She really is the “face” and the embodiment of the establishment Democratic Party and all that it stands for (or doesn’t). And she - and it - will never, EVER understand why she really lost the election, and why she has the lowest approval rating of any politician living currently, including Trump. They just. Don’t. Get. It.
Unfortunately, not enough Americans have awakened to the reality that the LOTE (lesser of two evils) voting strategy just doesn’t work, and that by constantly voting LOTE we are steadily driving the country further and further rightwards every election cycle. She and it are counting on enough Americans continuing to vote for the Democrats because - as Rahm Emmanual said in 2012, “What are they gonna do? Vote Republican?” Trump kinda proved the flaw in that logic, however, but even so, enough Americans will continue to vote Democratic despite it being against their own interests, to maintain the ongoing lie that is our Duopoly.
Despite his flaws, Bernie remains something fresh and different from the same-old-same-old-2-wings-of-the-same-party-neo-liberal-oligarchy “choices” that are vomited up for our perusal every few years. Americans NEED different, we NEED hope, we NEED someone who isn’t afraid to challenge the corrupt status quo and offer up some progressive ideas as if they aren’t an impossibility. And Hillary and the Dumbocrats just will not see that. If they abandoned their “Third Way” BS and disassociated themselves from Wall Street and actually got on board a truly progressive agenda, and once more stood for average Americans, they might - MIGHT - someday become relevant again. But we all know that is not going to happen. The party is dead for all practical purposes, and it is no different from the Rethugs in every way that substantively matters. And no, please do not give me the old “so you would prefer to have Trump than Hillary?” BS. I would prefer NEITHER. I am not a LOTE voter, and I never will be. If all Americans voted their own values instead of this triangulation, LOTE nonsense, we would not have Hillary OR Trump in the White House.
