From your link.. "Perhaps it’s a justifiable anger; but frankly, much of America is pretty “sick and

tired” of being yelled at and ordered around by angry white men—on either end of the political spectrum. And building a campaign led and championed by flustered, shouting white guys is not good brand management in 2015. For one, it doubles down on this (incorrect) notion of Bernie Sanders as a cooky, red-faced Vermont hippy, glasses askew. But it also highlights a troubling habit of educated, left-minded young men: to condescend when they should be consensus-building, and belittle when they should be listening. These types seem to think they’re the only ones who truly know what’s best for this country. Don’t agree? Well you’re just a big idiot."

Thank you.

Yes! but, I think they both have some of the geek.. and Hillary's kind of a badass herself..

[font color=blue]This is Hillary's Group~ Please leave your negative attitude at the door. Mahalo~[/font]

Muchas Gracias for your OP, riversedge!



I can tell you from personal experience that there were so many Hillary supporters in

2008 who got behind Obama when he became the President, Justin.

There was just one on here who was so bitter "they voted for McCain".. now that's bitter! That's a startling exception. I know damn well if Hillary would have won I would have voted for her.

President Obama and Hillary put their differences aside and came together for the very Good of the country. I started liking her again at the Dem Convention and then when he chose her for his SOS.. I rooted for both of them and have continued to do so.

I see at the debate that Hillary has embraced President Obama.. she's not out there dissing him like one Bernie sanders.

Hillary Clinton won the debate (and six other takeaways from Las Vegas)



Hillary Rodham Clinton was the only candidate on stage last night who looked like a plausible president. She had gravitas and filled the stage, while her four rivals came across as unelectable, unserious or both. In short, she solidified her status as the Democratic front-runner. Clinton’s strong performance will, at least temporarily, quiet doubts among party elites and make it less likely that Joe Biden enters the race.

Other important takeaways from the evening–


1. Hillary’s tight hug of Obama means there is less room for Biden. Mindful of a possible bid by the vice president, Clinton clearly wanted to send a message that she will aggressively compete for the Obama coalition and continue to grab for the president’s mantle. “I would have to think this would give him some pause,” longtime Obama strategist David Axelrod said of Biden after the debate.

After publicly breaking with him recently on issues like immigration, the Keystone XL Pipeline and the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the most striking storyline of the night was how closely Clinton tied herself to Obama. The full embrace of her ex-rival is also a testament to the president’s enduring popularity among Democratic primary voters

Hillary name-dropped Obama more than anyone else, by far. Responding to questions about her early support for the Iraq war, she noted that Obama opposed it but still chose her for secretary of state. Clinton used the word “we” repeatedly to describe various actions overseas, including a dramatic retelling of herself and Obama chasing after the Chinese to try getting a climate change deal. Asked how she’d differ from Obama in the White House, Hillary dodged by noting that she’d be the first female president.

Much MOre~ Not very flattering to Bernie Sanders .. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2015/10/14/the-daily-202-hillary-clinton-won-the-debate-and-six-other-takeaways-from-las-vegas/

This makes me happy.. I like to see our Dems supporting each other.. Hillary and President Obama have both worked so hard and accomplished so much.. but, of course, there's so much more work to be done.

The last 7 years need to be built on.. not torn apart and plundered.

Evidently they've remained good friends.. and I couldn't be happier.

Mahalo for your OP, Justin.. too bad for they have nothing so they make up crap out of thin air.

Wonderful pic of the two of them.. Gracias ronny! snip from your article..

Parachuting into San Antonio to pick up an endorsement from Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, who is often mentioned as a possible running mate, Clinton rallied supporters and went deep on policy in a session with the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. During the short visit, she put on full display how deep and durable are her ties with one of the most important voting blocs in the nominating contest.[/i]

Hillary Clinton’s Democratic Debate Magic



snip//

I never doubted that Hillary Clinton had many talents.

I just didn’t know that seamstress was among them.

There were moments in the first Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday night when she threaded the needle as delicately and perfectly as a politician could.

snip//

Sanders said America should look to Denmark. Clinton countered: “We are not Denmark. I love Denmark. We are the United States of America.”

Even when she was confronted anew by her vote in the Senate long ago to authorize the invasion of Iraq, she was neither defiant nor apologetic, steering a smooth midcourse by recalling that at debates in 2008, Barack Obama had attacked her for that. “After the election,” she pointed out, “he asked me to become secretary of state. He valued my judgment.”

The subject of Iraq caused her less grief than Sanders suffered on gun control, when not only Clinton but also Martin O’Malley, the former Maryland governor, rejected his explanation of votes in the Senate against various bills and his insistence that he was representing rural areas with gun cultures, not a nationwide electorate. It was clumsy because he presents himself as a creature of pure principle, immune to political convenience.

But on Tuesday night an odd sort of role reversal occurred. For much of the debate, Sanders somehow came across as the embattled incumbent, targeted by the other four candidates, while Clinton came across as the energetic upstart.

MUch MOre.. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/14/opinion/hillary-clintons-democratic-debate-magic.html?_r=0

I knew she would shine!
