    I’m sick of the Clintons in the same way those voting for Trump are sick of the Bushes.

    Just as Trump could bring down his party, Clinton could bring down hers, inspiring an election calamity she’s built her run on with the “vote for me because [whatever, something about being the only one able to nibble the edges].”

    Sad to say but I’ve come around to the fatalism of if a calamity is what it takes to usher the old school off the stage, I’m Ok with it.

    Ask yourself this:

    How much of your “sickness” of the Clintons is the result of 25 years of Republican attacks and propaganda and how much actually is based on anything they themselves have done?

    I don’t find Hilary particularly likable, but I don’t think I’ll ever have a beer Scotch with her. I do think she would be quite competent as President; her conduct vis-a-vis Obama after 2008 I believe demonstrated that.

    As much as I respect Sanders, I don’t think he has a snowball’s chance in hell of winning the general election; no one who freely calls himself a socialist would in a country that spent a century demonizing socialism and communism.

    Me, I prefer to vote in the real world.

    Remember also that folks voted for President George the Worst because they thought that he was “likable,” that he would be fun to have a beer with him. I don’t find “likable” a rational or sensible standard.

    I can say only what Blue Gal says: In November, I hope to vote for the same person Bernie votes for.


    Do you really want any of the Republican hopefuls to have his finger on the button? I enjoyed 10,000 BC the movie (Raquel Welch, for Pete’s sake), but I don’t want to live it in glowing radioactive technicolor.
