Great answer. I agree with you statement. Thanks for answering. If you would, follow me on hub pages
I agree. I want Bernie Sanders to get it as well. If you would, follow me on hub pages. Thanks for answering
The only time there is not serious "gridlock" in Washington is when both the executive branch and congress are of the same party. Sanders or any Democrat with a Republican congress will have similar obstacles to Obama. Compromise is passé today.
Have you forgotten what it was like in 2008/2009? Unemployment at 10%, foreclosures at record highs, the stock market was in the toilet, 4000+ soldiers lost their lives in a war based on a lie regarding WMDs costing trillions of dollars? VS 2015
I believe the platform issues will decide this election such as being in favor or against raising the minimum wage, marriage equality, overhauling social security & Medicare. Most people in a shaky economy will vote according to their pocketbook.

Watergate, Iran-Contra? Wow, those terms are so old that they've gathered a very thick coat of dust. And Bush II? Well, PEW just reported that his poll figures are higher than Obama's.
Need to fix this up https://hubpages.com/politics/Gun-laws-in-Australi...
I doubt that. Never going to happen anyway, perpetual war is how many of these politicians make money on both sides. You want your troops home protest and fight for that in your countries.
Won't happen, everybody find ISIS to be too much of a threat, to withdraw troops. They want their troops home, but want to destroy ISIS more
However I believe most Americans are still focused on the economy and domestic issues. The last thing many folks want to do is spend trillions of more dollars on an all out war risking more U.S. soldiers lives in a civil war.
I don't think Clinton has a chance, but I 100% agree about her. Not leader material at all. She's an A+ liar, though...and criminal. That first sentence alone earns you a gold star.
R.K., I certainly do hope you're right. I am too old to have to deal with another Democrat being president.
feenix, I believe a lot of folks subconsciously believe Bill Clinton will be the "Wizard" behind the curtain of a Hilary presidency. He's still very popular and many people experienced a good standard of living. However that's almost 20 years ago!
Strong commander-in-chief? The election is really about paychecks.
Hey, dashingscorpio, remember the "Bush recession?" Well, that was really the "Bill Clinton recession." It was the hangover from the "good standard of living" that WJC borrowed the US into and obtained through handing out sub-prime mortgages.
feenix, I guess timing is everything!:)
Between the long recount of the 2000 Bush election, the $300 tax refund checks issued to all citizens, events of 9/11, the Iraq War, & handling of the Katrina storm, by 2007 everyone forgot Clinton antics!
dasingscorpio, you just knocked it out of the park; you hit the nail squarely on the head, you ain't never lied, etc.
There is a reason Hillionaire has remained out of public view for over a month, she is not ready for prime time. Obama came out of no where to level her campaign. Why, because she is an abrasive hag. She looks best in a polished shield.
