Hillary gets things done: moved to NY 20 years ago to set up her run for President

Along the way she did countless rubber chicken dinners up and down the party all over the country.

Cynical, self-serving, carpetbagging...maybe, maybe, maybe... but it worked.

That's the difference between someone with a plan and someone who just hides out in Vermont (to people in New York, Vermont = ski slopes in winter).

Her moving to New York was not because she got a sudden patriotism or stronger feelings for New Yorkers than anybody else, but for a political career where she could be close to her REAL "family" - Wall Steet bankers.

She has never worked her way up from local democrat, getting to know her constituents intimately (save from Wall Steet bankers off course).
She didn't kick the ground as a child in Brooklyn or Queens. She was down south, living in a mansion as a governor's wife.

Her plan was her own ambition and personal gain.

Bernie's plan has been to represent his voters - the People! I know it's a difficult notion to grasp ones head around, but the world is more than identity politics and pandering for personal gain. Some people are genuine. Some are panderers who flips opinions depending on the crowd they are in.
That's why one getting obscenely rich and hides money in Delaware, and one making less a year than one speech on Goldman Sach (allegedly to tell them to "cut it out"!)

That's about the most truthful post about Hillary I've read - cynical, self-serving, etc. Good job!
