19. Cool. The primaries are over and we all have to get behind Clinton now.

Because as you say, it is utterly unthinkable for us to allow a maggot like Trump anywhere near the White House and the nuclear football. That would just be stupid.

I loved what Obama said during his speech, didn't you? "We aren't done perfecting the union yet!"

I learned some things about Hillary that made me think much better of her. Yes, she still has some baggage, but much of that is the doing of the right wing noise machine. She actually IS qualified to be President, and will quite likely do a really good job, leaving the union a bit more 'perfected' than it was when she stepped in.

You all know from earlier posts of mine that at this point I'm voting FOR Clinton rather than AGAINST Trump. I think Bill Maher said it best when he said, "The Clintons are never going to be the first ones there, but they will get there."

The best thing that happened with the primaries is they gave Clinton permission to move a bit to the left, which is, I think, more how she actually feels. She will do fine and has my support.

Trump does not. He is an odious and malignant narcissist who shouldn't even be in the political arena because he cares NOTHING for anything or anyone but himself.
