Smart People Love Hillary Clinton. Why?
Almost 90 percent of all donations to 2016 presidential candidates from people affiliated with Ivy League colleges and universities have gone to Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Professors, administrators and students at the America’s fancypants Ivy League schools have given $248,907 to Clinton as of September 24, reports Campus Reform.
The $248,907 represents 87.51 percent of all donations from people at the eight schools in the Ivy League athletic conference.
Another Democrat, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, is the second-place recipient of Ivy League cash. The self-proclaimed socialist has received $18,851 from denizens of Ivy League campuses. The amount is 6.63 percent of total donations.
Bill and Hillary Clinton are among the most prodigious fundraisers in U.S. history, having hauled in an astonishing $1.4 billion over their long political careers, a new analysis reveals.

Smart People don't vote GOP. Not if they value this country, its people, its infrastructure, and its economy.
Smart people love Hillary because she's a person who gets things done, is competent, intelligent, driven, and passionate.
Smart people also recognize that she'll have establishment backing and backing of colleagues and party machinery... something Bernie almost completely lacks, which means even if his ideas are better, he has less leverage to use to implement them.
Oh yeah, and Al Gore is smarter than Ted Cruz by leaps and bounds (and far less criminal/sociopathic).

The World is total mess thanks to GWBush and GOP politics of Nationalism and Exceptionalism. ALL of that was deposited on the American soil by Nader spoiler voters that refused to support the Dem party after Nader last to Gore. Appealing to the narcissim of academic lefties, youthful voters is all it takes to deliver GOP santan to the white house (and the Supreme Court, and the Senate) once again.
Hillary has enough street cred to rally the world around this global crisis, after Iraq she will LOATH any war. I travel the world monthly and anyone other than Hills cannot handle this awful shitstorm, certainly not Sanders. I also trust Hillary emphatically, she will be unilaterally the most qualified President this country has seen in a long long time.
Sanders is cute, makes good points and will never carry anything beyond Vermont/NH and maybe some of Cali. He is a Nader spoiler, and nothing BUT a Nader spoiler. The GOP is putting everything they can into pushing young Dems into the losing but devisive Sanders camp. He has good ideas, but is a foolish old man.

People with degrees from Ivies (and I have four) typically want to be on the side of a winner. They hedge their bets as a lifestyle -- and part of that hedging is an Ivy League degree.

You shouldn't compare Laura Bush with Hillary.
Hillary was a partner in governance with Bill to the extent that the public would let her be. She was elected Senator for two terms, then was Secretary of State. She ran her own campaign before, as well as campaigned for Bill. She knows everybody, people like her, and millions are voting for her.
Laura Bush hated politics, and is on record as initially saying that she didn't even want to give a political speach to support her husband. She's never run for her own office. Nonetheless, if Laura was elected to the Senate twice, then served as S of S for 4 years, then ran for President and was vetted as all candidates are, then it wouldn't seem ridiculous at all to me that she would do so.

I don't love Hillary, but I'm voting for her -- because you know what I really don't love? I don't love the idea of right-wing loons occupying the White House, nominating Supreme Court justices and setting the nation's course.
And young people, Bernie is a tiresome, cranky old man, and no one who knows him likes him. And the policies he espouses will never be passed by any Congress, ever.

That's not true. Vermonters love Bernie. Evidence: in the primary, with heavy turnout, Bernie won 86% of the vote in Vermont, where they have known him for thirty years. Whereas Hillary's votes in New York have been lower percentage wise against unknown opposition that couldn't even afford a single ad.

And he doesn't actually have any policies (as demonstrated by the Daily News interview). He has sound bites which play well to under-informed people.
Break-up the big banks - okay, how? What impact will that have on the economy?
Rich people should pay their fair share - okay, what is a fair share? How will you pass that legislation?
Free college - it's like an Oprah giveaway...you get college and you get college and you get college. College today isn't even worth what a high school diploma was 25 years ago unless you went to a top tier school. How will that help people when you're merely creating a glut of people with such dipolmas?

After this last week, I understand why none of Bernie's co-senators support him, and I understand why he was never able to pass any legislation.
The guy is a disaster, both intellectually and politically.
It's surprising Devine and Weaver ignored this going in. He is not likable and has no grasp of the issues whatsoever.

Because she has put forward detailed and concrete plans to achieve her policy goals. She is singular among all the candidates in that respect although this does not seem to matter to most people- just other smart people who prepare and do the homework and legwork associated with achievement.

The Republicans will scare the peasantry by informing them of Bernie's communism and that'll be the end of him. (unless we're lucky enough to see Trump as the candidate - then who knows what the hell will happen - the UN might intervene with troops or something)
But anyway, imo, smart people believe Bernie's socialism will be too toxic an issue for him to win an election in this backward country. Hillary's hated but she's not a fricking Stalinist Maoist Trotskyite who wants to overturn our democracy with a Soviet-style "revolution" (that's what the knuckle draggers will be told and they'll believe it)

R118 don't forget that the Republicans will totally jump on the, "Bernie has rape fantasies," thing.
And just like a lot of Bernie supporters... none of it has to be true, they'll believe whatever they're told.

It is funny. Remember in Obama's first four years, when the Republicans were raving about how great Hillary was and what a shame she wasn't President instead of Obama, who they judged to be a disaster from his first day in office? They did so to try to discredit The President. Now, of course, it's "never mind all that, she was always awful", according to the Republicans.

Smart people can see through Karl Rove's propaganda.

For the sake of accuracy Sanders is not a registered independent. There is no party registration in Vermont. He certainly identifies as an independent.

That's my impression of Hillbots.
