Dear Bernie Supporters You've Had Your Fun. Now, Hillary Wants Your Support!

She won the Confederate States as expected. Now she has to try to win over Democrats many of whom were so uninspired by the DNC's choice of candidate they didn't show up to vote.

She is losing in polls now in the upcoming Primaries where Progressives are going with Bernie.

Even in WV and Utah, Bernie is ahead of her now.

And here in NY, amazingly despite the efforts to stop new Dem voters from registering, Bernie is beating her by 2%.

The turnout was low among Dem voters and would have been even lower if Bernie was not in the race.

So despite all the nastiness towards all of us 'racist, sexist BernieBros' Hillary is asking us to 'unite'.

I have to say, as a totally thrilled Berniebro with last night's results I find it INSULTING for her to even SUGGEST that we leave a WINNING campaign for hers when we know she cannot defeat the Republicans.

So, my answer to Hillary's plea is 'how about YOUR supporters coming on over to the Winning Campaign so we can Defeat Republicans in November.



Oh, re BernieBros, anyone remember ObamaBoys?

Now on to the Convention and then to the WH!

Congratulations to Sen. Sanders and his amazing supporters on his incredible Victories last night.

We are changing the face of politics in this country

6. Yes, War as a 'business opportunity' weak on torture, embedded with Wall St

supporter of policies that no Democrat should have ever supported. I admit to being unaware of many of her stands on issues.

I stopped supporting her after her vote for the Iraq War and a statement she made regarding torture.

The people I have helped sign up as Dems are doing so also, only so they can vote for Bernie. No amount of persuasion or amount of appeals from Hillary will cause them to vote for her. The Dem Party leadership has to face the reality that if she is the nominee they are going to lose the GE.

I am here because of Bernie Sanders. Otherwise I wouldn't have looked for a site to be with other Democrats.

I don't understand why anyone is supporting Hillary. She is what Occupy taught us to be against. A paid for minion of the 1% corporations. That she's not going to do their will is ludacris. I believe she'll support the people only when there is not a conflict of corporate interest first. Even then, I have not seen her be a liberal past supporting planned parenthood. She even voted against gays on that defense of marriage act.

156. The exact same words I used this morning ...

... in an email to a friend of mine living in Italy who wondered how the caucuses came out in Colorado yesterday.

"Clinton is the embodiment of everything I have been fighting against in politics."

I've been doing politics since 1968 and there is nothing I hate more than a 'Democrat' who caters and shills for the power elite, the bankers and super investors, for the monied class, for the military-industrial complex, for the corporatists, who cravenly plays Identity Politics ... in other words in 2016, Hillary Clinton.

I cut my political teeth on Watergate and Mrs. Clinton has a terrifying resemblance to me of Richard Milhouse Nixon.

We have a chance to save the nation with Sen. Sanders.
Let's not blow it.

At least your honest that you'd support Trump before you'd vote for Clinton (as failing to vote for clinton would be direct help for Trump). I think I understand better where you're coming from now. Bernie supporters keep saying Bernie is popular among some Republicans, and I can see that must be true.

260. The Clintons drove me from the democratic party.

 

I have MANY clues about them.. which is why I would never support her.

And since I live in California, not voting for Clinton is not support for Trump.. it is just not adding another vote to her.

Clinton is exactly what is wrong in the democratic party. They are the tea party democrats.

They represent the right edge of the party, much like the tea party represents the right edge of the republican party, BUT because they were #winning, even party moderates start to follow them.

The idea that a DEMOCRAT oversaw the destruction of Glass Steagal, Welfare Reform, and the Telecommunications Act of 1996 is unthinkable.. yet the democrats own them b/c of the Clintons.

258. Are you familiar with the dreadful 'Welfare Reform Bill' she was so proud of, and what it did and

is still doing to poor women and children? She DID create 'jobs' at slave labor wages for mothers who were punished by that legislation if they didnt 'act responsibly' you know, like she had to do, by cutting their welfare and providing cheap labor for her Corporate buddies, while those 'jobs' were often hours away and those children had to fend for themselves since their mothers could not be home lest they lose essential money to feed them.

Are you familiar with her statement on children of immigrants a few months ago at all? And with Bernie's? What a contrast.

