My thought is, once Clinton gets what she's wanted all her life, the goal (presidency), she'll have nothing to lose if she just forget about what she promised publicly, in order to fulfill what she promised privately/secretly.

And you can easily click on those candidates and see exactly who gave the money. The amounts from Wall Street, especially the TBTF banks are staggaring for both JEB & Hillary.

That first link is amazing. It's just a waterfall of money pouring into these campaigns. And it's still early in the election cycle.

I wonder how favors are calculated...you can borrow my plane, you can borrow my staff, you can stay at my mansion.

Not really. Sure there are liberal billionaires, but they're not the majority.

I don't think it's hypocritical at all for Hillary Clinton to take donations from Wall Street.

One of my favorite lines from "The West Wing" was when Alan Alda said:

"If you can't drink their booze, take their money and then vote against them, you don't belong in this business."

In other words, what Hillary said in the debate was true. Just because Pres Obama took donations from Wall St doesn't mean he supported its causes. In fact, it's very common for companies to donate to both parties.

Do you think your candidate (Trump) is going to fulfill all his? Deporting 11 million people? Building a great wall like the one in China that he doesn't know was built by slaves? Fabulous healthcare for ALL and the government is going to pay for it?

Let's get real.

Look at your own glass house.

Trump has spent his entire life gaming the system. He has admitted many times that he plays to the fantasies of people.

"All of you can be me. I'll make it happen!" Except that most of us didn't inherit a real estate empire.

Except of course that is exactly what Obama did. Hillary, yet again, speaks 1/2 truths.

Obama voted for the bailouts as Senator and as President his Justice Department and his lackey Eric Holder failed to hold ANY criminal investigations against anyone in the finance industry. This where there were obvious and blatant examples of fraud and law breaking.

How anyone can support people like this is beyond me.
