This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Sissyk (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Sanders-Clinton debate transcript: Annotating what they say
TODD: Would you unite the party by trying to pick Senator Sanders as your running mate?

CLINTON: Well, I'm certainly going to unite the party, but I'm not -- I'm not getting ahead of myself. I think that would be a little bit presumptuous. If I'm so fortunate as to be the nominee, the first person I will call to talk to about where we go and how we get it done will be Senator Sanders.

(APPLAUSE)

TODD: Senator, would you consider the secretary?

SANDERS: I agree with what the secretary said. We shouldn't be getting ahead of ourselves. And as I have said many times, you know, sometimes in these campaigns, things get a little bit out of hand. I happen to respect the secretary very much, I hope it's mutual. And on our worst days, I think it is fair to say we are 100 times better than any Republican candidate.

In Sanders own words, he thinks that both Hillary Clinton and he are 100 times better than any Republican Candidate. I think we can take his word for that.

4. And yet, Sanders is also under that bar.

If Sanders loses, he will be standing beside Clinton, helping her win the General.

I am stunned.

Calling him a "naive idealist" is one of the best reasons I can think of not to vote for him.

7. I wonder

If that was one of those "freudian slips" there? Could it be he isn't really for Bernie or Hillary?

I know I take Bernie for his word, and I know that he would be supporting Hillary if she were to win, just like Hillary would be supporting Bernie if he wins. I honestly can figure how any "real" Democrat would not think either one of them is a 100 times better than any of the republicans in the clown care.

10. I think in the thick of a ugly primary fight, Hyperbole sometimes gets the upper hand.

Sanders is not my preferred candidate, but I consider him honest, truthful, and a man of his word.

If he wins the nomination, I will vote for him and he will be a good President.

I'm mocking you guy's nonsensical meme.

I don't agree with everything he believes. The Sanders campaign is not about a subservient and delusional cult of personality. We're allowed to think he's wrong sometimes.

He's wrong about this.

Much more criticism of Sanders by Sanders supporters than I've ever seen w/ Clinton and her supporters.

I have however seen numerous supporters justify Clinton's corruption and dishonesty and scorched earth campaign.

You might just be confused, but I assume you're just playing a game.

They tell me Hillary is just playing the game on an almost daily basis.

Hillary swaps another one of her positions. Playing the game.

Lies about past beliefs. Playing the game.

Being corrupt. Playing the game.

Being funded by weapons manufacturers. Playing the game.

Hiding who donated to her "Foundation". Playing the game.

And on and on.

It's early.
I'm good with either choice against a Republican.
I am a liberal rather than a true believer in a candidate.

26. No liberal

Could vote for someone that could look at Saudi Arabia - a country with one of the worst human and women's rights records - and sign off on selling them 29B in weapons. She called that weapons deal a "top priority". Not helping Saudi women. Selling their royals weapons. Weapons being used to commit war crimes as we speak.

She presided over that deal while getting 25m from the Saudis and Boeing. While her husband got 250,000 from Boeing.

And then she hired the guy who owns the lobbying firm that represents Saudi Arabia and Boeing as her campaign chairman.

And broke her promise to Obama about disclosing who donated to her Foundation - she still haven't revealed those.

And then obscured 1100+ other donors by funneling them through a campaign donors Canadian charity - those haven't been revealed either. And publicly lie about why.

None of this is liberal behaviour. And it's no wonder - she's not a liberal. She's a center-right corporatist.

because protocol, tact, and grace are just polite ways of lying out of one's ass.

And that isn't bullshit.

I think he told the truth and will back it up with action.

My opinion varies in this case, but I understand his need to be tactful. I understand that you intend to use that a lot but even you must understand the politics behind the statement. He is trying to salvage a dem win regardless, while she must win regardless of breaking up the party and losing to Trump. Everything in her world is just her. No one and nothing else matters.

30. Ya know, the first problem is that this...

should be in GD-P.

But, even if there's a good argument not to put it there, you'll note that such a simple and decent statement from Sander started a small argument.

I don't get why this statement should be at all controversial, but it is evidence that GD-P was a good idea.

you brought a nice little story here, whether it belongs here or not, and others decided to take a dump on it.

"Blame" is slippery, too but I'd still put it on the dumpers.

I hope she does not choose that julian castro or his brother. Those two freak me out, I don't know why, their faces just freak me out. They're also too young/callow for my taste. It reminds me of that joke from Ray Romano about twins and how it's bad if one is funny looking, to see one of them, and then another one following right after.

37. That's HIS opinion

Why is it so hard for some Hillary supporters to understand that Sander's supporters do not march in lockstep? They aren't like Hillary supporters who change their principles and opinions based on what their candidate says. If we agree with Sanders we say so. If we don't we say that too. Our principles and opinions are our own. NO CANDIDATE will get blind obedience from us. They earn our support.

they take one sentence and try to make it all about it, while purposefully overlooking the message of a post. I'm not sure it it is to get us angry in trying to make them understand a simple thing or if it is spinning 101 class.

I find them funny yet sad. Mostly sad that people who claim to be intelligent would vote for someone who obviously is going to change things for the worse. People will die because of Hillary. I am certain of that. It saddens me that her supporters think that every lie, cheat, immoral act she commits is a good thing.

It totally depends on whether she is against the trade deals (as she says to voters) OR for them as she says in her private emails.

Is she FOR a womans right to choose (as she says to voters) OR is she okay limiting abortion as long as the health of the mother is included in the law?
