Hillary would not have been worse [John Pavlovitz]

Oh yes, Hillary would have been a dignified, respectful, respectable corporate-Democrat president, with a Republican Congress that hated her even worse than they hated Obama. They'd have blocked everything she tried to do, tied her up with endless investigations (some of which might indeed have uncovered real crimes) and laid the ground-work for electing a dignified, respectable, hard-core Republican such as Ted Cruz in 2020.

Instead, we have Trump, who is a flaming dumpster fire in ALL the ways, and who has engendered more Resistance to the GOP's kleptocratic fascist agenda than Bernie Sanders ever could. The 'blue wave' wouldn't be happening if not for Trump.

I fear that you may be right about what would have happened if Clinton won. Maybe it was time for a Kill or Cure.

There would have been guys with red caps and guns out in the streets if she'd won, too.

On the other hand, there wouldn't be five RW Supreme Court justices right now. There wouldn't be a conveyer belt full of RW zealots heading for confirmation in every vacant seat the Republicans left unfilled during Obama's tenure. There might even be an outcry by now for those to have been filled, and with something other than bright-eyed would-be Scalias who will be there forever and ever.
