    Hillary got screwed by the party when Obama won and this is the make good from the DNC. Bernie is there to give the illusion of choice and its his last chance due to his age.

    Elizabeth Warren is waiting in the wings if/when Hillary isn't viable any more.

    I guess I'm jaded but I think it was already determined who will be President. This is just a dog and pony show.
    As I get older I get more disgusted.

    Hillary is the pre-packaged, chosen candidate. It wasn't supposed to be contested...."her turn"

    Bernie is a sign of people's frustration....As is Trump on the right

    The Democrats are smarter than the Republicans. The job has become a complete shit show. Nobody with an ounce of common sense on the left wants it besides Hillary and her ego and Bernie and his somewhat unrealistic idealism.

    Imagine your first day on a new job with a big company; they hand you your laptop, phone, and email login info. You then respond, "no thanks, I will use my own equipment and own email server. I won't be following your document retention policies either."

    Dial "O" for O'Malley.

    Here's the part where Ingrid Bergman beats the shit out of a young John F Kennedy.

    All choices (but 1)had to do with RELIGION
    only Socialist was poliitical.

    I know Iam a trump supporter,but could someone explain to me who will actually vote for clinton? There is a huge stink with the email scandal, and then we have wild bills affairs where all sorts of allegations have been made, not just about him but how she strongarmed these women. You think especially if trump wins the republican nomination ,he won't exploit it to the max,he will not play by any rules . Can she really rely on women to turn out on mass to vote for her? You think any men with any testosterone will rush to vote for her?

    She also has zero charisma, she will always be 'wife of', and she reminds far too many I think about certain kinds of women who are power crazed and stay with husbands they hate because they love the trappings of that power. I bet she was only mad at bill over his affairs because he was stupid enough to get caught in the media gaze. She seems a profoundly unattractive candidate and it is no surprise to me that someone as mediocre as Barack Obama 'stole' an election from her.

    Even the biggest of retards on here have pretty much all said they agree she is a worthless lying, self serving cunt but that they would vote for her over a Republican.
