    Look, Cuomo with his precious Republicans for Cuomo is far FAR less of Democrat than either Bill or Hillary. Say what you will about their economic philosophy, the Clintons are, and have been for quite some time, true Democrats.

    After all of the shit they've taken from the Republicans, exempting a few personal friendships, their views and positions are clear.

    What I find irritating here is the absolute disavowing of any centrist/moderate national politician. Bill rarely gets any credit for his accomplishments, and I've seen many MANY comments calling Hillary a Republican, or one who fits in with them.

    We're a big tent party, and I for one intend to keep it that way. Not that Cuomo sucks any less, I'm just saying you shouldn't drag Hillary to his level.

      Clintons in the 90s, though I don't like much of what they did, don't equal Clintons now.

      For instance, look at this:

      This guy isn't just a far-right toxic loon, he personally targeted Bill and Hillary during the 90s. But apparently all's forgiven now.

      I see little to trust, at this point.

        But I still truly doubt Cuomo and Hillary would ideologically fit well together.

        I have a residual fondness for Bill though, I don't know what it is... Maybe it's just his innate Southern nature. I really find it appealing in a politician. Hillary doesn't have that, nor a quarter of Bill's natural charisma.

        Not that I don't support her, I just wish she were more empathic, ya know? It was very clear what she lacked in that respect in '08.
