      1. Hillary the anti-suffragist

      “they’ll just vote for who their husbands and even fathers tell them to”; also she thinks like a conservative Saudi cleric

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-suffragism

      now ask her about the Black vote/poll numbers!

        Your post triggered a memory of the time when Her got scolded by the media for announcing Her intended to “Stand By Her Man,” just like the song says!

         

        The beatdown Hillary was handed had nothing to do with Bernie Bros, Russia, a VRWC, Comey, the FBI, the media, sexism, racism or any other ism you can think of. It was a referendum on neoliberalism. It is your legacy, Obama. It’s Clinton fatigue born of endless scandals. It’s war and prison for profit.

      5. Oh FFS. I wonder if Her realized the shit that would come Her way

      with the publication of this pathetic book? Doesn’t care about looking the fool and the complainer?

      Waa waa! But maybe it’s part of a narcissistic personality. Try to be on everyone’s mind, friend or foe. Just Be the topic! The woman’s in deep denial. Always paper mache – never the real thing. It’s like she has willed herself to be ‘great’ so hard and so long but the fact is there was never heart to back up the rhetoric. Breast-beating bullshit. Self infatuation. Delusion. Tales of future past. ..been fighting the fight for women and children since…well, before there Were women and children. I so tire of that. Desperate for acknowledgement.

      You give me a time machine and I’d go back to the fateful night when the Mr and the Mrs consummated some kind of loveless love and stop it, somehow. And I wouldn’t give a fig about the ‘Butterfly Effect’.

        73. I remember a lot of "sour grapes" and "sore loser" comments when the Dem

        primary was over. I’m sure everyone who said that is saying the same thing about Hillary now. Of course they are. They couldn’t possibly be praising her for this book, could they?

        59. They are ENCOURAGING her to do this.

        Outside of her closest circle of fawning bootlickers, the entire Dem Establishment wants her to STFU and go away. But she will never do that willingly, and they don’t dare force her out because she’s spiteful, vindictive, and she’s got 50 years worth of BLACKMAIL MATERIAL on all of them…

        This new book and speaking tour is SOLVING the Dem Party’s “unflushable Hillary” problem, and what an elegant solution it is! 

        She’s flushing herself, and she’s too clueless to notice. Eventually, when the time is right, the word will go out and everyone in her Rolodex will simultaneously stop taking her calls. Sure, she’ll still have all that damaging info…but she’ll be just another crazy old lady yelling on the street corner.

        Fucking BEAUTIFUL in its simplicity, IMO.

            85. Oh, that is magnificent! THANK YOU!

            I was young when that song was young.  Brings it all back.

            The funny part of all this is that all the boys and all the girls are all hot for Bernie (and some of us oldies are, too).  And it is the most mind-boggling phenomenon of all:  Bernie as sex symbol!  Funny old Bernie!  What a FANTASTIC model for getting old!  You just get better and better!  Maybe that’s why kids love him!  They look at him and stop feeling that typical corporate/consumer dread of getting old.  Old can be super-energetic.  Old can be super-creative.  Old can be a fresh new beginning.  Old can inspire.  Old can get things done.  Old brings wisdom and focus!  Old and young can help each other and together change everything for the better.

            And all those women who love Bernie.  It’s his sex appeal, don’t you think?  Yup.

            And that is hilarious.

          75. Gloria Steinem actually said that young women (girls?) were supporting Bernie

          because the boys were.

          I think she used the word ‘girls’ which is not feminist either.

        the literal most powerful man on this globe lures a pop-eyed 22-year-old into a blowjob–and what do the defenders of women in the workplace say?

        she must’ve been asking for it

      9. She's lost her mind

      She was hanging by a thread before but this loss has pushed her over the edge. The book demonstrates she is unable to accept responsibility, and the bizarre statements she’s made in just the first few days of the book tour show a detachment from reality.

      Does she honestly believe that women today can be told by fathers, husbands or boyfriends who they should vote for? What era is she living in? Every time she opens her mouth she makes a fool of herself. No one needs to vilify her, she’s doing fine all by herself.

        …by their mothers/wives/girlfriends to vote for the Queen?

