You really need to read this if you still believe there is a meaningful difference between the 2 parties. I’ve said for some time that Hillary is the most Nixonian candidate since Nixon. I am now amending that to read: Hillary is the most Nixonian candidate, ever!
“I would say that a majority of people in my circle will vote for Hillary,“ leading neoconservative Robert Kagan told people at a Clinton fundraiser.

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton register net negative ratings in double digits, indicating the front-runners for each party’s presidential nominations are viewed negatively at historic levels, according to a new CBS/New York Times poll.

What the article doesn’t mention is that Trump’s negatives are improving. Meanwhile, Hillary’s–although still slightly better than Trumps–have been steady for the past 2 years. If trends continue, Trump could be viewed more favorably than Hillary by November. Either way, barring a meteor strike, we will be electing a president that more than half the population do not like.
Bernie Sanders is the most electable and honest candidate Democrats have in 2016, which is why he will win the nomination and can easily beat any GOP candidate. After all, you can’t win the presidency with the FBI as a running mate and money can’t buy a voter’s trust.

Item #2 illustrates why if Hillary is nominated, the Republicans get a free ride to the Whitehouse.
Item #3 is important to the extent that it relates to item #2. She has never come clean on the email “scandal”. I am not even sure that there is a scandal there… But in typical Hillary fashion, she invokes the lawyerly stipulated view of reality, admitting to only what can be proven. This causes the leaks to dribble out which leaves her to backtrack and modify her story to fit into the “new” reality. Had she come clean on the email thing the day after it started, we could be talking about something else now. Hillary’s secretive and hyper-suspicious demeanor would be better suited to the business world than to politics (see item #5).
