Litmus test... Does leadership issues matter in GE race and discussion about them here in DU

We have this http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/clinton-donor-sensitive-intelligence-board/story?id=39710624

Does this pay to play issue matter?

Should we be able to discuss how this will impact the nominee in GE, since it will clearly lead to pointed ads as it concerns leadership

Discussions already have and will continue to occur surrounding the impact of the Clinton Foundation, how much more will that distract from issues and policies that a nominee should be focusing on? Shouldn't a nominee and family divest themselves completely of ventures that create these debacles?

DO you consider this an issue or no? what say you?

Hillary the Hawk

Here are some excerpts from her speech today:

"And if America doesn’t lead, we leave a vacuum – and that will either cause chaos, or other countries will rush in to fill the void. Then they’ll be the ones making the decisions about your lives and jobs and safety – and trust me, the choices they make will not be to our benefit.
That is not an outcome we can live with."

She will continue the current wars and promote the US 'policing' the rest of the world...

"Third, we need to embrace all the tools of American power, especially diplomacy and development, to be on the frontlines solving problems before they threaten us at home." ... "Now we must enforce that deal vigorously. And as I’ve said many times before, our approach must be “distrust and verify.” The world must understand that the United States will act decisively if necessary, including with military action, to stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. In particular, Israel’s security is non-negotiable. They’re our closest ally in the region, and we have a moral obligation to defend them."

When did the US need to become more imperialistic? when did this become a progressive / liberal position?

"Fifth, we need a real plan for confronting terrorists. As we saw six months ago in San Bernardino, the threat is real and urgent. Over the past year, I’ve laid out my plans for defeating ISIS.
We need to take out their strongholds in Iraq and Syria by intensifying the air campaign and stepping up our support for Arab and Kurdish forces on the ground."

Now she's throwing Obama under the bus? 'we need a real plan for confronting terrorists'? Obama doesn't have a real plan being acted upon currently?

"And one more thing. A President has a sacred responsibility to send our troops into battle only if we absolutely must, and only with a clear and well-thought-out strategy. Our troops give their all. They deserve a commander-in-chief who knows that."

Where does Libya fall into the category of 'well thought out'?

I'm tired of wars that lack planning in the aftermath, the conclusion and reconstruction...
I'm tired of $$ being tossed out the window without clarity and an audit
I'm tired of lack of reporting on the longest war the US has ever been involved in...

Bernie's campaign and his supporters, grassroots activists?

Does Bernie, his campaign and his supporters fall into grassroots activism and activist?

Does this comment apply and why SDs are actually created to prevent Bernie from earning nomination?

If HRC were to become president how many and whom...

of the wall street crowd would she place into positions of power within her administration?

Obama is well known for the Goldman Sachs cronies he placed into his administration

So let's discuss HRC and her affiliation with WS insiders and what that would mean within her administration if she were to become prez

I'm with her...


She has great points, I agree with what she's presented

What say HRC supporters about what she brings up?

NY Primary and the NY Debate...

My hope is that Bernie points out the issues and uses the vast amount of history that HRC is unable to refute on the issues that will crush her and expose her for the republican light candidate she is...

Just one example of an issue that will unravel HRC within NY

On CNN now..

Gotta love Tulsi Gabbard, patience of a saint... on with Wolf, he's trying way too hard to have her stumble over the 'is Hillary qualified' gotcha sound bite question

She pivoted cleanly to speaking that policy and issues are what's important about qualification...

Then Wolf pivots to 'will you support Hillary if she wins the nomination' narrative...

Wolf is a hack

UPDATE with vid

Heads up...

Need to validate if this is true or not, can someone check into this?

HRC supporters...

There have been many OPs framed that are intellectually disingenuous by HRC supporters concerning the support a nominee should have after convention is over and GE starts...

If it's their candidate that comes out on top they have posted OPs in GD-P like this:


but from the 'safety' of their own group they post like this:

So why the double standard HRC supporters as it pertains to whomever wins the nomination?

Why not be as honest in GD-P as you might be in Clinton group?

Allow everyone to see your positions as they really are now rather than after the convention...
