Dear Hillary... Get Your Ass Out There and FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT

If an actual vote is a citizens consent to govern, then the People gave that consent to YOU Hillary. The PEOPLE rejected Trump, and his emotional immaturity, his intellectual dishonesty, his pathological narcissism, and his insane far right agenda by close to 3 million votes.

I don't don't know what your plans are but you better not be licking your wounds, getting ready to retire from public life. If you thought you had the energy to be president for 4 or 8 years then you have the energy to fight what may be the most important battle of your life: saving America and the Democratic legacy from a sociopathic president and his band of far right henchmen. This is no time to retire to Long Island. It's no time to let Bernie, Liz Warren, etc to organize the resistance movements alone. You better be prepared to get your ass out there and leverage that 3 million vote leverage and do it NOW.

18. Yes, I did. I worked for her and the coordinated campaign in my county.

When did you witness her making speeches against Trump's actions after the election? She has made two appearances and nothing more. She has the highest name recognition of perhaps any Democrat on the planet. Not what I'd have expected from the person I hoped would lead us. She didn't win so she disappears?

DURING OUR ENDANGERED BUT INCREDIBLY PRECIOUS PEACEFUL TRANSITION OF POWER IS NOT THE TIME FOR THE DEFEATED CANDIDATE TO REENGAGE. It's not just a matter of principle, but of responsibility and strategic competence. There's a time, and this isn't it.

79. She campaigned with local Democrats

Promoted their candidacy at events, and she raised millions of dollars for state parties.
She coordinated her campaign efforts with local parties--something all Democrats have not done. What that meant is that when Clinton volunteers canvassed or made calls, they also volunteered for local candidates--from senate to congress and state legislators, as well as ballot initiatives supported by local parties.

She did so dating back to the primary, and she even instructed her volunteers to help some local candidates who had endorsed Sanders. Sanders did none of that. In fact his primary concern seemed to be whether someone had endorsed him.

135. Senator Sanders is on the public payroll

As a Senator, he has a vote over cabinet picks and future legislation.

Clinton is at home with her family for the holidays, like other private citizens. In fact, I'm pretty sure that's what Bernie and the rest of congress is also doing.

I am glad that Bernie decided to focus his criticism toward Trump rather than the Democratic Party. I welcome the evolution. I guess he figured out Trump wasn't going to be an ally in tackling corporate corporate corruption after all. http://www.cnn.com/2016/11/17/politics/bernie-sanders-donald-trump-allies/

The question that you demanded proof for was wha she had done in regard to party building. I gave you examples. Rather than acknowledging that your response was to again attack, which is exactly what the point of all of this is. I think we know full well you don't want her leading the party or doing anything other than serving as a scapegoat.

I think it's sad that people are so invested in animus toward one woman that even when they siuceed in ridding the party of her they continue to attack her.

Obviously you aren't on Clinton's email list or don't follow any groups that support her or you wouldn't have to ask what she is doing.

Trump isn't president yet, and Hillary has never been a TV politician. There are some who live for the cameras and do nothing that isn't for a television audience. That isn't Hillary. She will be fighting, but not on TV. She doesn't exist for your or anyone else's entertainment.

151. In Burlington Vermont, he hosted a holiday dinner for at least a couple hundred seniors

many bused in to attend the meal his office paid for ... as he has done for more than a dozen years. A local high school provided christmas carols and the Senator spoke, both to the crowd and then went around to speak to many people. He took photos with anyone who wanted one. ALL FREE.

I live in Vermont and have seen both Sanders and Leahy and Congressman Welch. They are very accessible and that is the New England culture!

198. At least Bernie is working it and not resting on a Foundation's $$$$$

[link:|

I'll say it again, this past election was ours. Bernie would have won it. He had the passion to go to those states and get the voters engaged.
He won't have taken Wisconsin for granted and not showed up. He would have spoken to the workers in Michigan plus Pennsylvannia and gotten them to realize that the (D) party is the one that cares for their issues. Instead of flying between the Hamptons & Martha's Vineyard to Hollywood on fund raising jaunts for the month of August.

199. You simply do not understand....

And these republican talking points are getting monotonous.

