Response to DemocratSinceBirth (Reply #261)

Sun Mar 22, 2015, 03:29 AM

267. So, how do you suppose that Hillary can court "the left"?

We all know how well she's courting the "moderate Republican" type, and it seems that she's aiming to court "moderate Republican" women in particular.
Do you think there's enough of a possible vote swing, among "moderate Republican's", to pull it off without the left?

I'm Canadian, so I don't count. I *can't* be a Dem or Rep, so I don't factor in. But Canadians watch US politics, if we're aware of politics at all. It's forced on us by geography and demographics. So my personal experience might not count, in your opinion. But I was a strong "supporter" of Bill Clinton, believing him to be a breath of fresh air after the ridiculously violent warmongering Reagan, and I, a male, didn't "get it" when all the sleazy shit went down about Bill, whereas all the females in my family were of one opinion. They didn't like it and it was essential. They made me feel like an idiot - but they were right. The females in my family aren't right-wing. They are feminists and entrepreneurs. You might say: "that's Bill, not Hillary!" But it really isn't.

I think that kind of baggage might weigh even more among "moderate Republican" type women, than among the liberal/socialist/entrepreneurs in my family.

So I'm just sayin' that I don't think HRC has much chance of making inroads among "moderate Republican" women. And I'm asking you, how do you suppose that Hillary can court "the left"?
