loud and clear what the party represented.Either Hillary wasn't out on the trail making firery speeches or they were not being aired. The public perception of her was that she was corporate owned and a war monger. No matter what the "platform" said that was not the perception of Hillary.

Bernie's speeches, like Obama's were stirring and united people to get out and fight for their causes. Hillary was too controlled in speech and lacked the appearance of passion. I know she is a very passionate person but perception is everything. The republicans did a superb job of destroying her rep as they have done in the past, destroying the reputation of our finest.
