Haterís gonna hate. I thought Hillary did great this morning.

I'm thankful for the photos shared here and for the many who made the trip to support her. Thank you all. I then spent more time than I should have, sifting through the anti-Hillary posts, since you can't miss them. They're everywhere.

Hillary could have been anything she wanted to be. No one can deny that the woman is incredibly smart, insightful, and yes ambitious. But so what. If she had a pair of balls, she would have been president a long time ago. But there has always been this double standard for women; so the best she could do before now, is to be the woman behind the man. We know the media is going to spend the dog days of summer talking about the Clintonís wealth and conducting bullshit polls about whether Americanís think Hillary is honest or not, but if the media was truly honest they would take a poll about what the country thinks about the honesty of every candidate running for president, or any office for that matter and Iím sure the results would show that Hillary is in good company. And if all the Clintonís were interested in was wealth, they could have had that decades ago and spared themselves and this nation a ton of grief.

For those of you who donít like her, and have no plans to vote for her, thatís your business. But be honest about it. It takes a hell of a lot of guts to put yourself out there as a candidate. Much more than it takes to sling mud via a keyboard. If Elizabeth Warren wanted to run for president she could have, but she didnít. If Bernie has a loyal fan base out there who CAN get him to the White House, so be it. Time will tell. But stop opining about what could have been, and what ifs. Running for president is not easy. Hillaryís been down this road before, and she knows that itís not going to be easy, especially with what sheís already had to put up with in the past three decades with all the bullshit investigations woven out of whole cloth. Iím always amazed at how the Democratic party members like to eat their own, particularly when there is a whole host of GOP members who are waiting, ready and willing to do their bidding for them. No I donít have thousands of posts here on this website like some here, but than Iíve got a job and a family and didnít have time to rack up thousands of posts over the past, but Iíve always kept myself politically informed and voted, and my husband has worked on both national and local democratic campaigns in the past few years since he was been retired.

The GOP has a host of billionaires ready to finance their puppet candidates who will do their bidding to continue stacking the deck of the Supreme Court, suppress voterís rights, try and repeal the ACA, continue fighting the last war with other people childrenís boots on the ground, ship your jobs overseas, overturn environmental protections, further reduce taxation on the top earners, etc, etc, etc. The Democratic Party needs a candidate who can win. If that candidate is Bernie Sanders, time will tell. In the meantime, ask yourself what YOU have done lately to further the Democratic cause. If the only thing has been to sit at your keyboard and bash those whoíve thrown their hat in the ring, than heaven help us all. I plan to retire at the end of the year, just in time to work on Hillaryís campaign. If Hillaryís no longer a candidate, Iíll campaign for whomever the Democratic candidate is, because never before have the principles of the two major parties been so stark in contrast.

2. I appreciate that Skinner and EarlG supplied the updates they did

 

Even though I trashcanned the threads right away so I would not be tempted to reply to them, I know there are people on this board who are very happy they did this.

Good job guys!
