We have had more than enough of the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC). Moving the Democrats to the "middle" (into the clutches of Wall Street) may have seemed like "a good idea at the time," but that time, if it ever existed, certainly is over.
Obama has been nothing but Clinton in blackface. In case you hadn't noticed, Obama actually is not black. Maybe a lot of blacks may not have noticed that yet, but it's true. Raised in a middle-class white family and educated in a series of hoity-toity white schools, he's no more black than that asshole friend of his, Arne Duncan (who went to private schools, but occasionally played basketball with so-called "brothers".) I don't know if the low turnout of black voters in the midterms indicates they've figured out the "not so dark" secret or not, but it's a distinct possibility.
Regardless of whether she will be elected or not, Hillary will be a disaster for progressive Democrats. There really are progressive Democrats, and they deserve a shot at the presidency, even though they quite possibly might lose.
We deserve a clear choice in 2016. We deserve clear policy choices, not just "tired old lady" v. "hot shot right wing demagogue," or "safe favorite of the plutocrats not aligned with Hillary."
A pox upon all their houses. I'm tired of casting protest votes. Give me a real choice.
