130 Thoughts to “Hillary Clinton – 2016 Presidential Candidate”

  1. Mary

    Is Hillary racist? When bringing up issues about Martin Luther King JR you are automatically setting yourself up to be looked at as a racist. How smart is it for Hillary, who is in an election against a black man to even bring up MLK? It seems to me it was a political tactic to once again have voters stray away from the real issues. The question is not if Hillary is racist, but really what relevant issue does she want us to avoid?

     
  2. Carl

    How can you say this about our next president? No other candidate has the integrity of Hillary Clinton! Who do you think ran the country during Bill’s 4 years? Without Hillary, Bill wouldn’t have had a shot. Mrs. Clinton has no need to resort to petty tactics and you are foolish to think so!

     
  3. DrV

    Senator Clinton’s efforts to get all Americans universal health care should be commended.

    The UK, France, Cuba and other countries have already provided universal health care for their citizens, why can we?

     
  4. Tina

    Why would anyone put a Clinton in office? So much of our reputation was ruined with all, of the scandal during the Bill Years. He was an embarrassment to our nation! That’s when the world stared to laugh at us. We need someone with integrity in office! not who reminds us of humiliation!

    Kudos to Clinton for fighting in senate to reduce ax cuts to business owners who take their business out of the country! We are so sick of losing our factory jobs! We need the money! The poverty level is at an all time high! With Mrs. Clinton in power I can see a future for this country!

     
  6. The world was laughing at us because clinton got a bj? I didn’t know that, if that’s the case they must be rolling over laughing at how we invaded Iraq over 9-11.
    not a clinton fan by far, i just thought your comment had no substance.

     
  7. WDHARSAN

    Kudos to Senator for Clinton for standing strong and taking Ohio! This is the year of the woman! Stop the infighting and plan the dream ticket! Clinton and Obama together is the future of America!

     
  8. tim

    That is not a dream ticket! How can they beat each other down and then say the want to work together? The ideal running mate is John Edwards. His fight against poverty is what our country needs

     
  9. andy

    As a Commander in Chief Hillary would be a ridiculous choice. Spending one day entertaining the truth does not qualify you to lead them. We also live in a world that does not respect women as leaders. What if we are at war with one of those countries…such as right now! How can Hillary lead us out of war if she is not respected as a leader? McCain has the experience this country needs!

     
  10. Stacy

    Geraldine Ferrara is not a racist. In this sensitive time that we live in her words about Obama were taken to heart when it was merely just a statement. Furthermore, it was shameful for Senator Clinton to denounce Geraldine and have her step down from the campaign. That shows a lack of integrity on the part of senator Clinton as she could not stand up for someone who clearly deserves it. This shows her weak attempt to hold on to her campaign and exposes her as the weak leader she would be if she became our next president. After this latest turn of events I strongly feel Obama should be the Democratic nominee.

     
  11. Vino

    Hillary is the woman for the job. She is what our country needs to finally make a change! It takes a good woman to do a strong man’s job and Hillary is that woman!

     
  12. Stacy

    For the sake of the Democratic party it is time for Hillary to submit to defeat. We need to stop focusing on who are candidate is going to be and start focusing on how to win the presidency. Every punch thrown Obama has been able to duck and in viewer polls on nbc news people trust him to run the country more than they trust HIllary. He is also ahead in super delegates. Hillary, if you really care about this country like you say you do, swallow your pride, and do what is best!

     
  13. mbeharry

    The main thing that worries me is her relationship to health care corporations. Early in her husbands presidency she was against evil health insurance companies. Who, it seems, send people to their deaths over minor costs, and definitely over major costs. In fact, health insurance companies have been allowed to run free without any boundaries. I hope she can get us cost effective universal health care if she wins

     
  14. Sammy

    Hillary just won Penn and is now in i for the long hall. I agree with Stacy that this hurts the Dem. party and ruins our chances to win the big office! Barak and HIllary need to think about what is best for our country and start putting it ahead of their own personal egos! More importantly as Michael Moore states on his blog HIllary needs to stop with her “scare tactics” to white people. Someone who stoops to this level cannot have the moral sense to run our country. Sen. Obama is the man for change!

     
  15. trinidee

    hillary is trying anything she can to bring down obama. anything that pops up she tries to inflame and attack his credibility with. while he seems to be trying to take the higher road. i think he should be fighting back more!

     
  16. Tyler

    Senator Clinton has yet to voice a strong stance on how she will help our environment, I have hear her speak about the war, taxes, and even immigration reform but I worry that she does not take the environment as seriously as the other issues our country is facing. This makes me wonder if she is the right candidate to head up the Democratic party!

     
  17. Stacy

    I am not sure if it is a calculated move by the Dem party but by keeping Hillary in the race they have dominated the news. People don’t even here about John McCain. This is a smart tactic as when Obama does get they nomination, he may get more votes because people won’t remember what McCain stands for.

     
  18. Logan

    Whatever the reason i is pointless to waste even more money that could go into helping people to continue to fight a losing battle.

     
  19. Stacy B

    why would quoting from the Assoc. Press make you racist. Americans need to calm down with jumping on racial and sexism high horses every time comments are mentioned. It is not racist to quote text.

     
  20. Emma

    I admire Hillary for still hanging on, however she needs to withdraw now and strongly support Obama Obama needs all the help in order to beat McCain. We do not need another Bush & Cheney in the White house……….McCain is too old & a warmonger (not to mention his plastic looking wife) MCain is so superficial, because he was a war hero, does not make him fit to be president. There are many many war heroes out there who experienced more horrors than he did. MCain has been in the Senate for over 20 years, what has he done for Arizona? nothing!!! he is the usual ‘old’ politician with nothing but tricks up his sleeves.

     
  21. Yoni

    Winning yet another popular vote is just delaying the inevitable! Concede Hillary Concede!

     
  22. Tim

    Enough Senator Clinton! This is ridiculous! Its time to drop out! Enough is enough! You are holding n to something already out of your reach and that separates not unites the party. If you want to do something for this country concede with grace!

     
  23. Alora

    Hillary you show strength and are a symbol of pride for every woman. You make it possible for us to dream

     
  24. lin8644

    John Edwards got knocked off his high horse and now its time for Obama. Then everyone will know what we have all along that Hillary was the only democratic candidate with integrity!!!

