Tim Kaine was as exciting as a bowl of rice pudding and just about as tough.
Looking back at the presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton made just about every conceivable mistake possible.
She thought the nomination was her’s for the taking.
An old non-Democrat and socialist Bernie Sanders excited most of the base.
Had Clinton chosen Sanders as her vice presidential pick, she likely would have been elected.
It is sad when the non-trump voters totaled more votes than trump. This is the flaw in the electoral college.
The presidential election should be run like most other elections in our country. If none of the candidates gains 50 percent plus one vote, there has to be a run-off between the two top vote getters.
In my mind Clinton was elected except for an archaic law dating back to formation of federalism.
Many of the founding fathers did not trust the people. That is why they formed the electoral college. Except this time around, the electoral college worked against their reasoning for having the electoral college.
The electoral college should be abolished.
If there is the need for a run-off election for president, that is the way it should be done.
Had only Clinton and trump been on the ballot, I believe that Clinton would have won.
There are so many ideological idiots who throw their votes away on third-party candidates. These are the people I blame for trump being elected,
“Ewwwww, I don’t like Hillary. And I won’t vote for trump. I am voting for Jill Stein in protest.” In other words, they are voting for trump. That was the reality.
But look how entertaining Trump is.
You couldn't afford to pay for comedy at that level.
