    It truly is scary that one of these two clowns will actually become POTUS!
    Totally entertaining but truly scary at the same time.

    On paper HRC is one of the most qualified ever. The only modern president that was more qualified on paper was Bush 1.

    I don't think her problem is her qualifications for the job
    she's been around it for long enough that she knows the deal

    her problem is she seems to want it all so badly that she'd murder a small child if it got her the job

    • Let Obama stay in office another year
    • Start the entire nomination process all over again
    • See if we do any better

    Jesus. Dude, turn your tv off, and go for a walk. Watch the baseball games. This election isn't for you.

    Hillary is the most qualified POTUS candidate in the history of our nation.

    The partisan forces on both sides are controlling the public debate so much that everyone is overlooking a scary fact: no matter who wins the election, America - and the world - are in for four rough years.

    I don't think there's been a decent candidate at the top of either ticket since 1980.

    Info tainment journalism.

    Trump is unqualified but made it entertaining, confusing many.

    HRC is qualified but has tons of baggage that normally would have derailed her.

    How did we get here? Well, I think it has a lot to do with the advent of the "information age", talk radio and cable news outlets. Small things that a person said or did years ago become hot topics and are angrily debated for hours on end. God forbid that a republican reach across the aisle to reach a compromise with a democrat, he would be pilloried in the forums, on radio shows, etc. In short, governing has become a tremendous hassle. Why would anyone want to have their entire past scrutinize like this? Private lives aren't private any longer. I sure would not to run for office, too much fodder. That leaves egomaniacs like Trump or career ladder climbers like Mrs. Clinton. As I have posted elsewhere, we voters have got to demand that the outlets focus on issues and results and leave the gossip out of it.

    Trump is unqualified.

    Clinton sucks, but is not unqualified.

    Speaking strictly on their resumes, both have valid qualifications. Hillary has done enough public service and foreign policy work to qualify, and Trump has plenty of executive experience running his empire.

    Now the skeletons in their closets and their lack of actual talent, that's another issue.