     
  25. Zoey

    I hope Hillary steals the show from Obama next week at the Democratic convention!!!

  30. It’s pretty amazing that she is now secretary of state. She held a tight campaign and I think she did a great job.

     
  31. It was shameful for Senator Clinton to denounce Geraldine and have her step down from the campaign. That shows a lack of integrity on the part of senator Clinton as she could not stand up for someone who clearly deserves it.

     
  32. margmorg

    I say we change the Congress perks and vote out everyone, Dem. or Rep. who has had two terms or more; then keep doing it till we get a few honest people there.

     
  33. Joseph

    Words that come to mind when I think of Hillary; greedy, caniving, backstabing, arrogant, angry, two faced, power hungry, pontificating, wind bag. Did I mention self centered and egotistical?

     
  34. Hildyross

    It seems that Hilary’s latest faux pas is charging exorbitant rates for her speaking engagements. And while I must agree that 225,000 dollars is excessive for a one hour speech, she has every right to charge whatever she thinks the traffic will bear. Apparently UNLV students are protesting this large charge because they feel their tuition is already too high. They want Clinton to donate her fee back to the students to be used for scholarships and other funding.
    I think they’re barking up the wrong tree. Seems to me they should be protesting the university’s decision to hire such an expensive speaker in the first place. So far Hilary is ignoring the students requests.

     
  35. Charleygree

    I am constantly amazed at how much power Hilary Clinton wields. Of course Secretary of State is a heavyweight position, but it seems even more so in Clinton’s hands. It was actually she – or her department – who vetted the keystone pipeline project. On her advice president Obama rejected the proposal. Many blame it on Warren Buffet’s opposition and significant Obama campaign donations, but I don’t think even rich Warren has that much clout. It was Hilary all the way. Look out America; she really wants to be commander in chief.

     
  36. gladys

    I believe she is a goal getter and determined and as secretary of states she is doing ok. Let her try her luck running for the presidency.

     
  37. I feel the Clinton’s helped set up the nation to handle a more open idea of running america which gave way to a black president. So now it’s a woman’s turn because if you think about what really has a man accomplished being president? Good luck Hillary with the p**** swinging contest.

     
  38. Warren

    I think Hillary’s new stance bodes well for this year’s campaign. Before she was isolated in her mansion, talking about lofty issues, but her new commercial really makes her a much more accessible candidate. Check out the difference on YouTube!

     
  39. Trent

    I’ve always respected Hilary’s ideas on how to address abortion. The idea of making adoption a more attractive solution really cuts through all the moral nonsense.

     
  40. bonzer

    I personally feel that US had better economic situation and prosperity when President Bill Clinton was ruling. US on a whole was doing well and there were more jobs and better affordability. US being the giant among all economies, had a cascading effect on all other countries and there was a general feel-good factor all around. (Now, stop making ruckus on Clinton’s sex scandals).

    I think, Hillary has proved enough, that she is really capable of defusing potentially volatile scenarios worldwide all over the world and amply demonstrated her diplomatic abilities. Secondly, she has a husband who can share his administrative wisdom. I think Hillary runs a genuine chance of sweeping the polls this time.

     
  41. Vawter

    I have a lot of respect for Hillary. I think she will do well as president and really come into her own doing so. We shall see.

     
  42. Del

    Well she’s the wife of Bill Clinton, so I’m sure she learned a thing or two about handling the role of presidency. I don’t know if she will be good or bad, but it would definitely be interesting to see how a woman would rule & run the US. Maybe it’s a change that been long needed. She will have to prove herself no doubt.

     
  43. xavier

    Awesome, another totally corrupt political insider running for president! No big deal, when she wins it’ll just be another decade of American politics totally ruined. Don’t look into what her and old Billy did in Mena nothin to see there folks just move along.

     
  44. Brynjar D

    I think as the heat turns up and when the mud slinging truly begins, she will be in for a lot of flak for her erased emails this time. She was also caught lying wholesale last time when she said she was under sniper fire in Bosnia. I have strong reservations about this woman becoming the next commander-in-chief.

     
  45. Salami

    I won’t vote for her. I don’t think she stands for populist policy measures. I think she is for the rich like most in Washington these days.

    I also think she made a bad choice to join with the Obama administration.

     
  46. Diane Lane

    I have no interest in seeing Hillary become our next President. I didn’t trust her to secure our interests as Secretary of State, and I wouldn’t trust her to do so as President. I’d much rather see someone who actually understands the meaning of the word poverty in office, who has worked his or her way up, than this poser.

     
  47. michwest14

    I definitely would not like to see Hillary become our next president. If you look into her past you can see that she changes her views on every subject to what is currently popular. Not to mention she is a huge imperialist. Bernie Sanders is who I’m hoping will get the democrat vote. However if it came down to Hillary or any of the republicans running, I would definitely vote for Hillary.

     
  48. michaelrydell

    Don’t know how this email issue is going to play out, but it is possible her 2016 presidential campaign may not recover. If by chance she does get the Democratic nomination, I would think maybe Sanders may get picked as her Vice President because of his growing popularity.

     
  49. IamTheShrike

    Anybody who wants Hillary to be president has no real desire to see our political system cleaned up. They would be many of the same people who voted for Obama who promised not to play, “politics as usual” and make our system more transparent. He’s done an awful job at both of those things, and Hillary would be even worse.
    Her entire political career is one scandal after another. Please, go away, Hillary (and Bill).

     
  50. Jasmine2015

    I would not vote for Hillary for president. If she wants to be president, she must be more transparent. It doesn’t make any sense that she is getting so much heat over how she is deleting her emails. Maybe she does have something to hide, maybe she doesnt. Thought either way, she should not go around doing things that make her look suspicious. I wonder how America as a whole feels about a woman being president.

     
  51. phoenix2015

    Hillary Clinton was first lady for two terms. She was a senator. She was Secretary of State. She has campaign experience. She has a two-term former President (her husband) to privately confide in. This is an impressive resume. This is a VERY impressive resume.

    Hillary Clinton also has the benefit of making history. She would be the first female President of the United States of America. And, like I mentioned above, she has the added benefit of having a former two-term President as a husband. That would be another historical moment, having a sitting President and a former President living in the White House at the same time!

    If the Republicans plan to beat her in 2016, they need to have one heck of a strategy!

