Thu Feb 26, 2015, 12:09 AM

No apologies from me, I can't imagine a more vomit inducing nominee for the Democratic Party

than Hillary Clinton.

What makes her so fucking horrible?

She is the very cold, gutless soul of the 1%. Carefully means testing the value of her words against the Wall Street pay scale.

All the while, notably absent without leave against the most pressing and polarizing problems the US has faced since the civil war:

Civil rights, constitutional checks and balances, racism, police state overreach, NSA, CIA, income disparity, oil lobby, the health care lobby, the banking lobby, the telco lobby, Israeli lobby, CEO lobby, off shoring to India, on and on and on.

She can't be bothered.

But... if you have $300,000 to throw her way and the proper number of teleprompters, she'll give you a carefully vetted speech on some motherhood and apple pie issue which is guaranteed not to make anyone on Wall Street uncomfortable.

And the scary fucking thing is - her silence, as the nation burns, is the very thing her giddy sycophants are telling us makes her so presidential.

We deserve better. Our children deserve better.

We are literally fucking ourselves.

154. Bushes And Clintons Working Together In My Opinion

 

Its a total scam and must be stopped NOW! I particularly like your description of Hillary giving some speech on a Mom and Pop Apple Pie issue that can't offend anyone. People here think its so great when she supports something like wage inequality but any sane person should and does. Safe issues like that aren't what is going to determine the direction of our country...things like 911 do. Expect catastrophe if a Bush wins and Clinton winning will still have Bush fingerprints on our foreign policy and wars waged on Americans at home.

224. I refuse to stay home and not vote no matter what due to SC.

 

I think Clinton is a corporatist. Not a progressive like I want. But better than a republican. I fear we'll lose if she is the candidate and that would result in the end of our democracy such as it is. But when one family says they will throw nearly a billion dollars into the race for GOP control (Koch bros)then I will vote for every dem available. If only I knew a way to make voting mandatory. I am suspicious of anyone who pushes not voting just because their nominee didn't win the primary. Principles before personalities. Dems need to win the Presidency the House and the Senate which we won't do if we become self imploding.

238. For his first two years, Democrats had large majorities in both houses, greater than any Democrat is

likely to see again for a good long time. You are making a great case that it doesn't much matter who is President, maybe not even who wins seats Congress, unless the Democratic majority is as large as it was before the Civil Rights Act of 1964. (Even then, Presidents like FDR and LBJ had to work hard to form various coalitions to get things passed.)

BTW, why are so many members of DU's right posting in this group? Y'all have plenty of other groups, including the Obama Group and the Hillary Group.

286. "Y'all"? just because I don't jump on the bash - Obama (and Clinton) bandwagon....

..means I'm "right-wing"? Pretty offensive of you.

And what most around here forget is that Obama inherited probably the biggest mess any incoming President ever inherited. Even so, unlike you and many here I haven't written off his first two years. He began the economic turnaround, restored our image in the world, and got the ACA through Congress , among other things.

And considering the resistance in Congress he's still accomplished quite a bit in the last four years.

297. DU's right does not mean the same as right wing.

Right wing generally means the right wing of the Republican Party, maybe right Libertarians or Constitution Party or one of the splinter rightist parties. I assume most or all DUers are Democrats (or the Canadian equivalent of US Democrats). Still, within that, DU has a right and a left, as does the Democratic Party. More than just a right and a left--a continuum.

Also, I never wrote off Obama's first two years. I said that he had majorities in both houses during his first two years. That is not the same as saying nothing worthwhile at all happened during those first two years.

If you are eager to take offense, take it at this: You might try reading what people actually do post and responding to that.

307. A few points............

First, the sarcastic and negative comment "Great post! Because I really expected President Obama to resolve all those issues! Great insight." is what prompted my comment. I never said YOU wrote off Obama's first two years, but obviously the person I responded to pretty much did so.

Second, "why are so many members of DU's right posting in this group?" Well, when a post appears on the Democratic Underground HOME page, and I choose to respond, I will. I don't search out specific posts in specific groups. Note that the actual group does NOT appear above the post on the Home Page (check it out). THAT is where I saw it. If people don't want "us" to respond, maybe they should request that they not appear on the home page?

Finally, I do NOT live in Canada, never did and probably never will, as if that has any importance. Why do people around here have make such rash assumptions? In the last couple of weeks I've been "accused" of Canadian, of being anti-woman because I prefer Hillary Clinton over Elizabeth Warren (really?????), and accused of an "attempt to smear someone who is gay" because I don't particularly appreciate Glenn Greenwald, gay or not.

What is going on around here these days? WHY do people have to be so snarly and accusatory?

5. there is a threshold where the consequences are so significant, the moral equity of one side

far outweighs the moral deficit of the other.

Hillary is the wrong candidate at the wrong time.

Her presumed entitlements illustrate how brainwashed and compliant we've become in the face of our very real oligarchy falsely credited as democracy.

143. Thank you

 

I truly appreciate the name calling, or labeling, if you will.

It shows your character well.

Yes, I'm going to fight really fucking hard to put a Democrat in the WH in 2016. That means I can not fight for Hillary. She is a Republican through and through and you present no argument to counter that opinion.

The only thing you offer is telling me she is the anointed one that shall be our next POTUS no matter what.

That sounds like hero worship more than anything else, but maybe you do have solid reasoning for that line of thinking. I'll be happy to read all about it.

Anyway, he is the only person I've heard say he is considering running besides Sen. Sanders. I cannot think of anyone else but you never know. There could be a dark horse out there lying in wait.

Since the corporations buy both parties now, they scare us with Republican Bogeymen so we will vote for their safe Democrat. You still put their preferred candidate in (a Dem can do more for 1% than a Repug b/c Repugs will support anything for Wall Street, and Dems less inclined to oppose since it is their President) who can get more done for them.

The reality is this: of all those people who chose to come here and read over this thread, a number of those chose to rec the thread. There are studies aplenty that show for every one person who performs an action (in this case, reccing) there are many who are sympathetic, but have chosen to take no action. The ratio varies depending on the study and parameters. But the point is this: of those roughly 5k people, chances are exceptionally high, a sizable portion of them do indeed enjoy this sort of discourse... else they'd not be here in the first place.

