102. I don't really give a crap what Republicans want....
*I* don't want Hillary, and one of the major reasons is she is much TOO cooperative with the Republican party platform. Sure she votes left (or what passes for "left") on a lot of issues, but those are the sort of half measures and small agenda items that allow her to pass for "progressive" when she is unwilling to take a principled stand on one of the big issues of the day.

Of course the Republicans don't like her, she's a DEMOCRAT! but the fact that she's a Democrat that Republicans don't like is not reason enough for me to vote for her.

In other words, the same qualities that make her a bad nominee for the Democrats are what make her a good nominee for the Republicans - they are two sides of the same coin, but just because I refuse to vote for Hillary (in the primaries - we'll see about the GE) on this basis does not mean I am basing my vote on the opinions of Republicans. What is bad for Democrats is good for Republicans and vice-versa! I am refusing to vote for hillary not because I precieve her as good for Republicans, but because I precieve her as bad for Democrats - though (again) it is two sides of the same coin.
