Help a Bernie Supporter out [View all]

So, these past 2 weeks have been an emotional roller coaster for me.

I've settled now and am firmly feeling that Hillary has my vote in November. Trump is shit.

But I have a problem, it's an honest one and I hope you can help me.

For the past year I've learned and known many things that are wrong with Hillary.

But I want to know the good things she's done that I have been purposefully casting aside as "not enough".

I want to know the accomplishments and beneficial things she has done so that when I cast my vote for her in November, I can feel a little bit better about doing so.

Please don't hate me for being honest.

Thank you.


ETA: NO I didn't see the convention and haven't watched TV in over 6 years lol.