Neither Hillary Clinton nor Bill Clinton nor Chelsea Clinton NEVER GOT ANY MONEY FROM THEIR FOUNDATION!!!!!!!

Not a dollar, not a dime, not a penny. Do you realize that? Why do people persist in dragging that totally false notion into these discussions?

We don't know what Sanders would have done in Wisconsin or Michigan or Pennsylvania - he wasn't the nominee. But there's one thing we do know. Days after the convention, when the candidate who wasn't successful traditionally appears with the nominee on the campaign trail (just like Hillary Clinton did in 2008 with Barack Obama), Sanders was off buying himself a new house (mansion?) on an island in Lake Champlain for a price that was about double his reported net worth.

So, you and others are concerned about Clinton's source of income but don't care a whit about Sanders' source of income? Why is that?

This post is exactly how I feel. I woke up this morning wondering what Hillary was up to and if she will join-in to save America. We need her to join the fight and be one of the resistance leaders.

Actually, we needed her to fight the voting results, because she did win and there was massive tomfoolery-rigging is the reason bully-man got more electoral votes. He did not win.

74. I'm with you, Durham D.

Hillary is doing exactly what she should be doing. With new Democratic leadership in the Senate, the last thing they need is another publicity hungry grandstander.

I've been active in my local party for almost 40 years. I encourage anyone who volunteered for the primaries or general election to continue to work. You might feel a bit more in the loop and understand post election machinations better.

As for the cluster of umbrage that followed, the two tip offs were the immediate appearance of a log-rolling echo chamber and the remark about the emails. I wouldn't take any of it seriously.

That's demeaning to her character at least implicitly. I would encourage her activism myself. Normally doing what she is doing would be the civil abd expected thing to do, but this is not a 'normal' election result and the 'winning' candidate is abominable. It is a very anomalous situation, not to mention extremely dangerous.

The Trump Junta is an existential threat to the Democratic legacy. This is a f*cking emergency. As the moral leader of the Democratic Party I'm suggesting she has a VITAL role in the fight to protect it. But obviously you seem to believe trying to insure she remains a leader in the party, where she can help lead the fight to save Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security etc... is an insult to her as a women.

An astounding comment given that she is regularly accused of being a Third Way corporatist sell-out around here. We have been told day in and day out that the party lost because she was such a bad candidate, that Bernie would have beaten Trump. Yet somehow responsibility for opposing Trump falls not to legislators but the person we have been told for years is unfit to be president.

Perhaps she will work on issues before congress. Emails I've gotten as recent as two days ago indicate that she will continue the fight. Congress, however, is not in session and Trump hasn't even taken office.

As for the Senate, Chuck Schumer leads it, not Bernie.

It must be frustrating that Clinton hasn't made herself available to serve as a rhetorical piñata. I can imagine that people who have spent so many years attacking her feel a bit lost.

If she decided to retreat into private life, that would be her right. She has taken more shit--abject hatred--than any person should be expected to endure. That some of the most vicious attacks came from the self-identified left only highlights the hypocrisy of the demands on her to serve them. They destroyed her politically. You would think that would be enough.

Hillary's use of a private server was not illegal and she was never under criminal investigation for it. Nor was she ever named in any "email case." What was reopened recently was one of the many FOIA cases brought by right wing legal terrorist Judicial Watch. It is a civil case claiming the US did not sufficiently comply with Judicial Watch's public records request. The defendant in the case is the US government (State Department).

They only found a few out the the tens of thousands they reviewed, that in their review they decided to reclassify as secret because they mentioned the word "drone." But as Hillary said, that was overclassification run amok. All of those emails were simply forwarding publicly available information, such as newspaper articles. It was a fucking faux scandal yet the press breathlessly treated it like it was a high crime. Then Comey sealed it with his bullshit, Hatch Act violating, cryptic letters.

I guess we shouldn't be surprised that so many on DU -- let alone the general population - have a total misunderstanding of the email issue.

35. Thank you 'eniwetok' for this post!

I am in complete agreement.

I hope Hillary is working on her plan to help lead the resistance. I realize it is a huge shift from almost being the US Prez., so let's give her a minute.