     
  52. HalfBeard

    One of the most scandalous politicians in the presidential race and in the history of American politics. Her actions are dominated by deceit and frauds like the Whitewater Scandal (not to mention Benghazi). The only reason she is invulnerable to such incriminating actions is her established stance as a political figure, as well as the fact that numerous women blindly support her for her gender.

     
  53. Esperaholon

    Who cares if she would be the first female President? If she lacks qualifications then she will be a failure – and people would gladly use that whenever another woman tried to step up for election. Just like I doubt we are gonna see another black president for years and years and years. Honestly having Obama means we probably won’t see any ethnic minorities in the Hot Seat for decades or at least until a very Caucasian looking dude with a Hispanic name steps up to the plate.

    But anyway Hilary has shown herself to be inept in terms of leadership, like when she took the helm of a group trying to push healthcare reform back in the day or more recently when she tried to stonewall investigations regarding her cell phone and emails. She is also at least somewhat vindictive and given to playing hard toward radfem rhetoric. I am not at all comfortable with that.

    I mean the first world feminist narrative has reached the point where it is actively harming male individuals (college students being expelled based on no evidence, men being arrested for sitting with their legs open, a scientist being harassed to tears over a shirt made by a female friend, etc). So having a person like Hillary say with no ironic that women at home have it harder than soldiers being shot and killed overseas is just… no. Men are not disposable, but Hillary doesn’t seem to agree with me on this. And that’s terrifying.

     
  54. Alex

    I definitely appreciate a lot of Hilary’s stances on things. I like that she supports a woman’s right to choose, but wants to make abortion uncommon by supporting adoption and foster parenting…god knows the foster care system needs support. I like that she recognizes the plight of the middle class that’s happening right now and supports civil rights. Sadly, I am not sure whether to believe her that she will continue to support these things, so will go back on these principles depending on what she thinks people need to hear. However, to me, it would be amazing for her to be the first female president of the United States. I think having a female president IS important, the same way it was important to have a black president. I don’t have a problem with white guys, but I want to see us electing people who actually know how it feels to be a minority in this country, and sympathize personally with minority issues, like Hilary and Barack.

     
  55. Esperaholon

    Except women aren’t a minority in America? As of 2010 women made up 50.8 percent of the population. In contrast blacks make up 16% of the population and white (non-hispanic) are like 68%. On top of which, just because someone is part of a group doesn’t mean they actually care about that group. Obama threw black folks under the bus with a real quickness. Telling them to take off their house shoes and get back to work – completely ignoring the very real issues affecting the employbility of African-Americans or how efforts were not being made by the executive or legislative branch toward African-American workers. Also Obama endorsed the idea that black men in particular are dead beat dads – when honestly white American fathers tend to skip as often if not more so.

    Besides which women are not oppressed because of gender in America, but because of class – recently a white officer was arrested for raping over 17 poor black women over the course of a year. And got away with it because these poor women lacked agency due to lack of wealth and upward mobility. And Hillary isn’t going to do anything about that. Like the slackavist on Tumblr she is instead going to target and screw over men for idiotic things. Already Obama has helped to disenfranchise hundreds of college age males who due to false accusations and a shoddy system have been expelled without a right to trial or legal representation. Also it’s illegal in NYC to “manspread”. The pendulum is going to swing back soon and when it does… ain’t nobody gonna have a good time.

     
  56. DancingLady

    I do not trust Hillary and never have. Honestly, she does not have a good track record. I feel like the biggest reason she has been so successful is that she is a woman from the feminist generation. I am a woman too, but I consider gender a non-issue when it comes to whether or not I want to vote for someone. Unfortunately, the older generation of feminists tend to be so bent on getting more women into office that they overlook other issues, like changing your position whenever it’s convenient. I feel that Hillary is not a good politician because she really isn’t in it because she loves her country and wants to serve her people. I feel she is in it for herself, so I can’t give her a good rating, no matter how many accomplishments she has.

     
  57. Diane Lane

    It seems I agree with many here. I have no respect whatsoever for Ms. Clinton. It seems she’s had a negative agenda from the days of Watergate, if not before, and has done whatever she could to implement it. Her hands are dirty, from the numerous associates who’ve met questionable early deaths to those she abandoned to be tortured and murdered in Benghazi. I hope the day is coming where she will be charged for her misdeeds and reap what she’s sown.

     
  58. korriken

    I just don’t see Clinton winning the presidency myself. Considering that Bernie Sanders has been kissing her backside until the last debate, even doing so far as the condemn the news on the email scandal, which is still under investigation, and is statistically tied with her, I see Sanders taking the nomination.

    On the other hand, I don’t see the DNC letting Her Most Royal Majesty fail to be nominated again.

    The scary and sad part is the USA fought Britain and formed its own nation so the people would govern themselves and we STILL managed to form a caste of nobles and royalty, to whom people are blindly loyal to, depending on party affiliation.

    American politics is like A Tale of Two Cities with less bloodshed.

     
  59. zod93

    I am really interested in Hillary’s presidential decisions.

    I feel like she shouldn’t become the POTUS , but historically it would be interesting. Of course she knows the system itself through her early years, maybe it could help her.

    Still, too much media usage, less real talk.

     
  60. Diane Lane

    I’m tired of the country being divided by gender, race, status, etc. I don’t care for candidates being pushed because they will be the first such and such. I care about the character and values of a candidate, and how much they love this country, and I am not impressed with the character of this candidate. It disgusts me that she could call someone a friend, yet abandon him in Benghazi, and apparently lose no sleep over it.

    Hillary Clinton has nothing in common with me, and doesn’t understand my struggles any better than the male candidates do, and I won’t throw away my vote because she happens to be female. She’s shown no respect or consideration for those women claiming to be sexually harassed and/or assaulted by her husband, and that tells me all I need to know about her stance on women’s rights.

     
  61. GreenEggsAndSam

    I think Hillary Clinton becoming president would not be any good for America. America is already going in the wrong direction, and Clinton would only further that. A president who is currently suspected of wrongdoing would not be fully concentrated on the job, and that would be a great liability. Furthermore, many people do not trust her judgement after the events in Benghazi.

     
  62. jaspervance

    I do not think that she is able to be the statesman her husband was, as he could bring different groups together for a common purpose. Too many people do not trust Hillary, and I think that she will be unable to build consensus between the Republican and Democratic members of the government.

