    ...the most qualified person with the platform most aligned with my values. If the last name is Roosevelt, Clinton Eisenhower, Adams, Cuomo, or Kennedy and they are the most qualified and most in line with my values, they will get my support -- dynastic or not.

    To me, saying "I won't vote for this person because of their last name" is the kind of arbitrary, low information voter claptrap that gets this country in trouble. Just as arbitrary as voting FOR someone because of their last name, or their hair color, or their fashion sense.

    There are other things that could cause Hillary to not earn my support. But her married name will not be among the reasons preventing me from supporting the candidate who will make the best President. If that turns out to be her, good. If not, good.

      her last name is Clinton.  I'm an old Obama staffer....so I want you to imagine the feelings I used to feel towards Hillary Clinton.  She has completely turned my opinion around for her because of the fantastic job she is doing as SOS.

      I know Hillary's platform, she's a true blue Dem.  And I can't think of one issue where I disagree with her.  So short of her changing her stance on issues that are important to me, I would work and vote for Hillary.  Not Hillary "Clinton".
