Mmmmmm. Don't tempt me. But I am not trying to hurt the Clintons MaxRobes Mar 2015 #12
Its allright to want a real primary but trashing one of the candidates is not a way Thinkingabout Mar 2015 #29
Well it is if that candidate is standing in the way of having a primary. MaxRobes Mar 2015 #43
Which candidate is standing in the way? Thinkingabout Mar 2015 #45

Yes, but not only the Clintons, the Party. Please see Reply 55 below. merrily Mar 2015 #56
I think you are wrong, in fact the primary would get any candidate practice in the General Election Thinkingabout Mar 2015 #57
Let me add this, if Hillary or any candidate cant handle the primary then we need a better candidate Thinkingabout Mar 2015 #59

Amy Klobuchar. She is my home state and home town Senator. She is very popular in MaxRobes Mar 2015 #18
She and Warren will not run. hrmjustin Mar 2015 #19

Let me ask you a question, you talk about Hillary getting paid for her speeches, she's qualified Thinkingabout Mar 2015 #10
$300,000 for a speech is legalized bribery, imo. See reply above. MaxRobes Mar 2015 #23
Let's go with my question, did you worj and did you receive compensation? Thinkingabout Mar 2015 #26
Yes,I worked for pay in the economy for roughly 40 years and was paid fairly MaxRobes Mar 2015 #33
This is what she could command. Attorneys gets paid much more than what i was Thinkingabout Mar 2015 #37
We are all sorry you have no grasp on economics. Think of it this way, FSogol Mar 2015 #40
