54. The Purity Party, AKA Hillary deniers, are out in force. There is no logic that can be

 

explained any clearer than this: If I had to raise over a billion dollars in a couple of years (this would be any candidate, BTW) just to play the game of national politics, I'd better damn well be "obsessed" about it. First of all to prove to the donors I could go the distance, then to, yes, do a number of dances that will give them a say in how that immense amount of money is spent. Deal with it.

And reading the entire thread, all I have to say is "Picky, picky picky". NO ONE is going to have all their cherished and well-polished political gemstones tied up all neatly in a little velvet bag because there are like 150 million ??? voters and just over half of them are going to pick who is in the White House next.

The Democratic Candidate Schizophrenia called...We hate corporations, but we need a billion dollars to even play the game...is almost too ignorant to state.

The Democratic Voting Schizophrenia is ... We didn't get our precious way (along with most of the voters). so I'm going to elect a Republican, oh, excuse me, stay home.

Discuss and Debate and LISTEN, although the group mentioned in the Title don't seem to get what that means. Then participate in Democracy and support the Imperfect Candidate...no one gets to have it all.

One Billion Dollars. That's a glaring result...just one... of what the last Republican got us. Citizen's United. That's where the angst should be, but because it is beyond our puny little one-vote power to address that travesty, we attack our own for playing the rules set by the other side. Same for the down-ticket imbalance results of gerrymandering districts, but that's another story.

We should fear Candidate Jeb Bush because he has a smidge of respectability (comparably speaking), but it's looking more like ignoramus and mentally deficient Scott Walker. Sweet Mother of Democratic Sanity, this is a gift, albeit very expensive, but we need to start wrapping it...soon.

I'm neutral, but I can't see anyone but Hillary who can be "obsessed" enough and savvy enough and tough as nails enough and able to understand and willing to deal with the blind, white-hot Republican hatred, as well as the above-mentioned cases of Democratic schizophrenia to raise the money, work her ass off and see this through to the results of a Democrat in the White House. (and maybe a VP Hispanic-in-training up next.)
