at least hillary has political experience, but I have fallen back on the possibility of impeachment for either as a way to make myself feel better.

If I had S/TS/SCI information on an unsecured, private machine at home, I'd be in jail by now regardless of when it was classified. Having asked people to not send such sensitive information to me would not be a defense that held up in court. Then there is the aspect of information that, individually, is unclassified but becomes classified when congregated with other like information... The Clintons have been mirred in self-serving scandal since before Bill was in office. No thanks. It is sad that Trump is the 'alternative'. When will people realize that the novelty vote is a bad thing?

I hope the Secret Service is watching for their garage sale, where they sell all the shit they stole from the White House.

So Bill Clinton started migrating inner city people to the suburbs in the 1990's, with his HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros (who resigned in disgrace). Now Obama is expanding that failed program, expanding Section 8 housing to the better 'burb neighborhoods. I wonder if Hillary will feel the need to continue Bill and Barack's failed program? That deflating noise you hear is your suburban property values...

PS - Julian Castro is speculated to be Hillary's VP...

In the "other" polls something interesting has happened.

For the first time, Republican Donald Trump seems to have edged ahead of Democrat Hillary Clinton in presidential polling. But only just. What does it mean and should those opposed to Trump be worried?

The polling data site RealClearPolitics (RCP) takes an average of national polls that ask Americans who they would choose in a contest between the two candidates (a scenario that now looks inevitable). On Sunday, RCP updated their numbers to show that Trump is now, on average, 0.2 percentage points ahead of Clinton.

The polling average has become the go-to number for those trying to make quick sense of the state of the presidential race. Thatís problematic in itself; this election canít be predicted on the basis of just one number, not least because a candidateís vote share does not neatly translate to their chances of winning the White House. Each state wields a different number of electoral votes, so it matters how a candidateís support is distributed throughout the country.

Democratic victories in highly populous states, which have more electoral votes to award, could cause the performance of the Democratic candidate in the electoral college to outstrip her or his performance in the popular vote. In 2008, Barack Obama won 68% of the electoral college vote with only 53% of the popular vote. Clinton may be buoyed in the 2016 election cycle by traditional Democratic strength in populous states such as New York, New Jersey, Illinois and California.

Thereís another, much bigger problem with the RCP average, though: itís only as good as the individual polls that make it up. RCP always takes a straight average of the five most recent polls that were conducted. Once you peek under the hood, youíll see that an average of 0.2 percentage points flattens out some very different findings. These are the five latest polls RCP used to calculate Trumpís narrow lead:

ABC News/Washington Post: Trump leads by 2 percentage points
NBC News/Wall Street Journal: Clinton leads by 3 percentage points
Rasmussen Reports: Trump leads by 5 percentage points
FOX News: Trump leads by 3 percentage points
CBS News/New York Times: Clinton leads by 6 percentage points

But don't forget the Hillery defense : nah nah nah nah , nah nah ; everybody else did it also.
What's next, my dog ate my copy of the office protocols , and then , I left early that day and nobody told me I had to do it.
Last nights news seems like Obama and me agree on one thing , Trump is rattling the world leaders because they cant figure out what his next move will be, except Obama says it is bad I still disagree, why do you think every sports team watches films, every business studies it's competition , to beat them not join them. Time for us to win a few games.

Yes. Is anyone upset he's rattling foreign leaders? They're rattled because they're worried their free gravy train at our expense that's helping them support all their socialistic policies will dry up. Trade equality, particularly for protection. Good heavens!

I thought we had bad options in 08 and 12, but these two are the worst candidates this country has ever seen. Trump is an embarrassment and Hillary is just repugnant. Will be staying home on election day....not that it matters living in SC.

Seems like the greatest country in the world could come up with better options. Sad really.

Obama saying trump is rattling leaders was supposed to scare people but it made many smile. This is what he doesn't get. The manipulation has been exposed.

Trump thanked him for the positive plug I believe.


Regarding the snake woman...she's done but still believes Obama telling her "don't worry about a thing" was written in stone.
She's getting played like a one string banjo.

I have the same problem in California. Whether I want it or not, my "vote" will be for Hillary.

We need a national popular vote!

We had an excellent choice in '08. And Sen. McCain would have been an excellent choice, as he would have survived and Palin would not have become prez. That was my only reservation about his candidacy. I hope Colin Powell will now admit his mistake in endorsing Obama.
