Since Hillary is our inevitable candidate...

... I say we send her a message by voting for Bernie in the Primary.

What better way to show her what the people would like without interfering with her scheduling fundraisers with her more important demographic of the top 1%?

;~)

1. No, she won't....

voting for Bernie because of where he has been, and where he is, on the issues. Hoping to change someone is.....silly at best.

2. Go ahead and do your voting thing. Meanwhile Hillary's team

will be working their asses off to make sure the Democratic nominee isn't outgunned by the GOP in the GE.

7. When has anyone referred to her as "inevitable"?

Can you point to even one example?

This straw man argument is cute, but has absolutely no basis in reality.

And just to be clear, pointing out that she's a heavy favorite is not the same as claiming that she's inevitable. She's no more inevitable than she was in 2008. But, she is a much better candidate this time around, and she's running against a far less impressive campaign. Do with that as you will.

9. The devoted of St. Bernard do so daily.

 

So much so, they now actually believe it's an actual argument.

Really "hilarious" since it's an argument against people and an argument that doesn't even exist.

10. Followed by the "it's her turn" nonsense.



I believe they're focusing on, and obsessed with the wrong things. Oh well... let 'em ... it works for me.

14. Read DU much? Watch medias much?

 

Doesn't seem like it if you miss the unending string of posts about how she WILL be the nominee.

Also doesn't seem like it if you miss all the posts about the issues ane reasons people support sanders and are not wild about Clinton.

You are obviously free to disagree. But it would be helpful if you didn't distort these things.

"As Iowa debate nears, Clinton seems inevitable again"

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2015/09/clinton-2016-has-never-made-sense-for-democrats/401597/

"Many have spent months regarding her as inevitable. They’ve resigned themselves to holding their noses and voting for her to stave off Donald Trump or Ben Carson or Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio."

No wonder Hillary thinks she is inevitable: She ALREADY has the votes of 500 Democratic establishment 'superdelegates' locked up

13. This is it?

Every single time a Clinton supporter posts good news about her campaign, they are attacked for being part of some larger effort to bully other candidates into submission. These claims further morph into arguments that Clinton supporters view this primary as "her turn" and as a "coronation."

And when asked to provide some evidence of these claims, the best you can come up with are some incredibly benign media stories about the strength of her campaign position?

Kudos for finding some stories that actually use the word "inevitable," but this is pretty weak.

12. Apparently we Hillary supporters want a "coronation".

And again, it only seems to be her opponents who claim that. I want a spirited primary season where the issues are argued, the candidates make their cases, and the nominee is chosen. I hope that will be Hillary but if not, so be it, and I will vote in a heartbeat for whoever it is.