     
  63. tskier01123

    I just don’t trust her. She’s always chasing the vote it seems, doesn’t have hard stance on anything. I think she’s an excellent politician, but I also think that is what’s wrong with politics, the pros. She knows a lot though and, I don’t doubt she’s super smart and a skillful operator. I just worry about her ambition and the purpose of it. I’m sure this country is ready for a female president, I’m just not sure that it’s HRC.

     
  64. JudenDell

    I’m not saying I trust Hillary Clinton, I’m also not saying that she will be a good president. But she is the best out of the current lot. The republican side is composed primarily of buffoons and charlatans. Bernie Sanders, while he means well, simply does not have the capacity or skill to lead America’s economy AND forge good relations with the rest of the world. Clinton may be slimy, but she has the panache, guts and intellect to stop America from begin ravaged by Russia and the middle east.

     
  65. After her husband raped all those women, she raped them again with the assasination of their characters. She is nothing but a pathalogical LIAR as obama is and would finish off this country with the socialist liberal democrat MOOCHER failed policies and even weakening our military even more because of her hate for them. This is the best the democrats can do? As obama, her whole life is a shame and pack of lies based on the want of power. With the liberal teachings brainwashing our children in school rewriting history on a daily basis, we need someone strong,patriotic and really loves this great country and constitution unlike the waste of airbags we have in office now!

     
  66. Utah

    Everything about Hillary is iffy. I’m not sure she’ll be fit to be president. Hopefully Bernie can top her but all that we can do now, is wait and see.

     
  67. alexanderfarabee

    I just can not understand why new polls show over half of the American population find Hillary Clinton to be untrustworthy – how then are we electing her? How is she continuing to get the African-American vote, when her and her husband are two of the greatest culprits behind private prisons, and Bill’s infamous crime bill, which have systematically kept the African American communities at a disadvantage. Personally, I can not bring myself to support her even if she does win the democratic nomination, because she is the antithesis of everything I believe needs to happen in this country. We have to get big money and corporations out of our political system, and she is the poster child for taking money from these giants who are deciding the way our country is ran instead of us.

    This is truly such an important issue in our country right now (as we see with the Panama papers, and with #DemocracySpring.

     
  68. JohnCP

    Hillary Clinton as a first lady, she helped get health care coverage for 8 million American children. Her plan to keep Wall Street accountable is the toughest of all Democratic candidates. Hillary’s New College Compact would mean students would never have to borrow to pay for tuition to attend a four-year public college in their state—and the millions of Americans who have student debt can refinance.
    Hillary also pushes that taxpayers shouldn’t pay for millionaires’ and billionaires’ kids to go to college.
    I also like the guaranteed paid family leave.

     
  69. JohnCP

    She’s also proved nobody can stand up to Republicans better than she can. She believes that raising middle-class incomes is the defining economic challenge of our time—and she has a plan to do just that. She also pushes that suspected terrorists, domestic abusers, other violent criminals, and the severely mentally ill shouldn’t be able to purchase a gun which could definitely lessen or suppress crimes.

     
  70. JohnCP

    I also want this to happen that every 4-year-old in America should be able to go to a high-quality preschool in the next 10 years. A need to invest in infrastructure and rebuild or expand our roads, bridges, rail, broadband, public transit, and water and energy infrastructure. Also protecting Americans’ right to vote—not billionaires’ and corporations’ right to buy elections.

     
  71. JohnCP

    Hillary has spent her life fighting for a fairer America. She’s been fighting for women and children her entire career—ever since she started working at the Children’s Defense Fund after law school.
    She also believes that Americans need a new and comprehensive commitment to equity and opportunity for communities of color. She’ll empower veterans and strengthen our economy and communities by connecting their unique skills to the jobs of the future.

     
  72. JohnCP

    She championed, as a Senator, the Paycheck Fairness Act and co-sponsored the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to help close the wage gap so women earn equal pay. Community college should be tuition-free for every American. She pushes that it’s time to close the Charleston loophole that lets otherwise prohibited individuals buy a gun if their background check is not complete in three days.

     
  73. JohnCP

    She negotiated a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas that ended the rain of rockets on Israel.
    We need Hillary to be president because she will crack down on companies that send profits overseas to avoid paying their fair share. She’ll defend Social Security and Medicare against Republican attacks.
    We need a president with a plan to protect the transgender community from violence.

     
  74. JohnCP

    She has a plan to act—and do everything possible under the law to protect families if Congress continues its refusal to act on comprehensive immigration reform, She knows how to find common ground to get the job done, but also how to stand her ground. Hillary is prepared to tackle all challenges, including national security.

     
  75. JohnCP

    Because every American citizen should be automatically registered to vote when they turn 18, unless they opt out. She will get it done. She has a plan to reform mandatory minimum sentencing.
    She is a small-business president that America needs.

     
  76. JohnCP

    Hillary is progressive who gets things done. Immigration enforcement must be humane and targeted—and she’ll end family detention and close private detention centers.
    She has a plan to reduce the risk of future financial crises. Because we should hold corporations and individuals on Wall Street accountable—and prosecute them when they break the law.

     
  77. JohnCP

    Hillary fought for health care for 9/11 first responders as a U.S. senator—and she’s been a vocal advocate for a permanent renewal of the Zadroga Act. It’s time to end for-profit private prisons in America.
    The Affordable Care Act is working—but you could still use a lower co-pay and deductible.

     
  78. JohnCP

    She will defend and fight to restore collective bargaining rights for workers.
    She knows historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) serve an important public mission and will make a significant commitment to them. There is a serious need to end the sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine.

     
  79. JohnCP

    Because it’s time to end conversion “therapy” for LGBT minors.
    Hillary will put a stop to Republicans’ systematic efforts to stop millions of people from voting.
    We need a president who will fight to restore the protections of the Voting Rights Act after they were gutted by the Supreme Court.

    Hillary helped negotiate the toughest sanctions Iran has ever faced.
    She’s earned the wrath of the gun lobby, Iran, pharmaceutical companies, and special interests—and that should tell you something about who she’s fighting for.
    She has a plan to invest in American manufacturing and revitalize communities that have lost manufacturing jobs.

     
  81. Lantek_

    You just can’t trust her. She flip flops on any issue she thinks will get her more votes. This includes but is not limited to the issues of gay marriage, the trans pacific partnership, and immigration. If she can change her mind on issues at the drop of the popularity hat, how do we know we can trust her? Short answer…. You can’t.

