I never understood the hatred towards Hillary Clinton, but I think much of it has to do with the constant right wing attacks on her...from Benghazi to the e-mails. And of course, Bernie and Jill Stein supporters. They learned to hate her too. And now more investigations? Sheesh...attacking her continuously seems to excite Trump's base. "Lock her up!" They probably have an orgasm just thinking about it.
In any case, she is an accomplished woman, extremely intelligent, and had plans for most everything, much the same as Elizabeth Warren, except Hillary's were less radical...not that different from Joe Biden's. I was one of the few that studied her proposals in HillaryClinton.com. That's the main reason I supported her.
For example, take a look at her plan to combat Climate Change in 2016. "She will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 30 percent in 2025 relative to 2005 levels and put the country on a path to cut emissions more than 80 percent by 2050."
These targets are more modest than the more recent New Green Deal, but probably more achievable.
Overall, she was not treated fairly by the media during the 2016 election. The mainstream media was more focused on ratings, and Trump's outrageousness delivered ratings to them big time. He got so much free air time by being an entertainer rather than an accomplished candidate qualified to hold the top office in the land. He's a con artist. And at the same time, every one of Hillary's faults was magnified over and over again, trying to sensationalize something without traction.
There are multiple reasons Hillary lost, and as close as the race was, people can point the finger at any number of factors to find fault. I don't dispute that. But I still believe that she was the most qualified person in a long time to run for president. The voters just didn't know it. Emotions trumped critical thinking.
Hillary Clinton remains a class act.
