    I mean uninformed - will change the title.  They vote but they don't do the research.  They just listen to the soundbytes.

      ...everyone who can vote now was aware to some degree from 1993-2001, I think. If they're not informed by now I, sadly, think it's kind of a lost cause. Republicans hate the Clintons for all the wrong reasons, and I (and many others) dislike them in ways that aren't easily swallowed by folks on the left. But everyone who can vote this time around should be plenty informed if getting informed is what they're interested in.

        I think the problem is that people think Hillary Clinton will be the same as the Clintons in the 1990s.    A lot has happened since then.  We cannot timewarp back to the 1990s by voting for Hillary Clinton.  And memories of the bad aspects of an admittedly mixed Administration fade over time.  This is probably why Hillary Clinton will not release her records as First Lady even though she said the experience places her above her opponents.