     
  82. This pathalogical LIAR has nothing but scandels and a proven total disregard of laws in her and her women abusing husband lives. If this phoney news media would vent the socialist liberal democrats as they do patriots, most of these MOOCHERS would be in jail. Yet today in the news, one of obama’s non-violent prisoners he let out just killed his girlfriend and children. Hillary wants to keep obama’s failed policies to continue and I just do not understand how there are so many people just close their eyes and vote for these unconstitutional AMERICA hating democrat politicans that have declared war on the hard working taxpayer and put the debt they have wasted on our children and grandchildren. The republican establishment is no better and it is time to get rid of ALL these “good-ol-boys that are peeing on our heads and telling us it is raining!

     
  83. Keith Ogilvie

    I really don’t think Hillary would survive in the modern era. The number of blogs, websites and independent researchers active today would result in a constant investigation into her past dealings. When Bill was in office there was nothing like the amount of independent media there is today and he was still surrounded by scandal. I would be surprised if she could last even one term in office.

    You know reading other’ comments I am thinking about that the issues are not only are with Hilary, but the system she represents too.

    There is a point where we have to stop and think about that maybe she is part of a bigger corrupt system and all her promises doesn’t matter?

     
  85. zod93

    I can only imagine what kind of stuff is she really passionate about, once she gets elected.

    It looks like for me that she is more like a part of a corrupt system, then a simple politician representing her party and it’s beliefs.

     
  86. George Edwards

    Unfortunately, to me Hillary Clinton comes across as a very opaque, non-trustworthy personality. She seems to keep flipping her stand on many important issues, has a very long history of shady deals, and has family deeply ingrained in the political system. All these factors are red flags to me. Every move of hers is politically motivated and calculated. Not getting my vote for sure.

     
  87. oportosanto

    Hillary is a Clinton who played an important role during Bill’s presidency. Also, she is a woman, that is why she is on the race. If she will make it or not I really can’t say…

     
  88. Norjak71

    I simply don’t trust her at all. She seems to be the type of person that will do anything to get a vote and lies through her teeth at every debate. She has on occasion called African Americans criminals yet then tells them that they are one of her top priorities. She claims she wants to fight wall street but then some of her biggest backs are from wall street. She is about as corrupt as they come.

     
  89. Norjak71

    She doesn’t strike me as being in touch with the American people at all. The other day she was going on about wall street and how corrupt it was but if you look at her backers they are mostly wall street. Obama is guilty of the same thing. How are we supposed to audit these people that are getting so rich when she is in there back pocket?

     
  90. oportosanto

    That’s a good remark you are making right there, she doesn’t seem in touch with the population and that happens with most of the politicians. In my opinion, that is why Obama was elected, he acted like one of us.

     
  91. Alexa

    She has been planning to run for quite a while and she knows how Congress works from being a Senator, in the Cabinet and as a former First Lady. People are disillusioned into thinking the President holds all the power. Congress does, and they vote for who they respect and believe, and it’s about allies.

    Clinton has them and she does have some groups she needs on side, but also politics is about getting elected and you need to do that before you can do anything else. She knows the game and is playing it.

     
  92. jamie haines

    The totality of Secretary Clinton’s experience is daunting. Her ability to evolve as both a politician and a person in the last forty years and her ability to withstand the constant barrage of criticism over those years without having become jaded is a testament to her character. That she thinks Americans can unite, that she sees a way forward with renewed hope, that she refuses to stoop to character assassinations is a testament to her character. That she has been a woman in a man’s world and is currently at the top of that world is a testament to her character. She has made mistakes, but has owned them. She apologizes rather than double down. There is a lot of unfounded rhetoric out there, and very few folks take the time to look at the complexity of her career. How nice we can all sit back and armchair quarterback decisions that were made by folks who at the time likely knew a lot more about the situation than we did. What I do know is that in the current climate, she is our best chance for continued progress.

    Yet again the republicans has gifted United States’s presidency to the democrats. I’m not very fond of Hillary because I can’t agree with democrats agenda. But despite having more affinity with the republican party, I refuse to endorse Donald Trump as a candidate. The guy is looking forward to enforce state’s
    protectionism and that even worse than increasing taxes and welfate’s debt.

     
  94. nytegeek

    Hilary is a force to be reckoned with, that is for sure, but I just don’t trust her. I know that they all lie to us and have hidden agendas, but I think she may be worse. She would get things done, but how many good people or good ides will she mow over to do it?

     
  95. oportosanto

    Hilary has two strong things going for her, the name Clinton and all she did during Bill’s presidency, playing the good and influential wife. She has her chances this time if she plays all the right cards.

     
  96. ToneyWatermeloney

    Nowadays it seems that when you say you don’t endorse Hillary you’re a sexist piece of s. I say to that: why? I hadn’t ‘noticed’ hey gender in the way you have. I said I didn’t endorse a person. I didn’t say I don’t endorse a person because they’re a woman. With that said, after a quick google search she seems like a pretty good candidate to me. She is for LGB rights, as well as the abortion law and seems to want to put an end to ISIS, not ignore it like I’ve seen so many other politicians do. I’m probably just ignorant here but I seriously haven’t seen a single thing pop up that would make her a bad candidate.

     
  97. Anonymous

    I personally think Hilary is trying to win based only on the fact that she is a woman, and that is just plain wrong. It makes not supporting her hard because people always just immediately assume you are sexist if you don’t yet she has offended so many people in so many ways.

     
  98. oportosanto

    No question that being a woman will bring her quite a few votes. Being a Clinton some more. But she needs to push this forward by herself as well or else she won’t make it.

  101. faintxstar

    As much as I like Hillary, I do feel like she has been avoiding a lot of crucial topics in the debate, such as how why and how she signed the racist agreements, etc back when Bill was in office. She would be the first female president, yes, but I feel like she’s lacking in so many areas that Bernie just excels in. I feel like she doesn’t care much about the people and more about just being in office, which is not a great feeling for the future president. As much as she would make a better candidate than the republican party, she is still not a very good choice for president.

     
  102. oportosanto

    That’s just how it goes, it’s all part of the strategy. Politicians just don’t around talking about every topic, some topics are deliberately avoided in order to make them look better on other areas.

