I hope the Hillary camp is ready for the sh*t that is about to hit the fan from the NEW Trump team.

Really stunned that Kelly would sully herself by traveling around with Trump but...I am sure she is going to get a good pay check (unless he stiffs her and only pay 70% of what was promised).

The media actually is all excited because they were running of things to attack Hillary with.

I just hope she continues to talk to people in town halls and small groups. Her messages go over much better without a lot of screaming and hollering. She can let her ads speak for her int he swing and red states. I do believe she has little to worry about in the solid blue states. Trump has said enough and done enough in his past to screw over people that just showing his history ought to be enough.

I do believe that the questions for the debates will somehow find their way to the Trump campaign a head of time. Hillary needs to learn the art of deflection and re-framing better so that she can fight Trump on his own game.

1. What's refreshing about DU?

It's such an awesome 180 from the media memes about the Clintons being top notch professional campaigners.

It's like - they are 'brand new' at DU and that's an awesome thing!

2. Part of that vaunted Cllinton campaign organization

no doubt involves being ready for just about any contingency that may arise.

No way Team Hillary is going to be surprised by anything thrown their way.

7. They have Obama on board.

The same Obama that is probably the most brilliant campaigner of my lifetime.

3. If anyone can handle slime thrown by the republican party, it's Hillary

he has had 30 years of experience doing so. And the public finally, FINALLY, has begun to see through the slime. Over time, repubs have managed to desensitize thinking people to the various forms of their vendetta against her.

4. Trump can't control himself for long. His bluster and lack of actual knowledge . . .

will make him blow up at some point during the debates.

Hillary will defeat him badly.

It'll make us remember the President's cool, calculated "Please proceed, governor" remark to Romney.

I'll have my popcorn ready.

5. It is going to get ugly in the next few days.

 

Key to watch for are Op-Eds appearing in Gannett and Sinclair owned Newspapers. Ailes and Rove were masters at use e-mail form letters that could be forwarded to various Newspapers.

The Clinton campaign has had to deal with this crap before,this time,they have a strike team in place to challenge any and all of these so called stories.

6. This is Hillary we're talking about, she's ready

If it were any other candidate, including Sanders, I might be worried, but we're talking about the Clintons here, they've had mud slung at them non stop for 25 years, they are always 2 steps ahead and nothing Bannon tosses their way will give them trouble or catch them off guard.

The public is already past saturation when it comes to Clinton mud, the email stuff no longer even causes anyone to raise an eyebrow, it's all seen as partisan nonsense now.

And another thing, the Breitbartization of the Trump campaign is going to cause the Republican Party to turn on Trump entirely. Mainly, I doubt the House tries to grand stand this Fall by pulling Hillary in for questions about the FBI investigation now.

9. HRC goes over better when she isn't "yelling and screaming"?

Glennward believes she has "little to worry about in SOLID BLUE STATES?"

HRC needs to learn to debate to come up to the level of a dysfunctional buffoon?

Ahhh, didn't even get to finish before Glennward was banned. Well, I'm sure he'll be back soon under a new name.

Just pleasure in expression of malice? Bizarre and yuck.

10. Another 'concern' post.

I hate them so much. The bottom line is every one of them...is hinting that Hillary just isn't good enough. Ah well, here is the obligatory fainting couch...

15. Hillary has won many debates so far. Even in 08 when multiple people were running, only Obama bested

 

her, and that too not at every debate. I really think debates are a non-issue to worry about.

what i worry about is another fake scandal, because a lot of voters are dumb and buy into every stupid scandal the right wing creates
