Well, the Bush family are a bunch of warmongering, corrupt, and ignorant fools.
The Clintons are calculating, war-wary, oligarchs who are highly intelligent.
It's like comparing a very stupid version of Stalin with a very clever version of Putin.
Both such, but I'd rather have the one that didn't commit genocide.
If I had my druthers, Clinton wouldn't get the nod, but I'll vote for her before anyone the GOP can wrangle up at this stage.
The GOP needs to lose in 2016. If they do, they will actually be forced to reorganize and stop being so radical.
A democratic victory is essential in 2016 for both true conservative Republicans AND Democrats.
4 years of Hillary would show the nation that Democrats operate the same economic principals as the GOP, but they lack the overt xenophobia.
The GOP would then reevaluate their policies and in 2020, they would offer a true populist position, and they would win, and rightfully so.
But only if they are willing to hang the establishment and get new blood.
Democracy can't truly work unless if everybody votes. If you don't vote you don't have the right to complain later.
I am not too familiar with Gillibrand, but I know she is often considered a progressive in the Senate. She was more of a centrist when she was in the House, but suddenly became more left-wing after entering the Senate.
