42. Drop the 'hate' garbage. I have met Hillary Clinton and as a person liked

her very much. I have lots of friends I like also, but hate their political beliefs.

She is way to the right on foreign policy and that is going to make her unacceptable to a whole lot of people whose votes will be needed to win. Republicans despise her so I don't know where the 76% approval rating came from. They will never get beyond their hatred for Clinton so there would be no hope of any significant crossover votes.

Left leaning Independents are opposed to her foreign policies and that leaves the base. The base is split on Clinton.

We are not a monarchy. We have millions of talented people in this country, people with great progressive credentials and leadership qualities. We don't have to keep recycling the same few people for decades, especially since their policies have not be that great for this country.

30 years of the same family is more than enough. We need new energy in this party. This was never meant to be a life time career, quite the opposite, nor was it meant to be a dynasty, a very dangerous threat to any democracy.

The closeness of the Clintons to the Bushes is another very disturbing factor. No to Hillary, yes to Warren or Grayson or any number of other great potential candidates.
