12. Ain't we grand!
Mon Jun 6, 2016, 09:28 PM
Jun 2016

Clinton will most likely be the nominee and may just eke out a win against Trump. And just minutes after taking her hand off of the Bible for the Oath of Office, she will be handed the first of many, many summonses and subpoenas. What a tragedy that the first Female POTUS will end up the most embattled POTUS and only serve one term, if she actually makes it to full term, which I somewhat doubt.

What a fucking loss for this country and the Democratic Party that the unbridled Clinton self-absorption, greed and hubris were allowed to rule the day. This could have been a glorious opportunity to re-align the Democratic Party and breathe new life into both our party and country, but instead, as a nation and a party, we are now forced to cater to the Amerikan Oligarchy and their sycophants.
