38. Wins/losses have been too close to call "wins" in most cases. Discuss issues - not horse race.
Sat May 14, 2016, 06:53 PM
May 2016

Our country is very divided. Pretty evenly. So why not more discussion of issues over the horse race? In the end, the math is pretty unimportant. We will have a President that will or will not reflect the issues the majority of voters think important. Too many Clinton supporters do not or cannot discuss the issues. Why do you think she's the best? What will she do for us? That's all I want to know. But no HRC poster seems to be able to get through a thread without posting distractions.

No one cares. You still lost. HA HA. Gomez163 May 2016 #1
