    Aside from failing miserably at her job and getting people killed, exactly what has she accomplished in those 8 years? Are you that much of a liberal shill? Same with Bernie, 30 years of nothing, but this is the year he'll get things done. The Repubs got no one either, we're all fucked, but let's not pretend Billary is anything but a stuffed suit with kanckles.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.

    Oh stop it. You can debate the results of her respective tenures all you want. But that's not what I was disagreeing with. Personally, I think she is unelectable, or nearly so, and would be a poor choice regardless. But that's not the point.

    The issue is your choice of words...namely that service in these capacities does not count toward the knowledge and experience necessary for the position...you know...qualifications.

    Nobody is qualified to be president, least of all anyone who's arrogant enough to think he/she is...You have to know everything about everything.

    The success. (or failure) of an administration, depends on how good it is at hiring advisers, and how good it is at taking advice.

    Her experience only counts if she were successful in anything she did, but that is not the case with Hillary. She's tanking anyway, so it will come down to an old white man. Not exactly the party of inclusion the Dems want us to think they still are. A tired old man from an inconsequential state that has zero to show for his 28 years in Congress.

    Failure can be a great teacher. Compare her 2008 campaign to this one. Wouldn't say she can't learn from her mistakes. I'll leave you with the rest of your statement unaddressed...only to say that I agree with part of it.

    But I like Pete's takeaway better anyway.

    Let me ask you a question; If you owned a company and one of your employees really sucked at all facets of what they did, would you promote them? Would you let them run the company?

    I agree and failure has always been my personal greatest teacher. But she hasn't demonstrated she has changed paths after failures.

    What did she really learn from 2008. In 08 the party rallied around a young black articulate personality. Hillary was broadsided. This time around the establishment is trying hard to quell opposition. Saturday night debates, highly scripted press engagements, a press core that is trying hard to protect her. She's the same person. I doubt she has changed one thing. Let's look at her tenure as Secretary of State. 6 years as the lead foreign diplomat for our country. What notable achievement can we point to. She's pretty much responsible for the debacle in Libya. The big reset button with Russia was a big failure. Her only reason for being the presumptive nominee is that she's a woman. Sorry she's a contemptible person who belongs out of politics and yet she is celebrated by the democrats. Amazing

    Re: republican nominee

    i don't really like any of the candidates. i want to pull some social security reform on you old assholes. i'd also like to see an aggressively progressive federal income tax.

    but just to demonstrate how easy it is to discredit a candidate on neff. check it out, watch this >>

    the republicans are unqualified to be president. they've screwed up everything they tried to do. they've never even accomplished anything.

    TOTAL BURN.
