21. Respectfully, I think Clinton has endured enough...

Of the damning by imagining what she will do or has done for which there is no proof. Just people supposing.

This article doesn't veer that far off from what republicans do to the Clintons all the time: accusing them of being about to do something.

Criticize her actual actions when they actually occur. That's valid. Clinton has stated clearly on multiple occasions that she will not support TPP in its current state. But again, respectfully, enough with the guilt by "could-have, might-just, maybe-will".

It's a technique that when employed by republicans lacks any nuance, or ability to imagine governance that isn't inherently corrupted.

And IMO, when employed by our side, it works against the stated purpose of this season, which is to get democrats elected.

Peace ~
