Should Americans have the opportunity to succeed?

Cal Thomas says, in his latest article, that that's socialism.
Clinton said she prefers a "we're all in it together" society: "I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none."

Doesn't such a society already exist elsewhere? It's called socialism, where government has sought to make all things economically equal and the only equality is that all are equally poor.
Now in fairness, Thomas distorts Clintons words from being a call for equal opportunity to a call for equal results. So perhaps he's not opposed to letting Americans have a relatively equal chance at succeeding.
