  •  Interesting Reasoning (0+ / 0-)

    I have to hand it to you, your "perverse" reasoning is interesting. And I hope you are right.

    But I think it's too much of a risk that such perverse reasoning (That her high negatives are actually good) will work when we can't afford it not working.

    It may just be simpler to do the obvious... which is choose a candidate that doesn't have these terrible negatives and just win this time like we are supposed to win.

    •  John Kerry (0+ / 0-)

      Didn't have "Terrible Negatives" and the Republicans still trashed and smeared and ridiculed him.  They will do it to whoever we nominate.  Republicans have been terrible leaders for our nation for the last 13 years, and most Americans know it.  All they have left is to slime our candidates.  It's going to happen no matter who we nominate.  It is, however, a debatable point about whether prior negatives are relevant to how successful the only slimy move in the GOP's playbook will be.

      That said, my above comment isn't "why" I support Hillary--it was to answer nevadadem's question about Hillary's affect on downballot races, which is a legitimate one.  I don't decide who I'm going to support for president based on that consideration, but it's a fair point to ponder.
