11. At this point, I have doubts that her name is even "Hillary" since she lies so much.

14. Not her

 

The things said about her. I could not stand her until she started getting attacked again. The more she is attacked, the more I identify with her. Strange.

2. The analysis doesn't support your contention.

The key phrase is in the title "legislative weeds".

Bernie pretty much told the truth, too, according to the article.

Ninety-nine percent of voters aren't going to be swayed by the intricacies of legislation and the vagaries of maneuvering on the House and/or Senate floor.

On the other hand, it does make Hillary look like she will be a typical politician and smear and jeer over even the most trivial and inane points if she thinks it might advance her own ambition.

3. I never mentioned Bernie

 

The article supports my contention that she was being honest
