I don't know if she has killed the party or not but I do know that in my county, formerly a Dem bastion, not a single Hillary sign can be found. Not even members of the Dem Executive Committee. A couple of those Comm members have a sign for the Dem senate candidate but nobody has a Hillary sign. Nor have the Dems opened a campaign headquarters in the county and they say it will be September before they can rent a spot. Now, several members of that Comm are US veterans. That could explain their reluctance to support the former SOS. Bernie got 55% of the primary vote here and averaged 50% in surrounding region with only about 7% voting "none of the above."

Did you read the OP, or just shoot from the hip because YOU are entrenched in your own left right paradigm?
I have enjoyed watching the political establishment on the left and the right crumbling before our eyes
Read the OP before you post. At least give people the common courtesy before you run around trashing them for your own confirmation bias.[/quote]
Sure, first 2 lines did it for me. I'm pretty sick of of this R VS L movement. I am not a Democrat, never have been lifelong Independent for 40 years, except for once when I registered Republican in an effort to block Bushie from becoming President.
Sorry I didn't watch your video, we are all in this together. Bankers are the problem.
Both Parties are a Joke. Vote 3rd Party.

What are you talking about the fall party of the DNC?
I just saw the convention and they said they are united and they are going to fix the same things they been promising for 4 decades.
This time they mean it becuase she has a VAG.

Both parties are a mess. I would like to think that people are ready to vote for a viable Third Party candidate but I still think they would rather wallow in the pig sty that is their chosen major party. The paradigm of, 'everything they do is bad and everything we do is good' is not an easy one to overcome but I it is my sentiment that know, more than anytime in the past two decades, that there is a large segment of the citizenry that sees the farcical nature of supporting either side of the same coin.

The "third parties" aren't yet viable. NOT this election.

It's not just the U.S parties that are in a mess.
The entire world is beginning to wake up and see the Establishment for what they are. Maybe there will be a similar awakening amongst the Islam world and they will genuinely stand up to any oppressive regime.
With regards to Bernie, he can feel and sense this change and in many ways he has contributed to its cause. That is reflected here in the U.K with Jeremy Corbyn. He's had nothing but negative press since he became leader of the Labour Party, but he offers an alternative to the Establishment's vice like grip on our legal system.
Times, they are definitely a changing.
I thought men wanted more of that?? Ohhhh. Just not in charge.
I think it was also making fun of the meme or "quote" that people have shared that says this:
"If I were to run, I'd run as a Republican. They're the dumbest group of voters in the country. They believe anything on Fox News. I could lie and they'd still eat it up. I bet my numbers would be terrific." Donald Trump to People Magazine in 1998
(This quote is fake but people shared it left and right thinking it was real)