She and her husband are RESPONSIBLE for the 'need for reform' in the Justice system, so it's hard to know if she has backed off her passionate support for more 'police on the streets' 'three strikes' which put thousands of non violent people in jail. For the Private Prison Industry? For 'tough on crime' but only on the poor, the drug laws and on and on.

I am stunned by people who are dems who supported ANY of these policies she has BOASTED about for so long and played such a huge role in getting votes for, she told us.

The dog whistling as she promoted the Welfare Reform Bill, confirming the Right Wing lie that it was AAs who were on Welfare, furthering Reagan's falsehood about 'Welfare Queens' when the truth was that more white Americans were on Welfare at the time

Why she was able to get Republicand on board, this was THEIR policies which THEY had failed to pass into law, now passed by a Dem administration.

And Women? I am a woman, I still don't see the main issue women care about anywhere near being accomplished, equal pay, nor do I recall HER even trying to get it passed.

A reminder of 2008 and where we Obama supporters stood then:



And then look at this:

Future Primaries looking good




No wonder the Hillary Campaign is trying to depress enthusiasm by asking Bernie's supporters to join her campaign!

5. Bernie is running a BRILLIANT campaign. He knew he could not do much in Confederate states and

didn't waste OUR money where it would do the least amoung of good. I am very grateful for the Bernie supporters in those states who came out against the odds and voted for him.

I believe that Hilliary's campaign's own internal polls are showing her how badly she will do in many of the upcoming primary states.

Bernie doesn't waste the people's time and money he respects the voters in states who he knows will not support him and moves on.

I hear Hillary has already overspent and doesn't have the monetary support Bernie has from the people.

138. Actually I was surprised at the last results I saw on Texas, he got 33% of the vote there,

way more than I would have thought. So it seems while the turnout was low, it would have been even lower if Bernie wasn't in the race.

Sad too for those good people who came out to vote for the Progressive Dem that they live in a state that is so Conservative.

But it looks like Bernie got the progressive vote there too. Bad sign for Hillary who so badly needs it and who clearly doesn't have it.

I ask because Early Voting in NC starts tomorrow, March 3, and NC still has same site day Early Voting registration. So if there are any college kids who want to vote for Bernie they might want to do that now if they have break coming up.

You probably already know that...but, just passing it along because some people in my area seem to be confused about whether NC'linians can still register and vote same day since the Legislature tried to do away with it...but, so far we are good.

When you are dealing with politics as usual. With Trump and Sanders the models used are totaly different. He has been off this time around because it is hard to predict turn out because voter demographics are off and so are way people vote. Take for example he can't take into Account African American votes because it was assumed they would vote less for Hillary because of how she treated Obama in 2008. You know realizing a photo of him wearing Muslim dress and Bill says that in another time period Obama would be carrying his bags. Or that hard working whites would not vote for Obama in GE so they should vote for her.Wow that kinda what she is doing in this primary.

It's amazing that she thinks we are that stupid, that we can't see what she sees, that if she does get the nomination, she cannot win the GE.

Bernie otoh with the backing of the Party and it's way past time they started doing that, will wipe the floor with all of the Republicans, no matter who their nominee is.

I am thoroughly so disgusted with her and her supporters as are MILLIONS of other voters, Moveon now has a petition to the DNC from Progressives btw, demanding that our Party stop blocking Bernie and supporting the candidate who cannot win.

So she will lose again,, learning nothing from last time. And that's fine by me.

87. Actually, California is the state with huge numbers of minorities.

White people are just another minority here.

It isn't about racism.

California is the most populous sub-national entity in North America. If it were an independent country, California would rank 34th in population in the world. It has a larger population than either Canada or Australia.[2] Its population is one third larger than that of the next largest state, Texas.[3] California surpassed New York to become the most populous state in 1962.[4] However, according to the Los Angeles Times, California's population growth has slowed dramatically in the 21st century.[5] In 2010, the state's five most populous counties were Los Angeles County, San Diego County, Orange County, Riverside County, and San Bernardino County, with Riverside County having the largest percentage increase in population.[6] The largest metro areas in California, as of 2010, are Los Angeles, San Francisco-Oakland, San Diego, Riverside-San Bernardino, and Sacramento.[7]

