Post title reflects article headline, as you will see:


http://bluenationreview.com/top-reasons-vote-hillary/

I'll get the popcorn, the article is compelling but those who disagree will hopefully convince fence-sitters with a little more detail, and if the detail includes Benghazi or personal email server, please go into detail justifying the double standard and free pardon Reagan and Bush got for their equivalents to Benghazi (e.g. Lebanon) and Bush Jr's personal email server with 22 million deleted emails and conservatives didn't seem to get wound up over that (but clearly think Clinton, with a much smaller situation, is the devil incarnate or something, SMH)...
[doublepost=1462061970][/doublepost]Addendum - 112 more reasons, though some might overlap:

(I imagine a number of those questions will be brought up in the debates, where I would hope her competition - Trump - will be as resolute with a plan to be able to successfully fight for. )

Some of those are kind of silly. The qualifications portion lists achievements from 30+ years ago and include being first lady as a qualification. The rest aren't any better. They're nice biographical material, but they're neutral in this context.

Wait these are legit reasons? Is this a joke? This literally looks like the content off a click-bait site. My opinions of Hillary aside, I'm not sure but I don't find this a very compelling article.

She was elected Senior Class President of Wellesley College :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
I'm sure Wellesley College Class President is much like running a country. Perhaps should have commented on her decades of experience in politics and government.​

Graduated with honors from Yale Law School before completing another year of graduate studies.:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
Cool, theres a lot of other educated people in the world. Theres est 1.22 lawyers too in the US. I have a doctorate, does that make me a better leader?
Took a “summer job” on Senator Walter Mondale’s committee for migrant workers in 1971 :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
I actually interned at a pharmacy in CT in College that served many migrant workers from the local tobacco fields. They didn't have insurance, so we sold them the drugs at wholesale cost- unlike CVS who'd charge $60 for $3 worth of medication.
Worked on Presidential campaigns of Barry Goldwater (1964), George McGovern (1972), and Jimmy Carter (1976) :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
Barry Goldwater 1964? Hillary was 17 years old and in High School. Give me a break. I certainly can't imagine her playing chief strategist. Barry Goldwater was a Republican too. McGovern was 1972, she would have been 25 here too. I'm pretty sure most campaigns will utilize your labor if you're willing.​

Designed to put a focus on maternal an infant health, the GHI has implemented strategy to improve medical facilities, reduce the spread of HIV, and lower infant and maternal mortality rates. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
You mean the Obama Admin GHI? Obama's name is on that and I'm not sure Hillary should want her name on it. The GHI was heinously underfunded from the original proposal and last I checked turned put to be a big flop.​

First Gentleman Bill Clinton :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
Cool...? Sorry if we're voting for President based on the charm of the spouse, I'd be stuck voting for Trump. I would be very conflicted with that decision.​

It’s About Damn Time :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
Is it? That's not an argument. (Ok, I cherry picked- the real comment was because she's a woman and the US deserves a woman president. I'm all for women's rights and equality and advancement, but I will vote for the person most inline with my philosophical and political outlook-- not based on his/her gender. To vote for a woman just because she is a woman is just as intolerant as a man voting for a man because he not a woman.)
Sorry, this is probably among my most worthless and obnoxious posts of all time. But really, I don't like Hillary and I can objectively think of 5 persuasive comments about her that actually mean something. :eek::eek::eek:

I self proclaim the record for most rolleyes in a post.

Hey, if the Republicans can attack her on this point, than the Democrats can certainly use it too.

I don't see much difference in voting for Hillary because she is a woman and voting for Trump because he will keep out the scary brown people. Both stances are bigoted, and shouldn't be used to justify voting for a candidate.

Was it not as a senate staffer that she was fired for a lack of ethics?

Her cattle futures $100,000 was a money-raising scam deal from the git-go.

Her attitude toward the Secret Service and toward the military reveal much about her insofar as any patriotism.

The Clintons basically stole furniture from the White House when he left office. He? Loved the furniture?

She did all that poor-mouthing about being broke, ignoring her $8 million advance on her memoirs. IOW, a liar.

She bad-mouths Wall Street as a campaigner, not mentioning the millions she's been paid by Wall Street to give speeches. Hypocrisy.

And from what I've read from those who have had to deal with her as other-than-sycophants, she has all the personality of an irate wolverine.

But to me, the worst is her membership in the NeoCons, as just another (bleeping) war monger. Remember, she was all for going into Iraq because of WMDs, until it became politically expedient to bad-mouth Bush II. Now, she's part of the cabal that wants to start a war with Russia.

Sanders, Trump, and Kasich are superior choices. In fact, Hillary and Cruz are equally and uniquely loathsome.
Sure. Trump is a superior choice if you want to hire a guy that knows nothing about the office he is running for. When a person's wife and daughter have to tell you to be "more presidential" that's a sign that perhaps you aren't cut out for the job and shouldn't be running for it. As for Kasich, how can he be a superior choice when hardly anyone wants to vote for him? Winning only one state isn't too good.

MadeTheSwitch, if you don't think Hillary would play the machismo game with Putin, why else would she be on board with the "get tough" rhetoric crowd? Are you aware of the NeoCon love affair with the Wolfowitz Doctrine? Has she not supported this warlike maneuvering being done by the NATOphiles? Remember, Bush I and Gorbachev agreed that if Gorby didn't object to the reunification of Germany, we would not expand NATO eastward.

We lied.

Irony: We went bat-guano nutzoidal here in the US in 1962 over Soviet missiles in Cuba. But now we call Russia "aggressive" for her resentment at our placement of NATO troops, materiel and missiles immediately adjacent to her border. Ignorance of history, for Hillary and Obama et al? Arrogance? Hypocrisy?

Was not Hillary supportive of Nuland's efforts to suborn the duly elected government of Ukraine? Spending some of that $5 billion of our tax dollars? What part of Ukraine fronts the Atlantic?

The abject failure in Libya in the removal of Khaddafi was on her watch, with her support: "We came, we saw, he died." Yup. And Khaddafi's armaments have gone to ISIS, Al Qaeda and Boko Haram. Great success story, demonstrative of her acumen in foreign policy. Grade F.

They are there because of the history of Russian aggression in Eastern Europe. Aggression which continues to this day. I shouldn't have to explain the difference between that situation and Cuba to you.

She's corrupt as hell, stores classified material on insecure home server infrastructure, flip flops on basically every issue (check her history on LGBT issues), in bed with Wall Street, the list goes on.

That said, given the above she's probably the ideal US president if recent history is any judge.

So why are US warships off the Russian coastline? Why has the US been overflying Russia since the cold war?

The US is just as aggressive if not more so than Russia - you don't see Russia stationing aircraft carriers off the coast of North America in international waters now, do you?
