57. It can be. Especially when a rather large state still hasn't voted.

I wish my fellow Hillary supporters would remember that she didn't concede to Obama until after the final votes were cast in 2008.

Even after that, it may take a few more infuriating statements from Trump before people decide that anything's better than that orange troll in office. (Seriously, not only do several pictures of his hair look like those troll dolls, but he is probably the political version of an Internet troll.)

I've been on the fence about whether or not to vote for Hillary in the general if she's the nominee, but the events of the last couple of weeks have settled it. In my mind, my vote is wasted whether it goes to Hillary or Trump.

They've been pushing Hillary this entire campaign to the detriment of everyone who's run against her. They're pushing a candidate with historical negatives when Bernie is there performing better in every GE poll. They're alienating new voters while disenfranchising half of their own party.

93. Who gives a damn?

Your party is set to run against the most unpopular major party nominee in polling history. So, you chose the second most unpopular nominee. She is not liked, not trusted, and polls worse versus Trump than Sanders. Her top donors are banks and corporate interests (she's gotten more money from Wall Street than all the other candidates combined), she has a center-right economic record, is hawkish. You elect that person and want to blame others? Why would anyone give a damn? It's nonsense. No one's fault but those that supported that weak candidate. If you lose, learn a lesson, don't blame everyone but yourself.

The fact is that Hillary is a serious flawed candidate.

Who are you going to blame if she's the nominee and gets indicted for mishandling national security data?

Who are you going to blame is she's president and she attempts to means-test Social Security and gets all the Third Way and Republican support, effectively killing it?

Who are you going to blame when she gets us into several more wars, producing a Treasury-draining quagmire on this country?

Who are you going to blame when she signs off on TPP and sends what few good manufacturing jobs we have left overseas?

85. If the Republicans actually get a veto-proof majority

And you're still blaming Bernie, then there clearly would need to be a LOT more soul-searching in the Democratic party. If Hillary loses and the blame somehow goes to Bernie supporters, that would be really sad. People are supporting Bernie because she's not acting in a way that's healing the rift, and if she pivots even more right for the general she might alienate them even further.

The main scary bit is the supreme court - which really is a problem, but still, having motivation to vote for someone besides fear is crucial. Hillary has a large number of policy positions which I extremely dislike, and I very much dislike how she's campaigned and her general conduct. Of course it would be better to have a Democrat in the oval office, but when it has been made it so clear that I'm not wanted, it's very easy to throw up my hands and say "well fine, screw you too!"

While that sentiment is a bit childish, I think there's a lot of truth in the fact that the party is going to have to move more left in the future, and getting those voices in now is crucial. Hillary would be a lot more palatable to me personally if she made more concessions... Something convincing, not just throwaway campaign rhetoric.

Try not lied to.

She's a sleazebag.

And your post is pretty low rent as well.

The now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary when she worked on the Watergate investigation, says Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther – and goes much deeper – than anyone realizes.

Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career.

Why?

“Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

these leftists and them asking for something more than being less bad than the modern Republican Party. It's like they've been harmed by policies the Democratic Party is working hard to cement. I take pride in the fact that I don't demand anything from the Democrats, outside of being less bad than the Republicans. I'm also removed from the harm caused by the policies that the Clintons have supported, and I have no interest in putting myself in the shoes of those harmed.

I find it interesting that people are beside themselves because they have to now earn the left's vote. It's beneath so many Clinton and DWS supporter, I tell ya.

I doubt they're no more than 10% (maximum 20%) of Bernie supporters.

27. Well...The best reply here is "Okay, then don't"

No point in trying to argue about it and try to change someone's mind. Anybody who is so vehemently opposed to Hillary is not going to persuaded by any argument. Best to focus one's efforts on more fruitful endeavors.

In view of the prospect of an anoymous poster on the internet, blaming me personally for a candidate's alienation of a good portion of her already shaky base, well, I guess I'd just have to rethink my position.

Hm...

OK. Done. No change.

74. Well, the other side of the coin is to not blame anybody

Me personally, I don't blame you for not voting for Hillary. I'm not going to try to change your mind, because, chances are, you've heard all the arguments before and they haven't convinced you. So I'd be wasting my time. On the other hand, telling me you'll never vote for her makes me wonder why you're telling me this. What am I supposed to do about that? If that's how you feel, then fine. Follow your conscience. Again, I don't cast blame. You do what you feel is right, and I'll do the same.