As of 2006, California had an estimated population of 37,172,015, more than 12 percent of the U.S. population. This includes a natural increase since the last census of 1,557,112 people (that is 2,781,539 births minus 1,224,427 deaths) and an increase due to net migration of 751,419 people. Immigration resulted in a net increase of 1,415,879 people, and migration from within the U.S. produced a net increase of 564,100 people. California is the 13th fastest-growing state. As of 2008, the total fertility rate was 2.15.[8]

No single racial or ethnic group forms a majority of California's population, making the state a minority-majority state. Non-Hispanic whites make up 40.1% of the population.[9] Spanish is the state's second most spoken language. Areas with especially large Spanish speaking populations include the Los Angeles metropolitan area, the California-Mexico border counties of San Diego and Imperial, and the San Joaquin Valley. Nearly 43% of California residents speak a language other than English at home, a proportion far higher than any other state.[10]

. . . .


California has the largest population of White Americans in the U.S., totaling 21,453,934 residents as of the 2010 census. The state has the fifth largest population of African Americans in the U.S., an estimated 2,299,072 residents. California's Asian population is estimated at 4.9 million, approximately one-third of the nation's estimated 15 million Asian Americans. California's Native American population of 362,801 is the most of any state; some estimates place the Native American population at one million.[citation needed]

As of 2011, California has the largest minority population in the United States. Non-Hispanic whites decreased from about 76.3 - 78% of the state's population in 1970[12] to 39.7% in 2011.[13] While the population of minorities accounts for 100.7 million of 300 million U.S. residents, 20% of the national total live in California.[14][15]

California is going to go for Bernie. We vote June 7 for 546 delegates to the Democratic convention.

Her campaigns are now MARKED by racism, because it is racist to USE AAs they despicable way her campaign did in 2008 and now. Clearly when you hire a Right Wing smear mongering Hit Man, a stupid one at that, this is what you get.

Her supporters at least should be ashamed to get behind that kind of right wing race baiting and many of them are which is why we are seeing so many AAs switching from her to Bernie

bullies who lord their status over and taunt other kids and make their lives miserable. Then, when the bully needs a favor, he becomes everybody's best friend and starts handing out candy.

As far as I'm concerned, they made their beds. Now they can lie in them.

17. There is simply no reality in what you are selling.

 

"The turnout was low among Dem voters and would have been even lower if Bernie was not in the race."

Take the number of people Clinton got to the polls yesterday over that of Sanders. Then add up all of Sanders victories. His total count in victories doesn't even cover the amount Clinton got to vote over him. It was that lopsided.

How in the world are you still trying to sell enthusiasm equals turnout for Sanders? It is a know fact that while Sanders does have enthusiasm it has no depth in numbers at all. No one is buying that anymore so lets just put it away instead of continuing to promote what many of us have understood as inaccurate for a long time.

26. I'm sorry, but Bernie TROUNCED her in states she as a Dem should have won easily

Dems and Indies and young people and women all came out in those states to vote for BERNIE. Had he not been in the race, like I said, Mn would have been a disaster turnoutwise. Same thing in Mass, where the result is now a virtual tie and hopefully there will be a recount.

Oklahoma, didn't expect a win for Bernie there, but the people CAME OUT for HIM.

Even in Texas 33% came out who would not have, had he not been in the race.

I'm not selling anything, these are facts. When all she can get re support is Conservative, Third Way votes in those states, her chances as polls show, of winning the GE are pretty dismal. She can't win without Bernie Dems and the way she and her campaign have been attacking Sanders and his supporters she has little chance of every gaining their votes, except for those who will force themselves out of fear of Repubs. But that number is now shrinking so as I said, she will lose the GE for us if she is the nominee.

We all know the Clintons have huge popularity in the south. We also know it's mostly red down there so it wouldn't make a lot of sense for Bernie to spend time and money there with those two factors against him. Where he is going to show "depth in numbers" and enthusiasm are the big blue states with a more educated population. That's just the fact. Good thing that's where we are headed. Think of seeing Bernie in your side-view mirror - objects may be closer than they appear!

Go Bernie!

32. See post #2 where I provided information you will find interesting. She only won states that

Progressives never win, and yet, even in some of them, people DID come out to vote for Bernie, 33% eg in Texas. Bernie knew not to waste resources on those Confederate states. The turnout was shamefully low for Dems other than those who came out to vote for Bernie.

