125. Kagan did endorse Hillary Clinton--He can't get enough of Hillary Clinton

Are you a comedian?

Here's the article from the Washington Post:
https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/trump-is-the-gops-frankenstein-monster-now-hes-strong-enough-to-destroy-the-party/2016/02/25/3e443f28-dbc1-11e5-925f-1d10062cc82d_story.html

Kagan decries Trump (as you said), AND he states that he will vote for Hillary Clinton while encouraging others to do so, “For this former Republican, and perhaps for others, the only choice will be to vote for Hillary Clinton. The [Republican] party cannot be saved, but the country still can be.”

Kagan, the founder of the neocons--and the architect of the Iraq war--declares in the Washington Post that if it's Trump/Clinton, he'll vote for Clinton.

What is the point that you're trying to make? That Kagan doesn't really like Hillary or believe in her?

You must be unaware that these two love birds go waaaay back. Hillary Clinton picked Kagan to be one of her Middle East foreign-policy advisers, while she was Secretary of State. She chose Kagan the warmonger. Libya is one of the countries that the neocons have had on their wish list. Hillary handed it to them on a silver platter.

These two are beyond endorsements!

But please...make your case that this was a non-endorsement endorsement.

The internet is chock full of Kagan singing her praises and discussing how her foreign-policy is aligned with his thinking.

Obviously, you are one of her ardent cheerleaders who will go to the ends of the earth to justify all of this. I applaud you for trying and for laying your cards on the table. Most of the peanut gallery don't go near these posts.

I tell you what I find refreshing. That Bernie Sanders will never be endorsed by a neocon. That I will never have to try to explain why he's hob knobbing with the founder of the neocon movement. I'll never see a Washington Post article in which war engineers endorse Bernie over Trump. I'll never see Bernie furthering their war-for-profit schemes.

Bernie's campaign is funded by individual donors. His average campaign contribution is $27. To suggest that somehow Bernie is on par with Hillary running off to millionaires, billionaires and Wall Street every five days to grab another sack of money--is beyond ridiculous.
