    Ok, I am a bit discouraged. I have worked on campaigns all my life In fact I know all the people that you talk about. I know politics. My father was a State Chair, I have been a county chair and I am used to saying one thing about one candidate and comparing them to another. I am not used to the hostile attitude with my choice of Hillary. It seems to me that because I think she is the best choice that we have given the announced candidates that that is somehow so wrong to support her. I don't support her just because she is a woman, I just happen to think that with the candidates we have now it is the ideal time to take this qualified candidate to the top and break that ceiling. No more no less. To accuse me of choosing her just because she is a woman is rather insulting. I have spent much of my life getting Democrats elected. I will continue to do so. I believe I have made the right choice because I believe If not NOW.....WHEN???

    I presumed from the beginning that you were Democrats and you knew of all of Hillary's accomplishments and that you compare them equally to the other Democratic Candidates. I guess I was wrong. Talking points against her prevail. I have a limited amount of candidates to choose from Right? One just happens to be a woman. And I chose her. Do I have that right? Why don't you all tell me about the candidate you support and WHY??? Now these are limited to people actually running. Let me know. By the way, if you read my posts you would see I supported many candidates over the years. If not Now...WHEN??? denotes the times we are in, the availability of candidates to carry on Democratic ideals and who best can carry on what OBama has started.Just as 2008 was not right for Hillary, maybe, just maybe it is now.

    "First of all, it feels as if that whatever the story is you are wrestling is ubiquitous, it is everywhere because of the reverberative effect of the way we cover politics," Axelrod said. "Number two, invariably, all your good friends across the country are very generous with their advice, sometimes to you or sometimes in unnamed quotes to Sam Stein. This is a time that every kibitzer in politics knows better about what you should be doing than you do. ... You spend an awful lot of time dealing with the nervous kibitzer and the nation of aspiring political consultants."

    Quote from Axelrod above. I note on almost every article on the email controversy that according to anonymous sources. I tell you that anonymous guy gets around HAHA,. I for one, search out the truth especially if it comes anonymously! I asked a question above about Hillary as Secretary of state and the head of the State Department.

    Two former lobbyists for the for profit Prison Groups are bundlers of monies from Donor's for her campaign. These 2 lobbyists on documents she submitted both totally received from various donors money for her campaign, Where they got the money is anyone's guess? They were not her largest donors, one totaled over 43,000 and the other 250,000 Her donations to date are 60 million. Her first speech when she came out for prison and incarceration reform may have come as a shock to them as it was contrary to her husband's stance (her husband was for "tough on crime" in the 90's.) She was not the only one I believe Rubio actually is being supported from the For Profit Business itself not just lobbyist bundlers. I do not know if he also filed his election documents. Most of the candidates, when I review the election docs had not filed yet. There may be a real shuffling of donors as each of these candidates reveal their campaign platforms. Maybe this was a little shock and AWE for them.

    Thank you for your voice for women! I have kind of an elementary question almost funny re-guarding the non-issue of her emails. Wasn't she as Secretary of State, the head of the Department at the time? Hillary as the boss of that department was entitled to handle her non-classified email any way she chose. Correct??. She chose to handle it like Collin Powell. She only answered to Barack Obama as President. He placed her in that extremely responsible position because he trusted her. Right? Because the rules were amended in 2014, after she left they did not pertain to her. If they do we must call for Collin Powells, Condoleezza Rice's and any government employee who handled their email the same way. By god, she was the Head....This is a Partisan Witch hunt.. Republicans can just do as they please, Hoping we will not call out their lies and deception. This time they are wrong. Their twisted words and meanings have only one goal Hillary is a BIG problem for them. My question is why do we not see her worth and they do????

    There is a road that women have walked since the beginning of this Country. A road that must now with this opportunity be taken. Women have encountered name-calling, held hunger strikes, been jailed, demonstrated and even died for wanting an equal say in their government. It has been over 200+ years and the fight has been long and grueling. Those against the movement have used ever despicable mode to disrupt us, They want to control what we say and do, and yes even our vote. We must not let that happen. I believe that for everyone, male or female, who feels threatened by a woman in high office, there are thousands who will vote for Hillary because of what she stands for. She stands up for women everywhere. As a woman she understands and supports that we no longer want men to control our health, our means to help support our families, our place in society, our rights in pro-creation and yes our strengths in our accomplishments. Hillary's accomplishments are far and wide, They are:

    She went to work for the Children’s Defense Fund, going door to door in New Bedford, Massachusetts, gathering stories about the lack of schooling for children with disabilities, this led to legislation requiring the education of Children with Disabilities.

    She was one of the Lawyers representing the Congressional Committee investigating of Nixon.

    She taught law and represented the poor and co-founded an organization, Arkansas Advocates of Children and Families that represented children and the poor in Arkansas.

    She has as first lady of Arkansas, and this Nation fostered health care, and educational standards that promote equality for all.

    She worked across aisles(Republicans and Democrats alike)to help create a Children's Health Insurance Program

    She led a delegation (with voices against her ) to Beijing and addressed the UN Fourth World Conference on Women on women's rights.

    She was the FIRST woman Senator from New York. After 911 she helped secure 20 billion to help rebuild. She worked to have rural and poor areas receive tech equipment and broadband for their benefit. She fostered Farm to Fork for the farmers to sell their produce to business.

    As Secretary of State she represented this Country, she began the arduous task of mending fences that the Bush administration had destroyed.

    Her resume as a strong advocate for women, children, and the poor and disadvantaged can not be beat

    I will say and I know it will bring out cry, this has to be an election based on Women and women's rights because it is not just about women it is about who she is. It will bring causes of the poor, children, the incarcerated, immigrants and civil rights to the forefront. Up to now, no one with her depth in these causes and her advocacy has sat in that seat. This is why a vote for Hillary has depth and meaning.

    Is their a double standard for Hillary being applied. Here are resent examples of "scandals"????

    While recent reports suggest Colin Powell likewise used personal email during his tenure as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton isn’t even the only 2016 candidate to be embroiled in such a controversy. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, currently a favorite in the 2016 GOP primary, has been under investigation for the past four years for his office’s use of private email accounts to avoid public scrutiny. And for good reason: The emails to and from the account show Walker’s gubernatorial staff effectively running his campaign for him, a major campaign finance violation in Wisconsin and most states.

    While Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney had state email servers wiped clean right before such records would have gone public. Mirroring Romney, IRS official Lois Lerner was held in contempt of Congress for claiming emails connecting her to the undue targeting of conservative groups were lost in a damaged hard drive (however, the emails were “miraculously” recovered). Right before their exit, the Bush administration seemed to misplace 22 million emailsover eight years—a scandal Hillary Clinton likely knew well, considering how many of the emails involved the State Department she was adopting.

    Even if you do not support her candidacy to allow this double standard to apply is negligent if not shameful on our part. Lets drown them with the truth.

    I agree. She has not got her Mojo yet. She needs to put more pzazz in her speeches. Just like, Claire, Barbara Boxer etc. They need to move-on from the trumped up (pun) email story and barnstorm appearances throughout the country. She needs to become our TRUMP. She has the resume she needs to flaunt it. Dare the media to come out and get her. Show her strengths. Show her feisty!