I believe, absent dirty tricks which we are already seeing Bernie will win this. He is running a BRILLIANT campaign and his Victories last night are simply amazing. HE trounced Hillary in Mn, a state the Dem FR should easily win.

She got only 14% in the state that knows Bernie best.

I am thrilled with the results.

48. Hillary's campaign and her supporters have displayed incredible arrogance from the day Bernie

entered the race and VOTERS in this democracy decided to support him because he best represented them on the issues.

Now she is doing it again, along with her supporters. This IS a democracy, not a kingdom and to assume that after barely eeking out some victories, three of which are still questionable, she thinks she can dismiss the candidate who is BEATING her in the GE with a wave of her hand.

She attacked Sanders FALSELY on his EXCELLENT record on Women and Minorities and even when she received enormous backlash losing her support she badly needed neither she nor her supporters seem able to stop the nasty negative campaigning.

So her appeals now to those she so despises are nothing but insulting to our intelligence.

Bernie is going to win this so she might start thinking of the country and considering her own legal woes, maybe it is SHE who should suspend her campaign

The PEOPLE will keep on financing THEIR Campaign so long as he is willing to keep on fighting for us.

Hillary otoh, is dependent on a small group of donors and I have read that she can't go back to them anymore as they have donated the legal limit.

As more people JOIN Bernie's campaign, the more money he is raising.

Remember when he said he would need $40 million to run? Now he gets that in a month.

54. Many reasons not to give it.

 

1. Hillary supporters say $675k directly, $2.5mil to campaign aren't bribes and won't influence her. Well they conveniently ignore her selling her vote on the bankruptcy bill.

2. Hillary attacks Bernie on gun control by misleading and cherry-picking votes, but then quietly stops talking about gun control and raises money from NRA.

3. Hillary promises unions to fight the Colombia Free Trade Agreement, but her emails show she actively and secretly lobbied for it

4. Hillary deflects criticism about her being on the take by lying about Bernie, the one single honest candidate in the race specifically not taking corporate money. Seriously, how is this even possible?

5. Hillary refuses to release the transcripts. Her supporters brush it off as sexist to even ask her, or repeat the line that republicans need to release theirs first. Never mind that she is the one trying to say she'll regulate Wall St, not them.

6. Hillary doesn't take a progressive position until Bernie does, and then only goes halfway. Minimum wage? Bernie wants $15, Hillary says that is too much, so she'll do $12. Single-payer? Bernie wants it, she says it will "never, ever happen" even though she was for it before. It goes on and on.

7. Hillary blatantly lies during debates about Bernie wanting to get rid of Obamacare and start all over from scratch.

8. Hillary is a subject in an active FBI investigation. The FBI is not an arm of the republican party and her supporters will climb all over themselves to quote articles from mid-2015 or compare her case to Petraeus (who plead guilty) or spout talking points - the most egregious of which is to try to argue that because Colin Powell also had a private server, that it is ok.

9. Her campaign is staffed by Goldman Sachs, yet her supporters see nothing wrong with this.

10. She takes money from private prisons and was a primary actor in the Crime Bill. Her supporters, rather than defend her position, simply cherry-pick Bernie's vote as if to say "But he also did it" which would supposedly make it ok. Nevermind that he only voted for it, after much negotiation and getting things like the Violence Against Women and Assault Weapons provisions.

11. She championed welfare reform. Regardless of how you view the terminology she used while championing it, you can't deny the damage it did to people.

12. She is against bringing Glass-Steagall back, and argues that Dodd-Frank is enough. Nevermind that Glass-Steagall protected us for decades and the provisions she's citing from Dodd-Frank are after-the-fact solutions which won't prevent another crash. She's even walked back her language on using that, to carefully phrase that she'd only use it if the system had already collapsed and the bank posed a systemic risk.

13. She ran an overtly racist campaign against Obama in 2008, but now hides behind his accomplishments. Her supporters are just fine with this because she worked in the Obama administration and that somehow makes it all better.

Repubs in Nov as always. But where she NEEDED to win Bernie trounced her. Her ONLY demographic now is the Third Way wing of the party. Repubs won't support, Indies are for Bernie, women leaving her, minorities increasingly moving to Bernie as they learn about him.

