I agree with it.

If they had taken a unbiased poll of the public they would have realized how much she was disliked and that they need a more electable candidate.

But they got into their euphoria of Madame President that they not only not do it, but also actively undermined the campaign of Bernie Sanders.

Even though his economic policy may not be in my best interest I would have voted for him rather than Johnson. Or even O'Malley. But no, the democrats fixed their system and pushed Hillary down our throats. So now they are angry at everyone for Trump getting elected.

Stupid, tone-deaf DNC didn't realize that most people don't like HRC. Even Democrats, and certainly not the Bernie ( left ) wing of the party.

We could have had Kasich ( a practical moderate ) or Bernie ( a real man of the people ) but noooooo, we ended up with bad and worse. Ugh.

Do NOT forget to vote in the primaries, people! It matters. This could have all been prevented.

Maybe. I do admit it would have been interesting to watch Hillary and JEB go after each other.

Yeah, a real "man of the people" who just bought his third personal residence, a $600,000 lakefront vacation home.
