Poll question: Do you HATE Hillary Clinton?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

4. Absolutely not
I just don't want her for president. I admire her for a lot of things, but none of those things qualify her, in my mind, to be president.

6. I don't hate Hillary. I question whether she would be the most effective
person to take over at a time when drastic changes are needed.
She would be infinitely better than any gopper, and I appreciate what could become her monumental place in history. I am just concerned about some of her financial backers. I hope if she is our nominee she will wipe the floor with the pukes and be pushed towards more progressive policies during her time in office.

7. Nobody here hates her. Sure, they'd rather vote for Ron Paul in the general,
but that doesn't mean they don't like her!

29. 29 people so far disagree with you
They voted that they hate her.

This is pathetic.

41. Yes, I know. And I'm betting the worst offenders voted "no."

9. I certainly don't hate her, but I had to vote "yes" because this is such a stupid poll.
There are many perfectly rational reasons for people not wanting her to be the Democratic nominee, it has nothing to do with "hating".

10. Too much baggage for me. Can you imagine the
crap she would have to deal with if in office?

It'll make Cigargate look like a Christmas party!

I certainly don't hate her, and actually admired her strength in the 1990's.

21. You "had" to vote yes.
Actually, no you didn't have to vote yes. You chose to vote yes. Significant difference.

11. No, I'm just sick and tired of her already...
.... I'll happily caucus and then vote for Kucinich in the primaries.

Hate is too strong a word for me. I'm just sick and tired of her and Bill and I don't appreciate their corporate leanings. Never did abide his welfare "reform" nor NAFTA. I don't need the reminder of those policies unless there comes a time when a future president tries to repeal them.

Thanks for asking. Today is the day when I finally feel the need to get some things off my chest. The last debate had me saying pfui.

Edited on Sat Nov-17-07 11:41 AM by Island Blue
And I believe that's exactly what it is to the Clinton's. They both seem to care more about winning at any cost than winning for the benefit of "we the people". After 12 years of that shit, I'd really rather go a different route.

13. No, but I'm not voting for her. I have never bashed her for anything
personal. I do not know her to say whether I like her or not. I do know, however, I don't like her policies, and I don't think she's the right direction this country needs so desperately.

18. Don't hate her but don't want her as our candidate either
She's a grand Senator but I think she would be a terrible candidate and, if elected, would provide "more of the same" from the Oval Office.

As time goes by I find myself gravitating towards Edwards even if the liklihood exists that he will turn out to be just pandering to workers, unions, etc. if he gets into office. Still, at least he's talking the talk. Nobody else is.

19. you act like that is a bad thing
it's the Bush-hater meme again, as if there were not very legitimate reasons to hate him.

In the same way, I think there are very legitimate reasons to hate Hillary.

It's not really personal. I would hate any corporate faux-progressive being pushed on our party by the M$M and a consortium of bigshots, but I also did not like the way she was hand-picked to be Senator of New York, a state I have some personal connection to. She's also a wealthy celebrity with neither understanding nor concern for the problems of ordinary people.

22. I don't "hate" anyone, including our current president.
I'm not a Hillary supporter. I don't have to "love" a candidate to support them or "hate" them to support someone else. Other people feel that need. I'm not one of those people.

25. I'm with you. I don't hate anyone.
I never have. There are people I dislike, Bush being one of them, but the second I begin to hate is the second I have contempt for myself. People who hate become bitter and I don't want to be bitter. :D

26. No, I sure don't
Though I know for certain that posting any criticism of her would win me the title of hater.

It's a shame about hysterical over-zealous supporters...they can really turn people off on a candidate.

27. I really like Hillary; it upsets me that DUers are so brainwashed with the
neo-con anti-Clintonism. That said, I will work enthusiastically for whomever y'all choose. (And it is "vile," the homonym is the container you get your medicine in.)

28. Interesting quote from Hermann Hesse:
If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us.

31. Another Poorly Framed Poll
If you accept this frame, you lose the debate, unless your goal is to paint anyone who disagrees with Hillary as someone who "hates" her instead of someone who strongly disagrees with her and or thinks other candidates are better.

I didn't realize Frank Luntz posted here...

32. Not at all. She's smart and competent and has been an effective Senator.
I just don't think she ought to be the Dem nominee.