She can't win without HIS supporters and unfortunately for her, since so many of them are only signing up as Dems, I know I've helped some of them to do so, to vote for Bernie she will not get those young people which Bernie has, as Obama did, overwhelmingly.

Bernie WON Super Tuesday with the votes that count for a Democrat. And even brought out supporters in Texas, 33% who otherwise would have stayed home, and elsewhere also.

Mn she got only 38% a state that should have been hers as the Dem front runner.

SHE knows she won little last night, why she is now asking Bernie's supporters to 'join her'. She knows she can't win without them.

See to me when you sign up with a party THAT IS WHO YOU ARE, until you decide that the party doesn't represent you and you leave.

The DAY you sign up as a Dem, you ARE a Dem. But then I'm not trying to explain away why Dems are leaving the Dem party, many have left over the past several years.

It's a solid investment, being that he is about the only politician in either party who gives a flying fuck about the poor and disabled in this country.

I wish I could trust Hilary when she says she will go after banks that are "Too Big To Fail". I'm very disappointed in her position on single payer healthcare for all Americans. I do believe she is beholden to big banks and will allow them to continue their greedy ways. With that said, if she wins the nomination, I will support her with my full enthusiasm, there is far too much to lose if a republican wins the Presidency!

I'm afraid that's never going to happen as we go forward in the primaries, she's looking at the polls and sees her support eroding while Bernie's continues to rise and the public gets to know him.

I am not worried at all about 'holding noses' the very tactic that has cause the slow disintegration of this country for ordinary people and sent trillions of OUR money into the hands of a few corrupt entities.

177. No, you are wrong and this is what has finally dawned on voters. WE played that game and enabled

the corporate takeover of OUR party by succumbing to the politics of FEAR. Those days are over now. Progressives will no longer TELL the Third Way leadership of this party, as we have so often before, 'we don't WANT your candidate but if that's our only choice, we will hold our noses and support her/him.'

I cannot think of a worse strategy than telling anyone that if they make sure you can't vote for the best candidate well, okay then, we'll go along with YOUR plans'. THAT is what allowed our party to be taken over by the likes of DWS.

It is OUR fault, the ones who DID vote, the wrong way.

So now, a new era has dawned, Progressives are sending a different message to the DNC and if they do not HEAR it AGAIN, they will lose us the White House as they lost us the Senate and Congress.

You can even succeed here on a relatively obscure political forum in scaring people into voting against their own interests. And if every DUer does that as they have in the past, it won't matter one bit in the Real World.

DWS and the rest of the Third Way leadership refused to LISTEN to voters in 2010 when they supported DINOS and mocked and ignored good Progressive Candidates refusing to help them at all.

The refused again to listen to voters in 2012, even after the voters sent them the first strong message that if they won't listen to the voters, the voters won't listen to them.

Now they are repeating this gross error in judgement and IF Dems lose the WH we know who will be responsible.

The PEOPLE are the ones who call the shots when it comes to elections. NOT a few wealthy operatives with an agenda.

But the people forgot that for a while.

The DNC can either stop attempting to block Sanders from winning this election, start backing him as they are supposed to do in a neutral way, stop PUSHING Hillary on voters, they've already lost over 12% of their membership since 2008, or they will get the full brunt of the anger of what's left of their base when they lose us the WH.

And I have never seen so many Democrats so angry at how the Dem party has treated them, ever.

I find it ARROGANT for a group of people to DEMAND our votes then tell us how retarded our ideas are, you know Democrats, once they get what they want.

And the vile and vicious and arrogant attacks by Hillary's campaign and from some of her surrogates and supporters on VOTERS confirms for me and now millions of others, that we have to stop enabling these people and assert OUR rights in this party.

I see it here on this Dem forum, the attitude 'we don't need you'. Actually yes, 'you' apparently do, but that's too bad because all the nastiness, in this and Hillary's last campaign has solidified for voters that its the other way around, we don't need THEM.

So I guess the old days of 'now let's wipe our wonnds and all get on board, forget the RACE CARD and GENDER CARD insults etc, 'cause we can't let the more evil guy win' are over.

I am glad to see that finally the Progressive wing of the party is demanding an end to the DLC picking our candidates and worse, trying to HARM the ones we pick.

