Now, before you Hillary fans get your panties all in a wad allow me to explain. I am not a Hillary hater, I have other preferences for president, but I would take Hillary over any republican any day. And I don't say it will be bad because I believe that if Hillary wins the nomination she will not win the Presidency, I think she could very well win. So follow me below the jump and allow me explain.
As I would hope we are all aware, the republicans, as that bunch of liars are known, have been demonizing Hillary for years. And they have had plenty of help from the MSM. This is not Hillary's fault and it is quite unfair. But, be that as it may, that is how things are.
The problem as I see it is that those on the right after having listened to all of the lies and distortioins over the years have truly developed a deep seated hatred for Hillary. And I mean it when I use the word "Hatred", those people really hate her. Is it justified, no, but it is what it is. I doubt there is anyone they hate more with the possible exception of Ted Kennedy.
So why will it be bad for progressives?
If Hillary wins that nomination just imagine the dollars all those Hillary haters will pour into the republican coffers. Imagine how easy it will for the liars club, (Rush, Sean, Bill, Ann, Michelle, Glenn, Laura, etc), to whip their poor deluded listeners/readers into a campaign donating frenzy. All the way up and down the ticket, local to national, the republicans will have loads of extra money and volunteers to spread their misinformation, lies, and hate and elect people of dubious character whose only interest is supporting failed policies that benefit the wealthy and the corporations at the expense of most americans and the progressive cause.
In my opinion Hillary should not run. I think we would all be much better served by Hillary in the Senate than Hillary in the Whitehouse.
It's not fair, but that's the way I see it.
