Ok....I've made up my mind.....I can't support Hillary... [View all]

First off, I am not a "basher" nor do I have a political axe to grind, these points are STRICTLY my opinions.

I'm not ready for for "The Clinton Experience" again. I got so sick of the Iras and the Mandys , and the Lannys
and the Susans that I almost got sick of politics.

I feel like she thinks it's some sort of Manifest Destiny
that entitles her to the White House. I'm not ready for more of the obfuscation, hazy facts, double speak
that plagued Bill's final term. Most importantly, I just can't trust her. Is she a hawk or dove ?...is she a liberal Democrat
or a "Third Wayer" ? , is she pro-Palestine or pro-Israel ? She just seems "slippery" to me. I just can't shake the feeling that
her agenda is not about advancing America, as much as it is advancing Clintonism.

Thanks for letting me voice my opinions without certain posters going into attack dog mode.