    As one who supported Mrs. Clinton in 2008 with both my money and my primary vote (solely because there were only two viable candidates left after Super Tuesday, and I was not impressed by Mr. Obama), I find myself suffering severe whiplash trying to keep up with Mrs. Clinton’s current, rapid-fire U-turns on virtually every issue of importance. What with her sudden (and repeated) reversals on gun control and the coal industry to her near-constant non-apologies (which always seem to begin with the words “I misspoke…”), I almost cannot believe I ever supported her in the past. Too, I once thought her husband was the best president of my lifetime — that is, until I began to see that the perceived economic boom under his watch was short-term and illusionary, and that the full, longterm damage from NAFTA, especially, is really only being understood, and felt, two decades later. Now, Mrs. Clinton says she will haul Bill out of retirement to “revitalize the economy.” Could this get any more comical — or frightening?

     
  104. nytegeek

    I don’t really care about gender. I do think however, it is a lousy reason to factor into whether or not to vote for a candidate. Anybody that feels the need to vote for Hilary because she is a Woman she seriously examine their thinking, because it isn’t a qualification for the job either way. If you want to vote for a Woman, vote for the right Woman, not just any Woman in the lead. Most ballots have a write in option. Use it!

     
  105. oportosanto

    You might not care about gender, but the fact is that many people will vote for her by the simple reason she is a woman, many voters are as simple as that.

     
  106. tgthewriter1

    I think its good that Hillary Clinton is running for president. I still think that Clinton will lose to Trump. Trump has more business experience and he knows how to run a company. People want a businessman in the white house. They do not want a woman that is educated.

     
  107. tgthewriter1

    Hillary Clinton does not stand a chance against Donald Trump. Donald Trump has everything that America needs. America needs a business leader that knows exactly what they are doing. Donald Trump has experience making money as a businessman and running a business with efficiency.

     
  108. meganisonfire

    First off I would like to state for the record that I do not like Hilary Clinton. She is not a good person at all. I believe that this woman only care about money and not the health of this nation. She likes to use to gender card a lot which in my opinion is expected for a woman running against Donald Trump. I think that is she became president she would ruin this nation and put us into more debt then we are now. I am voting for Donald Trump and I do not care what anyone has to say about it.

     
  109. foundation

    I wish that I could support Hilary, but with all of the news about her failures with state security, her opinions about the middle East, etc… She just can’t be trusted with so much power and authority. The problem is that I still view her as a lesser evil to Trump. We’re caught between a rock and a hard place right now.

     
  110. Esquire25

    Hilary Rodman Clinton can get my vote any day of the week. She has proven herself to be a fighter that stands firm with the Republican party. Mrs. Clinton knows her stuff and will not be held down, even after the e-mail mockery she still stands strong. Mrs. Clinton is an amazing woman that is willing to battle almost any issue on behalf of the American people. Again, Hilary Rodman Clinton can get my vote any day of the week.

    Vote – Hilary Rodman Clinton, the next great President.

    Sincerely

    The fact is that now it’s just her against Trump, so I am pretty sure she will be the next President on the USA as Trump doesn’t has what it takes to be President.

     
  112. Marty

    I think Hillary has some great ideas for this country, and has the potential for improving the world’s opinion of United States politics. Unfortunately, one person can only DO so much. Take President Obama, for instance. When he first started talking about healthcare change, he meant for the United States to adopt the single payer system (or Universal healthcare) just as other first world countries have.

    But he could not make those changes by himself. By the time Congress got through with healthcare reform, we ended up with a health insurance MESS. But I don’t hear anyone pointing out that this Health Insurance system we now have was NOT what he wanted.

    Maybe Hillary can get it done, where Obama couldn’t. Maybe the American public will listen this time. Or maybe we are just incapable of learning from our mistakes.

    Personally not fond of Hillary. I haven’t followed much of the debates so i don’t know much only know what i have heard. But allowing abortions after 36 weeks should be considered murder and i don’t agree with her on passing that law which is pure ignorance.

     
  114. arunava

    Hi guys, This is Arunava and I am new to this blog. Hillary Clinton will be an amazing addition to the great history of the cultural and ethnic diversity of the USA. She served under a black president and has also travelled the third world solving different issues. And being the first ever woman to be the first citizen in 350 years!!!! oh! That’s going to be too good!

     
  115. jinkies

    As much as I would love to elect a women into the presidency, I don’t want Hillary Clinton to be that woman. Don’t get me wrong-I would elect her over Trump, but then again I would elect literally anyone short of Putin over Trump. I don’t trust her, and trust is an important character trait and requirement for me to like a candidate. Throughout the years she has flip-flopped on her views often, something that shouts “underhanded tactics” to me. I understand that people’s views change over time, but hers change in a short amount of time, frequently, in accordance to popular culture. I want a president who will stand up for what they believe in instead of going with the proverbial flow. I don’t think she’s a bad woman and I think she’d make an okay president, just not a great one.

     
  116. ally79

    Could there possibly be a worse candidate for President? I mean seriously have the American people just said “screw it, let’s see how far down the toilet we can take this country”? With the two current choices to run it that seems to be exactly what is happening. Clinton is a gun grabbing, murdering, lying moron and she belongs as far away as possible from the oval office.

     
  117. Sparks

    So our options for this election have come down to a xenophobic corporate juggernaut and a corrupt, Washington insider that’s being investigates by the FBI. After Bernie’s inability to catapult himself over Hillary, and thus the disenfranchisement of a lot of left-leaning voters, I think Hillary is going to struggle a bit to really energize her voters. Trump supporters seem to be very enthusiastic, whereas, anecdotally, I’ve been hardpressed to find Democratic voters that are thrilled with Clinton.

     
  118. Sparks

    After Bernie’s failure to clench the democratic nomination, I’m predicting there to be some disenfranchisement with the democratic voter base. Anecdotally, I don’t know too many democrats that are enthralled to vote for Hillary. It seems to a lot of turnout might be attributed to how many people want to vote AGAINST Trump, but I don’t know if that will be enough to propel her to victory.

     
  119. bonzer

    Woman or Man, that’s a crazy reason to select or unselect your President. What you need is a politically experienced and level headed person to man the highest post(alright, woman the position). Hillary does have the credentials to hold the highest post, but how capable she can be to handle the hot seat, is something that remains to be seen.

