What impresses you or turns you off about Hillary Clinton?
I've heard from many Democrats about how great Hillary Clinton is, so I've attempted to look at her record while serving in public office and her life in other areas, and for the life of me all I've been able to find are negatives. Is it just because she is a woman?
You maybe on to something, perhaps she is just negative. I have noted to many poor choices and actions throughout her career to ever support her. I find her speeches to be painful to listen to at this point, so many questionable actions that I do not find it worth my time to listen further to any more of her dribbling audacious statements.
Sanders has joined the Republican team in bashing hillary. He should get accolades from McConnell and friends. It says much more about him than it ever could about her. He wants the presidency so bad, he can taste it. And will do anything to get it.
What turned me off of Hillary were her answers during the Benghazi hearing. "What difference does it make". There are too many skeletons in the Clinton closet, and whenever that door is opened, I am amazed that they can close it so fast, and no one questions what they saw in the closet.
I'm not a Democrat but I find her to be a hypocrite. She takes money from Wall Street donors and attacks the 1%. She claim to defend women and yet supports Planned Parenthood even when they do wrong. She claim to support minorities and yet her policies have devastated the country and hurt the people at the bottom of the economic ladder. She has the air of entitlement where laws are made for everybody else and her private server is unlawful and put all our security at risk. How is she the front runner in this election? I just don't get it.
What impresses me? Absolutely nothing about the Clinton's impresses me. Hillary and Bill should both be in jail for their many scandals they got away with.
What turns me off? I don't believe we are allowed a 10 page report in this comments section. She has repeatedly been caught lying but nobody seems to care. She changes her position regularly depending on which way the political winds are blowing. Knowing that she can not be trusted or believed, why would we even consider having her as our President?
Many believe that by electing her they would have their beloved Bill back in office. They could care less about Hillary but still love Bill.
According to Hillary they were so broke when they left the White House they had to steal china, silverware, and furniture to furnish her mansion in NY. I would hope that if she were to be elected we would learn from this and lock all the cupboards and nail the furniture to the floor.
I resent the fact that I am expected to vote for her solely on her gender. This implies that men are ineligible to support a female candidate. I think she is a candidate for four reasons; She is female, she is wife of Bill, she has connections (Sadly, I think that determines our fate more than the vote), and she is very, very wealthy. I wonder how many Americans are just completely aghast at our options this time around?
Thanks for the very strong comments. The Super Delegate story validates your "connections" point. Even if she does just OK in the state by state elections, she'll win the nomination by Super Delegates pushing her over the top.
I cannot vote for her or Trump. Her, because while I expect that any Presidential candidate is going to lie at some point but I want it to be uncomfortable and surprising. I would not like to put anyone who is already fluent in deceit and bad decision making in the office. A woman in office should not be an issue, if we are truly as far along in equality as we should be, color and race would not even be a speaking point. A woman in office should be a normal thought but perhaps not his woman. As far as Trump is concerned, he does not represent anything that should be in the Oval office. If he has skill to make the changes people are looking for than have him consult, but his demeanor is not that of a leader or a diplomat.
Her biggest turnoff is her utter lack of genuineness. It's so apparent. She just expects to be President and her party have greased the wheels for her. Nothing the Clintons do is genuine. Very sad that a couple like that achieve the highest office in the land. Then there's Trump. Tough year.
She got herself elected senator. She was successful lawyer, gave up career to support hubby's. Was sec of state and met with leaders all over the world. Don't like her, but don't downgrade her accomplishments.
She quit NY in her 2nd term to get rejected by the democrat as pres candidate. She has some skeletons in her closet, Whitewater, Vince Foster, Benghazi, Emails. Getting elected in NY is not real hard 4 a dem. Not really accomplishments cn make VP
All her skeletons have been investigated over and over and over. Far more time on Billary than 9/11. (Who runs things!) I don't care about right wing generated "scandals" when the idiots missed 9/11, and the theft of presidency in 2000. Partisan crap
Most all of her scandals you blame on the vast right wing are proven to be true, but in the Clinton way she never had to pay the price for her crimes. You need to do a little reading before you declare something as fact.
What crime? Why don't you tell me. All I see are political operatives trying to smut and strut. Hearing after hearing on Hillary, 8 years going after Bill. And who pays for it? We the tax payer. Taxed Enough Already. How u like that?
Oh OK..so saying Hillary's not genuine is a fact?Saying Obama hates America is a fact? After 8 hearings BY republicans they found no guilt. That's a fact.So the emotional-laden commentary is saying Hillary committed crimes.But you never confront them
Just read up on her role in Whitewater. She and hubby Bill made a fortune on this one. She may still be in deep trouble over the email server deal, but that remains to be seen. Nobody in this administration will be willing to prosecute her.
Hillary committed crime of miss handling of secret emails. She will be charged in due time. If not, our justice system will be undermined. The next official, republican or democrat, who engaged in the same will have a pass. That cannot stand.
Beats me how you can charge Hillary, but not Rice and Powell. Is she supposed to be different somehow? And Benghazi accusation is worse. It's all Gladio. And people are believing media.Who after all, is telling you these things? It's all Murdoch made
No one need to tell me. I have a brain and I evaluate evidence. No other Secretary of State have set up their own email server. What part of secured communication don't you get? Your blind allegiance to Hillary is commendable.
