@Blickers,
We know which states are predominantly racial bigots and no brains. Trump has no record of having done good for anyone but himself. Clinton has history behind her as Bill Clinton outlined yesterday at the convention. Hillary is for all the people. Trump is for himself.

@Real Music,
Yes and better yet the assasination of the former Party Chairwoman was accomplished without any nasty discussion of the collusion of the DNC with its favored candidate or any speculation abou the very likely hacking of the annointed queen's e mail acccounts while she was Secretary of State.

Now you can go back to trashing the stubborn Sanders supporters.

I support Bernie Sanders. I support Hillary Clinton. I support Barak Obama. I support Elizabeth Warren. I support Nancy Pelosi. Most important, I support the Democratic Party.

@Real Music,
After hearing Bill Clinton yesterday about what Hillary has done for the American People, I'm in full support of her. Donald Trump is in it for himself; he's a narcissist, a racial bigot, and a xenophobe.

I agree with you completely. That sums up the whole election.

How does it feel to become more informed? I can only guess it sucks to see some or should I say most of your love ones who are unable to see the reality you see for different reasons that affect them.

Is it similar to being close to heaven and yet seeing your love ones going against their own interest? If so I have been there as well.

Poor Bernie! He should remember that Clinton will probably run for only one term and that he could probably run and win, if he desires.

@Miller,
Actually, Bernie would be 74 if he took office in January, which is pretty borderline in my opinion. If he waited four years, he'd be 78. Not a good idea.

Just an observation, but most leaders seem to be right at or near their peak right up through their early seventies. After that, often by their own admission, they don't have the full mental capacity to do what they used to. Although many appear quite sharp to others, often these people choose to slow down and take fewer responsibilities, if they don't retire outright.

I do agree with you that I hope that Hillary, if elected, chooses only to serve one term. She'll be 73 at the end of the first term, which is right on the borderline of where people's mental acuity starts slowing down.

By 2024, there'll be no MEDICARE and SS will be vastly depleted. You should still run for President. At least the HEALTH CARE you'll receive will be free.

@Blickers,
I hope that is not true, my dad is getting close to 75, we all, the whole extended family, depend on him a lot for advice and encouragement, or even if you are lost in an unknown city, we call to get back on track. (Odd fact, in the bathroom and other times he would study the Atlas for relaxation so...) Anyway, just hoping you are not right.

If you are correct, I wonder if she would be grooming Kaine to run after her first term?

@revelette2,
When I said not at the top of mental acuity past mid seventies, I meant things like reduction of the number of things you can keep in mind and working on at once. You can't multi-task like you used to. And many people over 75 are still working, but the job doesn't involve having to have five separate conversations at once. People I know who are perfectly fine and doing great have told me this, they have to lessen the amount they can keep up with but once they do that, they are very near the same ability that they had.

@Blickers,
I'm glad to see you qualify your statement. It did have a slight whiff of ageism about it, to me. I know we have to make common-sense adjustments as we age (my mother was allowed to drive for about 7 years longer than it was safe for others encountering her on the highway). But there are so many variables. There are abysmally incompetent, shallow and amoral people who are young and strong. There are physically decrepit people who are wise and trustworthy and substantial.

In the four polls released Monday on Real Clear Politics, which take in the reaction to the Democratic National Convention, in one on one matchups Clinton vs Trump, Hillary leads by an average of 6.5 points.

In the same four polls, when they include Johnson and Stein as choices, Hillary leads by 5.5 points.

Hillary Clinton is moving up fast on her way to the White House. Trump is falling out of the race.

@Blickers,
This is two hours old: In a two-way head-to-head matchup, Clinton tops Trump 52% to 43%, and in a four-way matchup including third party candidates Gary Johnson and Jill Stein, Clinton leads 45% to 37% with Johnson at 9% and Stein at 5%.

@cicerone imposter,
Excellent, CI. Just goes to show how all the polls are going Hillary's way-or maybe all away from Trump, depending on what you think the motivation is.