     
  120. Obreezy87

    I just don’t feel like Hillary Clinton is looking out for us. I Feel She has her own personal agenda that Doesn’t concern the american people. She seems so transparent. She Claims to have been tough on wall street when she clearly wasn’t. I Don’t Understand How she can be where she is? Every Debate I go in completely unbiased. Listening to both sides seeing if they grab my attention with the same ideals or new good ideas for the american people. Just seems Bernie sanders was Dishing out more options and what can or needs to be fixed in this country while Hillary clinton was just basically saying her vote for me i’ve got experience and a lengthy resume. So i can see her having qualifications but dose she want the job because of the glory or because she really truly cares about every individual in this country?

     
  121. My3Sons_NJ

    Hillary Clinton is probably going to win the presidency in the fall in a relative cakewalk. She has the benefit of being the most RIGHTward of the two presidential candidates given her support for Wall Street and the Top 1% in general along with her support for Free Trade deals such as the TPP, her anti-union policies and her general hawkishness on world affairs. I could easily see 20% of the Republican voters pulling the lever for Hillary this fall given her position on these issues rather than for Donald Trump who was basically a more crude and lewd version of Bernie Sanders for the first 64 years of his life. In fact, many of Trump’s positions are so close to what Sanders was proposing, I’d be surprised if there was not a significant effort at the convention to deny him the nomination of the party.

     
  122. nobody

    Hillary Clinton says some really great things. Then she says and does some really bad things. She’ll say whatever she needs to in order to get to the presidency, and do whatever the big banks funding her campaign tell her to do.

    Unfortunately, it’s beginning to look a lot like she’s going to be the best of the viable candidates at this point.

     
  123. Hades

    Does no one pay attention to the fact the Crooked Hillary has been working with the American government for more than 30 years? What good is she going to do if she gets in the White House again, just as the president of the US this time?

    All of the things that she has done, or not done has aided in the faulty economy that we live in these days. Do you notice that? Also, the system shows how they can protect who they want even when the public has witnessed broken laws by politicians.

    I don’t care about the emails, she set up a private email server which was illegal, and also mentioned that other people were doing it. That’s supposed to make it OK? She is not for the people of this nation, she is the perfect politician though. Liars, cheaters, but legally.

    It would be a major surprise to see Hillary losing to Trump. She was not my favorite as I thought Sanders would do better, but she is way better than Trump!!

     
  125. nytegeek

    I don’t care for Hillary, but it is for some of her policy stances. Most of the comments from detractors that I see here are nothing but emotion, sound bites, or propaganda. None of which make for a good solid basis of an opinion or a choice in who to vote for. I would invite people that do not want to vote for Hilary Clinton to set aside all this nonsense and evaluate the candidates based on history, policy direction, and fact instead of feeling and propaganda. You may find yourself bad mouthing your best choice and not even realize it until you become unsatisfied with your choice after the election.

     
  126. Diane Lane

    As evidenced by the FBI decision not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton, it’s obvious to many that the fix is in. Those who pull the strings behind the scenes have determined that she will be the next president, and now it’s the job of the puppets to do the voting and put her there. Many see how corrupt she is, yet apparently their opinions don’t matter.

     
  127. My3Sons_NJ

    Well, Hillary might have been better than Trump but the depth and breadth of her extreme corruption makes her unfit for the Presidency as well .. quite possible even less fit than Trump and who could have believed that until recently?

     
  128. Socialism sucks

    I hate her. She’s incompetant.

     
  129. Casey

    Her voters are ignorant and careless, idiots. Why? Because time and time again in her career in government, she has proved ineffective, untruthful, and unethical. Her being a woman doesn’t automatically mean she’ll be a great leader. Wake up, people!

    Hillary Clinton’s career in government:

    1) When she was an attorney working on the Watergate investigation, she was fired by her supervisor for “lying and unethical behavior.” Jerry Zeifman, who is a lifelong Democrat, was a supervisor for 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. When the investigation was complete, Zeifman said he fired Hillary and refused to give her a recommendation…“Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.” On his now-shuttered website, Zeifman said, “Hillary Clinton is ethically unfit to be either a senator or president — and if she were to become president, the last vestiges of the traditional moral authority of the party of Roosevelt, Truman and Johnson will be destroyed.”(Google Jerry Zeifman) 1 job #1 – Failure

    2) When Bill Clinton recaptured the governorship in 1982 he appointed his wife to head a special task force charged with reforming Arkansas’ education system, at that time widely regarded as the worst in the country. The plan Mrs. Clinton came up with showcased teacher testing and funding the schools through a sales tax increase, an astoundingly regressive proposal since it imposed new costs on the poor in a very poor state while sparing any levies on big corporations. The plan went through. Arkansas’ educational ranking remained abysmal. 2 jobs – 2 Failures.

    3) As First Lady of the United States, Bill gave Hillary another shot:
    The Clinton health care plan, known officially as the Health Security Act, was a 1993 healthcare reform package proposed by the administration of President Bill Clinton and closely associated with the chair of the task force devising the plan, First Lady of the United States Hillary Rodham Clinton.
    The plan was so wildly unpopular on all levels, it led to the Republicans simultaneously winning both the House and Senate in 1994 for the first time since 1953. 3 jobs – 3 Failures.

    4) Hillary’s first ethics problem involving White House operations was “Travelgate”. A memo written by David Watkins depicted Hillary Clinton at the center of the 1993 travel office dismissals. Watkins wrote, “We both know that there would be hell to pay” if “we failed to take swift and decisive action in conformity with the First Lady’s wishes.”
    May 19: seven White House Travel Office staffers were fired, for little apparent reason besides to make way for a company owned by Clinton’s friends (Harry Thomason and Linda Bloodworth-Thomason) from Arkansas. Prior to the removal of the previous staff — who historically would carryover from administration-to-administration — Harry Thomason accused Travel Office employees of demanding kickbacks. An accusation later proved false. 4 jobs – 4 Failures

