78. I vow that I will NOT tear down any candidate that runs against Hillary.

Why give fodder for the republican party of JebBush/Rand Paul?

Let's tear down Bush and Paul and Rubio and Christie and all the others.

If some here like someone other than Hillary, instead of saying anti-Hillary stuff, just say positive whoever stuff.

Remember, in 1988, the great Mike Dukakis in the debate got hurt by the Bernie Shaw question,
yet it was A DEMOCRATIC CHALLENGER that brought the situation up, later used by Rove.

Positive your choices, let's not tear others down

Remember, SCOTUS depends on a democratic president winning in 2017.

That is going to be the term that the big switch on the court can happen.

So, I vow not to tear others down, and just say the positives about Hillary.

It would be nice to all do the same.

Same with all senate/house/governors. Say positives about primary runs but not tear down each other.
