Clinton was not popular among Democrats. She was however far preferable to Trump. She of course won the popular vote and would likely have prevailed without Comey and his last minute bomb. The loss was by the thinnest margin one could imagine.

The right wing smear was effective but could not have carried the day without Comey.

Well, now the Trump is President, perhaps he can lock her up! He felt sorry for her but wait til he finds out Hillary sold her soul to the Russians... for a certain amount of money!

So that makes it OK for Trump to collude with the Russians?!

What "hack"? How do you "hack" paper ballots?

Russia OWNED Hillary. Who in their right mind--there IS a question there--thinks Ivan would prefer a patriot to a traitor as POTUS?

Hillary supporters just simply cannot fathom that Hillary was a poor candidate that was mean and out of touch with America. Most of the country is glad Hillary list but those that fawn over her lack of ethics cannot understand how she lost so bad on her own. Its called denial.
You miss the threat.
Next time, it could be the Republicans as a target. Or the Libertarians, or whoever. The Russian objective was to keep the US as stirred up as possible. Disarray is their friend in many ways; when our vigilance quits, it makes it all the easier for Putin to re-establish the old Iron Curtain empire, re-fashioned to fit the 21st century.

That's what he wants the most. We hand it to him on a platter when we are busy fighting among ourselves. The way to get us fighting with each other is to spread some phony stories around that are sure to get a lot of us riled up.
Cheap, quick and easy for as long as we fall for it.

Did the voices in your head tell you that?
Or are you the only one with the evidence?

There were plenty of Democrats that didn't vote for Hillary, why not blame them? They voted for Trump, independent, or stayed home.

Hillary lost because of her own doing. In fact, if you strip away all of the polls that the media spent the better part of a year shoving down our throats, her losing isn't all that surprising. Her personal and professional baggage mixed with being Obama's third-term and not really taking a position on things Americans care about made her a dud as a candidate. For all the talk of Trump colluding with Russia, I haven't heard anyone say they didn't vote for Hillary Because WikiLeaks.

She got more votes than Trump. Fact of life. He will always be a minority President.

She was not an exceptional candidate and the Democrats could certainly have done better. But she was more than good enough if Comey had simply done what was required of him and otherwise kept his mouth shut.

And Obama should have fired Comey after the July debacle. So Obama owns a piece of the Clinton loss.

Plus those 10-15% undecided people either decided not to vote in election or voted for either Trump, Johnson or Stein.




Enough people knew that Hillary's Email scandal was something with or without Comey.


She was her own worse detractor.
