    What is the difference between Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders?

    What is good about each candidate?  What is bad?  If you had to choose between them, who would you pick?  Who would make a better president, in your opinion?

    There is nothing good about Hillary Clinton. She has little to no accomplishments. She has been involved in too many questionable situations from Arkansas, to the WH as 1st Lady, NY Senator, and then Sec of State.

    You would be hard pressed to find any accomplishments in those places. I view accomplishments as working solutions to resolve issues and problems. In contrast to mere actions which are attempts that have failed.

    She will not work across the aisle, and that will only continue the division of the country, and its congressional gridlock. Hillary was shunned by the democratic party in 2008 over a virtual unknown, and now they have recycled her as the great white females solution for the democrats. It just doesn't seem logical to do that.

    Why would the country be better with her as president giving her greater power to do the same kind of acts that she did with a lesser power?

    Bernie Sanders doesn't have any of the dark secrets or suspicious actions as does Hillary Clinton. He has been an independent and changed to democrat for the purpose of getting elected to put his goals into action as the president. I don't think that his good intentions for the country will be realized by him as president.

    While he is certainly further down the path of help the US compared to Hillary, I don't think that his solutions are workable.

    Both Bernie Sanders & Hillary Clinton are Liberals, even Leftists.  However, Bernie Sanders is more open & honest in his leftist agenda than Hillary Clinton who supposedly maintains that she is more moderate, even centrist than Bernie Sanders.  However, many of Hillary Clinton's beliefs are Leftist but she is more covert in expressing them because she does not want to turn off many of her voters & political supporters.

    Dmitri Mehlhorn, medium.com. Who is more Trustworthy?--read it.
    If anyone saw a few days back, Chris Matthews said the media has given Sanders a huge pass, because they like this drama for ratings.
    Sanders is a fraud. He's like a pied piper leading people over the edge.
    He wants it so bad, but not for the country...for himself!
    He just loves the adoration so much.
    The way he brushes his wife off, and she takes it, is so reminiscent of couples I have known in my life!
    Bill is genuinely protective of Hillary. You can tell that, too.
    Sometimes age is a blessing. Sometimes you just know things that young people dont.
    An opportunist is an opportunist.
    I will just shake my head if he is the nominee. Thank God for delegates, who work for the party.
    I don't think they can be bamboozled so easily.
    You have to start vetting this guy in a serious way. Hillary, we know all about. Even the score.

    I mean, where are the tax returns, and why does no one mention it???

      I just hope it ends soon, before he is really ruined. There is such stuff out there, and he does not have the temperament to deal with it. He's used to pointing fingers, not having them point back at him. His wife is too nice
      Just end it quick.

      Well what if Bernie were to win the nomination, would you vote for him if he ran against Trump or any other Republican?

      Yes, in an instant. I have 3 daughters. Republicans don't believe in their freedom. Not to mention voting rights, being kind to felow human beings...I'd have to be forced with gun to my head to vote R. And i wouldn't put that past them either!

    The only difference I see between sHrilliary and Bernie is Shrilliary lies to your face (and shrills like a distraught nag instead of speaking intelligently), while Bernie's lies are hidden in his policies.

    Either one delivers nothing but lies.

    Are socialists honest? Can a socialist actually be honest? Really? If anyone thinks a socialist can be honest they should watch the interview at the bottom of this answer and then they might want to rethink the thought that Bernie is honest! Socialism is a dishonest system.

    About the interview below, for millennials who don't know, Milton Friedman was an American economist who received the 1976 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for his research on consumption analysis, monetary history and theory and the complexity of stabilization policy. He was a trusted adviser to Ronald Reagan and known for quotes like this:

    "Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself."

    "If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there'd be a shortage of sand."

    "Governments never learn. Only people learn."

    And bleeding heart liberal Phil Donahue? Well, in this interview, I'd say he was not shown to be very smart.

    If Hillary is anything like her husband was in the White House, she will leave us with peace and prosperity by the end of eight years.

    The main difference with her and Sanders is that her goals are achievable and she is electable.

      Well said Kathleen ~ But I do think Senator Sander's Goals & Ideas are  Much MORE Feasible & Achievable  than many think ~ After all, we presumably LANDED a Manned Space Vehicle on the Lunar Surface with less "Computer POWER" than a 70's Vid

      Well comparing Bernie Sanders to a Manned Space Vehicle Computer POWER of a 70's "Vid" is a pretty accurate description of how out of date the man and his policies are! Well done AP.

    Sanders has always been honest about being a socialist, while Hillary's attempt to openly push socialized medicine was rebelled against in the 1990s, so she's been a stealth socialist and often open big government-big business coalition type since.
    I would choose neither of them, since both are bad for the economy, but at least Clinton understand the new wave of Jihad roiling the Middle East and beyond better than Sanders.
    However, the Arab Spring and rise of groups like ISIS and Al Shabab are her fault for taking out dictators to support the popular uprisings, not realizing the dictators were so bad controlling Islamic fundamentalists.
    If she learned that lesson, she's better than Sanders. If she hasn't learned that sometimes secular dictators are better than Taliban-wannabees, she's just as bad and they're both horrible.
    Martin O'Malley would have been a much better choice than both, a moderate Democrat and military vet to boot, but he's been out of the race for months.
