Response to Proud liberal 80 (Reply #14)

16. That's a false dilemma, in my mind.

Every one of those people is stale or unelectable. The Democrats desperately needed someone new to shake things up. Obama did just that.

A Clinton should never run for anything again, in my opinion. We need new ideas, or at least need to look like we're trying.

Clinton is the very reason Trump got nominated, imo. Of all people, the Democratic Party opted for the poster child of career politicians in the publics' minds.

It's too late now. I'm behind Clinton 100% and will cast my vote for her. On the other hand, the election shouldn't be anywhere near this close. How did a knuckle-dragging, orange-haired sideshow clown get to be the nominee, or dare I say it, possibly President?

As he rose in the ranks, we pointed and laughed. Nobody took him seriously. They still don't. The concept of a Trump /Pence White House is too terrifying to imagine.
