30. I agree that a Hillary presidency would be another giveaway to the 1%......

Yes Bill Clinton raised taxes which helped reduce the deficit but the real reason we had a surplus was the "dot com" bubble. I recall reading articles saying the traditional economic notions of boom and bust may be over because we were entering new and unchartered water.

But I'm not sure how effective any President can be in these times. Even if the Democrats controlled the House, Senate and held the White House, there are sufficient number of DINOs to block any real progress in addressing income inequality, etc.

So I prefer to leave Ms. Warren in the Senate to become known as the Lioness of the Senate who isn't afraid to take on monied interests. She is the Senate version of Representative Barney Frank.
