    After watching Hillary, I was upbeat, but cautious. She appears to speak at what I enjoy to hear, but leaves out that hidden message that seems mystic. That mystic message is there, I know it is, which always makes me uncomfortable with the best of politicians. So, I make a list to find out what does Hillary stand for in America as President.

    1. She appears clear on health care, which "ALL" Americans should have affordable health care. OK, that's a start. The Affordable Care Act is merging into something expensive and questions on affordability is growing. America rates dismal in health care as compared around the world where many countries are decades ahead of us in quality. Where does Hillary takes us into improving the ACA?

    2. I realize Hillary is rich with many donors supporting her campaign. That makes me nervous, especially with Wall Street, where so much corruption keeps the middle class from escaping getting poorer. I have always been cautious around rich people, especially when they speak their politics as if the poor deserves what there hard work gets them............which is nothing. Those that try to escape the ranks of poor attempt to do like the rich does, but they often fail because the cards are stacked against them. Kansas increased taxes on food, which directly impacts the poor much so than the rich. So, what is Hillary's platform on Middle class growth, aid to the poor, taxes, and increasing growth in small business? Is Hillary going to pounce on Wall Street, like Warren would like to do? It's surprising how Wall Street controls the things in business and money in this country. If you don't play the Wall Street game correctly by their rules, you just waddle in quick sand until you sink.

    3. How does Hillary compare to the world politics, even as she was a Secretary of State at one time? She may know a lot of ruling class around the world, but where does she stand in front of bullies like Putin? Putin is a future danger as he continues to antagonize Europe, America and other countries. China is seeking play the game of ignoring America and do what they desire to do in the world. North Korea with their spoiled child as a leader, is gas ready to ignite. America has many friends, but will they be happy with Hillary showing something less than strong leadership. Africa, South America and Southeast Asia can go either way from America to China to Russia. So, what would make Hillary look like she is not part of the grand scheme of things that makes the world turn in harmony? The many wars and conflicts in the Middle East will continue into the next century, so I don't see Hilary doing anything different than Obama. Does Hillary stand as a promise to the world to make changes for improvement in relations?

    4. When will any President make improvement to national security? Snowden has done extreme damage to America's security as well as in Europe and Britain. I don't believe Snowden was intelligent to realize what he was about to do. Of course, Russia and China knew what he was capable of doing and more than likely encouraged him to pursue the wicked treason of divulging secret information. What will Hillary do to tighten the reigns on national security. I highly doubt America and the world will recover what Snowden did for at least another 50 years. I haven't heard much from Obama on the national security issue, but he has a person in charge of that inner sanctum of the administration. America needs it's security, just like every country in the world tries to protect. I hope one day, all internet, communications and personal transactions will undergo some clearing house to capture corruption, crime, and terror. As much as Americans hate seeing their Freedoms exposed to prying eyes, we urgently need more security for protection. There are too many idiots with guns, predators on women and children and terrorists seeking to get their daily kill. Unfortunately, we find many high ranking people in business and politicians that are just raping America as they see fit. Will Hillary initiate the dogs to round them up or will see be status quo of do nothing like past Presidents.

    5. Our America needs spirit and it has been lacking since WWII. Can Hillary rally Americans to join in chorus and sing "God Bless America"? Since so many are anti-religion, they forget the many concepts of Godly principles and Beliefs that molded our country. Since race, sex and origins are ridiculed and persecuted in America, our country needs to think what is important. Is it more of the same? Can America stop what it's doing and accept people for who and what they are? Can America stop grade school playground tactics calling each other names and creating fear and mistrust? Having a woman in the highest office of our country may be the difference maker, since past men in this position has only continued America into a death spiral.

    I realize there are many other issues as they come up I'll bring them up, but please respond with our thoughts and anything that you have doubts on Hillary or that she will do fine as our next President. I will most likely vote for Ms. Hillary Clinton, but I continue have doubts, but pray that she will be a model woman that will make future Presidential candidates pleased to be "Woman". God Bless the American Vote!

    Re: 5 to what end? Which godly principles molded our country? Those of destroying indigenous peoples? Well, yes that is peppered throughout the Old Testament. How about slavery? Well, yes the entire bible is silent on the evils of slavery. How about an economy that works for all of the people? Nope, that one hasn't happened except when the great compression occurred and even then women and minorities were left standing in the lurch.

    You ask some very valid questions but alas the problems are not solvable by exceptionalism or "we're #1" or a so-called return to god spiritual revival.

    putin is far less of a problem than portrayed. He is a European problem right now primarily and his saber-rattling is predicated on an extractive economy. As Europe moves more and more to renewables his influence via gas and oil will wane. Instead of rebuilding his country's economy he played the nationalism and return to past glory cards. Something too many here think would be a good idea for the u.s.

