I don't have any wounds from 2008, so I don't understand what you mean.

When DUers claim that other DUers hate Clinton, I think they're incorrect. I certainly don't hate her, and I assume most other people don't, either. So, I thought I'd find out.

She never stood up for marriage equality when we needed her. She isn't standing up for reigning in multi-national corporations, she isn't standing up against fracking or Keystone XL. She won't stand up against TPP or other trade agreements that cost jobs and limit our ability to regulate corporate abuses.

Hate has nothing to do with it.

31. I don't think she actively wants to harm me or my loved ones.

But I do believe that when the choice comes down to it, she will make an informed choice to further her interests at the expense of mine, even if my interests are dire needs and hers are merely the desire for the accumulation of more wealth and power.

As I stated in another thread, she had no problem coming out for marriage equality - as soon as it was absolutely safe to do so and not a moment sooner. I don't think she wants to hurt the LGBT community, but she wanted the presidency and it may never have occurred to her that real people were dying and losing everything they ever owned because of her lack of support.

Again, I don't hate her, I distrust her greatly.

27. I think she is jockying for a new job, not looking for a way to help the country.

And I think the advisers who surround her are the same. Once the campaign is over her interest in helping the voters will move to the bottom of the list, or maybe fall completely off the list.

And as for liberal voters, the party will move their concerns into the column reserved for "retarded dirty hippies".

The pragmatic recognitionthat HRC has compromised herself beyond any hope of representing the people is something other than hate. It's a bit like recognizing when you can no longer trust a sibling because she is addicted to drugs or traveled too long down a path from which there is no return.

Hate? No. Profound sadness for her and her supporters and a commonsense commitment to support a true representative of the people? Definitely.

Bernie is one of the good guys.

59. You must have missed this:

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is a man who has always advocated for the underdogs, for women, for minorities. And so it’s exceptionally ironic and troubling that his campaign is being hijacked by priggish, self-satisfied, angry white progressives. The elitist, misogynistic kind whose myopic priorities are pot laws and the privacy of their emails. Oh, and their zealous, rabid hate for former Secretary Hillary Clinton.

I am supporting Bernie because he supports almost al the changes I'd love to see made to our Country, but I also recognize that it's going to be a tough uphill battle for him to win the Dem nomination.

If, however, she becomes the nominee, I will definitely vote for her in the general election. No hate involved at any level.
