Oh boy imagine her in a tank wearing a combat helmet.
Trump would win in a Nixon-esque landslide. (Or if Cruz were her opponent, he would get 37% of the votes instead of 14%)

On a superficial note, can I talk about how much I hate Hillary's stylist? So many people already perceive her as being somewhat akin to a villain out of a dystopian youth novel and then they dress her in these awful trenchcoats and looong suit jacket coats constantly that she really fits that description. It's awful.

Can you imagine how the media etc. would react to her (or any women) if she presented herself with Bernie's scruffiness, though?

Impossible, she wouldn't have even been elected dog catcher in that case.

Being a woman in politics must really blow a lot of the time.

I thought I'd get in trouble if I mentioned her funny clothes.

colorful jackets, the reason why I frequently watches congressional hearing and speeches from Elizabeth Warren.

He totally looks like a mad scientist. I think the media just didn't react to him because he wasn't really seen as a legitimate threat for a very long time and by then he was already seen as crazy grandpa.

To be fair, a number of the men in this election season have been lambasted for their appearance much more than Hillary has. The orangutan Trump, Chris Christie and his many bags of M&Ms, Ted Cruz looking like a rapist/serial killer, etc. I guess you can argue if a woman looked like Trump she'd never be where he is, but then I'm still shocked HE is where he is so there's that.

Unless I missed it, I really believe that Bernie could actually gain some brownie points with the general public if he told some of his supporters that throwing dollar bills at Hillary is completely immature and that they need to act with more class.

Throwing dollar bills at Hillary - or even Trump for that matter is pretty apt.

Throwing dollar bills at Trump is quite literally tossing good money after bad.
