Response to boston bean (Original post)

Sat Aug 29, 2015, 05:05 PM

17. I will vote for Hillary if she is the nominee, and I expect she will be.

But I would like to feel better about it. I would like to be given some reason to feel better about it.

A meme from the DNC meeting is that she would build the party, supporting down-ticket candidates, with the seeming implication that other candidates would not or could not. But my memory from Bill Clinton's presidency is that he was not a party-builder, just the contrary. Perhaps I am wrong, and anyway Hillary is not Bill, but can anybody give me reason to think that a second Clinton administration will build a stronger 50-state Democratic party?

Come on, Hillary supporters -- help me out here. Give me some reason to join you.
