barack obama hillary clinton
What I know of Hillary's journey I know only in the context of my lifetime, and it's easy to feel that Hillary has accomplished much of what she's accomplished alone. But the reality is other women ran for both president and vice president before 2008, all aiding in the realization of Clinton's 2016 "clinch."
It was unnecessary, as it clearly detracted from some otherwise good points Sanders was making about Clinton's record. And it played into the old attacks that female candidates have had to repeatedly face over the years.
If Hillary Clinton Treated Jewish Americans Like She's Treated African Americans, Democrats Would Notice
The premise of the title above has nothing to do with Israel, or any perception of political power possessed by Jewish Americans. Rather, it's a discussion of a double-standard that I see, as a Jewish American and political writer, between the use of racism, versus anti-Semitism, in American politics.
Iraq, Trustworthiness, and the FBI Investigation Make Bernie Sanders More QualifiedThan Hillary Clinton
Before addressing the differences in their Iraq votes and favorability ratings, Democrats should take a trip down memory lane and revisit the 2008 Democratic Primary. Now that Bill Clinton has displayed his true feelings towards Black Lives Matter, months after Southern states helped Hillary take an early lead, it's important to remember that the Clintons utilized racism against Obama.
Every single one of the voting irregularities the Obama campaign complained about in 2008 have been experienced by the Bernie Sanders campaign. History is repeating itself in 2016.
I'm not saying writing-in Bernie, if Clinton is the nominee, will be perfect. However, as I've heard throughout this election, "don't let perfect be the enemy of the good."
Bernie Sanders is the only Democrat not linked to an FBI investigation. If this doesn't mean anything to you, then you're too terrified of Trump's rallies to realize that Clinton could get indicted.
Election Day is around the corner, and it's irrational to believe an ongoing FBI investigation doesn't hurt a Democrat's chances of winning the presidency.
While Bernie might not ask Clinton why she had the server, the answer will make him president. Hillary Clinton was the only Secretary of State since the invention of email never to use a State.gov email address, and the reasons why she used a private server exclusively will lead to Bernie Sanders winning the Democratic nomination, and destroying Donald Trump in the general election.
Bernie Sanders does better against Donald Trump. Be careful what you wish for, because Donald Trump could be president if Clinton is nominated. As it stands, Bernie Sanders won big on Tuesday. He'll fight to the end, and the FBI hasn't voted yet.
Bernie Sanders has indeed earned everything he's ever accomplished in politics, and was never given a free pass on scandal or controversy. He's certainly benefited from being white, but this benefit doesn't allow him to circumvent an FBI investigation or flawed Congressional votes on war.
Bernie Sanders has never taken money from prison lobbyists. Never. Why would politicians accept money from interests they oppose? Bernie's goal is to ban private prisons. Hillary has a similar goal, but takes money from prison lobbyists. Does this make sense to you?
As someone who has attended Bernie Sanders rallies and written about his impressive candidacy, I expected him to prevail in the Milwaukee debate. But Hillary Clinton prevailed by going to the mat for her former boss.
Bernie Sanders will save America from becoming a coin flip democracy because his value system is the antithesis of Clinton's coin flip evolution on almost every major topic. In terms of fundraising after Iowa, and delegates, he won the first contest.
While many in the media are just starting to jump on Bernie's bandwagon, the paradigm will change dramatically after Iowa and New Hampshire wins.
Today's Democratic choices consist of a candidate endorsed by Rahm Emanuel, or Bernie Sanders, a candidate endorsed by 2.3 million contributions from American voters. For Bernie Sanders, the average campaign contribution is less than $30. At one of Emanuel's Chicago fundraising events for Clinton, admission was $2,500.
Hillary Clinton, not Bernie Sanders, should be singled out as furthering white supremacy and privilege. Someone needs to define white supremacy, if indeed accepting money from prison lobbyists isn't an egregious example of privilege and supremacy.
Bernie Sanders will win the first four contests of the 2016 Democratic Primary for the same reasons he won the endorsements 170 economists, MoveOn.org and The Nation. Furthermore, Sanders dominated the latest Democratic debate because he's never had to evolve from a conservative vantage point, towards a progressive stance
Americans have never voted for someone they don't like and don't trust, which says something about the Clinton and Trump campaigns. When only one candidate is trusted in a presidential election, and another remembers landing in Bosnia under sniper fire (that never happened), there's only one likely outcome.
