I need your help!

I'm a Democrat that has not decided who my Primary vote will go for. I think it's too early to consider sticking with ANY candidate (come hell or high water) with the vote far off, and no debates.

I know their bad points, bad views, bad votes, etc.

In this thread, in a tweet-compliant (?) message (I am not a twitter-er? so I don't know the length, only that they are relatively short), please give me one positive vote for the Candidate of your choice. It does not necessarily have to be YOUR candidate. Just something positive that I can google.

Please, no negativity. Let's be positive. We have 10 times the talent in our Candidate Pool as the Repubs do.

I probably won't say "THanks!" on each post, so please accept this as my Thanks in Advance!

1. There is a real need to continue the polcies President Obama has started, to continue to fight

to have ACA active in every state and perhaps other improvements, to continue with the fight to place the US in good standing in the world, the next president will have a great footing in continuing the work. I personally think Hillary Clinton has the ability to continue the good works of President Obama, she worked on his cabinet and as SOS. She was been a long time advocate of women's issues not only in the US but worldwide. She has worked to improve the lives of children in providing education, health care and the ability of preparing them for their adulthood. She has worked for Civil Rights issues, some things has changed but we are not at the end of the road yet. More needs to be done.

One of the things I have been impressed with is to date she has received 118 current Congressional members and 15 former members of Congress, these are people who have worked side by side with them, apparently she has impressed them. Says a lot.

3. Martin O'Malley said this today:

'Today, I stood with the many men and women who are fighting to unionize at the Trump Hotel Las Vegas.

In every generation, New Americans have made our economy stronger and made our economy better. If we want our economy to grow, we need to treat our workers with dignity and respect.'

4. The American public

is disgusted with the federal government. This is demonstrated by the support for Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders and the activity of the #blm movement.
Bernie Sanders is the only candidate of the two major parties not tied to the wealth of Wall Street. He is a candidate of and for the people.

5. Good. Keep on looking, reading, and thinking.

 

I no longer even click on a thread if the title looks like candidate bashing. Which means I'm reading a lot less of DU than I used to, but that's my choice.

I don't thinking the negative stuff about a candidate, any candidate, should be what you base your choice on. Look at the positive aspects of each, what they say they'll do in the future, what they did in the past. People can, and do, change their minds about things, although you may have to weigh whether such a change reflects political expediency.

Hang in there.

6. To be honest,

if you are really trying to learn about the candidates in order to make a choice, it would probably be more productive to go read the candidate's group forums. GD is more about negative campaigning than anything else these days.

That said, what are you looking for in a candidate?

7. In brief:

Hillary is intelligent, progressive, experienced, shrewd, and best positioned to bring it home for Dems next November.