At the very least, there are 146 people who do indeed enjoy this sort of thing...thereby negating the nonsense that no one wants to listen to what's being said.

There is nothing anyone here can say that will make you vote for HRC. So if you have nothing else to contribute to the party, than just go away. What are you doing to find that MAGIC candidate just waiting on the sidelines of the Democratic Party, waiting to throw his or her hat in the ring of fire for the new two years, fundraising day and night to hopefully have a inkling of a chance against the Koch Bros, and all the other right wing finance machines, to try and hold on to the one remaining leg of this three legged broken stool.

Why do you say I don't have anything to contribute to the party? I say and have said for at least 10 years, probably closer to 20, that the party has little to contribute to me.

Other than that what does not supporting Hillary have to do with the party? Has she been nominated as the candidate yet? I didn't even realize she admitted to being a candidate yet. I do of course believe we will be better off if she doesn't run. Just what we need for our choice for President, a Republican and a wannabe Republican.

There is no doubt in my mind, if Hillary is our nominee we will have a Republican President.

I think we are long over due for a female President, but let's try to find one that doesn't think she has balls.

Oh and one final note, I notice you couldn't come up with any reasons for me to support Hillary either.

I respect that HRC fans have their reasons to want to vote for her. I don't respect that many of them are doing so with the fervor of a zealot... pretending that she is tantamount to the second coming... or that its either vote for her or the republicans. Then scream how there's no alternative... never mind the fact that we've got quite a bit of time before election season even starts!

Fact is, no matter how people place her on the pedestal of inevitability, she's not. She hasn't even officially declared she's running yet. The same could be said for Bernie Sanders. I'd certainly vote for Bernie over HRC... but as of yet, he's not an option...and neither is she.

People need to step back a bit and calm down. The last thing we need to be doing is attacking each other here on DU.

We've still got quite a bit of time yet... and NOTHING said in this thread will change anyone's mind, nor make any difference regarding who's running or when.

I knew the guy, but never heard him say it, and Franken was the most recent one I heard had used it on the Senate floor, so I remember it as "his" phrase, although it certainly sounds like Pat Moynihan for sure.

My dad was the "dean" of the New York press in Washington for decades, so he knew Pat very well, had me sit next to him at Gridiron, etc.

Here's a true story (as in "it happened right in front of my nose" you'll never hear elsewhere: at the 1995 Gridiron Dinner, Pat got roaring drunk, ran up to the podium when Clinton's head was turned, and swiped his speech to read through it. Clinton was furious at Placido Flamingo (the code name assigned to a very UN-amused Secret Service agent who was supposed to be keeping an eye on his notes), and some stern words were exchanged. Clinton got his speech back in short order, and Pat settled back into his seat as if nothing had happened.

We have already had one Clinton who proved to be a charismatic, though morally bankrupt man of Wall Street, the Banks, Military/Industrial/Congressional complex (Bosnia) and made, according to most counts a couple hundred million dollars since leaving office, unlike Jimmy Carter done absolutely nothing for the average person.

Obama has proven to be just as beholding to the same group and one wonders what horrors Hillary, who has shown herself even more warmongering than her husband would bring to the presidency.

So what make anyone thing Hillary will be any different. She is a proven warmonger, doesn't seem to give much thought to the average, let alone the poor of this country

As far as voting for a third party and assisting a Republican win, the Oligarchy wins no matter who is elected from these parties.

We the people have not been able in the last 30 some years to get the Democrats leaders to pay any attention to us leaving the only alternative to vote a third party or stay at home. I know may people who voted for Clinton and Obama the first time but not the second and it looks like they will stay home if another representative of the .01% is nominated.

Personally I will not vote for Hillary or any Republican under any circumstances so I can only hope the party return to sanity and nominate anyone other than Hillary.

If the democrats can run anyone that can enthral the base and the republicans continue being so obnoxious, and unamerican perhaps even the old fashioned ''centrist'' republicans will find reasons to vote for a democrat though I won't hold my breath because the American voter tends stay with the party they grew up in no matter how disgusting they have become.

I am of the opinion that there really won't be enough democrats left that will hold their noses and vote for Hillary and the only solution is for the Democrat party to nominate someone that will appeal to those disenfranchised voters that have left the party or will stay home.

But there is a real possibility that many of the conservative minded democrats will vote republican if the Party makes a u-turn.

Until the democrats become the anti-war party, pro middle class(meaning pro Union), anti-spying, get rid of Dept. of Homeland Security(saving the taxpayers some $50 Billions a year, and want to restore the infrastructure instead of Trillions for wars and spying, the wealthy paying only 15% in taxes while the rest of up are in the 30% bracket this silly charade will continue until this country is in ruin.

If Jeb Bush is elected it will be the fault of the DNC, not those who chose to stay home or vote third party. And if the policies of both parties continue on this path, the country is doomed.

We are all Americans first, not Democrats or Republicans and it's time to start thinking about real people, not corporate people.

and never called the Democratic Party the Democrat Party. I didn't really even follow politics much until the run up to the Iraq war. The term "Democrat Party" was started by Rush and followed by all the other right wing radio hosts, as well as Fox news and every republican who appears on the news. I have never heard a democratic politician refer to it as such. Thus, when ever someone says "democrat party" it sets off alarm bells for more people than just myself.

298. The way it was explained to me, it was an ad that Rove ran for Dimson.

I don't know if Dimson was running for President or Governor at the time. However, the word Democrat was on the screen at the end of the ad. I don't know if it was on its own or as part of a sentence or phrase. At the very last seconds, everything disappeared from the screen but "rat," as though the ad were attempting to send a subliminal message.

In any event, my point was that, until it was pointed out to me that saying the Democrat Party was offensive, I didn't know it was. Yet, I was never anything but a Democrat. I was clueless. Of course, that was quite a while ago. By now, I think people who post on political boards probably know the difference. But, because I was clueless, I'd probably give a poster the benefit of the doubt, unless there are other "tells."

We are watching the last vestiges of the New Deal and Great Society being wiped away before our eyes.....by DEMOCRATIC Presidents!!!
The Middle Class and Working Class are being left behind.

