I do not know how some of you feel about Mrs. Clinton being the Democratic nominee but

to me, she is excessively better than a Donald Trump Presidency. Not voting for her is a lesser of two evils but this time the lesser of two evils is not Mrs. Clinton.

Do not let the conservatives win again, America is progressive and change is necessary. Even if you have to hold your nose and vote for Mrs. Clinton, that would be a good vote. Just my opinion!

4. Me too, looking at the polls not good right now, but there are months to go.

I just keep thinking that Trump will change his message and get moderate democrats to vote for him. But for now, I am rooting for Mrs. Clinton, she is 100% better than Trump. It reminds me of the year when Dukakis ran!

Keeping fingers crossed.

14. I think...

... If there is anyone who ever had an inkling of a thought that Hillary Clinton was anywhere near the same as trump, then they were being completely irrational. That some have come around and found their ability to think critically again is not really something to be congratulated on because, logically speaking, the need should never have arisen in the first place.

5. Mrs. Clinton is not evil just that some Americans do not trust her but between her

and Trump, I would vote for her in a heart beat. She seems to have come around a bit with embracing some of Mr. Sanders ideology. Anyways, I want her to win.

6. Am sorry! Was not trying to engage in an argument with you about Mrs. Clinton or Mr. Sanders.

Have a good night!

7. Hillary Clinton is not evil at all

 

It is easier to see when the hangover from RW smears wears off.

8. ^^^This!!!

One of the many RWNJ talking points spewed during the primary against her by staff of the opposition, was that she was evil incarnate. Now that we're past the primary, hopefully the more reluctant will be willing to look PAST the campaign rhetoric which kept regurgitating the RW smears, and actually LOOK at where it originated.

She's not the "lesser of two evils", and for that matter, she's not evil at all, as one can see if they actually LOOK at what she's fought for as an adult.

11. Clinton is a fighter and will take it to the enemy, the con man Trump

 

and beat him and the Republicans.

If everyone gets together, we can certainly take back the Senate, and make progress on the House.

13. I'm wondering if people know what the expression "the lesser of two evils" means.

It means the best of two bad choices. Like choosing Newt Gingrich over Sarah Palin for VP. When it's used in the choice between Trump and Clinton, it doesn't make sense. Either people don't know what it means or they do and are saying Republicans and Democrats are the same, which obviously they are not and as this is a board for Democrats, not very nice.

15. That's a confusing post. So, you're saying that Hillary is "evil" ... just not as evil as Trump?
