My understanding is his wife is solidly opposed to him being on the ticket.

I cannot tolerate this liar and user of people. I will not support her. The ONLY way I would vote for Clinton if she were on the ticket Warren/Clinton 2016. And I highly doubt Elizabeth would pick her as a VP.

...and I could not, in good conscious vote for a ticket with her in the lead. I understand all that entails, and will make my peace with DU if/when that time comes.

Sherrod brown is no liberal.he proved it by saying no difference between clinton and bernie and going with clinton as more
"Electable"

he supports bill clinton in calling bernie supporters like tea party.

he played everybdy on tpp.he supported the pro-free trade deal candiate.so he really supports it and only pretends to be against
free trade deals.

Besides clinton will pick a centrist to be her running mate.

Liberals have no place in democratic party any more.

21. The two most important issues
Sat Feb 27, 2016, 11:18 PM
Feb 2016

for me, given the current state of our corrupt democracy, are the following:

1.) Removing the corrupt-corporate influence of money from our campaign-finance system. We don't have a democracy if our elected representatives are paid off and serving powerful interests, lobbyists and corporations.

2.) Breaking the neocon stranglehold on American foreign policy. I've read the PNAC manifesto "Rebuilding America's Defenses." Their goal is to dominate, control and plunder the resources from the Middle East to enrich the United States. Their plan involves endless war, the murder of untold innocents, trillions wasted, dead and disabled American soldiers--and continual lies thrown at the American people to justify these UNNECESSARY wars of profit. It's psychopathic.

These are my two central issues. In my opinion, if we don't fix these crises--and if we don't stop leaders from perpetrating these crimes--then the foundation of our democracy is gone.

I cannot and will not vote for any candidate who is not serious about working on 1 and 2. If they are participating in the horrors of 1 and 2--then I could never vote for them.

Their choice of VP, campaign promises, gender, political party or popularity would be absolutely irrelevant to me.

Clinton will be the nominee. Let the Sanders people leave and do their own thing. They'll be happier and the Party will come out stronger for it having happened.

She's all about herself. You can buy into that if you like, thinking that she's on your side, but many of us will not.