One of the few times I am truly thankful for living in a RED state.
Hillary will lose my state by over 20 points, so I am free to vote my conscience without helping Republicans. I will proudly cast my vote for a Liberal and the policies I believe in, or write in a real Democrat.
Hillary will NOT get my vote.

Actually, few states will be in play, but be smart.

Sure, that's been the recent trend, but Hillary was First Lady of Arkansas for 12 years, so I think she would fare better in Arkansas, at least, than recent Democratic candidates.

121. I think you are missing the point

 

My yardstick of a democrat is FDR and he was far from perfect but he realized that allowing the wealthy to control the country would not work without the masses having a decent living standard and a chance to rise on the economic ladder.

The Democrat Party of today is filled people not worthy to claim the title of democrat. The Clinton's, Obama, Reid and the rest, with very few exceptions are far from FDR and actually not as good a democrat as Nixon would be were he alive today.

As far as trolling; since when is it considered trolling on DU when all we are asking for a a fair shake at who we chose for public service. I think to support whom ever is knighted by the power brokers is foolish and worse than trolling.

And that seems to be the problem today with both parties, ''Public Service'' has been replaced with ''Self Service''.

just might have had something to do with the many tax increases of the prior two Presidents in combination with Clinton's doing away with "welfare as we know it.

287. Democrats opposed repeal of Glass Steagall until:

They got a compromise that prohibited banks from "red-lining" minority dominated areas and refusing to provide loans for purchase of homes. When it got to his desk it was veto proof. By the way Republicans now say that the housing loan crisis was the fault of forcing banks to give minorities loans. I am in total agreement that it was a bad move, but the blame is not solely rest with Clinton. Go read up on NAFTA and who pushed it.

296. Clinton and Greenspan BOTH actively lobbied for repeal so "veto proof" is a shibboleth .

Last edited Sun Mar 1, 2015, 09:51 AM - Edit history (2)

Democratic Senators have stated that Clinton lobbied Democrats hard for it. And their assertions are backed up by documents.

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/apr/19/wall-street-deregulation-clinton-advisers-obama

Besides, in general, no law says a President can veto something, even if he thinks is veto proof. The Constitutional power of a President to override is not limited. No one can know how an attempt to override a veto will actually go until a veto actually occurs and an override vote is actually taken. People have changed votes in the face of a Presidential veto.

In the specific case of repeal of Glass Steagall, however, the fact is, Clinton supported it. Not only that, but he defended his support of repeal, even after the 2008 collapse.




And regardless of who "pushed" NAFTA, Clinton signed that, too. And either he supported that as well, or he lied to the American public about his support.

After much consideration and emotional discussion, the House of Representatives passed the North American Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act on November 17, 1993, 234-200. The agreement's supporters included 132 Republicans and 102 Democrats. The bill passed the Senate on November 20, 1993, 61-38.[6] Senate supporters were 34 Republicans and 27 Democrats. Clinton signed it into law on December 8, 1993; the agreement went into effect on January 1, 1994.[7][8] Clinton, while signing the NAFTA bill, stated that "NAFTA means jobs. American jobs, and good-paying American jobs. If I didn't believe that, I wouldn't support this agreement."[9]


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_Free_Trade_Agreement#cite_note-5

And, of course, you did not comment on the tax increases by Reagan and Poppy, combined with ending "welfare as we know it." And despire all that, there was only a modest surplus by the time Clinton left office.

ETA: On White House support of repeal of Glass Steagall:

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/wallstreet/weill/

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/apr/19/wall-street-deregulation-clinton-advisers-obama

Obama hired/appointed many of the same people who pushed for repeal of Glass Steagall. (Under Obama, Sperling came up with the idea of the seqester, in case the Grand Bargain Committee failed in its mission. And, of course, many of the same people who pushed for repeal of Glass Steagall are now advising Hillary's campaign, including on the specific issue of income inequality.

299. I never said that he didn't support it; but it had the support of many Democrats in the Senate.

As to being only a modest surplus, it was grand breakthrough after the devastating deficits of Reagan and poppy Bush that were eclipsed by his son. I don't understand why people would minimize this fact unless it serves to further condemn Clinton. I am not suggesting that he was the greatest president, but he sure wasn't the worse and one hell of lot better for the nation than Reagan of either Bush. He resisted that attempt of the PNAC to take us to war in Iraq seeing it as a potential disaster.

We lose when a free-trade, Wall Street Democrat wins, We lose a whole lot more when a Republican wins. A Wall Street Democrat will simply hold the course. A Republican twists the screws, stokes the engine, and burns the lifeboats.

(on edit: this is NOT premised on the idea that HRC is the only viable candidate for the Party's nomination. It's way too early to make that judgement.)

I'd LOVE Bernie Sanders for president. I'm in a red state and my vote doesn't mean shit. Tennessee's votes will go to the GOP. I voted for Rocky Anderson and the Justice Party in 2012. Maybe living in a red state opens my tolerance for imperfect Democrats. I see what these people (Republicans, Tea Partiers) are capable of on a daily basis. Every morning paper brings a fresh horror from the state house in Nashville.

54. HILLARY'S VISION

Last edited Thu Feb 26, 2015, 04:18 AM - Edit history (1)

As a presidential candidate, says one political veteran, Hillary Clinton does not offer the country a “fresh start.” “For all of her advantages, she is not a healing figure,” he continues. “The more she tries to moderate her image … the more she compounds her exposure as an opportunist. And after two decades of the Bush-Clinton saga, making herself the candidate of the future could be a challenge.”

Who said this? Marco Rubio? Scott Walker? A consultant for their fledgling 2016 campaigns? In fact, none of the above. They are the words of David Axelrod, the uber-strategist for Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign, and are drawn from his new memoir, Believer. The hefty, engaging book has been dissected mostly for Axelrod’s analysis of his former client and his presidency, but it’s actually far more remarkable from another vantage: It is a reminder of how far liberals who were in the pro-Obama camp in 2008 have traveled in their view of Hillary Clinton—and how much they’ve allowed themselves to forget along the way.

