    I think that Clinton would have won, no matter whom the Republicans had chosen, but we could have had a campaign based upon competing policy proposals, rather than what amounted to a Jackass Nation mini-series.
    Maybe so.

    OTOH she is barely beating a "Reality TV clown".

    They are the worst candidates ever.

    Did anyone see 60 Minutes last night?

    Republicans didn't nominate him because they don't like him. They nominated him because they see him as the best representative of what they think and believe. I never expected Clinton (nor any other Democratic candidate, for that matter) to get a large share of votes from Jackass Nation.

    I do blame the media for having a 6 month ad for Trump. They were thrilled to death,letting him phone in to every station.

    This really hurt moderate Republicans,who might have made good Presidents. Jen should have been chosen by Republicans in 2008. GW was not fit and without the chupicanery of the Rehnquist Court he would have never been selected.

    And there were better candidates from both parties...THIS GENERAL ELECTION.

    The best person does not always get the nomination.

    Trump was the loudest, most outrageous, and a bunch of other adjectives, and the most OUTSIDER.

    There are MANY reasons why he got the nomination, very few, if any, that made sense.

    I am with you on this. My post should have read Republicans,not Democrats.

    At this point I am not sure if I am coming or going. Friday, my TV was out for 7 hours of blessed relief.

    The American Media is in one of it's "down" times.

    Their coverage of this election has been incredibly poor. IF they have any dignity, they should be embarrassed by their profession, for their pathetic coverage of the 2016 election.....

    What the fuck makes you think you know that there were better candidates much less both sides of the aisle?

    I think the advertising needs to be looked at a little closer. I've heard so many bold-faced lies that it's incredible. I just heard one moments ago that said Hillary denied more security for Benghazi 500 times. I mean, the SOS isn't even the person who decides such matters but 500 fucking times? It's like the fucking stupid 650,000 emails bullshit. Are trumpets really that fucking stupid? They should not be allowed to lie to the country like that

    Not only that, but the news media did a horrible job explaining what the email and server issues were all about. So many people have the impression that Hillary did something illegal and she did NOT. But because of the way the news media discussed it you would think she'd done something illegal.
