One who was on "the inside" pissing in.

Never thought otherwise.

The more people explore her history, the worse it gets.

Good riddance.

For years, she played some of us for fools and benefitted from our efforts.
Now she's out, but I doubt she's giving refunds and she'll get most of her cred from bashing Democrats as a former "insider".

From day one.

Why think anyone who donated to her deserves any refund? Call it the price for not heeding the reality staring them in the face.

Any glee I might have had in her departure remains tainted by how long she stuck around doing damage

We could have been preparing solid young candidates with the resources she consumed.

I couldn't care less where she goes. She is not worth the energy it takes to care either way.

and run as a Democrat to get elected, but it takes belief in our ideals and goals and supporting the party to achieve them to really BE a Democrat.

And she doesn't have it, in spades. Glad she's dropped the embarrassing association.

She was never a "good" Dem anyway. She was a Green, then a Dem, now a what? "Independent?" Yeah, right.

Seems more like a villain on a soap opera people are outsized obsessed about for some reason (get some of that Joan Collins dream casting). She was never a factor in the primary.

Hadn't heard about her in ages. I look forward to continue the tradition of not hearing about her in the future.

I've gathered from responses she guests on Fox News sometimes?

Seems mission accomplished to me. She was never a realistic option for going farther in the party.