This amnesia may seem harmless now, but it might come back to haunt Democrats in the general election.
The reconciliation of Obama’s following with the presumptive 2016 Democratic nominee has been the great underexamined story on the Democratic side of the ledger heading into an election year. One simply cannot overstate how much ill will there was between the two camps in 2007 and 2008—that historic, down-to-the-wire primary standoff was based not in policy contrasts (good luck recalling the differences in their health plans) but in a deeply personal clash about the meaning and methods of progressive politics. “Triangulating and poll-driven positions because we’re worried about what Mitt or Rudy might say about us just won’t do,” Obama said in his breakout speech in Des Moines in November 2007. “This party … has always made the biggest difference in the lives of the American people when we led, not by polls, but by principle; not by calculation, but by conviction; when we summoned the entire nation to a common purpose—a higher purpose.”


Clinton fired back sarcastically three months later: “Now, I could stand up here and say, ‘Let’s just get everybody together. Let’s get unified. The skies will open, the light will come down, celestial choirs will be singing, and everyone will know we should do the right thing and the world will be perfect.’ ” The legions of young Obama foot soldiers in Iowa, South Carolina, and elsewhere were fired not just by airy notions of hope and change and making history but by the more negative motivation that the prospect of a Clinton nomination stirred in them.

snip

And yet here we are, eight years later, and it is almost as if that great showdown never happened. Some of those young Obama loyalists have now assumed leading positions in the vast Clinton apparatus, as have some of his most senior campaign staff. With no serious opposition looming in next year’s primaries, Clinton’s standing among Democratic voters is vastly stronger than it was at this point eight years ago (right around the time Obama announced his challenge), notes Nate Cohn in the New York Times. As was the case then, the papers are full of eyebrow-raising stories about overlap between her political backers and donors to the Clinton Foundation. Yet whereas in 2007 those stories were seized on by many liberals as confirmation of their wariness of Clinton, this time around there is little sign of the stories—or those about her continuing to rake in $300,000 speaking fees—causing any real agita on the left.

Clinton speech to FMI-United Fresh meeting lacks vision
June 16, 2014


Clinton started off by saying she was "thrilled to talk to two groups that every day help families get access to healthy foods" and that she wanted to talk about "hard choices" in food and leadership in the country.

Clinton praised United Fresh for its program to provide salad bars in schools and noted that "there is a debate in Congress" about whether to stick with the healthier meals rules imposed on schools under the 2010 Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act. She did not specifically endorse sticking with the new rules, but said "the idea it is too expensive to provide healthy foods" is a "false choice."

She also noted that the Clinton Foundation cofounded the Alliance for a Healthier Generation with the American Heart Association. The alliance, she said, has convinced food and beverage companies to reduce calories in their products. The foundation, she said, has a partnership with McDonald's, "and we need more of those."

Hillary Clinton, tell us your vision

By Eugene Robinson


Her memoir of the years she spent as secretary of state, “Hard Choices,” offers little guidance. My view is that Clinton did an excellent job as America’s chief diplomat, but if she has an overarching philosophy of foreign relations, she left it out of the book. We know that President Obama believes in multilateralism and the sparing use of U.S. military force. We know that some critics believe we should be more interventionist and others believe we should be more isolationist. “Hard Choices” doesn’t really tell us which way Clinton leans, though her record suggests a slight nod toward the hawkish side.

In the book, Clinton rejects the idea of choosing between the “hard power” of military might and the “soft power” of diplomacy, sanctions and foreign aid. Instead, she advocates “smart power,” which seems to mean “all of the above.” When I hear officials talking about “smart” this or “smart” that, I hear a buzzword that is often meant to obscure policy choices rather than illuminate them.

Clinton’s message on domestic affairs is also unclear. At the Iowa event, she sounded what is sure to be a major theme for both Democrats and Republicans in the coming campaign: the need to ease the plight of the beleaguered middle class.

HILLARY'S VISION



A couple of months ago, Robert Kagan wrote a manifesto that attacked Obama’s foreign policy as weak and cowardly. He hailed the triumphal return of neo-conservatism and interventionism, arguing that superior force must be central to US policy.

A follow-up interview with Kagan appeared in the New York Times:

“But Exhibit A for what Robert Kagan describes as his “mainstream” view of American force is his relationship with former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who remains the vessel into which many interventionists are pouring their hopes. Mr. Kagan pointed out that he had recently attended a dinner of foreign-policy experts at which Mrs. Clinton was the guest of honor, and that he had served on her bipartisan group of foreign-policy heavy hitters at the State Department, where his wife worked as her spokeswoman.

“I feel comfortable with her on foreign policy,” Mr. Kagan said, adding that the next step after Mr. Obama’s more realist approach “could theoretically be whatever Hillary brings to the table” if elected president. “If she pursues a policy which we think she will pursue,” he added, “it’s something that might have been called neocon, but clearly her supporters are not going to call it that; they are going to call it something else.”

Now, in an interview with the Atlantic, Hillary shows boldly that Kagan’s confidence in her is not misplaced. It is a full-throated call for reliance on US power to subdue or tame all adversaries, and her list includes not only the jihadists of ISIS, but Iran, Russia, and China. She joins the chorus blaming Obama for a too cautious approach to military intervention. On Israel, she gives not an inch to worldwide condemnation of the occupation and the massacre in Gaza: “Israel did what it had to do.”

What’s most striking is the lack of vision beyond American superiority and the need to try to convince or compel the rest of the world to fall in line. Nowhere in the long interview does she mention climate change, poverty and inequality, or any of the existential problems that require international cooperation if there is to be any hope.

Hillary's Evasive Views on the NSA


On Tuesday, the technology journalist Kara Swisher raised the subject of surveillance while questioning the former Secretary of State. "Would you throttle back the NSA in the ways that President Obama has promised but that haven't come to pass?" she asked. Clinton's successfully evasive answer unfolded as follows:

Clinton: Well, I think the NSA needs to be more transparent about what it is doing, sharing with the American people, which it wasn't. And I think a lot of the reaction about the NSA, people felt betrayed. They felt, wait, you didn't tell us you were doing this. And all of a sudden now, we're reading about it on the front page...

So when you say, "Would you throttle it back?" Well, the NSA has to act lawfully. And we as a country have to decide what the rules are. And then we have to make it absolutely clear that we're going to hold them accountable. What we had because of post-9/11 legislation was a lot more flexibility than I think people really understood, and was not explained to them. I voted against the FISA Amendments in 2008 because I didn't think they went far enough to kind of hold us accountable in the Congress for what was going on.