    China has been waging economic warfar for several decades and the free marketers are allowing them to win. Of course for millennial before the industrial revolution China had the biggest economy in the world. They will again. We cannot stop that. Of more concern is the petrodollar/weapons recycling system that keeps the dollar as reserve currency.

    as for improving national security and your idea of an information clearing center, who watches the watchers? And remember 9/11 and obl utilized old technology. The same applies to ied's.

    unfortunately IMO Hillary is talking a good game but I have seen nothing in her past to make me think she has undergone a sea change.

    Sorry, AMC has no clue what makes the world turn. Sorry, Snowden should get a huge medal; our government makes sure that stupid Americans stay scared, so they can spent fortunes on spying on us; AMC is scared of "communists" but wants such "control" and bureaucracy here as well; he hates the word "'freedom" loves the army and whatever "dictates" and "controls" all your movements. He has no idea what Hilary is all about. L.A. I elect "Snowwhite" but not the dwarfs.

    I tried to be serious, but received garbage for responses. Like it has been said many times before, "If your not solving the problem, YOU must be part of the problem". Several responses have indicted true to form, ridicule, slander and poke stupidity calling people names.................surely, you must get over grade school playground tactics.

    This is about Hillary and does he stand for the unique moments in history to make a difference? Keep your religious persecution and ridicule to yourself.

    As the thread continues..............

    6. Does Hillary stand for the environment? Science does identify 4 feet of ocean rise by 2100. So, what does that mean for Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Houston, New Orleans? Better move back or put your house on pillars, because the ocean is coming. This is just mankind's impact hastening climate change to warming the globe melting the ice caps, which results in ocean's approach onto land. Fracking for oil, planting pipelines through precious lands, burning coal for electricity and even the more simpler people issue, throwing away trash (plastic, heavy metals -electronics & batteries) polluting our Earth. People in America are like parasites destroying the environment. So, where does Hillary stand on environmental issues?

    As I did state the obvious on Snowden's concept for a better world without security..............he's a fool thinking that he has stopped anything. Russia and China will soon release information, they are through with him and will release him to the World. Any bets on how long Snowden will survive? That poor fool doesn't have a clue what's coming next for him. Snowden a hero?????????????.............that's so lacking any intelligence. Snowden has assassinated many people around the world with his so called encrypted data and set back countries decades. The world will come back, but more cautious from hiring any fool hardy person in coming close to secure data. I feel sorry for Snowden's parents, because they are blameless and are living with shame in having no control over what their son did.

    Back to Hillary!

    7. Does Hillary promote Freedoms? That's tall order, but she talks well and appears to mean well, but does she have reforms ready to produce stopping persecution of people in America and round the world? Yes, "We" of America are persecuted by religion, sex, origin and race. If you don't believe this than you live in a glass bubble. Obama has been relatively quite, which I find troubling in a sitting President. I'd be mad as hell seeing the persecution and crime against people going on across America and be sitting in the highest office in the land. I would like to hear more on Hillary promoting people's rights?

    8. What about our economy? Where does Hillary stand on improving infrastructure which would boost jobs and transportation of goods and services? America is dying on infrastructure. Two years ago, I saw a report where a street was explored for access to a drain in front of city hall in Kansas City. A metal tag stamped on the drain said 1835. The drain was brick deteriorated over time and extremely undersized. Our streets, water lines, sewer lines, highways, railways, bridges and buildings are in many degrees of severity. So, where does Hillary make change to crumbing America?

    Do you all think you can keep this civil and on point about Hillary? I would expect better from children.

    She hasn't really proposed any clear cut agenda yet, just like all contenders outside of Bernie Sanders. I know where she stands on most issues, but she hasn't really laid out a specific agenda for Democrats to discuss and rally behind.

    I'm sure she will start putting forward more clear cut policy proposals as the campaign moves forward, but she hasn't said much of anything concrete for us to debate in the first place.

    Sorry, amc but you put forth a thesis based upon your opinions/responses to Hillary. So sorry that your quasi-religionist, "let's get back to God" crap doesn't solve any problems.

    you want solutions? I call bullshit. Hillary doesn't have any except for rearranging the deck chairs on the titanic.

    the various and sundry problems that we face are symptomatic of the underlying issues which aren't going to be solved by standing up to Putin, whatever the hell that means, or running every communication through a central point which of course would never carry the possibility of abuse of power. No, the underlying issues revolve around the fact that our actions/inactions, philosophies, belief structures and so on are framed as though they operate in a vacuum unrelated to each other. Why does Putin do what he does? Why does China? What underlying power structures influence movements of energy? How do energy flows impact the economy? Why is the economy viewed as something untouched by biology, ecology, sociology, psychology, politics and irrationality?

