5. Since Bernie is not nominee we must work twice as hard to get Clinton elected

Bernie supporters warned everyone that all the polls show him beating Trump by a much higher margin than Clinton. The reason is hate radio etc has been calling for listeners to hate Clinton for 25yrs now, and all the debunked and discredited baggage she carries has produced a lot of hatred toward her. One could say this election is based on who is hated most in some respect. Sanders had no history of hate and no baggage of contempt and I feel he would have been an easier candidate to get elected. But Clinton is what we got and so we must work twice as hard to get a democrat elected. I hope she gets ahead of those quarter million dollar speeches she gave to Wall street firms etc by mocking them for offering so much to hear her speak and say "Of course I felt I was worth it and since they have so much money to throw around why not...but it doesn't influence my perspective in their favor because I stand for the people"...or something to that effect.
A big mistake is to ignore any Clinton negativity 'cause you just don't want to hear it. It's like the emails...it's just not that big of a deal...no real harm was ever done no matter how much repubs like to pretend.. Know her and know there really is no deal breaker...then push her left and demand she stand with the American people over Wall street and the Big banks like Goldman-Sachs
