It's possible that Hillary Clinton could be a great President, yes as the most qualified and prepared and as someone who's learned some hard lessons along the way ie: that anger isn't a plan.

Maybe she will be able to work across the isle and implement the platform, all of which makes sense as a way forward for the country.

A visceral hatred is not a rational basis to vote.

You could be blinded by it. In other words, maybe the person and the caricature (witch) are not one in the same thing.

Trump supporters appear to be ruled by their emotions and projections.

Clinton knows full well that the trade off for sustained prosperity is sustained peace and a settled world, and I'm pretty sure that's what she's going to work real hard to achieve.

While easing relations with Russia and China and finding a way to a solution in Syria, where they either have to balkanize or remove Assad from power.

I'm just super optimistic, provided that Donald Trump never gets anywhere near the White House.

Best regards,

Ankh

that was very verbose and ill founded.

I am not emotional about Hillary. I see her as being so ill qualified and inept for the position it is astounding she is propped up as she is now.

I am emotional about Trump though. He has made me believe in a way out of this mess that works with the system. I was resigned to never care again after Ron Paul, not until the first shot and fire was fired and lit.

I have faith we can fix this again. Trump did that.

Hillary has experience failing miserably, being corrupt and full of it.

Her 30 years in government are like my 2 years of soccer. I dont get to say I am a good soccer player just because I went through the motions while I lost most games.

Is absurd. Scary. Surreal.

Confounding.

Time will tell if any of my predictions will come true, starting in precisely 2 weeks from now.

It's sort of like doom porn in a way, but better because there's a real date and an outcome.

Mark my words,

But don't be mad or frown.

It will be good. You'll see.

I wont get mad. I will resign myself to never forgetting that we can win. I will never give up again. I will always care and this is just the begining.

Mark my words. Nothing will ever be the same again after this election.

Maybe the Republican party will get back to what it should be. Instead of being dominated by the religious right.

That would be nice. I think the party should be scrapped. Precisely over the religious nonsense.

Small government and Christian religion are like apples and bannanas

It is a subversive and divisive tactic of the parties leadership.

I hope all organized religion dies.

Its a bad time machine stuck on stupid.

After the election, someone should come out with a Trump teddy bear.

Trumpy.

In other words, they would rather have their Trumpy than to remake their Party based on the old model and set of values.

just curious is this hillary campaign what the democrats should be?

I don't think all the urbanites in Texas are Rep. That's a stereotype to consider it to be that red.


Of course not. Most democrats are in the urban areas. Some of the urban reps though would have to switch to Clinton for a win, given the previous profile of voting of late.

After further review and analysis, I've determined that Texas won't go blue this year, but, the only reason for that is because it was always considered by the Dems and the Clinton campaign to be a Red State not worth fighting for. Had they campaigned there, and poured resources into it, as with Florida for example, it could have been won. Same thing with Georgia.

This reveals a lack of imagination and a cautionary "traditionalist" bent to the Clinton campaign who were so concerned with protecting her "Blue Wall" to guard the path to 270, that they failed, early on in envisioning a possible landslide victory and thus a mandate that would have awarded them with a hat trick, winning the Presidency, and control of both the House and the Senate.

It was a missed opportunity.,

But if the Republican Party doesn't get its act together after this election, and come up with something more affirmative, optimistic and inclusive - then they WILL be wiped out in 2020, provided Hillary is able to deliver on her promises and say bring the Bernie Sanders people into her camp while governing and being held to account, with some hard lessons learned along the way I'm sure.

I think that Georgia and Texas, for a total of 56 prize electoral votes, reveals a demographic that ought to favor the Democratic progressive platform - if it can deliver for them and maintain the upward trend of positive outlook indicators, which are swinging away from a more pessimistic and cynical view of the country as peddled by Donald Trump.

This is a big problem for the Republicans, because the Dems won't make the same mistake next time - unless there's still time....?

If you HEAVED resources in that direction, right now, with Georgia being an extension of Florida's ground game, then it might be possible to flip both those States with great closing argument ads, and field offices for the get out the vote - but that could be done via the Internet, with a calling and door to door volunteer swell during these last two weeks.

The Clinton Campaign understands the use of ground operations and a field office infrastructure.

If this is a type of "war" then why not pivot and make a bid for Texas and Georgia. Right now the Clinton campaign is only out by around three or four points max, with 10% remaining undecided until late in the game... which swings it, those undecided voters who if they see a good case put forward in a closing argument, are likely to tip in favor of Clinton.

Which is why, while Citizen's United has not yet been overturned, if I were the Clinton Campaign I'd be cold calling big money donors with Clinton herself manning the phone to drum up a surprise 100 million for the final week.

An indicator will be if Democrat SuperPACs suddenly swell with donations - and I don't see why they wouldn't in order to prevent Trump from winning while securing a mandate to govern and to enact the Party Platform, which is a good one, worked out in collaboration with Bernie Sanders.

This next week is going to be filled with fireworks!

Clinton I think has shown herself to be on a rather conservative approach that goes no further than where the information and initial assessments indicate, and to a degree lacks a certain courage and boldness, as if careful to play it safe and not somehow blow the opportunity to win it.

That's a good trait in a future President (not a loose cannon), even if in this case they didn't get ahead of the curve, but there's still time if they pay attention to what goes on at ATS (which is possible). LOL

Therefore, I'm not about to completely give up and say I lost the bet of the OP, yet...

Best regards,

Ankh

Election night should be as interesting as this election has been annoying. Texas could go blue. Clinton within 5 points.

I think that is not a bad opinion on the result. Hillary has been a bad name in rural texas (at least in my area) for years. It's gonna be hard to overcome. But then she would only have to a few more votes than Trump to get the electoral votes. I don't think it will happen this round.
