"Fired Up...Ready To Go v 2.0"

Hillary's Judgement

The Sanders campaign has been trying to find it's way through the NYDN ambush, Clinton's campaign new gameplan, and it's reaction to it. I could understand his "qualified" argument, in that I referred to my military service and our qualification system. Where you can be qualified for a position, but due to job performance you too can lose those qualifications. Nobody can deny that Hillary has an impressive resume and that she meets the Constitutional requirements for the office of President. But, her job performance and decision making abilities based on her past judgements, could lead some to consider if she's 'qualified' for the position anymore.

This is not, despite Fmr. Pres. Clinton's argument, a sexist notion...it is a responsible one! Timing is a very important part of Presidential politics. She might eventually arrive at the best position to stand, but we don't have the time to wait until she get's there anymore! In '08 Obama defeated Hillary, in part, due to "The Fierce Urgency of Now"....after 8 yrs. for many of us, it's only gotten worse!

Obama didn't accept campaign contributions from lobbyists, Hillary doubles down on her failed '08 campaign stance and accepts them, and also takes $ from God only knows who, for her PAC...this is, IMHO, her most glaring bad decision in the past 12-18 mos.

The speaking fees...

Her home server, that she herself has said she'd do differently now.

The list goes on & on, but we shouldn't be talking about any of them...because none of them would've happened had Hillary met her moment, stepped up to plate and ran back in '04 when she was the Democratic, no slight to John Kerry, ROCKSTAR.

For whatever reason....she chose to remain Sen. from NY...and history is what it is. But, before you flame me...there is no doubt in my mind that Hillary would've been a great President in 2004, but now in 2016....not so much...her decision not to run in '04 is simply added to her other bad decisions, before and after, that fall directly into Sen. Sanders argument of judgement, or "qualifications"

"The Fierce Urgency Of Now" has morphed into "Feel The Bern", but it's still the same fire burning inside of us...and we still are...FIRED UP...READY TO GO!!

YES WE CAN!!

here's a post in KOS from a few months ago that I found researching this...enjoy!!