WANTS division in the party, it's how they CONTROL and DISTRACT. I have no time at all for the race and gender baiters and don't waste a minute engaging them, you can't because they are not sincere, they have an AGENDA and it isn't equality, it's deception and I have to add, an obsessive hatred for the Left because the Left will not buy their garbage, doesn't fall for Smearmongers like David Brock and are not easy to manipulate.

I focus on those who unite, because we and THEY know that when the people are united, THEY LOSE.

So rather than waste a second on them, I focus on building on unity.

They are scared to death that we the people are going to win. Shattered by the fact that Bernie has gained so much support among Latinos and AAs once they get to know him.

There is a scent of desperation about their dragging up the old race card again even thought it failed so miserably in 2008 and again now.

Leave them to their hatred is my opinion, we don't have time for them. Meantime Bernie gains the support of AAs every day while they pout and throw their little temper tantrums for nothing.

They don't care about average Americans, they care about one the ambitions of one morally compromised individual, NOT the well being of the U.S. or planet as a whole. I've become convinced of this after spending months asking them why they support such a corrupt right wing pro-war pro-fracking pro-Monsanto pro-for profit prisons pro-Walmart candidate, and have gotten nothing more than crickets or insults in response. It's almost as if they've all been brainwashed. If they do have solid reasons for backing a candidate who can only win RED States in the primaries, then I'd like to hear them.

And if she is the nominee, then I'll back Jill Stein for President. I don't vote for right wingers.

we knew anyone with as little money and name recognition and the Democratic Machine against them, would have to climb.

But I was happy he decided to run. Hoped he would make it as far as the Fall but couldn't see how he could considering Hillary's huge stash of Wall St donations.

And then I watched how brilliantly he was running his campaign, and I did have to ADJUST EXPECTATIONS. Damn, it looks like he CAN WIN.

It is a happy adjustment so I'm not complaining.

He is telling the truth, that ONLY HE (see the poll in the OP) can beat Trump.

Thanks for your comment, I like to think about how low my expectations WERE and how much we've had to adjust them since.

He WILL beat Trump if the Repubs let him get the nomination, which I doubt, and he will beat any of their candidates which is why they want Hillary.

Bullhorn Bill should be post on social media along with anything else that confirms how far big money goes only to never quite get there.

Bernie's in it for everyone. We (imagine this) the social fabric that weaves and mends the thread bare democracy in this country are only now realizing how we can do this.

We shouldn't be dangerous to them, but they are scared of this fact. The establishment third way DLC should have seen it coming after all the years of bullshit candidates that were pre-ordained by the establishment, ever since the frankenstein creation of "super delegates".

for a recount.

The fact that Bill Clinton was ALLOWED to campaign outside of a polling station in violation of the law says it all, and with the compliance of the Mayor.

But we are told he didn't violate an law. I was thinking that we might want to TEST THAT LAW, campaign for Bernie in the exact same way he did and see what happens.

But you are right WE are going to win. This is a very different campaign season, people have reached a point of no return,, not willing to play their 'fear of the greater evil' game anymore. Progressives are collecting signatures in a Moveon Petition, demanding that either the DNC cleans up its act or 'we will not be voting for Hillary'. I doubt they will respond, but they are being warned, your chosen candidate can't win without us and she won't win with us after the vileness and ugly campaign they are running.

The list is now at 193 Bernie Dems I posted it a few days ago, since then I have to add two more.

And Tulsi Gabbard who has quit her position in the DNC and has endorsed Bernie also.

We have to keep them in Congress.

Her neoliberal economic and foreign policy positions are bad enough. But the swiftboating of Bernie's civil rights history opened my eyes to the sordid Machiavellian aspect of her campaign and of the candidate herself. No way will I reward that with my vote.

213. the cesspool that you guys wallow in has sent Hillary supporters

To greener pastures.

I hope one day they return, because you can always use a word of advice from veterans with war wounds.

253. Veterans are solidly behind Bernie because of the work he has done on their behalf in Congress.

I do listen to them and they support him for the same reasons we all do, he cares about people, he isn't bought and paid for.

What legislation did Hillary ever try to pass in support of Veterans?

