Smugness in Hillary Clinton camp really should be embarrassment

This is the 2nd go round for Hillary Clinton's run for President of the United States. Her husband was President of the United States. They have carefully strategised her rise to be able to be a viable candidate. She has all of the "connections" that she needs and an awesome political advisor and example in Bill Clinton, yet

A candidate who isn't suave, glamorous, doesn't have the funds from all of the super Pacs, and every other financial source allowed, the total backing of the DNC, (hell they scheduled the debates to get the least amount of coverage possible). Bernie Sanders is under a media blackout. People don't really know who he is and what he stands for. He is virtually an unknown.

Yet I see time after time people calling for his withdrawn. As though it is fair to somehow take away the choice of the people in this country. The "powers that be" have already pretty much done all that they can to do this already. Yet the voters of Hillary Clinton see nothing wrong with this....unless it would be happening to their candidate.

With all of this going on, Bernie Sanders is gaining momentum and the word is STILL GETTING OUT!. This is remarkable. Bernie Sanders is not done. What is tragic here is the people that are playing right into the upper 1% hands. It is beyond pathetic..

Great write up from "Real. Progressives"

By the same logic, Martin Luther King Jr. was "pie in the sky", as was Nelson Mandela and every other transformational leader in the world. Hillary is a status quo neocon, bought and owned by corporations, banks, the military/industrial complex, and big pharm...so she has to convince you real change is impossible--her donors are depending on her to do THEIR bidding, not yours. Don't fall for the fear tactics. How she has voted in the past speaks volumes more than the promises she makes today. We all have a once in a lifetime opportunity to vote in all of OUR BEST INTERESTS ... instead of for one of two corrupt establishment candidates. Real change is only possible if we vote for it and don't fall for the scare tactics and premature calls for Bernie to give up and unite behind Hillary. If we do, she wins and we lose everything. If we stand strong and vote with our hearts for Bernie, she will lose. She has the media, corporations, big pharm, neocons, the military/industrial complex, her own media propaganda, huge corporate & pac donations, and the entire political establishment doing everything in their power to prevent Bernie Sanders from becoming president. In spite of this, Bernie's support continues to grow, the crowds continue to swell, and he continues to raise huge amounts of money entirely from small donations--all largely thanks to an educated grassroots that is doing everything in their power to get his message out. We are working for Bernie for one simple reason: he is working for all of us. His long record of consistent beliefs and voting shows he will not let us down; we cannot and will not let him down. Stay strong, focused, and don't be distracted or misled by mainstream media fear tactics. #FeelTheBern, #GetOutTheVote and work your buns off for the one candidate who will work tirelessly for all of us.

I found this clip about the need of Bernie Sanders economic idea and a reason why it is so good

That I posted this link. The 1st part is interesting but not what I was referring to. It is the second part. I don't know if this has been posted before, if so I APOLOGIZE.

The Democratic Party in 2016 Primaries is either going to completely morph into a new

Political party that is nothing like the traditional Democratic Party of the 60's and 70's or is will be resurrected and we will be blessed with the Democratic values of the JFK, RFK, HHH and LBJ days.

Those prominent Democrats who stood for real Democratic values would not recognize the Democratic Party today. Bernie Sanders is the only one who is still holding onto their values and that can keep the Democratic Party Democratic.

What is the difference in the ideology of the Democrats of the 70's/80's and now?

I see how so many people support Hillary Clinton and I cannot imagine why. She doesn't really stand for traditional Democratic values. She is too pro corporation, pro bank, too hawkish and not enough civil rights.

I see a Republican when I see her. A more old fashioned Republican not a Democrat, at least not as much Democrat as I would like to see.

Back as far as the 60' s Democrats were marching against Vietnam and holding rallies and sit ins. They were fighting against senseless wars not talking about having them. Regime change is what you call it now. We didn't have the banks running this country, corporations stealing jobs, a stagnant minimum wage........that was the Democrats platform worker's right, staying out of wars, civil rights, building education....

Today we are looking at a different Democratic Party.......at least with Hillary Clinton we are so far. What does the Democratic Party stand for today, because so far I don't think that many of those who support Hillary Clinton are not really whole whole hearted Democrats.

If Bernie Sanders didn't have a media blackout and all of the elections were fair

I believe that we would be looking at our candidate for President of the United States.

There really is no telling how much Bernie Sanders could have done from the beginning if the playing field was level. The way it should be. The fact that he has done this well with a media blackout proves it. He has managed to raise money for his campaign by his supporters, not the corporations, super packs and other games used to buy elections. He has shown everybody how campaign financing should work and how it can work and why we need it to choose our candidates....in the open. He has shown us, under a media black out, that he can inspire thousands of people to come to his rallies to see him and hear him speak. That effort for those supporters show just how much they care for their candidate. If there wasn't a media blackout on Bernie Sanders I am sure he would get infinitely more votes at the polls. People just haven't had the exposure to him to know who he is.

Donald Trump gets so much air time that it is pathetic. Hillary Clinton gets quite a bit too as well as Cruz. It has been proven the the media exposure directly relates to the votes.

This primary season has been one of a kind.

I will believe this until I die though, Bernie Sanders would, hands down be our candidate now if it wasn't for the media blackout and some very suspicious primaries. It is horrible that in a country as great as ours, we have elections as terrible as these are becoming.

I APOLOGIZE. I started a tread that was written by RW publication

My longtime activist friend led me to the link that I shared here. I am taking full responsibility. I did further investigation on the site and you on DU were right.

While are opinion ions may be totally opposite of each other at times, I do want them to be based on truth and not severe bias, especially fro GOP.

Is Hillary Clinton running for Bill Clinton's 3rd term?

It is fair to say that Bill Clinton will be a close advisor to Hillary. How close is the question.

There obviously a law that states there can only be 2 terms for the President of the United States.

What if the spouse is elected? What limitations, restrictions and or guidelines are in place for this situation?

I cannot imagine any that would lead to solid evidence that could be proven. How could Pillow talk be used as evidence and why would pillow talk be used for evidence.

I cannot see Bill Clinton being a traditional 1st lady or even being a "progressive" 1st...whatever. It might be considered an asset. Then again it might be considered a "bait and switch"

Bill Clinton was impeached over a minor lie by the House

Hillary Clinton has a problem with full disclosure and the truth...investigations in progress.

If she were to "win" the nomination, the GOP will dog her relentlessly on these issues and more. Her history of dishonesty and aversion to full disclosure will just make this worse.

In a Preisdency with Hillary Clinton this country will be frozen in gridlock just as it was with President Obama unless some slick deals are made behind closed doors. Will they benefit the American people or the Clinton's coveted 2nd term?
