How can Hillary Clinton be a “bad candidate” when she won the popular votes? She got the most votes in US Presidential elections, ever. “Bad candidates” don’t get that many popular votes.

That's a little like a football team saying, we didn't win, but we got the most yards! Woo hoo!

That's not the measuring stick that counts.

I watched a recent program on her past. Quite interesting. I hope those points are shown as she progresses.

Not the she is my choice, but she fights for the common person, not the upper rich class.

It might have been on Rachel Maddox show

I agree
For 2016, regardless of liking a candidate or not you have to look at the other viable choice. That explains a lot of votes on both sides. That's why I voted for Gary Johnson.

Good example of how her message will get smothered. Rump has already made mincemeat out of her. Earnestness is the wrong weapon against 45. We need folksy charisma that lets attacks bounce off her back.

Her interview with Rachel Maddow tonight. Here's her narrative for the race. Think it'll fly?

What makes her a "bad candidate" if she won the popular vote?

Given who she was running against, given her resume, given her considerable experience on the public stage . . . she should have won in a landslide.

The reason she didn't is because she was a *bad candidate.* Oh, how quickly they forget . . .

Deplorables.

Put coal mines out of business.

When she and Bill left the White House, they were dead broke.

Decided to sell out and give speeches to Wall Street for $$$ that came back to bite her.

Wasn't straight with us about the emails, or her illness.

Either was complicit in Bill visiting the AG on her jet to talk about the email investigation, or couldn't control him to prevent it.

She is no good at being a candidate. Just doesn't have what it takes.

I also think that people were/are getting tired of the presidential dynasties of Bush/Clinton, because, let's face it, they are a bit slimy.

BUT they both look like choirboys (choir persons) compared to our current incumbent. ABT still works for me.

Aside to Mik: I don't understand, you thought Gary Johnson was a viable candidate?

Didnt read the article, but I’ll give her that. She has bold ideas, I just think they’re really bad ones. And they mark her as a dangerous person for a leadership role in a free society.
