The winner of 2015? Hillary Clinton

Some nice things being said about our candidate: https://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/2015/12/24/the-winner-hillary-clinton/KcjEONBB52FaHr8z796xVN/story.html

In a year that saw the rise of Donald Trump and the surprising emergence of Bernie Sanders, the real winner for 2015 is actually a more conventional name: Hillary Clinton.

This might seem like a surprising choice. What about her e-mails and her private server? What about Benghazi? What about the lack of enthusiasm for her candidacy or her struggling poll numbers?

Those were problems, but the e-mail scandal has largely faded from view. As for Benghazi, Clinton’s appearance before a congressional committee largely put that issue to bed — and gave her a chance to shine before a national audience. While Sanders’ challenge remains an issue, Clinton has shown in the three Democratic debates that she is on top of her game and is by far the best politician running this cycle. Five weeks until Iowa, Clinton has a double-digit national lead over Sanders and is almost certainly going to be the Democratic nominee next year.

If anything, Sanders’ challenge has probably been more helpful than harmful, by forcing Clinton to sharpen her message before the harsh glare of a national campaign.


To all kindred spirits on DU, no matter which candidate they currently support:

1. Hillary has shown her presidential side, the debates was a great exposure,

She handled the answers very well, her ability to move around in foreign policy was with ease.

4. Presidential not

She has shown that she will do anything, say anything, be anything to get elected. After that all bets are off. That is why I will not vote for this woman no matter what.

5. Two questions

a. Why are you in the Hillary Clinton group?
b. "this woman." That's called wolf-whistle politics. Take the misogyny elsewhere, please.

That poster won't be answering anybody in Hill's Group ever again. He chose to come in here and spout nonsense.. therefore he's gone.

It's a shame about the rudeness. Senator Sanders himself seems all right, but this sort of behaviour, while not surprising (the left historically has not given a rat's patootey about women unless it's convenient), is dismaying.

Hillary is the smartest one in the room. Let's hope we have a Madame President in January 2017.

10. I specifically posted this in the Hillary Clinton group

so as not to get your kind of response. You trash Hillary everywhere else, but NOT here.

Glad to hear that you're gone forever from this group. A Grinch indeed.

12. Very nice.

Thanks for posting and Happy Holidays to all, even the grinches who stop by to drop a Christmas turd in our punch bowl. Although it would be nice if we could give our pooper scoopers a rest on Christmas Day!

14. A Tweet from President Obama whose message only strengthens Hillary being the Winner in 2015..

She's working hard enough to earn it..
