About Me

I am a disgruntled former DU member. Most people here are fine, but the site is ruined by zealous Hillary supporters. DU took my money and put my account on everlasting review. Cowards. Dishonest cowards.

I think we're going to be OK, president-wise.

The pundits lie to remind us that Hillary Clinton is sometimes annoying, not able to fire up the crowd, not inspirational, too much of a policy wonk, not always tuned into her audience, etc, etc, etc. Yes, those things are true, to some extent, depending on the context, but this does not make her "not a good candidate," as some of them like to conclude. She's good enough. If you didn't know either candidate, and your first impression of them was the debate last night, how would you vote? Personally, I would not be enormously inspired to vote for either one, but I would resolve not to vote for Trump. I think most reasonable people would reach the same conclusion, assuming their introduction to both candidates was last night.

I hope our candidate puts more emphasis on the "vision thing." This is what emphasizes the difference between her and the other guy. The whole "Make America Great Again" theme implies some sort of plan, program, something to make the dream come true. But Trump's speeches and debate performance reveal it's just a pipe dream, with no substance, no "vision thing." This creates a huge opportunity for Clinton to convince voters her dream is achievable, and will make a difference for them.
