@104 "more liberal than 70% of her fellow Democrats..."

THAT'S THE FUCKING PROBLEM. Her right wing notions are considered left by the people we're supposed to consider the left. Her economic policies are considered center right in most of Europe.

Democrats aren't a liberal party. They're centrist at best.

@97 Not really all that secretly...

Her right wing fiscal stances are fairly out in the open, and just got underlined by her VP choice. Of course, if you buy into the stances that she briefly and tenuously held during the primary season, she looks like a moderate candidate. If you do buy into that bullshit, I've got a few bridges to sell. One is down in South Park for the low low price of $50k. It's a fire sale.

*psst* here's a hint: TPP is a far right trade policy that she tried her damnedest to oppose during the primary. Some still believe she opposes it to this day.

@93 I'm really sick of entitled Clinton supporters complaining that far lefties are acting entitled by criticizing the moderate as hell candidate. God forbid that Clinton supporters actually acknowledge their candidate's flaws and faults.

So, yeah, the feeling is mutual.

@62 So, you support politicians selling a false bill of goods!

Good to know!

Has nobody realized that this is the Democrats' first post-recession primary? And they've nominated a candidate with strong ties to Wall Street?

Does nobody realize that this election is largely about trade and the economy (Bernie) with a strong undercurrent of racial relations (Clinton)? Does nobody realize that it's the economic recession that made Clinton so unpalatable to so many people?

@57 That was her plan all along and everybody knew it. Pretend to be a progressive long enough to snag the nomination, and then run right back to the right to snag the general.

But, don't you dare call her a moderate. The Clintonistas will totally cut your throat if you even dare suggest that she supports bad trade deals or takes money from Wall Street or The Saudis or is pro-Fracking (hi Tim Kaine!). She's just as progressive as Jill Stein, right guys?

*sigh*

@44 I'm not rationalizing idiocy. I'd rather see the Ds lose to Trump than to any of the other jackasses in the party.

@39 I say this unequivocally, Trump is the best the Republicans had to offer this year. Everybody else was rotten to the core. Trump is all their worst tendencies with a hint of pandering in economic issues.

All in all, it could have been worse.

(Serioudly, if you would rather have had Cruz or Rubio or Christie as president over Trump, you have no clue just how backwards they all were)

Well, buh bye Democrats.

@77 The Democrats and Hillary Clinton are doing just fine in making sure Hillary doesn't get elected all on their own. The Greens are just trying to pick up the votes from the ones who are so disgusted with their choices that they're going to otherwise stay home.