        Well, just take a look at Sherrod Brown who wasn’t allowed to come out of the shadows to support Bernie’s MFA Bill because his wife, Connie Schultz is a Queen loyalist as well as sporting larger balls than Sherrod……..bad career move Sherrod.

      10. She really is unhinged.

      By the way, during the beginning of the Democratic Primaries, I was leaning towards O’Malley, my female best friend, the one I talk politics with the most was the one who pushed me to look in to Sanders deeper.  I initially dismissed him since I didn’t think he had a chance at all back in 2015.  I’d have been happy with any of the three primary candidates in 2015, Hillary’s campaign though was dirty, bereft of substance and she crossed multiple lines in her attacks.

      She and her supporters were the ones who went on personal attacks and innuendo.  Sanders tried to keep it on the issues.

      Granted, I agree that Sanders’ supporters went personal, and some of the attacks were unfair, but when are they going to realize that the only reason people follow Sanders is because of his sticking with issues and keeping it just there.  He has acted like a gentleman in trying to stay away from personal attacks.

      Again, where is the discussion about her paid trolls that placed porn on Sanders’ supporters social media accounts?  Where is the discussion about the only Campaign Office that has ever got shot at was Sanders’?  Then of course she went and used the Sandy Hook tragedy, and tried to paint Sanders as some heartless gun-nut.

      She’s insane.

      I just don’t get it. At some point, even the donors are going to be done with this nonsense. You cannot savagely attack and blame every single leg of your support and expect them to be there for you, even if the alternative is Trump. She and her cadre are so out of touch that it is cringe-worthy and physically painful to watch. I really wonder how these people feed/dress themselves and get though the day to day trials of Life, you know?

          I find it remarkable that a multi-tiered democratic process led specifically to the selection of two of the most singularly loathed individuals on the North American continent to vie for the office of the presidency.

            34. I also would like to see such an analysis. Clinton had to cheat to wrest

            the nomination from Sanders and if published articles are to be believed, the Clinton forces also used devious means to see that Trumbo was the Republican nominee.

            “two of the most singularly loathed individuals on the North American continent” – very well put!

                to get the Republicans to nominate Trumbo and then she found herself with lower Electoral College votes. Oh the stain, the stain.

          had to jump through hoops and write her name in and since it was imperative we got rid of the governor up for reelection, I was convinced my ballot would not have been counted so I left the president line unvoted.

      Pretty sure her boyfriend didn’t put her up to it, since she didn’t have one till a year after the election.

      23. Trying to explain away how bad her support actually was with white women.

      The women groups really thought that women would vote for Hillary because she was a woman, issues be damned. Following that same logic, all men should have voted for her opponent. It doesn’t work that way nor will it ever. I wonder if anyone interviewing her will ask about the Lolita express or the corrupt actions of the Clinton foundation?

      Say what you will about Trump (and I really can’t find much good to say about him) the country dodged a bullet by keeping this sick individual out of the White House.

        Nixon threw a few hissy fits in his career.  His moral ethics were weak, but, unlike Hillary, he was not narcissistic.  He was insecure, and kept his enemies lists, dirty tricks campaigns, and cover ups to try to keep others from knowing of his weaknesses.  He had lost big electons before and was determined not to again.  He was a very intelligent man with serious character flaws.

        Hillary, on the other hand, has no doubt that SHE (Her) is the best, the brightest, the gift, and the Visionary — How could anyone fail to understand her awesomeness?  She lacks imagination and empathy.  She lacks the self awateness for self examination.

        I don’t know if Nixon learned and grew from Watergate and all that followed.  But he did admit that he had done wrong.  He did not blame his humiliation on others and sort of apologized.  When Hillary can do that, I’ll reacess my compare and contrast of the two.

      29. Perhaps young people (women and men) vote more often FOR someone rather

      than against Trump or against you or against immigrants or against gays or against minorities, etc.

      The older we get the more politicians can play effectively to our FEARS – of losing what little we have, of others (however you define them), of change (“the ‘good ol’ days were better” is what my parents and grandparents told me; now I find myself saying the same).

