The final figure, at least, is in the right ballpark - politifact examined some claims in April which gave Clinton 2.4 million more votes than Sanders.  Taking into account recent losses, that number seems in the area of being right.

But they probably wont be, because the Bush years are like some sort of fever dream which, if you go by people who are actually in politics, never actually happened.

I know it doesn't seem like it could have happened.

which makes the fuckery very Nixon-esque.  She was going to win without wasserman-Schultze's "help".

well, 81% of Sander's voters have gone over to Clinton, and 8% have gone over to Trump, leaving only the hardcore Bernie Bros, most of whom have decided that he's a "sellout" for doing what he said he'd do, and are now voting for Jill Stein's stupid ass.

Donald Trump is a vulgar clown posing as a conservative, unmoored to any coherent ideology. He has generated unprecedented opposition and the contempt of people across the political spectrum. He is unbound to any principle other than his own appetite for adulation. And those very factors that make him so appalling also make him America’s only hope.

Let’s be clear – being a veteran is not a “Get out of work free” card that excuses you from the basic responsibility of supporting yourself and your family. If I pass a bum with a sign reading “Homeless Vet,” I don’t feel an overpowering surge of solidarity. I feel disgusted that another low-life is trying to milk sympathy off a proud status that millions of us earned with our blood and sweat and years of our lives.

What should really worry you is the guy who wrote that is a trial lawyer and was previously a colonel in the Army.

Is your professional officer classes learning?  Sadly, nope.

What the actual fuck? I don't think a serious ex-colonel would "troll" like this. He must be a serious sack of shit.

The military is full of scum, and I am honestly not suprised a lawyer that was a colonel would say that. Odds are he went to law school, joined as a captain, and never actually led troops.

Out of curiosity, what is the feeling of the military to the two candidates? I can't see them being overly fond of either.

Ah, yes. I forgot college puts you at higher ranks. Good point.

You mean of Clinton and Trump?

Clinton, based on her Sec. State time, seems hawkish, USA-policing-the-world sort of thing. Like neocon lite.

Trump wants to make the Middle East a glass parking lot.

Badly phrased question sorry was trying to ask if the military branches prefer either candidate above the other. Suspect Clinton's likely aims will not be too popular but Trump is also retarded with questionable aims/ goals so....
