I am mostly concerned about self-dealing and self enrichment when it is not adequately compensated by actions in the public interest. The Clinton's endorsement of Reagan's framing of welfare and their uncritical embrace of neo-liberal trade policies are just two examples of the damage they have done. That is inadequately compensated by their advocacy of social isues such as defense of abortion, gay marriage and non-economic amelioration of the wrongs done to various minority groups. If the economic and systemic problems with the role of money are not effectively addressed all of those gains likely, eventually will be lost anyway.  

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere." (But it helps!)