Swisher: By flexibility you mean too much spying power, really.

Clinton: Well yeah but how much is too much? And how much is not enough? That's the hard part. I think if Americans felt like, number one, you're not going after my personal information, the content of my personal information. But I do want you to get the bad guys, because I don't want them to use social media, to use communications devices invented right here to plot against us. So let's draw the line. And I think it's hard if everybody's in their corner. So I resist saying it has to be this or that. I want us to come to a better balance.
This will not do. The answer elides the fact that Clinton has not been a passive actor in surveillance policy. "What the rules are" is something that she was responsible for helping to decide. She served in the United States Senate from 2001 to 2009. She cast votes that enabled the very NSA spying that many now regard as a betrayal. And she knew all about what the NSA wasn't telling the public. To say now that the NSA should've been more transparent raises this question: Why wasn't Clinton among the Democrats working for more transparency?

Clinton may resist "saying" that surveillance policy "has to be this or that," but it must be something specific. "Let's draw the line" and "I want us to come to a better balance" are shameless weasel phrases when you're vying to call the shots. What is being balanced in her view? What should the NSA have revealed earlier? How much transparency should it provide going forward? What does the law require of the NSA? Since 9/11, when has the NSA transgressed against the law as Clinton sees it? Those questions hint at the many ways that her position is evasive. So long as no one else contests her party's nomination, she can get away with it.

Hillary Praises Fracking, Stays Silent on Keystone -



At a speech to an environmental advocacy group, Clinton came out in favor of fracking—and ignored the controversial pipeline project.
At a speech to the League of Conservation Voters in midtown Manhattan Monday night, before hundreds of deep-pocketed donors, Hillary Clinton praised the environmental legacy of Teddy Roosevelt, touted the prospect of new green technologies, and had warm words for Barack Obama’s aggressive efforts to combat climate change.

Absent from the former Secretary of State’s speech? Any sense of where she stood on the controversial Keystone pipeline project, or what she would do differently as president to steer the nation towards a more sustainable future.

Not in her office equal pay for men and women


During her time in the U.S. Senate, Clinton paid women in her office 72 cents for each dollar paid to men, according to a report by Washington Free Beacon.

Analyzing data obtained from official Senate expenditure reports, Free Beacon concluded that the median annual salary for female staffers was $15,708.38 less than the median salary for men, between 2002 to 2008.

That’s about a 28 percent gender wage gap:

This is a Democratic forum. I can't think of one potential Dem candidate that I would describe in the words posted by the Op. We may all have our favorite even if we don't believe they can compete for the nomination. I think any Dem who wants to enter the Primary should be welcome. Personally I would love it so that our ideas and policies have more exposure.

There isn't any reason for personal attacks and trash talking about any Dem candidate.

30. I've been through 3 presidential elections and crap posts like the OP...

serve absolutely no purpose and I applaud your reply.

I'm not even sure who I'm supporting in the primaries because I'm not overly keen on Clinton and I'm still waiting to see the full slate before I decide.

And unlike the OP I truly do know what is 'vomit-worthy' and that is the thought of any republican in the White House. As much as Hillary bugs me on some issues theRe aren't enough of them to make me or most sane Dems here at DU from supporting her if she gets the nomination and especially if the race is tight. But that election is more that 18 months away. And btw I saw this same thing in February 2007 where everyone assumed that Hillary was already the nominee. I wonder how that worked out..........

I just wish posters would learn to discuss issues instead of just name calling people in our own party, people whom many here at DU do support. If a person wants to gain respect from others here at DU then using ugly words towards someone like Hillary Clinton isn't going to do the trick.

156. Gee, that's not really true.

Hillary Clinton's national popular vote total in the 2008 primaries was 17,857,501, or 48.04%.

Obama's popular vote total were 17,584,692, or 47.31%.

Remember when the Michigan delegates were sanctioned for an early primary and given only half a vote at the convention? Hillary Clinton originally won 34.5 of those delegates to Obama's 29.5.

In Florida, Clinton beat Obama with 50% of the vote to Obama's 33%. Also because of an early primary, the Florida delegation was completely stripped of their 210 delegates. Obama requested them all to be restored the day before the Democratic convention began, and the DNC seated the delegations.

So when you tell yourself this little fairy tale, it may soothe you. But Clinton came very close to winning.

192. Gee, that's not really true.

Q: Did Clinton win the popular vote?

A: Obama won more votes unless you count Michigan, where he wasn’t on the ballot.

FULL QUESTION

Did Hillary Clinton actually end up with more popular votes than Barack Obama? Given that there is some discussion on whether to count the popular votes of Michigan and Florida, as well as how to count caucus votes, who did end up with the higher count?

FULL ANSWER

After the primary season wrapped up on Tuesday, Clinton commended her supporters and claimed once again that she had won the popular vote: "Nearly 18 million of you cast your votes for our campaign, carrying the popular vote with more votes than any primary candidate in history."

Did she? Now that all the primaries and caucuses are over we can take one, final look.

Obama won more total votes than Clinton in the contests where they both appeared on the ballot. Clinton won the popular vote only if you count votes from Michigan, where Obama’s name did not appear on the ballot.

Any way you cut it, the candidates’ vote totals are within less than 1 percent of each other. Both candidates got roughly 18 million votes, but since four states don’t list official counts, the precise totals can’t be known....

I think she ran and won a Senate seat twice.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillary_Rodham_Clinton

But I think that is it. Elizabeth Warren has only won one election. Sorry. I edited this to correct the number of elections she has won.

Bernie Sanders is the one with lots of political experience and has run the highest number of successful election campaigns of those three potential contenders.

And Hillary won to a great extent on Bill Clinton's popularity.

Elizabeth Warren electfifies crowds. Bernie Sanders electrifies his crowds. I think that Hillary Clinton gets by a lot on her reputation and reknown but not so much on her own personality.

OMG, great point! Just eight years in the Senate, and four years as Secretary of State. What has she actually DONE?

Bernie Sanders is the one with lots of political experience and has run the highest number of successful election campaigns of those three potential contenders.


