    What do you admire the most about Hillary Clinton?

    I just read Hillary Clinton's commencement speech at Wellesley University today - and clearly remembered why I voted for her despite her imperfections (and had been intending to long before Don came along): she gets it.

    Politics is seldom about policies for me. I like people who are experienced & smart enough to see the big picture and make adjustments, as needed. If they can also come back from a remarkably-disappointing loss to make such an insightful & inspiring speech - that makes them a great leader; and Hillary is one WITHOUT becoming potus.

    What is your favorite thing about Hillary?

    I've always admired Mrs. Clinton's abilities to extort, lie, steal, and coerce so many different people without ever being incarcerated.  It takes skill to push the blame for every wrongdoing in your life onto someone else's plate while you sit back enjoying the millions you've extorted from foreign governments for political favors.  I mean who else could possibly build a home brew e-mail server, outside of official channels, and then delete 30,000 e-mails while under subpoena and still remain a free citizen; not even charged.

      The fact that U admire Hillary for those things shows why U admire those things in The Donald, so much - especially since his sins & scandals R so much more & greater. Plus, his ability to tweet childish rants is unparalleled! Admire on...

      My oh my - you don't seem to grasp that my answer was pure sarcasm.  I don't admire anything about her or her family.

      I would say U R the one who can't grasp sarcasm. I was hoping to get opinions of peeps who actually appreciate Hillary. Too bad haters feel so threatened along with an obvious need to express it - more & again, cuz we haven't heard it enough.

      In America, we have FREE SPEECH - like it or not.  If you want an all-Liberal site, then create one.  It sounds like some people on this thread want a cheerleader page where everyone agrees with things.....good luck with that

    I most admire her intelligence and stamina. She has passed through 30 years of fire, false accusations, downright mean allegations and still remains one of the brightest and most admired woman on the planet.
    He strength inspires me to keep up hope for the future.

      30 years of damn hard work against the stream in a white mans club - flung in your face largely bcuz of misogyny, ignorance, manipulation & misinformation. Any other white male politician with her record would be potus right now. Sickening.

      The only reason she got as far as she did is because she IS a woman. NOT because of her capabilities.

      It is true that if Hillary had balls, she would be the President, like her husband before her. But vaginas seem to make ugly men want ro stick it to them, definitely not in a good way.

    My favorite thing about Hilary and her husband is how well they've maneuvered themselves into the elite and into the hearts of the American public. Only true snakes can do both with as much success as the Clintons.

    “Too bad haters feel so threatened along with an obvious need to express it”  MC, are you telling me you pose a question about one of the most controversial political figures in American history and DO NOT expect some negative feedback?  Should I post the question “What do you admire most about Donald Trump, his ability to defeat liberals, his business success, his ability to stand-up to a blatant biased media or something else?"  I would EXPECT you liberals to be very negative about such a questions.  That's because I deal with reality.  Have you really gotten any responses you didn't expect?

      Why are you so angry? What did Hillary ever do to you? MFC didn't post a question like that. Why don't you post the one YOU think should be asked. I did post your question once and got no response at all. No one likes Donnie, get it?

      "It is true that if Hillary had balls, she would be the President, like her husband before her. But vaginas seem to make ugly men want ro stick it to them, definitely not in a good way." And conservatives are angry?You lose trying to help them think.

      What have I lost? I make a statement. You can agree or disagree. You can choose to not read my comments at all. I have lost nothing. But maybe I made you think about something. Life goes on.

      Jeez, John - if the comment wasn't true, things would be different. Those of us who watched Hillary be demonized for decades by ugly white men & women know damn well why; but you're right - no point in trying to help them think.

      For every 3 or 4 brainwashed guys there is at least 1 brainwashed chick. My point is none of the raging right-hype on Hillary is new - except they got to add emails & benghazi to their TAME list of scandals when compared to Trump or her peers.

      MC, Carly Fiorina, Michele Bachmann, Phyllis Schlafly,Condoleezza Rice and other conservative women would have wiped the floor with Hillary in any type of a debate. Trump soundly beat Hillary. Maybe YOU are the one who is brainwashed.

      Misfit Chickposted 16 months agoin reply to this

      Depends, debates with Carly & Condoleeza might have been good - the other 2 are clearly brainwashed in religion. Not every conservative is brainwashed which is why so many DIDN'T vote for Trump. #NeverTrump REMEMBER? Not even CLOSE by Tman - LoL!

    She is a survivor. No matter what comes her way, she gets back up. In a time when she could have retired and play with her grandkids, she choose to run for office. I disagree which her progressive policies but I can still admire her tenacity.

      Thanks, Jack. I know you're not a fan of hers. I've managed to come to appreciate Trump's personality in the same way. He may be full of hubris & inexperience, but he dang sure tries hard and seems to WANT to do right for America as we all do.

    I just love the fact that she has been right there in on all of it as they assaulted us with the patriot act, she is there as trillions disappear from our government and no one knows anything and how she used to be a Republican die hard and now she thinks she's Democrat. I also think it's great how she refers to "us and them" when talking about government as a whole, and the American people. Real nice.

      You are so misinformed and apparently cannot separate facts from fiction. The clue is that you speak in generalities, not specifics. And you think you know what she is thinking. You don't, you just repeat hearsay.

      Again, thanks so much for popping in and sharing your hate - cuz those of us who appreciate this woman haven't heard your OLD, ignorant, brainwashed perspective quite enough, yet.
