    So, to continue. When we left the last thread Clinton was at fault and Obama wasn't a Democrat.

    Continue.

    He was a democrat, just a conservative one in practice (though he didn't campaign that way). I'm not the first person that's pegged him as a center-right dem.

    As for Hillary she's basically doing more harm than good at this point and just needs to disappear. She can abdicate all responsibility for her loss in private, I don't think anyone would take issue with that (minus crazy NRA types who will find a way to get mad at her regardless).

    If she's harming the party you have bigger problems than her.

    This, I agree with. She needs to hole up and let the Clinton legacy mellow out over time.

    That said, it's not Hill's nature to go down without getting the last word in, so I expect her to keep blabbing to anyone who will listen. Remember, "I suppose I could've stayed home, and baked cookies, and held teas, but instead I chose to work."

    As long as she is in the limelight, she'll be the boogeywoman. Her hubby, OTOH, still has cred.

    No but...candidates winning the presidential election based on votes of American citizens:

    Democrats
    Clinton '92
    Clinton '96
    Gore '00
    Obama '08
    Obama '12
    Clinton '16

    Republicans
    Bush '04 (Note: this occurred because he was an incumbent...which he shouldn't have been)

    Have to disagree. Obama was a mainstream Democrat. He just wasn't quite the fighter he could have been. Per on the issues (scroll to the bottom):

    Conservative Women are just as misogynist as their male counterparts.

    In the US he's probably a left liberal. Globally, not even close.

    I don't know that he wasn't a fighter. He had Jackie Robinson's dilemma -- he had to take all the Fox/Dump/Hate Radio racist d-ckbag sh-t and not react. He did what he could with the cards he was dealt.

    I still think it's a fluke they didn't murder him like they did Martin and Bobby.

    There were reasons - and in all probability good ones - why he didn't tough out some issues. Its part of what makes cheating - e.g. gerrymandering - on the right downright criminal.

    considering the cards he was dealt (great recession, and obstructionist republican party that controlled congress for much of his time in office), I think he will likely be the greatest president of my lifetime (so far, it's not even close -- but I was born near the end of the Carter administration)

    I've got em since JFK and he's the top among those in my lifetime by a mile, but you never know. I honestly thought nobody would be worse than Dubya, and then Dump recalibrates the whole scale.

    Likewise, I never thought you'd lose the title as most out in space lefty loon, but after trix' recent comments you're now in 2nd place! Better step it up or he's going to end up in bed with Bernie instead of you.

    For the record, the scorecard of the last several hard core lefties as Dem nominees (Dukakis, Mondale, McGovern): 0 for 3 with 12 states won in 3 elections (10 of which were won by the Duke). So called conservaDems record (Carter, Clinton, Gore, Kerry, Obama, Clinton): 5 out of 9, and won the popular vote 7 out of 9 times. Sometimes the math doesn't lie...

    It's almost like things have changed since 1980. 0 for 1 amongst the current generation of younger voters the math doesn't lie . Not to mention every poll showing that people are further left of the mainstream apparatus of the dem party who have moved left on various issues in the wake of your favorite candidate's embarrassing loss that put the current idiot in power.
