5. That's one of my big reasons for not going Clinton this time.
Much as I like her and think she would make as fine a president as anyone else who was in the Dem run, I don't like the thought that if she wins, that's 24 to 28 years of two families (32 to 36 if you count Bush's 8 years as VP). That's more than 10% of our country's lifespan.

I could vote for her in 4 or 8 years, but not this time. Dynasties are never good, even beneficial well-run ones.

6. Obama will be the only one to shed light on the last 20 years.
We can't even shed light on Hillary's tax return and she is running. If she's elected it's lights out again.

7. That wouldn't be a reason for me to vote or not vote for someone
I'd never vote for a bush for anything and I need something more then she's married to a past president to not vote for Clinton. I will say, as a General Clark supporter, Obamaites and Clintonistas on DU GD-P have done a piss poor job of convincing me to vote for their candidates. The candidates are doing a fine job, but many of their supporters are raving fucking lunatics who don't reflect well on their candidates.

9. Oh, Cut It Out
If Clinton gets the nomination, would you vote for McCain because you want to avoid a "dynasty"?

Watch what you say in the primary, it could easily come back to bite Democrats in the butt come the general.

(PS: I didn't like Clinton extolling McCain's experience while belittling Obama, either)

10. Robin Hood? you jest. - the two families are not comparable


one is a large family of criminals and the other is a married couple.

comparing them does not compute.

11. The 20 Year Crap Is Really Really Stupid. Stick With Facts: We've Had 8 Years Of Bill. That's It.
They were 8 great years. His wife would also make an awesome President. End of fucking story.

23. Can you count?
GHWB: 4 years
Clinton: 8 years
Bush the Lesser: 8 years

8+8+4 = 20 years

If Clinton becomes President...and is re-elected...that's 28 fucking years of two families running the country. We might as well say we're a Democratic Monarchy.

I have not spent a day in my life when a Bush or Clinton wasn't in the executive branch (Shrub Sr. was VP when I was born).

20. Queen Clinton?
No.

Try Senator, soon to be President Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Try again.

22. Try soon to be ex-senator Hillary Rodan Clinton.
The Clintons have trashed their name in the party. The DLC will lose this battle, and will crawl away mute, after we stomp their proverbial larynx.