Yet my contention is that I will never understand why she did not fight the vote count. Jill was successful in flushing up some massive issues and votes NOT COUNTED. VOTES NOT COUNTED!!! They pushed Jill aside, but they would not have if it was HRC. So unfortunate she did not fight then. If it had been in the reverse, bully-man would have had multiple lawsuits for HAND re-counts.

What did you expect Gore to do? Meaninglessly grandstand about his entitlement like the spoiler Nader?

89. Are you arguing that Hillary should be challenging Trump for the office of president?

Gore did what he thought was best for the country, given the imminent constitutional crisis that his fight would create. Not all politicians are driven by entitlement and self interest.

The BoBs and the lazy no shows were warned that we would have a replay of 2000 if they didn't do the right thing on election day. That's why Michael Moore (a Naderite in 2000) begged them to vote for Hillary. Had they listened, they would have been the heroes of 2016, and Sanders would now be a very powerful man rather than someone with a vague job in junior leadership.

61. The animosity toward Clinton has become muscle memory

After years of attacking her and seeking to banish her from US politics, they now turn to blaming her for not fighting Trump before he even takes office. You would think they'd be happy that she is finally defeated. But instead we see that attacking her endures, almost as though her detractors are lost without Clinton to scapegoat.

Meanwhile, their elected officials and supposed heroes get a pass, while public statements expressing eagerness to work with him are justified.

She needs time to reflect, collect herself, decide what direction she wants to take. If she had won, she would have a tremendous sense of purpose and surge of excitement and enthusiasm. With that so cruelly taken away from her, it will take a little time to regroup.

Put yourself in her pumps and consider her feelings. If she decides to disappear from public life for awhile or forever, it is her right. She campaigned her heart out and fought like a warrior. She doesn't owe us anything now.

The electoral college has voted. That's it, game over, Trump will be President.

There's no ability, no mechanism to have the election declared invalid, or to have a revote. Repubs would just say it's sour grapes, and they'd probably be right.

We need to go balls out and fight the appointment of Scott Pruitt as EPA Administrator. Al Gore hasn't said anything since his meeting with Trump before the appointment of Pruitt. That leads me to believe that Trump is not going to really support Pruitt during the nomination process, and we need to flip 3 Repubs to block him.

73. You actually have a point. Hillary has a purpose. Perhaps it is not the one we originally thought.

I can't imagine what she must be feeling and going through right now.

But I am a person of faith. I do believe there is an important purpose and destiny beyond her candidacy for the Presidency.

Right now she probably needs time to process everything that's happened. It's a tough thing losing to the worst candidate in American history -- no one knows how she must be castigating herself right now. It's appropriate to take some time to reflect.

However, a majority of Americans did, indeed, vote for her. She can help lead the resistance and, I believe, win over those who voted simply to oppose her in a way that the rest of us can't. She can show the world why she was the better candidate and why the policies she advocated are better for the country than Trump's Government by the Wealthy, for the Wealthy.

I'm sure this will open up a nuanced discussion with the people who spent months saying some variations on the assurances that Hillary was a fierce fighter for progressive values and ready to lead and ready to be president and had the stamina and strength and that it wasn't about her it was about fighting for the goals of the Democratic party but who are now saying "Oh she's tired. She's earned a break."

I don't even know how HIllary is going to move forward or what her plans are, but whether she actually gets involved in this horribly difficult fight we all have ahead of us or if she just chooses to cash in her chips and walk away will be very telling with regard to her priorities and motivation.

I do hope she chooses to join us in this fight and use her considerable clout.

She should flip a double bird to the ignorant fucksticks who elected Trump, and then go and drink umbrella drinks on a beach for a good, long time. Once she's ready, she should do global good works with the Clinton Foundation and spend time being a grandmother.

After the way she was treated by the media, politicians and citizens of America, she should wash her hands of the entire mess.

I sometimes can't believe how irrational some DUers are. So because of 70k people you assume were white rust belt workers... even is she won 3 million more votes, you're willing to say f*ck the Democratic legacy...

