93. So you don't want a campaign based on the records of the candidates then? THEY are responsible for

the stands they have taken on important issues, and campaigns are supposed to let voters know where they stood and stand on issues.

I know it must seem very negative to point out how so very often Hillary has been so very, very wrong on major issues, and I suppose it is. But that is not SANDERS FAULT. Surely you're not saying she should not take responsibility for her positions on issues, such as the Iraq War, Gay Rights, Welfare Reform, Wall St crimes, the Prison Industry etc. Are you SERIOUSLY blaming Sanders for what she did?

If you find it all so negative, and it sure was for those who suffered under the policies she supporters, then maybe like me, you need a different candidate. It's why I support Sanders, on every issue where Hillary was so tragically wrong he got it right. It makes it a lot easier when your candidate has be so great with such a long record, on the issues.

Hillary otoh, has been extremely personally nasty which can only be expected when you take advice from the likes of Wall St donors, yes they told her campaign manager to attack Sanders. Or David Brock, Right Wing smear monger, career smear monger. Or Henry Kissinger, no that's not a personal attack, she herself has stated how much she admires him.

I guess you're right, it's hard to run a positive campaign against someone whose record on issues, the people she aligns herself with, the Bushes too. You would have to say nothing at all about issues.
