It really seems like this is a joke

It should be pointed out that Clinton spent millions on advertisements with nothing to show for it...she got her DNC bounce and then Trump has really dug his own grave as the days have gone on, but all of the money Clinton spent on advertisements in June/July leading up to the convention didn't move the needle in her direction whatsoever and she lost ground to the guy that wasn't spending a dime.

It speaks partly to Clinton's unlikability that the advertisements didn't make a difference but probably more so to the fact that political bombardment via ads is really just a wasteful expense in modern day politics. Just ask Sheldon Adelson when he spent $100,000,000 on races the Republicans all lost in 2012. The share of ill informed and politically stupid voters that these television advertisements have targeted in the past has dwindled to nothing in our polarized and much better educated society.

Oh, well that settles it then.

Honestly, show of hands. Who in here thinks Monica is the only one that Bill had a fling with? Who in here thinks all of the women that accused him of assault are liars? And who in here thinks Hillary Clinton was never truly aware of this activity until he admitted the Lewinski fling to the American people?
Who in here thinks that focusing on the sexual indiscretions of her husband and what she may or may not have known about them is a complete distraction from the real issues of the day?

You then tell me how someone can be considered a feminist icon when they've acted in that fashion.

It must be easy living in such a black and white world.

There's nothing better than a man telling a woman what her feminism should look like.

Mrs. Clinton's own political dreams were dependent on her husband. If she had kicked him to the curb at the time, it would have a thrown an...ummm...monkey wrench into things !

Yes, there's no other possible reason she stayed with him.

Glad we've got her figured out.

So let's say this is true...

Okay. So what? Who gives a crap, and why does that preclude her from being President?

It's not an alter of any of my associates. Just a new poster that follows the credo ....

Sanders < Trump < John Cusack

It doesn't preclude her from any office, of course.

I was responding to BMP's question of why Mrs. Clinton would help steamroll multiple females accusing her husband of serious misconduct.

So then is Trump's marriage misconduct on the table? No? Oh sorry *sweep under rug

I always forget. Different rules for Republicans. Different rules for men.
