7. I feel the same way I did months ago....

...and the same way I did when she was running against Obama.

She'll get my vote because Trump is so goddamned awful. But I still don't like her. I don't like her as a politician. I don't like her public persona. I don't trust her one bit.

I won't donate to her or the DNC if doubling down on military friendly economic centrism is where the party establishment is staking it's claim. I won't make one phone call on her behalf. I won't stuff one envelope. I won't even be bothered to argue with anyone who doesn't like her and are saying they won't vote for her. There's no way I'd be able to provide a convincing argument beyond "Trump sucks." and even that is more of my time than I feel Hillary is worth.

Sure there are still "what if"'s such as who her running mate is. But given how the Democratic party has been ravaged by the cancerous third way, sensible centrist dems, other than Elizabeth Warren or Russ Feingold (neither of which are going to happen), I can't imagine who she'd pick that would actually get me excited or be able to overlook her myriad flaws.

I'll take "No fucking clue" for 500 Alex! nt retrowire Jun 2016 #1
