invited to complete a phrase that is written on a wall: “Hillary for ...”

Beside it, staffers have plastered dozens of sticky notes with various words and phrases.

While the wall could be seen as a freewheeling experiment in the manner of a tech startup, it could also be regarded as symptomatic of a nagging problem for Clinton in the 2016 race: namely, the difficulty she has had in explaining why she’s running for president. “The wall of stickies makes me nervous, because she should be for one vision for America and then maybe she achieves that vision with a bunch of policies,” said Democratic strategist Jamal Simmons. “I’m probably for most of the things on the stickies, but voters will have a tough time digesting a campaign with about a hundred policies.”
If I may be so bold as to suggest a singular slogan, I offer this, which seems to be their mantra anyway:

It is not truth that matters, but victory.

To be honest, it's not mine, it's Hitler's. But if the jackboot fits....