Leslie, this is a waste of time because you refuse to believe this woman you worship could do wrong. Others have been punished for less serious offenses than what she did with her private server. She put many lives at risk with this illegal move.
Both Secs Powell and Rice used private e mail to send docs.I guess your blind allegiance to those YOU worship made it ok. At least Obama FBI investigating. No one did squat about Rice and Powell.What a surprise, NOT.Partisan justice, partisan America
Don't patronize me. You run when your words are turned back on you. I don't worship anyone, nor am I blind. I see unfairness and meaness and I speak up about it. If it's so wrong, it was wrong when others did it too.
Mika brezinski said a smart thing about that. Is it a real scandal, or media driven? Oh, it's media driven. Otherwise, we'd be investigating the whole federal gvt. And retroactively investigating Rice and powell. I mean, if it's such a crime, and all
I am impressed by her determination to become President, this has been her plan since before Bill got out of office. She became a NY Senator, she became Secretary of State, all for the purposes of becoming President.
That's determination, to pursue a goal for more then twenty years, and overcome obstacles and mistakes, you have to give it to her... she has doggedly pursued being POTUS probably more than even Nixon did.
What I don't like, is that she is one big cog that is part of the problem... all the things that started going wrong 20... 25 years ago... NAFTA, CAFTA, the Community ReInvestment Act of 94, all the way to Obamacare.... the really big issues that have come along that are crushing the American economy and have jobs moving to other countries without stop... she's been part of it all to one degree or another... she IS the establishment.
The last thing I want is someone who is a Cornerstone of all that has gone on in Washington that I know has been bad for the country, for the past quarter century becoming President.
And that is regardless of whether its true that she allowed thousands of Top Secret information emails be exposed to the public, and regardless of whether she knew about Benghazi, and regardless of whether she is on China's payroll... all that aside, I just don't want more of the same BS in Washington, and that is exactly what electing Clinton will get us.
In 1992, 55.5% of Americans voted. Bill Clinton won 43% of that 55.5%, which is 23.7% of total eligible voters. The others voted for Ross Perot or George Bush. That 23.7% makes Bill Clinton the least-popularly-elected president in US history.
In 1996, only 49% of Americans voted. President Clinton won 49.2% of that number, which is 24.1%. That made him also the SECOND least-popularly-elected president in US history.
Bill Clinton was president with less than one-quarter of the population behind him.
You got that right Ralph and that is no secret to people who know them well. Former Miss Arkansas says: Hihttp://video.dailymail.co.uk/video/mol/2016/02/01/5110557004472731469/1024x576_5110557004472731469.mp4
My gramma had a saying too. You know what they say about opinions. And take it from me, when I say Bush and Bibi did 9/11, you people do NOT take it well. Expect the same treatment about your opinions.Or, are you somehow better? I sure don't think so
Leslie - your total closed minded approach on things makes it hard to have an open discussion on any topic. No one in this thread is talking about Bush, Bibi, 9/11, or any of the other diversionary topics you keep bringing up to divert
No, they are saying the Clintons have people killed. Straight-facrd, no one calls them insane. But when I say Bush/Cheney/Bibi killed 3,000 they call me tin foil hat. See? If you want respect for your opinions, give respect for mine. Ooops, too late!
Absolutely not a single~even remotely TINY thing~ about that creature could impress me ....never has, never will.
What turns me off about Miss grating voice, poor people skills, impersonal demeanor, LIAR, phony, thief, greedy, non-genuine, basically boring, morally bankrupt, Hillary Clinton?.........Oh nothing really...can't think of a thing off the top of my head. OH, maybe because the last time I had the extreme displeasure of listening to her spew her bull$hit, the top of my head Blew off!
Now Ralph, I think you're suppose to ask me if I'm voting for her......Paula
Well, I tried. You asked for Hillary supporters,and I being the only one, had my answer voted out.Won't bother again.You people don't want debate, you want Cling-ons. IMO.And don't bother w the "it's because you're so awful" Look around. uoffensive2
You're probably right, her appeal is most likely that she is a woman. However, it is also that she supports the social services that continue to allow people to sit around and do nothing but collect free food, money, and healthcare. People are lazy and want to be taken care. Republican candidates won't support that. To answer your question, I am against any person who would allow Benghazi whether it is her fault or Obama's fault. I cannot support anyone who is a crook and a liar.
Oh for...just last week she was criticized for supporting her hubbies welfare reform bill. NOW she's a welfare supporter. Btw, most welfare are red states.Look it up.Plenty Repubs support that. And, R House worked something like 190 days for $176,000
Unlike Britain, Germany and a few other nations, America is still immature and uncertain about having a female president on the throne. On the other hand, the electorate's inner mind is a replica of everything Trump lauded, but none of them dared echo such inner thoughts loudly in public the way the courageous Trump did. They would rather cower quietly in fear but display it secretly in the ballot while leaving you guessing. It is now very clear that The United States of America is Donald Trump impersonated in thought, in speech and in character. After all, a leader is a sample of his subjects. The vote proved this beyond reasonable doubt.
