Vote Hillary! Rest assured, the email problem is NOT an issue.

You see, it's not the private emails that were the problem (because everyone else was doing it). It was the fact that she had a private server. This is completely bogus and only raised because the first problem was refuted (just like the original witch-hunt focused on Benghazi). If private email was accepted, it makes no difference where the server was.

Hillary has been in some sort of public office most of her life now. Does anyone ever recall any issues with her handling of classified information before? And the real leaks in the past decade were not even through Hillary.

We fall into the GOP hands when we listen to their approach on trying to find issues to destroy candidates.

92% alignment with Bernie's positions, 90% with Hillary, 40% with Trump

Those were my scores on how my positions align with the leading candidates.

So for me, both Bernie and Hillary agree with me far more than they disagree.

Why would I, being of sane mind, ever consider voting for someone like Trump if my first Democratic pick isn't nominated. The other one is so close to my positions I would jump to support that candidate.

"Our biggest fears are now tragically confirmed with civilians being directly targeted while trying to flee to safety," NRC Country Director in Iraq Nasr Muflahi said.

If Bernie was leading in SuperDelegates

but behind Hillary in Pledged delegates, and with the superdelegates he would win the nomination, would he disqualify himself because superdelegates are undemocratic?

If the answer is no, I am seriously disturbed by the hypocrisy
