I really hope it won't happen but we have suffered and come back from worse as a nation. I have been pretty apolitical this season but have been leaning Hillary big time considering the alternatives.
I think that she will make a good President. I think she is ready and competent and no more or less honest than any other politician. Still there is cause for worry. A new book shows her hands all over the early architecture of the Iran deal.
I disagree with her big time on some major areas of foreign policy. But I think that she will make a better President than people can imagine. Tough, bright woman. Not sure why she engenders the extreme ire of certain people.
Trump said that she didn't look "presidential" which I think was a way to point out the obvious fact that she has a vagina, a clear differentiation from the past residents of the White House.
Heard an interview yesterday with Weld, Gary Johnson's Libertarian Party VP running mate. That is a nice ticket of two former governors. But polls show that it siphons off dem votes and swings the national election four points Trump's way. So people need to be careful and not throw their vote away because it will elect a lying pitchman con man that will show the rest of the world and much of the galaxy that we are absolutely fucking nuts. And it could easily happen.
I'm happy that California went so big for Hillary. She needed a little tailwind, a little help, since Bernie had eroded her support with his attack from the flank. See you Bernie, you almost did it. We were this close to becoming the new Norway.
