    P.R. let the B.S. continue; it will be still a long road until the elections; everything is possible; may I start running and reclaim this country for the Dutch; Trump is forgetting that New York used to be Dutch.

    Yes the way it looks like, Bernie has the most common sense, so I hope he keeps pushing the truth about this country; he gives the right answers on questions and does not beat around the "bush" like most of the candidates.

    Howard Dean, Washington Post, September, 1, 2015: Howard Dean: The Case for Hillary Clinton

    "Clinton’s three most compelling characteristics continue to be her vast experience in foreign and domestic policy; her tenacity and history of getting things done across the political aisle, particularly as a senator; and the ferocious enthusiasm of her followers, particularly among young women working for true political gender equity that is long overdue.

    "Clinton is not only the smartest and the toughest person in the race, she is also the person who has put forward specific policy proposals on issues ranging from profit sharing for workers, revitalizing rural America, criminal justice reform, universal automatic voter registration, to an economic plan that recognizes equal pay, paid family leave and childcare are essential to competitiveness and growth." -- Howard Dean

    Howard Dean goes on to describe her other positive attributes and experience. This is not taking anything away from Bernie Sanders, but he has not undergone the degree of scrutiny and vitriol from a misinformed media that both of the Clintons have had to endure their entire political careers. Why? Because the right wing oligarchs fear her more than any other candidate. They hate her...they fear her...they will do anything to stop her.

    Of course if you need an excuse to doubt her, then just pile on with the "e-mail scandal". Nothing else matters, hey. Otherwise, get used to the sound of it: President Hillary Clinton.

    I don't disagree with you (or Howard Dean for that matter) very often, but I have to here.

    What do the right wing oligarchs fear so much about Secretary Clinton? Her policy positions align very closely with theirs, especially when it comes to foreign and monetary policy. I think their "fear" of her is more of a smokescreen than anything else.

    Wall Street and the wealthy elite are bankrolling her campaign and that leaves a bad taste in my and many other peoples mouths. I think the wealthy elite would love to see a race between Clinton and Bush because they are pretty much the same politicians outside of holding opposing views on all of the typical culture war issues that have been able to divide and conquer the electorate for a couple of decades now.

    I don't think any Democrat is paying much attention to this manufactured scandal. The "news" loves talking about it, but a variety of polls have shown that no one other than the "news" and Republicans care much about it at all.

    My issues with Secretary Clinton have far more to do with her hawkish foreign policy positions and her close ties to Wall Street. I also have a very serious issue with the fact that a Bush or Clinton has been President or Vice President for the vast majority of my life. If it weren't for President Obama then there would have been a Bush or Clinton as President or Vice President for my entire life.

    I firmly believe that more than two families can lead our nation. We have over 300 million people residing in this great country of ours. Can't we find more than two families to lead us and not allow them treat the Presidency like it's a hot potato?

    I'd much rather hear that instead of "President Jeb Bush," but that doesn't mean I will be excited about it.