Let me know if you want to see Bernie's success with even Republicans on behalf of Veterans. I believe I already posted an Op with endorsements from veterans of all wars for Bernie and a list of his accomplishments on their behalf.

Nice: 'cesspool' which would include millions of voters.

See this is why Hillary's request to Bernie's supporters to join her, will be rejected. Calling Voters names, milliions of them, isn't exactly a winning tactic.

You have a right to your opinion, and Hillary's supporters here have driven thousands of Democrats off this forum, I'm just stubborn and will not be bullied until the admins make an announcement that 90% of their membership are not welcome here.

We will then happily leave it to those who are driving voters away from the Dem Party. We've lost 12% of the Dem base thanks to this kind of bullying.

216. I must confess.

I didn't vote for then-Senator Obama because he had better policy positions on the issues.
I voted for him because of Obama Girl.
I thought she was HOT!!

223. Since we're doing comparisons

Comparing 2008 to 2016 so far,

Hillary has won 5x states in 2016 that Obama won in 2008 (Iowa, South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, and Virginia.)
She has lost 2x states in 2016 that she won in 2008 (New Hampshire and Oklahoma).

Counting only pledged delegate counts, if you flip the states from 2008 with the states from 2016, she'd have won.

224. I have voted for the Democrat almost

every in election since I could vote -- at this point over 30 years.

And I am amazed at the card stacking against Bernie from the party, not from another campaign, which I would total understand. It is one of the many reasons why I have been more vocal among my friends about -- Why Bernie? Because I think it is emblematic of the political issues we are having and that keep us chained to what seems to be "America's Next Multinational Spokesperson" and I would like to change the channel.

225. No. It's a "hold my nose" sort of thing for me.

No support, no money, no speaking up. Just a complete and utter lack of enthusiasm.

Among other things, there will be a steady drumbeat of scandals during her administration. Not all of which will be legit, but if the Republicans dig hard enough, there will be enough there to keep them going for a while. Unlike Obama, who has been scandal-free himself. I mean, how hard can it be to play by the rules? The Clintons have never been able to do that. Always cutting corners, always a little but shady.

Not Frank Underwood shady, but still. I'm not worried so much about the email thing, because I know that Colin Powell did something similar. It is the quid-pro-quo stuff with the Foundation that is worse. It just smells.

It will never happen. She is a part of the problem, not the solution.

236. Anyone who has a stake in the ways things are going today opposes Sanders

If you look at the list of endorsers, etc, lining up for HRC you see person after person and group after group who have vested interests in keeping this sham going.

Some, like Goldmine Sucks, have obvious interests in the status quo which makes it possible for them and other Wall Street HRC backer to destroy our (and the world's) economy. (If you haven't seen THE BIG SHORT yet what are you waiting for, and why?)

Senators and Congresscritters, Governors and DNC officials all have obvious stakes in keeping the game going. Others are afraid of the animosity the HRC camp shows towards anyone who doesn't toe their line. HRC opponents in Congress and State Houses can count on a really difficult time during the Third Clinton term. Obama supporters who think HRC is really going to continue his advances are due for a rude awakening.

They remind me of the South Pacific islanders who reportedly listened to Christian missionaries and decided the smart money was with Satan. Jesus, they figured, would forgive them for their choice; Satan never would. Me, I think that whole thing is a fantasy but love to use it as an analogy.

(no, potential alerters, I'm not calling HRC the Devil. I don't believe in the Devil

238. As someone who leans Clinton, please leave the Bernie people be.

Even I agree that the message needs to keep being spread and that only happens with a debate of the issues.

Don't alienate them, listen to them.

Yes, we're gonna all need one another come November, but there are a number of primaries to be had.

Don't call something before its over.

245. A March 1st Poll From CNN

Showing a strong Bernie lead against all comers while Hillary, incredibly, only beats Trump.

Dems vs Trump:
Clinton 52 - Trump 44
Sanders 55- Trump 43

Dems vs Rubio:
Clinton 47 - Rubio 50
Sanders 53- Rubio 45

Dems vs Cruz:
Clinton 48 - Cruz 49
Sanders 57- Cruz 40



Electability is everything!

him? Do they WANT a Repub President? Don't care about the SC? It's clear Hillary is not going to win the WH so continuing to make sure she wins the nomination is political suicide imo