Bernie Sanders is a Socialist who caucuses with Democrats, and even though he holds solid positions on key issues, a Socialist candidate is not going to win a presidential election in 2015. His candidacy will do even worse than Dennis Kucinich did. He's also not that compelling - he comes off like a college professor. Bernie will mainly function to make Hillary look more "reasonable" to independent voters. "I'm not a Socialist" is a winning campaign slogan in 2015.

And Hillary won to a great extent on Bill Clinton's popularity.


YES, THAT'S RIGHT. Hillary relied on her HUSBAND to win (because women do that ALL THE TIME, amirite?!!!???) Hillary didn't campaign, she didn't debate the competition, she didn't do interviews... she FOOLED everyone by hiding behind Bill Clinton's record (OMG a terrible president... terrible! And then Hillary fooled the voters by using his terrible record to win.) Great analysis!

Elizabeth Warren electfifies crowds. Bernie Sanders electrifies his crowds. I think that Hillary Clinton gets by a lot on her reputation and reknown but not so much on her own personality.


YES, SO TRUE. (You forgot to say "Hillary is shrill!" Everybody is sooo bored by Hillary, and nobody will be excited. You see everybody falling asleep when Hillary makes an appearance. Look at how horrible she was at the last Democratic convention. Nobody likes Hillary! Just compare Hillary's poll numbers with Bernie Sanders (wait, who?) and Elizabeth Warrens (that name sounds familiar).

149. I can see you are emotionally involved with Hillary's candidacy.

If Hillary is the candidate, you will see that I am right. She is not a good candidate.

She should have beat Obama by a wide margin in 2008. She didn't because she does not have charisma. It's just a fact.

Watch carefully as things unfold.

There is one circumstance under which she can win: if the Republicans nominate a really bad candidate. That could happen.

Hillary is sold out to big money. She does not relate to people well. She has a slim chance of winning and election.

Hillary's name has been out there for a couple of decades, and her husband's presidency is remembered as a time of relative prosperity. That is why she is ahead in the polls. It isn't really that people take to her that well.

When the Republicans and opponents within the Democratic Party start pointing to the many problems that arose from Bill's presidency and Hillary's own weaknesses, the polls will weaken.

Hillary has a penchant for making bad mistakes when campaigning. If you are her supporter, you should know that better than I.

We shall see. I could be wrong, but I feel that I should continue to raise questions. If everyone wants Hillary in spite of my warnings, so be it. I'm in California. It won't make any difference whether I vote for her or not because Democrats could nominate Howdy Doody and he would win here. Schwarzenegger pretty much destroyed the Republican brand in California.

I usually work very hard in campaigns, but now, at 71, I can't do that for health reasons. So that is the way it is.

I want future generations to know that we are a people who see our differences as a great gift, that we’re a people who value the dignity and worth of every citizen -- man and woman, young and old, black and white, Latino, Asian, immigrant, Native American, gay, straight, Americans with mental illness or physical disability. Everybody matters. I want them to grow up in a country that shows the world what we still know to be true: that we are still more than a collection of red states and blue states; that we are the United States of America.



President Barack Obama, State of the Union, January 20, 2015

So, whereisjustice? Good question. Will Manny just except my apology for being in his group? Will he ban me? Or will he give me another hide?

I am giving this group the courtesy of an apology and bowing out. I hope I will be treated with the same respect. May I repeat, I hope that as a woman I will be treated with respect.

I tend to post right off the Latest Threads page and a time or two failed to notice that I was clicking on the title of a thread that had been posted in a group. Once, I noticed myself and deleted. Another time, a host posted, asking me to delete and I did.

The disrespect this group gets, however, may make me modify my behavior.

That's silly; all people should be treated with respect.

IIRC, all but one of my posts in the thread that you linked to were responses to direct questions put to me, largely by you. I answered your questions with links to evidence, then you got super angry. Then you got a post hidden on that thread for saying something totally outrageous about me and another poster.

As far as Nader, 300,000 Democrats in Florida voted for Bush. Let's start there.

Not to mention Gore ran a shitty campaign in Florida.

Nader is a scapegoat used to deflect attention away from shitty campaign management.

If it weren't Hillary, it'd be some other lifeless puppet pretending to be human. It makes no difference which puppet ''we choose.'' The mold may make them look different on the outside, but everything is exactly the same on the inside.

290. IMO almost everything

happens for a reason The years of Bush Jr. woke up this country and the Loyal Left Independents and Democrats saw another Vietnam rise from the ashes.

If Gore became the President we would have been wandering around on the Democratic Party/DLC coattails with more safety net and financial regulations quietly dissolving, just a bit slower.

Then Obama came with "Hope and Change" and the AWOKEN amongst us came out in droves. Without Bush, Obama may still be sitting in a Senate seat. HRC would have continued the disguised Democratic rightward trend and one day we would have woken up to a world of complete corporate sovereignty.

Many, many American people are now able to see clearly that HRC represents a backward track. We need an upward movement for "The People" that goes beyond Obama to EQUALITY FOR ALL."

Considering we got the same corporate policies out of Obama, I wish she had won so we could have seen her go after those asshats in the Republican Party. Being a woman I'm sure they would have shown her the same disrespect they've shown Obama, but she would not have remained as quiet as he has.

And I can't imagine the disillusionment that some here are going to feel if she actually gets elected and reveals who she really is and what she stands for.

So far she's been able to obfuscate, weasel, and babble on in glittering generalities, and nobody has even attempted to pin her down on policy. Hopefully that will happen before she becomes the nominee and we're faced with a choice betwee republican 1 and republican 2.

And she's smart too, gotta give her that.

They get to write off what are really campaign donations as a business expense.

