The last 5 American Presidents have been a bunch of wa*k**s in my opinion, I can't see that anyone could do any worse. And yes, lets have a woman President, why the hell not? Just not Palin :-))

I can see it now ... Clinton, Palin ticket. No one would dare take her out because of her veep!

Nope! the Kennedys were got rid of.

That could be taken as a very insensitive comment, Chris.
Given the assassinations that took place...
Just sayin'.

But there are very many people that think that is why Kennedy was assassinated ..... It is not insensitive it is maybe an unpleasant truth. I think if he had been allowed to live he would have been the greatest President in all history. We would probably be on Mars as we speak. It was not to be.

Agreed.

No, I'm not trying to threaten. I'm just saying I'm going to ask it one more time and if you still evade, I will not ask it again because you will leave me to draw my own conclusions about your intentions. I just want to know why anybody would want to support Hillary given her track record.

She made a pretty competent secretary of state.

Warren is not in the running.

I couldn't help but notice you called the last five presidents w*nk*ers. If the last five were w*nk*rs and you can't see that anybody who could do worse, why Hillary? Why only her? If you only want "a women" next, why not Fiorina? You said you couldn't see anyone who could do worse, why not Fiorina, given that she meets your only qualification of "being a woman?"

I don't think anyone should be included or excluded based on their gender. Hilary's gender is only relevant because she will have to be so much better than the male candidates to be taken seriously. Notice how we call her her Hilary? Its quite belittling when you think about it.

Why only Hillary with her track record and why someone who would only continue the status quo (which is leading this nation to assured destruction--not to mention Europe beginning to feel the effects of a weak U.S. no longer taking the lead in the world to stop madness...)?

huh? What fantasy is this?

I could say it looks like Hillary is just a bored rich kid also.

Ms Clinton certainly is part of the status quo. However, seeing has how much better the US has done under Obama than the previous President, perhaps the status quo isn't so bad?
I mean, if people support the democrat party because they are making progress (towards communism), why not support Bernie Sanders? At least he's a bit more honest about turning this nation into a communist state. (Socialism is just a transitory state towards communism.)

The thought that the democratic party is making progress towards socialism is laughable.

The thought that taking some certain socialist ideas because they work suddenly takes you down the path to state communism is also very funny. Europe has been socialist for over 100 years. One of the main things causing problems for 'Europe' is their efforts to become a large free market. Hardly communism is it?

Why don't people just admit this? If we want more centralized power and control, more taxes, more government... why not say this?

They don't get it because what you are saying is nonsense.

Or do you support her because she rode her husband's coat tails (couldn't be where she is today if she hadn't clung to the right *man* to get where she is today) and it looks like it's her turn?

Now we see the full extent of the sort of sexism she will have to face. Nasty and nothing to do with her competence or abilities. Ick.

Do you look at her as some sort of royalty, line of ascension, pedigreed, blue-blooded, chosen by God, next in line to the throne, coronation thing?

You mean like the Bush dynasty?

I want the total opposite of this. And I believe Donald Trump is the only one who could get into office and *fire* those who are destroying this country and letting the world fall apart.

..and any credibility you had just went 'whoosh' when you thought a clown candidate would help..unless of course your goal is the bankruptcy and destruction of the US, then yes, He's your man.

Someone who is a whisker away from indictment for espionage is competent to be Secretary of State? I wish that on Canada and Great Brittan. Actually I don't because the USA shares secrets with them.

United States v. Dedeyan in 1978 was the first prosecution under 793(f)(2) (Dedeyan 'failed to report' that information had been disclosed). ... The defendant received a 3-year sentence.

The problem is I think CIA/NSA would refuse her a security clearance today and that would make for a very awkward presidency.

Again, best comment on Hillary's record as SOS by a Candidate, "Flying around the world is an activity, not an accomplishment".

And why would anyone say the last 5 Presidents were
a bunch of wa*k**s
and stop short of Jimmy Carter. What a quagmire that was and it took an outsider an 'actor' to put things back on the rails for a little while.

Trump is sounding better and better and I'm sure he can find better 'advisers' than the Caliph in Chief has.

Your generalized statements for socializing everything and completely killing off the free market will end the same way the USSR ended in 1991.

Guy the free market solution to medical care in this country has been very successful in in bankrupting people and killing people. Oh I forgot you have lived your entire adult life with govt. medical via the USAF. As an aside Obama care is not the solution either.

Thirsty, the actor led the charge to transfer income and wealth from the middle class to the oligarchs based upon the idea of trickle down economics. There is not an iota of evidence that worked. It was best described as voodoo economics by those who had a clue.

Our country was founded on the principle of there being a higher authority and with His help, we can self-correct. Take Him away and we will go the way of all other countries in history.

Guy so you are publicly advocating a theocracy?

No.

It sure sounds like it to me. Whose higher authority do you reference? My higher authority is between my ears.
