Clinton is already looking ahead to the GE campaign against Trump...

http://www.wsj.com/articles/clinton-digs-in-as-trump-moves-on-1459208576

As Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump aim to clinch their parties’ nominations, the former secretary of state is poised to start the general-election campaign with a far more sophisticated operation in key swing states than businessman.

4. It's gotta Burn the Bern

But life goes on. Hillary knows she will all but put Bernie away after those big east states like NY, NJ, PA.
It's only prudent to look at the future and get after the real foe....the Trumpster.

6. SHE'S ALREADY PUT HIM WAY!!!!!! (sorry to yell)

 

I don't give a DAMN what narrative other people are pushing. She's already put him away. I'm just sitting back and waiting until June because its official. I'm not getting worked up over nonsense because he won some caucus states over the weekend that put a little dent in her delegate lead. There are big states upcoming where he won't win by those margins to catch up to her delegate count. People can post whatever they want and say its not over until they are blue in the face and show me cartoons of little birdies all they want. I know math and yes while its not impossible, its improbable. So yes she should be pivoting to the general election.

5. I hate to say this, but after all I've learned

the image of suitcases full of money being handed out to those who comply comes to mind when she or her people talk as though the primaries have been decided. Hillary said from the beginning, "He's not gonna win".

I just don't have any faith that she even cares about the people outside of her new income bracket.

7. She's been running against the Republicans since she announced.

She's hardly mentioned Sanders until he broke his word and went negative.

Sanders is a distraction. Trump is the real threat. Priorities.

I think her candidacy shows how weak she is. Someone that has been running since 2007 can't put quite beat Bernie Sanders. She will cost us gains in the house, and gains in state and local government. She was the worst candidate out of the top three running, but she was better than Webb and Chafee.

But hey people find her trustworthy... oh wait.. honest.. oh wait.. capable.. oh wait. sincere... oh wait. Inspiring.. oh wait ... nevermind. She will be the best democratic candidate money can buy.

8. I think at this point, it's much more likely that Ted Cruz will be the nominee.

If Trump manages to pull out a win in Wisconsin, then yes, I do think he will be the nominee. However the GOP is attacking him on all fronts and it's working. I don't see Kasich getting the nomination without destroying the party, the age of television and the internet would bludgeon their party for it.

Leaving the only viable option, Cruz.

15. You're probably right.

They will try, I just don't think it will succeed without it destroying their party. There have been a handful of people who've jumped on the Cruz bandwagon, those people will need to stick with him as if they do not, it will double screw their party. In any case, a Costco run will be in order!

Lately Hillary supporters are trashing Bernie and those who believe in his ideas, before Hillary can truly take on the Republicans she will need most of Bernie's supports and continuing to trash talk about Bernie's backers will only make it harder for us all to move on.

12. I posted this in another thread...

but it needs repeating....

If it is Clinton v Trump in the GE...

Trump will turn to Clinton and say, "I gave money to both your campaign for Senate & the Clinton Foundation, in order to get the following favors, which you did. I personally know you do favors for rich donors, so please tell America what you promised to do for Wall Street and Pharma firms..." It will be at that moment she loses the GE.

I hope I am wrong l, but Trump already hinted at this during a debate and in speeches. If he does is, it would be devastating for the Hillary campaign.

16. Nope, 75% of women including 47% of Republican women won't vote for Trump

 

He has a 17% favorable ratings among Latinos and a nearly 80% unfavorable rating. His unfavorables are also sky high among Muslims, African Americans and Jews.

He can't get enough white Christian men to the polls to offset those problems.

... If there has been a survey that gives a breakdown that who would vote for a person that owes favors to wall street. Before you say it, because we follow politics we may know such is nonsense. But, do you trust those that don't and who have been bombarded by 30 years of anti-Hillary too -- especially when she seems to be in the pocket of those that stole their pension or house from them? I wouldn't bank on that.

25. Look, I'm sorry you have actually bought into the anti-Hillary campaign propaganda

 

most people won't. But let's assume they did. They are going to punish Hillary for the mortgage scandal by supporting a billionaire and one of the biggest real estate developers in the country who has done all kinds of shady real estate deals bailed himself out via bankruptcy several times and knowingly dealt with the mafia?

Oh and someone who also women despise and won't vote for, someone who Latinos despise and won't vote for, African Americans won't vote for, etc?

Is that what you would have me buy?

There is no narrative that gets you there.

..Say a whole group won't vote for someone because they are a member of said group.That is utterly racist and hateful. Tbe Black and Latino communities are not a homogeneous unit that votes one way or the other because they are a member of that community.

The implied threat came when you said I was new here and should head the warning of your 'explaining examples. Thus, implying I should step in line. I never hid what I posted or implied that I was. You can read all of them, reading of such still doesn't give you the right to accuse me of 'x:splaining'
