It's just stunning delusion.
Exactly.

If Hillary is blamed for the conservatism of Bill's domestic policy (which I don't agree with, womanfish makes a good case about), shouldn't she be praised for the internationalism of his foreign policy as well? It's like people pick and choose the issues to complain about very selectively.

Bill ran as a southern Democrat 4 years after the end of the Reagan presidency.

Hillary runs as a former New York Senator and Secretary of State for the most internationalist and liberal President in half a century.

Does Hillary have any substantial differences in her economic policy from Bill? I'm genuinely curious.

I've literally brought up almost every single point in the trucker's opinion that PhilsFan posted. But I guess those aren't valid points if they come from me...at this point, if some people can't realize why the history of the Clintons makes so many on the left fearful, then there's no point in even continuing the discussion. Boiled down to its essence, it's decades of policies and positions that liberals absolutely loathed.

After all, there's a reason nearly three million people voted Nader in 2000.

Seriously, wtf? You don't think liberals will hold accountable anybody that does that shit? Because we certainly will.

The problem isn't that she was a woman taking money from Goldman Sachs, it's that she was taking money from Goldman Sachs.

Sometimes it's all about articulation. Plus I think when you constantly pepper your posts with complete and utter bullshit like Clinton will be more of a hawk than Trump you lose all credibility.

And she wasn't in office!!! So who gives a shit. That's the point. Bernie's writing a book now. So i guess he's in the pocket of big publishing.

And don't be coy about it. The question was always - Why did you get paid SO MUCH? meaning it must be nefarious because she obviously couldn't demand that fee by
just being the First lady, 2 term NY senator, SOS and 20 time most admired woman in the world right?

I guess for some people, you must be pure of heart to be any good. No mistakes ever, no flip flopping.

It reminds me of a David Brent quote, "A good idea is a good idea forever"

Hillary Clinton bizarre tick video.

Mini-Seizure? Demonic Possesion? Reptilian Shift? Or just a brain freeze from that Cold Chai?

Wait, Bernie is writing a book? Oh he better not get any revenue from this or I'm staging a fart in at one of his book signings.

Everybody knew she would be running again in 2016. That's the problem. If you don't think people have been buying themselves political favors with her either directly or through the Clinton Fund, then you're as naive as they come.

so the moral of your little story is you aren't allowed to make any money if there's a chance you might be running for office some day. okayyyy

Hillary Clinton, the person women can trust on abortion.

Or maybe not since she decided to choose a VP who refuses to stop favoring the Hyde Amendment.

No, the moral is that people running for office shouldn't be accepting what are essentially bribes from corporations. If it were a Republican like Romney doing the same shit, you'd all be having a field day with it.

Honestly, take away her history with the party and none of you would be supporting a candidate that voted for the War in Iraq, gave glowing speeches to Goldman Sachs, etc. Plenty of you are twisting your values so that you can pretend that Clinton's politics fit firmly within them.