100. I wasn't referring to you in particular, but to those who state they won't vote for Hillary

Basically I'm saying that I don't care who people vote for, nor do I require a loyalty oath. Vote for whomever you like. I just don't understand the purpose of flooding this board with emphatic statements of "I will never vote for Hillary". Hence my original post as to what my response to that would be: "Okay, then don't".
Incidentally, I've been on record as being on the fence. So all this animosity on both sides is pretty baffling.

33. if they can vote for trump - what does it say about them?

trump is willing to say anything and do anything to win. He identifies scapegoats and makes it all everyone else's fault.

Hillary talks about hard work and personal responsibility.

Anyone who votes for trump over Hillary is looking for a free handout - and will be disappointed in trump as he's going to give more money to the rich - himself included.

Hillary made her money the old fashioned way - through hard work. Even her speeches were paid for when she was in business for herself. Why do we have the right to see what her what she gave her clients.

Meanwhile, trump complains about china but does most of his manufacturing there. And people think he's going to look out for our manufacturing base? it's nonsensical and insulting to anyone with intelligence. Even Letterman pulled out a trump tie made in china when trump was ranting about our manufacturing going overseas.

...absolutely loath Hillary Clinton. To them, she's another GWB or Nixon... even worse... So, forget bringing them to vote for the eventual Democratic nominee. The belief that she is evil (or whatever word applies) is not reversible. Probably, it's wiser to concentrate on making sure the base gets to the polls and count on Independents and Republicans to either stay hope or vote against Trump. There will be some Sanders supporters who will crossover to Hillary, also. Still thinking it's a win for our side!

40. Have we considered giving the nomination to the guy that didn't win the primaries?

That should unify the party.

I voted for the guy in my state caucus but its over, let it go. I like his ideas too but he isn't Super Jesus here to save the world from evil. Nobody stole millions of votes from him or hundreds of delegates. There isn't going to be some bombshell Clinton arrest or leaked transcripts of Clinton telling a room full of bankers that she will gladly take bribes from them. He lost, that is what happens in a democracy. You don't win every time. Not everyone gets a trophy. Not everything is a vast conspiracy. Not everyone is ready to light the world on fire when every little thing doesn't go their way.

Don't expect that everyone is going to kiss your ass forever to get your vote. There are a lot of people in this country with a lot of view points, don't think you are deserving of extra special attention. If you are saying "Bernie or Bust" then your option is bust at this point. He isn't going to be president. Not through yelling at superdelegates, not by threatening to riot like '68 at the convention, not by writing in his name in November. He lost, it sucks, but he had his chance, stop trying to shove him down the throats of the people that didn't want him as the nominee.

59. If you can get past her foreign policy, her ties to Wall St, her constant evolving,then vote for her

I just think it is reprehensible to guilt others who are struggling though a very difficult choice with crap like "she's not Trump".

I vote for a candidate, not against one anymore. I'll be voting down the line for Dems on the undercard, and no one has to guilt me into that. The question that really needs to be asked is does this candidate offer us the best option to beat Trump? The answer in poll after poll is no. The question needs to be has this candidate's record represent the values you could be proud of voting for? For me, no.

Please vote for who you want to. But please show your respect in allowing people to make their own informed choice in candidates they can back.

If you feel HRC is the best choice, show me why, not that she's not as bad as the other guy. Don't threaten me with your fears over the supreme court, but with your hopes for the vision she brings to the coming years with her plan. Show me her record that tries to bring peace to the world and improvement in all our lives.

I think rather than castigating those who've looked at her record and found it lacking cou;d be persuaded without the better than the devil argument.

This is on HER, not ME or any other Bernie supporter.

SHE sold out to Wall Street

SHE voted for endless war

SHE decided to skirt the rules regarding he email server & the handling of classified materials

SHE has embraced corporations over people

SHE chose to use public office for personal enrichment

SHE supported welfare "reform" and mass incarceration of POC in the 1990s

Don't try to hang this crap on me. I've never gone over to the dark side and I'm sure as hell not going to because some Hillary apologist wants to make ME out to be the bad guy.

Sorry, I'm not selling out just so your beloved HRC can rule over the great unwashed while continuing to hoard cash. How much is enough? Her greed is appalling, and I will not endorse it or her 3rd Way policies by voting for her.

IT'S ON HER, NOT ME!!!

with a rationale for eventually losing to Trump, should she actually be the nominee.

There'd be too much dissonance involved in blaming her for being so beatable in the GE. They obviously can't blame themselves, despite the piss-poor case they've made for her (which largely amounts to "Sanders supporters suck" and "Don't expect much from her" since early on.