So pray tell Einstein... since when was ANY one group responsible for winning an election when ALL votes are cumulative? Bad example... it's like saying there's a winning home run when if not for all the runs before it, it would not win. ALL the votes matters... just a much as all those who didn't vote. So why isn't the Dem get out the vote machine to blame? Why not GOP voter suppression? Why not Dems who sat the election out?

Your choice of who to blame says more about you than the election... and your entire strategy for going forward depends on your flawed if not laughably simplistic analysis.

She is seen, for fair or unfair reasons, as a 'loser'. There is a knee jerk reaction by society of undervaluing the runner up's opinion. It may even be regarded as sour grapes. There is a danger that the MSM, and especially Fox News and wingnut radio would use that angle as a way to obfuscate the actual intent of her actions and so taint the whole process.

I'm sure she will slowly get back to work and I also predict she will gain back public approval ratings. And I am speaking as an ardent Bernie supporter.

152. none have fought harder or lost more in the battle so far than Hillary

as much as the visage of an incoming Trump administration hurts us all, think how much more it hurts her. she was the one who stood against him three times on the debate stage. she was the one who campaigned on "going high when they go low". she was the one betrayed by James Comey and the FBI. she was the person who had to concede to pussygrabber Trump. no one else has gone through what she had to endure, the long days campaigning, the disappointment, the humiliation, the shame of losing to one far less qualified.

i, for one, don't begrudge her any time she might take now to relax and/or put her legal affairs in order (i hear some GOP mollusks have more email-related court proceedings in progress).

apparently 17% of the people who voted for her believe she and John Podesta ran a child sex ring from a D.C. pizza parlor. if a full third of Americans falsely believed you were running a child sex racket, how eager would you be to jump into the ring on your nation's behalf?

maybe it's time for her to step back and let others fight the culture wars for a bit. maybe she can return when her name is cleared and the people understand what they've lost. right now, her reputation is tainted and could actually be counterproductive to our desperate cause.

All the lemmings get you down. Same people who instantly trash any kind of critical thinking and pounce when you question anything on our side. They are the same group who mocked people who wanted to discuss poll trends..the same who called any of us concerned. Haven't heard a single one apologize

186. No, he didn't say it perfectly.. all he has are insults and

that's what you're doing, too.

That's what we're objecting to.. We know Hillary will be back out there when she is ready.. we know who she is.

196. I apologize for that - just can't think of

Another word to describe a real phenomenon that happens here - more and more over the years. Every time anyone posts something with the slightest hint of critique they immediately get pounced by the vast majority. Just look at how this op was treated when expressing their frustration about Hillary. It is their opinion. Why not discuss respectfully if there is anything she could or shouldn't do.

The election was chock full of other examples. Are we here just to agree with the majority? Why do people want to pounce in unison to sqwelch any kind of analysis? I recall a post suggesting that Mook might not be experienced and savvy enough to handle the likes of trump. It was met with mostly "how dare yous" Yet postmortems have said if Carville and Begala had run the campaign she would have won. Any post that cited the poll trends and noted they should concentrate solely on dark and light blues was met with "they know what they are doing"...yet those are the ones she ultimately lost.

Bottom line...think our combined knowledge and intelligence could be a powerful force if people would just allow respectful analysis.

Whatever she is doing right now is her business since she is a private citizen. Anyone telling her what to do can ..........................

193. "Get your ass out there"?

Hillary better help Bernie and Liz save America and not be licking her wounds or be tired out in Long Island?

Yet another Hillary-bashing post thinly disguised as concern or some sort of "advice."

197. Not only that but she lives NORTH of NYC, not east of NYC.

Shows how much thought was put into that rant.

195. This is actually a pretty good test of her character.

 


If she does get back in the game to fight for Progressive ideals then she will prove ( to me at least ) that she was not running for President just so she could have a place in history.

If she retires and lets the country deal with the fallout from her loss, then she proves ( to me at least ) that her motivations for becoming President were entirely self serving.


Time will tell.

The potential damage these people could do to this country, and the planet, wil potentially be insurmountable as we hurdle towards climate and energy catastrophe. Hillary may not be president but she could put a stamp on history as indelible as anything she could have done as president. I mean she could be the savior of the republic. History would never forget at least. However, with all of the crap she put up with Hillary is entitled to ride off in the sunset if she wishes.
