51. There's a lot of that 'taking votes for granted' in the Clinton campaign.
Tue Feb 23, 2016, 09:38 PM
Feb 2016

It's her 'New Southern Democrats' strategy:

Vote for Hillary:
Whites door sign: "I'm the lesser of 2 evils"
Blacks door sign: "You're my Firewall"

Hillary has divided us up by race all over the country and valued us not by the content of our character, but by the color of our skin.

The door sign for multi-raced families: "Just vote for me d#%@ it!" (Hillary slams it and stomps off)
