91. This same tired rhetoric was used about Al Gore. He was picked to death, including

such petty comments he was actually questioned about by reporters about wearing khaki. He was lied about by Nader with the obvious whopper that both parties are the same. The bottom line is indisputable that "independents" claimed to want progressive policies, but have no problem letting those goals go to achieve disruption; so we got Bush. Every candidate is going to have close margins in states that are up for grabs. That's not new to Clinton, but obviously if you don't mind Republican policies, then you don't mind throwing away your vote and living with the consequences.

And, LOL, the Republicans sure found someone "inspiring". So what does "inspiring" even mean. The Fox News type and Republicans find unreality "inspiring". Now we have a reality star as President.

And Sanders stayed in because of her email situation hoping she would be indicted. His wife even admitted that under her breath in interviews. He saw she was defeated in 2008 and saw an opening to push her aside, so he exploited that without being accountable for anything he said. He should never have been allowed to continue his attacks against her without proving his comments to be true. He was asked to substantiate his smears against her and he was unable to do so. That was completely unacceptable.

What's funny is how some purists/independents have now turned on Sanders because he endorsed Hillary. It shows the destructive and disjointed mindset of the third party.