AUTOMATED MESSAGE: Results of your Jury Service
On Thu Feb 26, 2015, 09:52 AM an alert was sent on the following post:

No apologies from me, I can't imagine a more vomit inducing nominee for the Democratic Party
http://www.democraticunderground.com/12774035

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

This is out and out Democrat bashing on a Democratic messageboard. This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Thu Feb 26, 2015, 10:01 AM, and the Jury voted 3-4 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: TRUST ME, I really want to vote "hide" but I can't. This poster is entitled to their opinion and their vote even if it's something I don't agree with. I sure hope we have a contested primary, but I'm coming to terms with Hillary being the best person to win in 2016. That being said the OP should know that this post was over the top IMO.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: While harsh, and the fact that I disagree with the poster, I think we need such discussions to properly vet our potential candidates.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: It is Democratic bashing get rid of it. I am generally critical of Hillary I also find this offensive.
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: This is Democratic Underground and Clinton is a Democrat. If you think she is a poor choice posting something that is blatantly inflammatory and insulting like this is a terrible way to communicate that feeling. I agree with some things you wrote, but this is way over the top and you gave zero information on how she is so horrible. Link to articles, provide quotes, etc. People aren't fucking psychics and you're attacking a relatively popular Democrat on a Democrat message board. Use your brain.
Juror #7 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

Think about having them run that woman hating antichoice drone from PA, Casey, who was pushed here on DU because he was good on a few issues dear to men.

How about the guy who held up the ACA because he didn't realize the Hyde law already banned public money from being used on abortion, that pious idiot Baucus?

Evan Bayh is another one they could run, a shadow of his father and another conservative.

There are many truly wretched candidates the party could give us. At least Clinton is good on social issues, even though her foreign policy and economic policy are not what we need now.

I will be supporting Sanders if he runs, all the way through the primaries. If Clinton is the nominee, I will vote for her.

I think we need to do better, but while conservatives are entrenched at the top of the party, we won't.

Until then, the primaries are when we remind the inside the beltway movers and shakers that the party is still composed of people who are farther left than they are and that we won't be tame forever. There is nothing like hungry people to upset the political applecart and we're getting there.

To sociopathic conservatives, any spending whatsoever on public goods is too much, unless it is in their district. Governors in CA and MN have raised taxes, leading to budget surpluses and economic prosperity in those states. Contrast KS and WI. Taxation creates jobs in the public sector, and people with those jobs spend money on local businesses, thus boosting the private sector (in addition to the direct benefits of infrastructure).

Please stop spreading conservative bullshit.

I don't believe anyone who is a democrat believes any spending is bad. Raising taxes on ones who can afford to pay those taxes as in the 50's will be the way to go. Raising taxes on lower income individuals and families IS NOT THE WAY TO GO. Taxing all in an unfair way is not the way to run a government. You did not address the unfair aspect of the tax code in this country. Taxing individuals for corporate greed is not the way to go. Taxing individuals who live in the mountains to pay for new conveniences for those who live on the shore is not the way to go. Cutting taxes of the individuals who make far too little in money as it is, should be the way to go. Taxing farmers who pollute the bay should happen, The tax % corporations making billions should not be smaller then the % of an individual making 20,000 per year. Yes taxes do help create jobs, but you did not also state, when consumers have MORE spendable income, not less will spur the creation of those jobs. You tax someone to death, and they are not going to spend. Corporations and governments are NOT job creators, the middle class, lower middle class and upper middle class workers are the job creators. You continue to tax them in out of bound ways and you will see the jobs disappear.

181. Yeah, she might win - but then what?

 

A guarantee of more war, more austerity, more horrible trade agreements, more weakening of civil rights, and more widening of the wealth gap. Meanwhile the Democratic base will CHEER!

At least if a Republican wins the Democratic base will go back to opposing those things.

119. Some say the Democratic Party has deserted the workers, they have it backwards.

Sorry but it was the American workers that deserted the unions. I saw it happen in my own company. Young workers bought the Republican propaganda hook, line and sinker. They refused to join the union saying they wouldn't support corrupt union leaders with the hard earned money. The fact was that the shop stewards were fellow workers and the union have never been accused of any wrong doing let alone convicted of any charge. The instances of corrupt union leaders was primarily limited to the Teamsters who were kicked out of AFL-CIO. Union membership plummeted along with wages, pensions and health care. I hand it to the Republicans that ran a brilliant campaign of selling lies to the working class. The end result has been that labor has little influence on elections and can not get their candidates nominated. When the unions were strong that could demand that representatives actually represented their interests. That void has been filled by corporations who finance the candidates of their choice who are naturally beholding to those who made their election possible. The situation was bad enough but the Republican Supreme Court dealt the working class the final blow with the Citizens United decision. Wait if they control the House, Senate and Whitehouse. They are determined to overturn every piece of progressive legislation. Say goodbye to Social Security, Medicare, ACA, Labor Board, public education, 40 hour work week, minimum wage, child labor, EPA, OSHA, universities will become 19th century bastion for the wealthy only, labors don't need to be educated, etc.,etc., ad nausam.

Are you serious? I have followed Hillary Clinton since she worked on the Watergate Hearings in the 1970s. She will make a great president. I will proudly cast my vote for the her. Millions of women are leading the way. She will bring lots of Dems into office too. Do you understand politics? I find you totally uninformed.

137. Um... "we are literally fucking ourselves" if we sulk and stay home because she's the nominee.

Then we fuck ourselves all the way to the next Supreme Court nomination. GUARANTEED: if a CON gets to do the picking because the CON got into the White House because OUR SIDE sulked and stayed home on Election Day, here's what we'll get in a Supreme Court nominee:
1) Relatively young - will be able blight the court for several decades. (It'll be a LONG time before john roberts and samuel alito age out. and JUST LOOK at how clarence thomas and antonin scalia are managing to hang on, too.)
2) INCREASINGLY hard-ass CONservative in their outlook. Do you think for one nanosecond that jeb bush or scott walker or ben carson or chris christie or governor oops or mike huckabooboo or any of those other fuckheads would choose someone who's even moderate in his or her judicial leanings OR past rulings????
3) Completely disingenuous in Senate hearings. They're NOT going to tip their hand about how they intend to rule on issues surrounding a woman's right to choose, or the people's right to vote, or the right to collective bargaining, or corporate personhood, or the Affordable Care Act, or immigration reform, or extremist Christianist infiltration of our government, or any of that. They WON'T tip their hands. They'll be well-schooled in how to respond to pointed questions from Dems on the Judiciary committee - how to dodge, how to bob 'n' weave and sound noncommittal and open-minded. THEY WON'T BE ANYTHING OF THE KIND, in their heart-of-hearts. But they'll try to soothe worried Dems on the committee that Roe v Wade is settled law and all that. They will do EVERYTHING they can, and say ANYTHING they think will work, to get the job, and then rule for the teabaggers and Troglodytes now and forever more amen.

