Too bad Nixon didn't have Sanders around during Watergate "Tapes, who cares about missing tapes! Don't you worry yourselves about anything your government does, laws don't apply to us"
Too bad Woodward and Bernstein no longer exist but then there never has been much interest in the major media when it comes to Democratic candidates. Trump has more skeletons in his closet than a graveyard which I'm sure the media is just waiting to expose if he stumbles into the nomination. Even he, however, doesn't compare to the Bill and Hillary sideshow. She vehemently defended traditional marriage as one of her bedrock principles until it became politically expedient to change it. Her personal war on her husband's alleged victims is fairly well known so I'm unclear how she is the champion for women's rights. I believe she said herself in the debate that she defended Wall Street and everyone knows that is where the majority of her funds come from. How can anyone believe she will stand for the poor when she will owe her entire election to the supposedly hated rich?
I realize it is easier to turn a blind eye when one thinks the ends justify the means. It is just a few (thousand) emails. Nevermind that, in worst case, the FBI could still bring criminal charges and, even in best case, she willfully hid and attempted to destroy information rightfully owned by the public, purposely foiling FOIA requests that again are the right of the citizenry. Either that or she is admitting incompetence at her job which I think might be worse. Her defense that other people did it too doesn't even work for a typical parent's 10 year old let alone the Secretary of State. I believe trustworthiness should be something sought out in a President regardless of party affiliation.
I want to make clear that this is not an attempt to change anyone's mind to vote Republican. Geb Bush would not receive my vote in a million years and I'm glad he seems to be falling out of the race. The Trump is hopefully going to collapse at some point in the primaries so I don't have to choose whether to hold my nose at the ballot. The few I do like in the Republican field certainly have flaws but one can't reach the point of running for President without some potential problems. To me, it becomes a matter between the difference a wheelbarrow load and a semi truck. Bernie Sanders, though I personally would not vote for him, is a vastly better candidate than Hillary. I'd welcome an open debate between Sanders and a Republican who could articulate truly conservative ideas, Fiorina or Carson being my choices though I think Paul, Rubio, or Cruz would be interesting as well. My biggest fear in this now is that America ends up with Trump vs Clinton and the entire country loses. Both sides can do better and I'm afraid, if we don't, a second Civil War might be coming around the corner.
