    Republican Max Boot,with the porn star name, has this to say:

    "Trump is an ignorant demagogue who traffics in racist and misogynistic slurs and crazy conspiracy theories. He champions protectionism and isolationism

    Hillary Clinton is a centrist Democrat who is more hawkish than President Obama and far more principled and knowledgeable about foreign affairs than Trump, who is too unstable and erratic to be entrusted with the nuclear triad he has never heard of. Even in his prepared foreign policy speech couldn't pronounce “Tanzania.” For all her shortcomings (and there are many), Clinton would be far preferable to Trump."

    I'm certain that some Republican moderates and conservatives will vote for Clinton. These are people who care about the legacy and significance of the oval office. I'm also certain that some left-wing liberal democrats and independents masquerading as democrats will vote for Trump because they have a very negative emotional response to Clinton. However, we cannot underestimate party loyalty. Most Republicans and Democrats will vote for their respective parties in the privacy of the voting booth, regardless of their public pronouncements.

    i lived through the Bill Clinton era. I am impressed by his presidency despite its short falls. Dont judge Bill by todays standards (sexual harassment). He paid off the national debt. the nation ran reasonably well, so for me its all about which administration enabled myself to make the most money. I made lots of money during the Clinton and Obama administrations. I think government can create opportunity.

    i also was impressed during that time how Hillery kept her family together. Very very impressive. She was an accomplished lawyer & politician and could have dumped Bill.


    Trump is unstable and has accomplished little of value in recent years.j

    Accomplished politicianicon_question.gif what drugs are you on bunk. Hillary was a do nothing US Senator who rode on the coat tails of other successful, effective political leaders for all her so called accomplishments. If it were not for Bill Clinton, this power hungry bimbo would be an obscure, everyday hack just getting by in the real world. She is a violent tempered, over controlling bitch who could easily start World War Three and get the U.S. blown right off the face of the earth. Donald Trump despite his faults is a far better and safer choice for President.

    Bill Clinton who, during the big budget fight in 1995, had to submit not one, not two, but five budgets until he begrudgingly matched the GOP’s balanced-budget plan. In fact, during the height of the budget wars in the summer of 1995, the Clinton administration admitted that “balancing the budget is not one of our top priorities.”