    5) May 9, 1996, Hillary Clinton lied about coming under sniper fire as she was landing in Bosnia
    Filegate:
    This Clinton scandal involves the discovery of over 900 Republican FBI files in the White House. Files of former Secretary of State James Baker, former National Security Advisor Brent Scowcroft, and Newt Gingrich’s spokesman Tony Blankley were found to be on this list. Upon the discovery of these files, the White House issued an excuse claiming that the files were mistakenly requested by a White House employee working with an outdated list. They were called a simple “snafu.” Investigations into Filegate revealed that not a common White House worker but the President’s friend and close advisor, Anthony Marceca, had requested the files. When the presidency starts illegally compiling an enemies list it is a sure sign he is not fit to serve office and that, just maybe, a crime has been committed. Craig Livingstone, director of the White House’s Office of Personnel Security, had improperly requested, and received from the FBI in 1993 and 1994, background reports without asking permission of the subject individuals. Livingstone seemed to lack qualifications for even this position; he had worked on a number of Democratic Party campaigns and transitions, including being an advance man for the Clinton-Gore 1992 campaign,[3] and his only prior job in the “security” field was that of a local bar bouncer at a Washington, D.C., night club .An FBI document suggested that Livingstone had been given his position because First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton was a friend of Livingstone’s mother and recommended him. In 1999, Clinton gave a sworn statement that she had nothing to do with Livingstone’s hiring.[8] Livingstone also stated under oath there was no truth to the supposed hiring relationship.[8] Hillary Clinton would later refer to the whole files matter as a “pseudo scandal” while we won’t classify Hillary’s involvement here as a job, she certainly did nothing to make a situation better, and it’s rather obvious she helped make it worse.

    U.S. Senator from New York: Senator Clinton voted against the two major tax cuts packages introduced by President Bush, the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 and the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003, saying it was fiscally irresponsible to reopen the budget deficit. At the 2000 Democratic National Convention, Clinton had called for maintaining a budget surplus to pay down the national debt for future generations. At a fundraiser in 2004, she told a crowd of financial donors that “Many of you are well enough off that … the tax cuts may have helped you” but that “We’re saying that for America to get back on track, we’re probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”
    The truth is that Mr. Bush’s deficits were the product of spending, not tax cuts. Ms. Clinton either did not understand economics, or chose to stick to a party line which she knew was incorrect.

    By 2003, Bush cut the dividend and capital gains rates to 15 percent each, and the economy responded. In two years, stocks rose 20 percent. In three years, $15 trillion of new wealth was created. The U.S. economy added 8 million new jobs from mid-2003 to early 2007, and the median household increased its wealth by $20,000 in real terms.

    But the real jolt for tax-cutting opponents was that the 03 Bush tax cuts also generated a massive increase in federal tax receipts. From 2004 to 2007, federal tax revenues increased by $785 billion, the largest four-year increase in American history. According to the Treasury Department, individual and corporate income tax receipts were up 40 percent in the three years following the Bush tax cuts. And (bonus) the rich paid an even higher percentage of the total tax burden than they had at any time in at least the previous 40 years. This was news to the New York Times, whose astonished editorial board could only describe the gains as a “surprise windfall.” (That the New York Times understood economics no better than Mrs. Clinton is no surprise. Perhaps we should even give Mrs. Clinton some slack if she “learned” any of her economic beliefs from articles in the New York Times, for example, Times contributor/economist Paul Krugman, who recently suggested we can eliminate out debt to China simply by minting a trillion dollar coin. ) Unfortunately, Mr. Bush allowed Congress to spend away those additional tax revenues on matters concerning the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, immigration, etc., Mrs. Clinton basically voted along party lines. She was neither sponsor nor co-sponsor to any major legislation passed during her 2 terms in the Senate.I see no reason to label her Senate career as a failure, but unless I’m missing something, it seems just like the vast majority of other Senators’ careers…mediocre. Certainly nothing so remarkable as to deserve potential presidential adulation.
    5 jobs – 4 Failures 1 wash.
    As Secretary of State:
    – “Re-Set” button with Russia – How’d THAT work out? – Failure
    – “Arab Spring ” – ditto – failure
    – Benghazi: it has become apparent that she knew it was terrorist attack while it was happening, yet STILL publicly spoke about the ” video” as the cause for weeks. Supposedly was too distraught to go on the Sunday Morning talk shows the following week, so Susan Rice was sent out to lie instead. If true, and she was “too distraught” to face the nation, how can she be Commander-in-Chief?
    Still hasn’t explained why she denied repeated requests for greater security in the weeks and months leading up to the attack (even after Brits were attacked and subsequently left). – Huge failure.
    – Investigation into a series of cases involving sexual misconduct by both ambassadors as well as security personnel were called off on the orders of senior State Department officials on Clinton’s watch. Clinton’s chief of staff Cheryl Mills gave the order in one case while other top-level officials stopped other probes. The confirmation of the cases in an internal State Department memo shows a pattern of sexual misconduct—including on the part of those charged with protecting Clinton—that is troubling. But the manner in which higher-ups consistently suppressed these embarrassing investigations is even more worrisome. While Clinton is not personally named as the one ordering the cover-ups, the links between the secretary and those committing the bad behavior as well as those shutting down the probes are clear.

    The most egregious in a list of potentially explosive stories involves Howard Gutman, the U.S. ambassador to Belgium who was accused of routinely ditching his security detail and then soliciting prostitutes, including minors. But Patrick Kennedy, the undersecretary of state for management, ordered the investigation shut down. – FailureTotals:
    98 major failures covering 6 roles in government
    no major specific positive accomplishments

    So, what exactly has Mrs. Clinton has done to merit her status as a Presidential candidate ? Note, I don’t consider her having a chance to be elected the first woman President an “accomplishment”. I would love to see a woman President if she’s the most qualified person (male or female ) for the job. I haven’t been able to find a shred of evidence in her government career that shows her to be qualified, let alone the most qualified. She has been given numerous opportunities in high-profile, high-responsibility government jobs. I can’t find one where her performance made things better. There are obviously plenty where things were worse by the time she left.

    Can we afford a President with such a track record of failures? Too harsh? Please give me any specific examples of Mrs. Clinton performing a job capably, efficiently, ethically that she left in a better position than it was before she took over. Good Luck.

    Well I would have to say that 1.6 out of 5 seems a little rough, and I am tempted to give her a little more around a 2.6 or so….that seems more accurate to me. Of course this is just splitting hairs and I think that most of agree on much of the same and have similar opinions. In terms of her foreign policy, she always seems to be just enough of a competent leader to pass the smell test, but I do question her standing around the world politically. Her economic policy really seems to be a lot of talk and show, but then again we are in the beginning stage of a presidential campaign, so you have to factor that in.
