    What are the strengths of Clinton and Trump?

    Well, to hear them talk, they both say their greatest strength is that they aren't the other one.  I frankly don't see many strengths in either one.  One is a loudmouth jackwagon and the other is a chronic liar and panderer.  Both are strong at instilling fear in people - I guess that manipulation and talking around issues are strengths if you're a politician.  Clinton is intelligent, Trump is not an idiot either - he's just an unrestrained loudmouth.

    Not much in those two to vote for, and I choose not to vote "against" so I am voting for a 3rd party.  I can't find anything in either of these two to like enough to vote for it.

      If that is what you are going to do, then please don't vote. Both acts are the same. People pick based on personality, but they should pick based on the goals and platforms. That is why we were stuck with 8 years of Clinton and Obama. Bush??

      Who are you to tell anyone not to vote?  How arrogant. I'll vote FOR Jill Stein because I like her platform idea of a Green New Deal thank you very much.  I am voting FOR her platform.  I have no use for Trumps or Clintons.

      You really think a vote for Jill Stein is going to do anything? other than waste a vote that could help keep a crime family from stealing America.You are still all about yourself aren't you...do what you want, not what America needs.

      America doesn't NEED either of them.  If you think I've spent years as an activist because I'm all about myself you're delusional.  We ALL have the ability to use our own vote as we see fit.

    Hello yecall.  I'm trying to figure out how you've been a member here for 6 long years, have a wonderful list of hubs, yet I'm just meeting you today!  Nice to meet you.
    This question might just be my very last comment on anything that even remotely resembles something "political!" 
    Just can't find the strength nor desire to even think about any more of this outrageous circus, starring the clown & the criminal, much less do I feel like discussing it any further.  This campaign has been a waste of our time and attention, the candidates are BOTH a waste of our effort to vote~~neither are good for our country~~they are not basically good people..Period!
    Strengths?  Let's see....Old Hil-liar-y has the uncanny strength to lie every day all day for years and years and somehow magically get functioning human beings to believe her.  AMAZING!
    Trump never tires of blowing his own horn, kissing his own ass, and behaving like an adolescent when he feels slighted.  That all requires stamina and strength.  That's it as far as visible strengths.
    I love Christin's comment & absolutely agree with her......Noticing a trend, are we ??
    As for the peanut gallery and their Blah Blah Blah with the arrogance to think they have a right to preach or believe THEY are thinking of their country?   Yeah, right...OK Sherlock.  We shall certainly find out exactly what the finale will be.  I doubt anyone has contributed to a successful outcome anymore than the next one.   Just HOW the hell do  we make a silk purse out of pig's ass?   Thanks for the question, yecall.
