81. This is self-serving and out of context again, the hallmark of the Clinton bashers.

Your statement that she traded her cooperation with Obama for a State position is just more out-of-context wishful thinking. Obviously you haven't read her book where she starts out detailing how that offer for the position came about at Obama's lead and insistence. Ascribing something underhanded or sinister and hinting there was some kind of pay to play about two Democrats working together sounds like Guiliani's rhetoric.

And rehashing the 2008 primaries blow by blow still doesn't equal the realities of what happened with Sanders who was clearly out of contention early on. Sanders main crutch was unabated Clinton bashing. It was just plain irresponsible what he was doing, which is probably why he lost the primary. Hating billionaires is not a policy proposal. Hating Clinton is not a policy proposal.

What is flailing is insisting that third party voters who openly stated they wanted to influence elections with protest votes didn't happen. It did happen.
