i dont, though i imagine trump's immigration policy will be mostly DOA with so many stakeholders relying on cheaper labor coming to the states. otherwise, intervening killer drone lady who is all about govt secrecy is a well understood evil.

i imagine republicans and her will work pretty well on foreign policy and erosion of privacy. at least with trump there might be a facade of resistance and a public conversation but liberals will probably fold on profiling because :911:

So apparently Hilldawg's phone banking system allowed literally anyone to register an account and make calls on behalf of her campaign, access names/addresses/phone numbers of everyone in the database, and enter new data. And 4chan used it as their personal playground for six hours.

No one wants Hillary, not even her own party. She just happens to know all the dirt, where all the bodies are buried, all the corruption. And this is the last time she can possibly even try to be president, she's already falling apart at the seams. So in the little corrupt government mafia, it's her turn, to stroke herself by being first woman president.

It's a dumb article but to be fair there are multiple paragraphs illustrating what the author likes about Clinton, starting with "Clinton is pro-choice" and ending somewhere around "shrewd, savvy, tough politician."

I just don't really believe Clinton is going to enact those policies nor do I particularly think progressive social policy is all that matters.

Sharing (hopefully! she only recently decided Gay Marriage is ok!) the same political views you'd expect of any major Democrat running for office is definitely a 'totally rules' feel.

HRC aside I have no confidence that the Dems have the guts to really get anything done in the face of a hostile GOP in Congress. Obama was elected with a fairly clear mandate on several things and proceeded to get barely even token legislation through because of the GOP. The Dems rolled over on every negotiation and gave the GOP pretty much everything they wanted in the name of party cooperation and then just got shafted anyway. Remember "remove the public option or we'll filibuster" then they filibustered anyway?

If Trump is in office there's a pretty strong chance the Dems will gain a lot of seats which is really where the social progressive stuff is going to come from, if you actually care about that. With HRC in office, it seems like it'll be 4-8 years of quagmire again wherein nothing gets done except some token feel good stuff and a lot of gimmes to big finance.

You care about SCOTUS appointments? The executive still needs approval from Congress to confirm anyone and your fantasy liberal candidates aren't getting in there anyway. HRC will most definitely 'compromise' with the GOP and get some middle of the road candidates (at best) in there. Congress has already effectively blocked Obama from making the appointment, what makes anyone think they'll let HRC just appoint some super liberal?

That said Trump is probably completely unqualified to be president and will have no idea what he is doing in office which will probably end up being a bog standard GOP presidency because he'll end up doing whatever his conservative advisers tell him is a good idea.

Ugh too many words.

Well if you think that corporate interests are that ingrained then it really does not matter whatsoever who is president.

If all billionaires and F500 companies were aligned on who the best candidate for them would be then I might agree but that's not remotely true at all.

Well that's just untrue. The Dems had control of the House for the first 2 years of his presidency but not the Senate because it requires 60 seats to bypass filibusters (which the Dems did not have). Plus this was when the stimulus package the GOP was crying bloody murder about got passed. Do you remember how they made filibusters just "we're filibustering now?" It's not Mr. Smith Goes to Washington style anymore.

The Dems had 60 seats in the Senate for all of 4 months until Kennedy's seat was filled by a Republican, which was when they finally managed to get a gutted Obamacare passed (since they gutted it then the GOP filibustered anyway resulting in it being dead in the water until those 4 months).

If Obama was a corporate sell out we'd have seen a lot worse; such as no requirement for the banks and car companies to pay back the bailout money (most of which has been paid back already).

I'm not a huge Obama fan and def not a Dem fan but constantly spouting factoids and misinformation only makes your side look weaker. It takes 2 moments to verify information in this day and age and I don't see how anyone could argue against the notion that the GOP has been a bunch of pissbabies for the last 8 years.
