She's gone toe to toe with the Republicans for decades and has beaten them every time. She knew that even so it wasn't going to be a coronation, but it's hard to not get a little excited by the fact that the GOP is stupid enough to go with the Tangerine Nightmare.
Hillary has been pushed as future President by the media since 2000 when she ran for New York senator. The media tried the same thing on the GOP side, attempting to coronate Jeb Bush. However, the GOP primary electorate went a different route. Then again, the GOP primary system is a little more fair being that they don't have super-delegates that vote how they want regardless of how the people vote.

I think Bill's legacy as a successful President works in Hillary's favor, especially since she took a larger role in Bill's presidency than most first ladies typically do. If it wasn't for that, I don't think she would have much a shot on her own merit.

She is one strong person to put up with the constant smear campaigns from the Republicans.

She's been favored to win the presidency all along and she's still ahead in the polls, even with the email scandal.

The GOP thought they would win the election by smearing Hillary. Instead, the GOP handed the election to Hillary when they elected Trump. Now the GOP is going to lose to Senate and possibly the House, especially since they are still focused on smearing Hillary. In the mean time they have modern day Hitler as a candidate and he can't even get along with people in his own party.

And I'm sure you voted for Obama twice. At least you're consistent voting against common sense. But you are dreaming if you think the dem's take back the senate. That ain't gonna happen, not this election.


And drop the Hitler crap. Try to come on here and post like an educated, thinking adult.

She was forced on the Democrats. I think it was agreed upon in 2008 that if she supported Obama that she would get her turn thus why so few showed up to run against her. Everyone needs to realize that she would do anything, nothing is off the table for her and I am sure she has a list of "blackmail topics" on many, many individuals. She scares them!

Say what you will, but it is quite obvious you were NEVER a Republican..
It is quite possible Felony Clinton is even a worse candidate than corrupt, Muslim obama..
...and if Felony Clinton had never been born, Bernie Sanders would still never have had a chance, he is a socialist and therefore would have never been elected... Honest man, yes, but total fruitcake..
and you like these people? You were never a Republican... Republicans are much smarter than that...
President Trump, 2016, will see to it that Felony Clinton spends the rest of her evil days in prison...

I loved Bill as our President, so what he did on a personal level behind closed doors was none of mine or the Country's business. No different then what I or my neighbor does behind close doors. I'm sure the White house has seen plenty of action over the years.

After seeing Hillary withstand all that and still become a Senator and SOS, I have seen how great she can handle the nonsense the Rs dish out. She is one strong lady in my opinion. As long as the Rs want to keep us women in backroom allies if we aren't ready for a child, force prayer in schools, aren't for gun control, climate change etc. etc., I can "NEVER" vote for your side again. What you put up this year as a choice is a joke, you really think this bigoted clown should run this country? You should be outraged at what he said about John Mc Cain and making fun of a cripple in a wheelchair!!!

I have watched all the votes over the last 8 years too, and you have earned the name party of no. You don't want to make this country better, you want to tear it down. And make no mistake, we will never forget as much as you'd like us too, that is was Bush sitting in that classroom for 7 minutes on 9/11. He was the one that got us into this war we are still fighting. I don't blame one senator that voted yes, because they based their decision on a "LIE" so you can keep asking "when we will stop blameing Bush", never, that's when.

To us on the other side it feels like hate hate hate all the time coming from your side. So yes I am very glad she is running and is a great choice. My R friend in Florida who voted for Jeb in the primaries feels the same way and will be voting for her in the general. Her words "there is no choice on the other side" and she is very qualified.

Debbie....
Yes you support Felony Clinton, but then you are an admitted Taterhead... It makes perfect sense..

Superdelegates haven't changed the results of what the elected delegates decided. And if the Dems had winner takes all primaries like many of the GOP ones were, Hillary would have won by a huge landslide.

The sour grapes here are just silly. Face it folks, Clinton has outlasted, outfought, outorganized and outsmarted the competition. She's been battle tested from a cottage industry dedicated to taking down and throwing trash at Bill and her, and she's still standing.
