    For all of y'all saying, she was up by xxxxxx numbers WEEKS ago, it does NOT matter! A win is a WIN! It only gets tougher for Bernie, now African Americans (South Carolina) will get to vote next week! Bernie destroyed her in NH, and she will get revenge in South Carolina!

    Hillary for President!

    WOOOOHOOOOO! I am so excited!

    Could careless for all politicians are corrupt and in my opinion Hillary is number 1 in that category. One good point is that we probably won't have to worry about a communist becoming President err I mean socialist.

    All caps headline doesn't make Hillary any less of a criminal with excess baggage to the extreme.

    It's all a farce anyway. This was reported yesterday:

    "After the contests in Iowa and New Hampshire, Sanders has a small 36-32 lead among delegates won in primaries and caucuses. But when superdelegates are included, Clinton leads 481-55, according to the AP count. It's essentially a parallel election that underscores Clinton's lopsided support from the Democratic establishment."

    Sanders cannot win by popular vote. It's already over.

    While I am glad your Candidate is doing well nfl46, I don't see the need to gloat. Sanders is a fine candidate. We'll see how it shakes out, but they're both Democrats. A little class would be nice moving forward...

    That 481 figure represents all the superdelegates (in any or all states) who have so far stated a preference. The total number of superdelegates (who are all permitted to shift allegiance as they please right up to the time of the nominating convention), is only around 20% of the total number of delegates. The other 80% are elected state by state and those delegates are pledged to the candidate who was voted for until and unless the candidate releases them. Please try to learn more about this before calling it "a farce".

    Why're you so pumped over Hillary? Not being facetious, genuinely curious.

    Funny, pretty sure just about every general election poll has her mopping the floor with every GOP clown.

    You clearly were not on this forum a couple of weeks ago...because Bernie supporters were definitely coming at me since I was one of the few Hillary supporters on here.

    Hey, I am just excited she won. You don't see me calling Bernie out his name like some of these Bernie supporters do to Hillary.
    --- Post Merged, Feb 20, 2016 ---
    Mainly because I like Hillary! I am all for breaking down barriers...and having our first woman President would be GREAT!

    I hope I am not getting ahead of myself, but I think it will be:

    President: Hillary Clinton
    Vice President: Julian Castro

    People take exception to the nature of your posts. It makes us think you don't really know the issues well, you've just chosen your horse and now you want to see her race and win. That's the crux of the problem with American politics. It's a game show, a popularity contest for most folks, and that really infuriates me. All anyone can do is repeat the same talking points ad nauseum: Clinton is more pragmatic. Clinton has more foreign policy experience. ...Clinton is a shill for the status quo, is what you're really saying. American foreign policy has been an abject failure since WWII and arguably since the inception of the country, so anyone who's worked in that field in a professional capacity automatically gets a fail. The fact she worked as Secretary counts against, not for. This not even taking into account her tenure was widely regarded as mediocre at best an a failure at worst.

    The republicans are unilaterally disgusting in every way and that's something I won't debate. But on the issues that really matter--not social BS but the issues that will define the course of the American life over the next century--Clinton is closer to the GOP than not. I challenge anyone to refute that statement with facts vs. canned sound bites from the desk of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

    For any glossy-eyed Clinton supporter, go out and read Paul Mason's Postcapitalism: A Guide to Our Future. If you still support Clinton after than then we can have a meaningful discussion.

    Let's not make this about me, though.

    This is about Hillary. Let's stay on topic.

    But, it's fine. I won't be responding in this section until the next primary.

    See you guys next weekend for South Carolina!

    Hillary for President! :)

    The first two sentences were about you, juxtaposed to the American electorate. The bulk was not. Maybe read it and take it into account when you're on a latte break from Clinto HQ.

    You know, I've always wondered where they find all those people who show up at political conventions and seem to be genuinely excited by their candidates. This understand I never will.

    I hope you get to go to the convention. It sounds like you would really enjoy it. While you are there, please remember that politicians are people, too, like the rest of us. I always view every candidate for every office as a compromise-- that is, after all, what representative democracy is all about.

    Yeah, I've wondering about that idea floating around. I would greatly prefer a VP who is sitting on a Senate committee that has international visibility, like the Senate Foreign Relations committee. Since 9/11, the world has been moving in an ever more dangerous and precarious situation, and, I would like a VP who has a clue about what is going on internationally. Someone like Ben Cardin or Tom Udall.

    People on here are all Bernie fans but they're all in hiding today.

    Hillary will beat Bernie and that's because nobody is voting for him.

    Americans don't do socialism, period.

    There are 4,763 delegates, and a candidate must secure 2,382 delegates to win the nomination. source
    And the superdelegates can change their votes

    Why such binary thinking? I think most people are a tad more subtle in their reasoning...Americans btw way have a long history of doing socialism. If I didn't have to work i'd go more in depth, but Medicare, free public school k-12, and the New Deal spring to mind.

    I think Hillary would make a much better president than Bernie. She has a much broader range of experience whereas Bernie's main focus and strength is on economic injustice. What frustrates me about Bernie is that even though I share his outrage and agree with his analysis of the issues, he is promising a bunch of pipe dream solutions. However, given all of the widespread Hillary hatred, which I believe is completely unjustified being fed mostly by people with an agenda spreading lies about her, I'm starting to think that the Democrats should bet on Bernie instead. The way I see it, many of Bernie's supporters will never vote for Hillary but the majority if not all of Hillary's supporters would back Bernie should he win the nomination. Our focus should be on making sure that none of the nut jobs on the right make it into the White House. Even though Bernie is making unrealistic promises, I'd rather see him win the presidency by inspiring people to come out and vote who wouldn't normally than have a large number of voters sit this election out because of Hillary.

    See how that pans out after she is indicted, even if she isn't the GOP is going to shove her face in the pile of **** she has built up prior to her presidential campaign, Bernie is a walk in the park compared to what she will face in the general election, she's just lucky the GOP doesn't coronate their candidates and are focused on each other right now.
