    do you not see my blockquote of the exact quote from her?  And the part where I said I'm summarizing the video for people who maybe can't watch it?

    I feel for you Betty. It must be hard for you to have these difficulties. And it's unfortunate that you have to resort to fiction to make your points. But I'm trying to be understanding of your deficiencies.

    The action here is for people to get to know Warren. Sorry, I thought that was clear.  

    I would be disappointed if she doesn't get this office. But I'm not presuming disappointment like many others here. That's not the way I live.

      The action here is for people to get to know Warren. Sorry, I thought that was clear.

      I think the intention was to provide information AND a place for smug commentary that continues the derailment of this site.

      You could do two things to change that and then I, and I'm fairly sure a few others would be happy to tip and rec this diary.

      1. Remove the Huffington post line in the diary.
      1. As the diarist wishing to promote a superbly qualified candidate for the post rather than promote divisiveness, you should remove your 4's on the sarcastic and divisive comments.

      Education is too big to fail. Truth is too big to fail. Justice is too big to fail. Peace is too big to fail.

      There is no block quote or quotation marks. Just sayin.

      It's a shame you can't engage in real discussion.

      There's no honorable way to kill, no gentle way to destroy. There is nothing good in war. Except its ending.

        I had no idea your vision was impaired too. I'll show you the bigger part that is a direct quote, in a blockquote, with quotation marks. Clickfor the larger version:
        Photobucket

        See: that's what a direct quote looks like. The other part was my summary of the video as I had stated. I'm sorry you can't see the difference.

        To further assist you, let me show you one that is not a direct quote, but a fiction created by you: Photobucket

        I deeply apologize for you not understanding the part where I said I was summarizing the video. I had assumed people had better reading comprehension that and would be able to follow along through several paragraphs.
