    What does "well-shopped prescriptions" mean in the following article?

    Would her [Hillary Clinton's] campaign focus, as all Clinton campaigns have, on the middleclass? If so, would she have fresh ideas, or would she mostly just offer a lengthy list of well-shopped prescriptions?

    It means that they're not fresh ideas, but ones that have been used before.