      Young people (back when I was one and now) are less focused on FEAR than they are on how to make things better. Hillary, you obviously have never figured that out.

      32. This is just getting sad..

      It’s just become scorched earth now, what is there to gain??.. she’s joined her most fervent sycophants on the internet & the twitts.. her loyal cult has turned her into a parody of themselves..

      Fortunately for her & her hubby they have a large enough following to live confortably forever more, tapping into that pain whenever a contribution is needed..

      39. Who is 'Sheryl'? I didn't see this interview, but text above attributes words to

      Sheryl, not Hillary. I understand the animosity towards Clinton, but if I’m reading the OP correctly – Hillary didn’t say these things.

        41. She was paraphrasing Sheryl Sandburg….

        ….followed by Hillary agreeing with this notion by adding ” and we saw a lot of that during the primaries from Sanders supporters”

        She didn’t say that was ridiculous…..she agreed with Sheryl’s perspective by saying they saw a lot of that during the primaries……

         

        But as I point out in the book — and I think that chapter I wrote on being a woman in politics really will be of interest to a lot of women and men. I talk about a conversation I had with Sheryl Sandberg, who has really helped to put into perspective a lot of research that supports common experiences. And she said, look, the research is absolutely definitive. The more professionally successful a man is, the more likable he is; the more professionally successful a woman is, the less likable she is. And that when women are serving on behalf of someone else, as I was when I was Secretary of State, for example, they are seen favorably. But when they step into the arena and say, wait a minute I think I could do the job, I would like to have that opportunity, their favorabilities goes down. And Sheryl ended this really sobering conversation by saying that women will have no empathy for you, because they will be under tremendous pressure — and I’m talking principally about white women — they will be under tremendous pressure from fathers and husbands and boyfriends and male employers not to vote for “the girl.” And we saw a lot of that during the primaries from Sanders supporters, really quite vile attacks online against women who spoke out for me, as I say, one of my biggest support groups, Pantsuit Nation, literally had to become a private site because there was so much sexism directed their way.

          43. thanks

          was just reading the transcript. Worse than I thought it would be. Who does that? So high school. ‘My friend says he was mean to me” and that made me feel better so I’m gonna make up some shit to prove that I’m right, oops, she’s right. She said it – not me!

          Anyways, it doesn’t matter ’cause she won! don’tch know? later in transcript:

           

          Q:Why would it have ever gotten to the point where something like the Comey letter could have shifted so many opinions? Why was it ever that tenuous? I mean, you say in the book, “American elections are about change, or they’re about the future, or some combination thereof.” And for many people you are about neither. Did your candidacy have an irreparable flaw from the beginning?

          A: I don’t think so. When you win the popular vote by three million votes, and when there were all of these outside forces coming at me right until the very end, I don’t think you can say that we didn’t have a strong campaign. I’m proud of the campaign we ran. We had an incredible organization. We had more people working on the ground in states like Wisconsin and Michigan.”

            49. They bought into Sheryl's perspective because it fit the Queen's narrative…

            ….On the campaign trail, Gloria Steinem and Madame Albright made reference to girls supporting Bernie because the boys are with Bernie……implying the girls weren’t there to support Bernie but for the boys…….the Queen’s campaign was laying down a foundation to paint the Bernie camp and his supporters as sexist or misogynist….

             

            And, when you’re young, you’re thinking, where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie…”

      47. Doesn't that comment in and of itself imply

      That women are so weak minded that they followed the guidance from their male counterparts?

      Or maybe it’s a casual suggestion that they were threatened by the men near them.

      She’s loony, and I don’t say that lightly.

      52. That argument is astoundingly, totally anti-Feminist. It is incredible.

      Which once again proves what an absolute phony Hillary Clinton really is.

      If women are so easily manipulated by the men in their lives, how can you argue that women are strong enough to hold positions of power? It’s a fundamental contradiction which of course will totally escape the notice of the “feminist” Hillbot brigades.

      Sheryl and Hillary are WRONG (and cynical about women). Women don’t vote a certain way due to male pressure. And men don’t vote based on female pressure. And they have the nerve to complain about sexism when their attack here is anti-women.