    The entire structure of society in general must be altered in order for solutions that benefit the whole to take hold. A politician such as Hillary who is invested in the status quo even if superficially opposed to various rantings from the right wing isn't going to present or even think of the solutions.

    Lonely; absolutely right on; some people refuse to see the big picture; indeed it is rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic. Has whatever "god" ever solved any of the worlds problems and cured cancer? AMC lives in la la land.

    Jared provided an adequate response which is clear evidence on Hillary. She has not laid out specifics on a platform but has produced "Good" words for people that enjoy listening to her. As the campaign continues, we will all see plans for her Presidency materialize. Hillary is holding back, thus not showing her all her cards until the last act. Hillary does not want to give the Repubs any material that they can use against her. If she reveals too much than Repubs will counter with falsehoods or will use her plans for their own candidacy to distract the American voter.

    I believe Hillary is just warming up for an explosive entrance into the Political main stream. Although Hillary has announced her plans for the Presidential ticket, it is just that and nothing more than warming up the audiences for her Grand Entrance. The Democratic convention may be the time to hear her plans, but don't count on very many specifics until time comes closer to the election. It's all about timing and if a candidate moves too fast than those that run against you will take away the advantage and use it for themselves.

    Hillary is in great standing as of last polling.

    Here's some other positions on asking Hillary where she stands:

    8. As this is close to environmental concerns, but centered on Climate Change/Global Warming. Will Hillary side with Global Warming Master and indicate she believes this earthly condition is "Man-Made"? Placing the Politics into more light on "Man-Made" disaster places a dire issue with business and the world community. Is Hillary bold enough to step up to the plate and deliver a homerun?

    9. Will Hillary support the Obama initiative to fund more college students and/or forgive student loans? I really like hearing Obama push this, but I do have doubts on how America can actually budget this extraordinary burden on our youthful experience after college. When you consider how much funds are spent for Defense, government and business in America, your first reaction is our national budget surely can make special allowance to help our college debts. I would appreciate hearing from Hillary how she would advise an administration to pursue forgiveness of student loan debt.

    Sorry, amc but you put forth a thesis based upon your opinions/responses to Hillary. So sorry that your quasi-religionist, "let's get back to God" crap doesn't solve any problems.

    you want solutions? I call bullshit. Hillary doesn't have any except for rearranging the deck chairs on the titanic.

    the various and sundry problems that we face are symptomatic of the underlying issues which aren't going to be solved by standing up to Putin, whatever the hell that means, or running every communication through a central point which of course would never carry the possibility of abuse of power. No, the underlying issues revolve around the fact that our actions/inactions, philosophies, belief structures and so on are framed as though they operate in a vacuum unrelated to each other. Why does Putin do what he does? Why does China? What underlying power structures influence movements of energy? How do energy flows impact the economy? Why is the economy viewed as something untouched by biology, ecology, sociology, psychology, politics and irrationality?

    The entire structure of society in general must be altered in order for solutions that benefit the whole to take hold. A politician such as Hillary who is invested in the status quo even if superficially opposed to various rantings from the right wing isn't going to present or even think of the solutions.

    Lonely; absolutely right on; some people refuse to see the big picture; indeed it is rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic. Has whatever "god" ever solved any of the worlds problems and cured cancer? AMC lives in la la land.

    Hillary talks the talk and walks the walk, BUT she is noncommittal and really marches to the tune of Wall Street no matter how much she tries to be Progressive she is only better than any Republican running and that's why, and only why, she shall win.

    As I've said before I'll just hold my nose and vote for her as she is the best of the worst. I'll be voting for Bernie in the NH primary and hopefully she will get the message when she loses NH but even if she does as soon as she's elected President she will do whatever Wall St. demands first and take care of us second. 'Tis the 'Merican way, fer sure!

    the noncommittal-ness of hilarious speeches and campaigning so far are not surprising. in point of opinion they mean nothing. am speaks of holding her cards close and then hoping for a big splash from hillary.

    here is why that won't happen.

    as i stated everything so far is symptomatic. they do nothing to address underlying issues attendant with capitalism and energy flows which impact heavily capital flows. and hillary ain't the one to suggest radical shifts in the political economy. issues such as college debt or global warming are important but outside of the context of reshaping the system of transactions between parties, between parties and the environment, between nation-states and the environment and so on they pale into insignificance.

    now perhaps hillary really does get it and she seeks to be transformative as opposed to transactional. i have seen nothing so far to lead me to believe this is the case.

    and btw i will vote for her should she be the nominee because the alternative of a republican would be far worse.
