21. Yes. She is flawed. Doesn't mean she's a bad person... in fact....
She's beautiful, she's brilliant, she's funny, I wish I had 1 iota of her charm. The woman is everything every intelligent woman wants to be. However, she has had epithets hurled at her for decades by the right wing. The GOP will wipe their hands on her if she is the Dem candidate. The GOP won't even have to dig up swiftboat lying shitheads in her case. The epithets are ALREADY THERE for their use, the entire nation has heard them and seen her dragged through the coals!

Are we angry that the Repukes did this to her? YES. But angry or not, she cannot run and win. She's a handicapped candidate. It would be like having an Olympic ski champion skier become an amputee in a car accident, but insisting on having him compete in the Olympics anyway because we STILL love him so much.

And once again, how many times do I need to say it? We live in a highly sexist and racist country. This country is NOT egalitarian. Maybe one day when we're all dead it will be. NOT NOW. Women here are STILL struggling to get paid an equal wage. The last studies show that women are making 1/3 to 1/2 less than a man of the same qualifications in the same job. The media portrays us as prostitutes with balloons in our chest. And somebody thinks this country is going to elect a woman for PRESIDENT?

I don't think the poor, the children, the old, the disabled, the uneducated, the minorities can STAND ONE MORE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENCY. I swear to God I don't think this country can handle it. IT CANNOT.

I don't even know how else to pray that the Dems will be illuminated somehow and pick a candidate that is not a complete disaster, a candidate that will get the MAJORITY of votes, a candidate that does not have albatrosses around her/his neck, a candidate that does not have drawbacks. I'm very desperate, afraid and depressed all at the same time that we Dems are going to once again FUCK IT UP.
