    Your "both sides the same" bullshit is starting to look a tiny bit desperate now, Alistair.

    Keep it up though, it will be enntertaining watch you dig yourself in to an ever deeper rhetorical hole.
    Desperate how?

    I'm pretty clearly in the "Clinton > Trump" camp and have said so repeatedly. The fact some of you ignore that part is your problem.

    I think she's a liar, and I think she's corrupt. But as shown, her supporters often say "yep, but she's no worse than any politician".

    So ok, she's an average liar and average thief then. If that's the best we can do this cycle, ok. She should still be held to account and scrutiny, like any leader in any party.

    Frankly, I think her 8 years (and she will get 8 if her health allows it, be assured) will be rather mundane, middle of the road politically. She's start and wage at least one War/whatever word we use for War by that point, but thats near de facto now. ISIS or some variant will still be going strong when she leaves office.

    She'll rule domestically as a middle of road Democrat just like Bill, more Eisenhower Republican than Sanders Socialist. She and Bill will make a massive amount of money, as will her charity, and donors will get favors in one form or another, but no one will ever prove pay for play or illegal intent, so no worries. All the folks who helped her at State and now in the cycle will get great Admin. jobs.

    Nothing she wants will get passed, nothing important at least, but she'll get three S.C. Noms, and the Court will rule very progressively and change a number of rights and the like in her time. Gun rights are almost assuredly to be limited. Voting rights expanded and checks reduced. Abortion strengthened, LGBTWhathaveyou also codified by the court.

    All pretty predictable stuff, really.

    I'll make out just fine, great in fact, as I always do under Dem Admins. The real humor will be watching the Don's and Aea's ongoing and near constant "she din do nuttin'" posts every time her Admin is accused/caught in a scandal.

    But at the end of the day, at least it won't be Trump. On that I presume we agree.

    8 years of "Eisenhower Republican" would do the US a world of good.

    So if someone benefits from results of :massive corruption:, is he not corrupt himself?

    Yeah, remember Bill Clinton's era of budget surpluses? I don't think America is strong enough to survive such horror again.

    with the current pmuch 0% interest rate on gov bonds it would be a bit daft not to get more debt. if nothing else invest it in the crumpling infrastructure.

    Great, because we're going to find out real soon if that's true.

    This is a great example of why you're an idiot.

    If Clinton engages in corruption whilst in office, she will be the beneficiary. Not me.

    If I live under a Clinton Administration, I will need to live under the laws and regulations and funding environment she leads, and I will exploit opportunities provided by the Government in standard operation.

    The fact you can't tell these two concepts apart makes you an idiot.

    So you keep saying. I wonder what it would take for you to withdraw your support.

    Then again, in order to withdraw, there must be another option. With Trump, there is no other option (apart form 3rd party waste-votes).

    So do you think Hillary's Administration will give us Budget Surpluses then?

    We won't get a surplus on Hillary's watch.

    Decent chance we get another recession and bail-out, however.

    That's a pretty big assumption, since under Hillary, all non-lesbian white males will be subject to Death Panels™.
