If I were a Hillary supporter I'd be a bit hesitant about her campaign right now. She went nearly a month without answering a media question. Yes, I know she still matches up well against GOP candidates.

Anybody on the left side leaning away from her? Are you more curious about other Democratic Candidates?
Some people on the left might not be overwhelmingly enthused with her, as i think we have seen a little in this thread. Yet it still appears as though this race is Hillary's to lose. It's foolish to think that anyone on the left would yield to the republicans in 2016 because Hillary has a scandal or didn't talk to the media for 30 days.

As another poster said previously, there were plenty of scandals around both of the Clinton's during the entire presidency. While some of those scandals obviously hurt them, overall, their legacy remains intact.

All a person really has to do is take a good look at Hillary and then take a good look at her opponents on the other side, and draw their own conclusion.

The GOP will once again be tripping over themselves to oppose same sex marriage and Obamacare, two issues which seem to have the majority of support among voters. And as usual, the extreme fringe of the GOP (Cruz, tea party) will go out of their way to make the entire GOP field look bad. Just like Santorum did in 2012.

I really don't see the pathway for her to lose to any of these guys.

I personally have a lot of reservations about Hillary, this last month has not changed those.

But there is not a single Republican that I'd vote for over her. Those guys are a special breed of crazy and not fit to govern.

Exactly, she's not my most ideal candidate, but there certainly wouldn't be a chance in hell of any Republican candidate (announced, presumed, or otherwise) getting my vote, if I had one that is. All things considered I don't see how a Hillary Clinton presidency would be a genuinely bad thing for America, barring some catastrophe outside of her control, a major health issue (depending on her choice of VP), or some sort of psychotic break straight out of an episode of 24.

That's the GOP and their voter's problem. They probably could have won this election if they chose someone middle of the road, but they honestly think moving further right is their answer. The tea party has ruined their immediate future.

I fucking loathe the tea party. I guess if there is any light to them, it's that they are exposing themselves on a regular basis and somehow think that is ...okay. This whole world might have gone completely fucking nuts, and im just one person in this world, but im fucking nuts too, but i wont be that kind of fucking nut. I am just afraid that someday they will win. The fact that they do so well in the mid terms is depressing/scary/dangerous enough. Fucking hell with them.

Vlad, we get it. The US ideals of the left don't live up to the text book definition.

Who do you support?
Because it seems that your ideals are far left of Trotsky.

Most of the board seems to be super-left. I'm a conservative. What about you Bob? Are you somewhere in between on the spectrum.

If Bernie Sanders isn't liberal enough for some people here, yes that's scary.

I'm a mixed bag. I have mostly Libertarian leanings, but agree with Conservatives on some social issues, such as abortion, but I don't align myself with the Tea Party or even most Republicans. I think the Tea Party has really torn the party apart. Which isn't exactly the worst thing because Establishment Republicanism is full of scumbags and people who are far behind the times. But their approach has not been very good and the radicals have overthrown the people who wanted to make a difference.
I can't seem to find anything that I can agree with in regards to Liberals. I'm sort of just in the middle on some topics, but don't lean liberal at all. I'd more than likely be abducted by aliens than vote for a liberal.

Well a couple of you have chimed in that you wish Obama governed more Left. And some media is not left enough for you. Sorry to clump you all in to the 'Super' category.

Thanks Bob for your feedback

I for one don't think Bernie Sanders is liberal enough...but I'm in favor of a universal basic income and way stronger regulations on certain areas of business such as oil companies and finance. Plus I'm far left on social issues

Sounds like paradise. What we really need is the government to take full control and overthrow the private sector; we then must allow someone to take a full dictatorship. Getting chills just imagining how great the future would look.
