here is just one reason...

..... I stopped taking Hillary haters seriously a long time ago. After all these months/years, they still don't know what the definition of a f****** dynasty is. Check this thread out. Talking about one president. The Clinton Dynasty? WTF!! Had to get that off my chest. Carry on.

A genuine dynasty involves multiple generations, not just multiple people with the same last name.

Bushes: dynasty
Kennedies: dynasty
Clintons: two people

Plus, there are dozens of state-level dynasties going on all the time, everywhere in this country.

No surprise that BSers don't know what they're talking about, though. Pretty much their standard M.O. since Day One.

I like poking the hornets nest as well.

It's just kind of funny to me now because I've lost all respect for the BoBers. They can't have an honest discussion about any issue and they are so fragile. Their skin is rice paper thin.

If anything, I've noticed that Hillary is very careful when she talks about becoming the nominee. She always says, "If I should be lucky enough to be your nominee..." It's Bernie and Trump that always say, "When I'm PRESIDENT..."

No matter how a woman words it, some people can't get over their bias that a woman shouldn't be running in the first place.

...... to invoke hatred and fear of the evil empire that doesn't exist, which I believe they have adopted from the true evil empire. Their problem? It only works for them.

Some people are really stubborn. Like those refusing to understand that the name Democratic Underground doesn't mean this is an anti-Democratic site.

.... for supper. They were some nice potatoes but they did have a few bad spots in them which I promptly cut out. Then it hit me. Uh-huh, they may have gotten a little smaller but they're still some damn fine potatoes.

candidate is among the stupidest reasons not to vote for someone.
If they are a good candidate for the position that's all that matters.

People grasping for any reason to hate someone shows a huge lack of character.
