“I don’t care what anyone says…”  
Liking Hillary Clinton (me too)

I like her well enough - she's the same age as my eldest sister, and seems similar in many ways. I'm sure we would get along all right if we were part of the same club or volunteer organization. That's neither here nor there; my objections to her politics are political, not personal. I voted for her only because there was nobody else to vote for, and I knew even then that she probably wouldn't win - not because she's 'unlikeable', but because she's a lesser-evil Democrat, and the less-evil always lose against the more-evil.

Unfortunately, the Dem elite are laboring under the delusion that they can beat the GOP by becoming more evil themselves. It won't work; the GOP will just get even more evil in response, as they've been doing for decades already. However, it probably seems safer than trying to become good, as in standing up for the people and the environment instead of sucking the dicks of corporate donors.

Who knows how great Hillary might have been, if she'd never married that weasel Slick Willie.
