Come on, man. I voted for Bernie in the primaries too, but you didn't see me crying about it like I just lost my binky. I got behind Hillary because obviously, she was the only qualified candidate. I only started crying after the Republicans had engineered the election right out from under her. And yes, by "engineered", I mean "stolen".
And ...[text shortened]... and grow up and deal with the reality of becoming a minority in this country. Karma's a bitch.
Much of 'Hillary-bashing' in this male-dominated forum seems motivated by misogyny.
Hillary Clinton's campaign was a narrow failure, not the abject disaster claimed by her haters.
I note with disdain the extreme arrogance of cocksure writers who seem certain that Bernie Sanders
would have defeated Donald Trump. There may have been some polls several months
before the November election suggesting it, but the polls also indicated Hillary Clinton would win.
In reality, we cannot know what would have happened if Bernie Sanders had become
the Democratic nominee for President and then been ruthlessly attacked for months by
Donald Trump and the Republican Party propaganda machine. Although Bernie Sanders
may have drawn some 'progressives' who were unwilling to vote for Hillary Clinton, he
presumably would have lost the support of some more conservative Democrats.
How ready would the USA have been to elect a secular Jewish socialist as its President in 2016?
Looking at the Senate, there's only one secular Jewish socialist member out of 100 there.
