yeah, when jumping off a cliff, choose the one that's only 100' high, that 200' one is so much worse.
HRC is more like taking a 10' cliff. It's doable. The alternate cliff is suicidal. The reality is, there is no way around the country going over one of these 2 cliffs. So make a choice; your life depends on it.
So are you saying Hilliary is better at hiding her true agenda than Trump is which, somehow, makes her more viable as a candidate?

Wonderful "live" broadcast by Bernie today.
He brings it all together toward the end of the 20min speech, that he'll keep doing his thing, but it's really all up to his supporters now.

We are in a helluva situation. If Bernie does not endorse Hillary, then the vote split could make Trump a shoe-in for the office. Then again, if Bernie does endorse Hilliary, we would end up with her in the office.

Damn no-win situation. I hate that.

So we end up with a split in the votes between Hillary and Bernie. Great. Makes it easy for Trump to win.

Our only hope would be if Hillary dropped out of the race. I do not see that happening.

Was at a medical convention last night with the WIfe. Heard a group of ladies talking, rather loudly (all doctors, by the way). They were from out of state and one of them raises a glass and states, "I don't care if the bitch is biting off the heads of kittens and sucking out their guts,....I am voting for her! We need a woman leading this country!".

Yeah, we are screwed.

How can we get worse than Hillary? It seems almost impossible, but here we are. They're equally evil in my view.

It was a disturbing scene, especially when the rest of them cheered. I think they would vote for the Condolizard or the Palin.

Actually, after thinking it over, we're both right. President Trump is going to make this country fucking fantastic, again.

Worse, better....

I think Hilliary is a much better liar than Trump making her the better politician, in this regard.
Their egos seem to be pretty equal.
Neither one of them seems to be able to relate to anyone outside their sphere of influence.
Hilliary excels at saying what she thinks people want to hear. Trump is just the opposite, but believes he is saying what people want to hear.

Better, or worse? Seems it is going to depend on the perspective of the person making the claim. I do not think either one of them will be good for the country.

Amazing that Steven Colberts "Truthiness" concept was, just 10 years ago, accepted by almost all media as the way things are in politics.

Currently, it doesn't serve politicians or the media to remind the public of its pervasiveness.

I'd say she will not be indicted. her machine is too strong, with deep roots and power.
If "you guys" don't pull the "black swan" soon, it won't matter anyway.

She's teflon, if ever a person was.