You can take THAT to the bank.

Better you take it to the VOTING BOOTH. Just Fuckin' DO IT.

139. Great thread! I've really learned a lot from DU.

for example, Bill Clinton was a terrible president! ZOMFG! Terrible!

Also, Hillary Clinton doesn't have ANY positions on ANY issues! Nobody can say what she believes in! I defy anybody in the world to say what Hillary believes in! All she cares about is money! And herself! Vomit inducing!!!!1!!!!

Other Democratic candidates would be SOOO much better than Hillary, and they would be SOOO different!

This thread reminds me why I rarely do more than scan the front page of DU... there's way too much utter nonsense. If I'm going to read political analysis, I want to read what smart people have to say.

It amazes me that there are people here with 20,000, 30,000, 40,000 posts, and they seem to have absolutely no aptitude for politics.

157. Glenn Greenwald nutshelled why I personally don't like Hillary

“The ultimate guardian of bipartisan status quo corruption”

We need a revolution to rid almost all of our Institutions of the rampant corruption that's been corroding our Democracy. Hillary will certainly never bite the corrupt hands that have fed her for most of her political career.

I'll fight against her hard in the primaries and I would of course vote for her if she was the nominee.

And another thing is the bush-clinton-bush-obama-clinton dynasty thing. Seems like more dynasty than democracy to me? But I do wonder if I'd feel the same if Hillary handled herself and believed in the things Eleanor Roosevelt did, when Hil was Bill's first lady. In other words, I could stomach a dynasty a lot more if Hillary was a career liberal and walked the walk as a liberal for her public life. You could transplant Jamie Dimon's soul into Hillary and nobody would notice the difference.

there, there:

Hear, hear vs. here, here

Hear, hear (usually with a comma and set apart as a self-contained sentence) is the conventional spelling of the colloquial exclamation used to express approval for a speaker or sentiment. It’s essentially short for hear him, hear him or hear this, hear this, where these phrases are a sort of cheer.

Here, here is widely regarded as a misspelling, although it is a common one, and there are ways to logically justify its use. But for what it’s worth, hear, hear is the original form (the Oxford English Dictionary cites examples going back to the 17th century) and is the one listed in dictionaries. English reference books mention here, here only to note that it’s wrong.

As for coming out on the issues WHILE A DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT IS IN OFFICE, I would consider it fucking rude to do that this early.

She didn't cause Citizens United. Stop blaming her for dealing with it.

Remember how Obama lied to your face about gay marriage? A woman who wants the support of sexist pig Wall Street needs to be very careful indeed.

Another thing I realized, after being accused of being KKKarl Rove himself ... it reminds me of the phenomena back immediately after 9/11 that was used to demonize anyone who criticized the President on invading Iraq. Phil Donahue was thrown off MSNBC, the massive protests were described by GWB as silly focus groups. And in this instance with anyone's opposition to HRC and the corporate DLC right wing of the Democratic Party, we are accused of being Republicans! It's behavior straight out of the Republican Party.

259. Tell us how you really feel, haha. While I wudn't use such strong language, like u, I'm definitely concerned bout Hillary as a candidate, but not just on the issues...

but also her ability to withstand the daily pounding she is certain to receive from multiple Rethug candidates that will be running, as those pukes fight it out among themselves. Hell, it's already started before they've even announced.

Her unfavorable rating is already starting to rise, as she keeps trying to "play it cool" and lay low in an obvious strategy to delay the inevitable announcement of her Presidential campaign, while questions about her conduct continue to surface, but go unanswered, to her detriment.

Then again, whenever Hillary does respond, either on the issues, where she has a bit of a "tin ear" that gets her in trouble, or to Repug attacks, which sometimes digs her an even deeper hole, the result is not pretty, as we saw during her "not ready for prime time" book tour that flopped.

I sure wish Elizabeth would announce her inevitable candidacy already and just get it over with, instead of waiting for a time certain when Hillary has her downfall and can't get up. Elizabeth would be making mincemeat right now of those Refucklian pricks on a daily basis, without needing to be coached by one of her hundreds of handlers, or reading some canned speech from a teleprompter that one of them prepared.

The Warren Era is upon us, I can feel it - and it can't come soon enough!

315. She is the choice of the 1%. They owe her. She didn't make it in 2008 and imo, she won't make it

this time either.

But those who run these things probably don't care which of the two carefully chosen contestants actually win, THEY win no matter what.

Because they will never allow someone who is likely to topple their decades long, carefully constructed power grab, to even be considered for that job.

They need caretakers. The people are waking up so it's all the more urgent that they have people placed in the government who are likely to protect THEIR interests.

Which is why I think the people should focus on Congress, the Senate, and local elections.

If we had a strong Congress working for the people, THAT is the best way to upset the 'system' they have set up.

I don't think it should be labeled as a lessor of two evils or as democrat versus republican contest as both seem to be dismissive of the true potential danger to the democratic party, the nation and to the 99% of us.

If we elect Hillary and she turns out to be another faux democrat like her husband and Obama have, and they continue to gut the middle class, there will be no meaning full or purpose driven democratic party to support come 2020.

320. Civil rights?

Really, like all the work she did at State and before for women's rights, or does that not count? You know, only women, the half of the world that doesn't count.

Health care? Remember her trying to implement single payer? Remember her proposals in the 2008 election? The only difference between she and Obama then was the mandate, but then he adopted it. So if Clinton is the devil on health care, so is Obama, which if you're a Democrat means you voted for the devil.

Off shoring to India? Where does that come from in regard to Clinton? And why of all countries have you chosen a BRIC to single out?

Where do you come up with this stuff? Make a list of all that the problems in the world and decide Clinton is the cause or the only politician complicit in them? I get that emoting is all kinds of fun, but if this is supposed to persuade anyone, it falls short.

Okay, so you see this as all about Clinton, who you deiced is the worst possible leader the country could even have. Fair enough. Who is your alternative? Now that we know all evil emanates from her and that she works furiously to make the world a worse place, who will make it all better?
