Hotel New Hampshire: Check Out Bernie Sanders & Hillary Clinton (No Vacancy For Republicans) Comments (0)

A special moment with a (new!) supporter and his mother in Henniker, New Hampshire.

Posted by Hillary Clinton on Monday, February 8, 2016 

Truly touching moment between a genuinely thrilled new supporter of Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire and the lady herself. 

Below, Bernie Sanders underscores what he thinks his campaign is about: 

New Hampshire, Let's Transform America

What this campaign is about is ending a corrupt campaign finance system, a rigged economy and a broken criminal justice system. If there is a high turnout tomorrow in New Hampshire, I think we are going to win. Come out and vote and let's transform America. Thank you

Posted by Bernie Sanders on Monday, February 8, 2016

Today is the New Hampshire primary, and voting is underway! Why so much value and important is placed in Iowa and New Hampshire, two non-representative states, I'll never understand. But that's the game! Results will be in later tonight.

Before then, don't miss this great interview Hillary Clinton gave Rachel Maddow. Hillary really, really spells out why she thinks some people refuse to trust her. The best quote:

I emerged on the national scene in 1992, and I have been under relentless attack ever since. Now, just read behavioral science, read psychology: Even when all the attacks prove to be unfounded, untrue, it leaves a residue, right? People say, “Well, why is she being attacked so much? Must be something there.”

That is 100% true. I fought with a crazy dude on Mamie Van Doren's wall (I need new hobbies) who despises Hillary, will not vote Democrat if she is the nominee, and his argument boiled down to, “Well, why has she been in the middle of so many attacks and scandals since before I was born?”

First, he was older than I am, so he needs a calendar. But I also hope—hope!—people like him, who probably have many very valid criticisms of Hillary, will at least take a step back and consider that she is being attacked not because she deserves it, but because she represents a huge threat tot he status quo. Yes, she is more status quo than Bernie Sanders, but he is not a woman (sorry, it does make a difference) and he is not the front-runner anywhere except in New Hampshire. He will be just as unfairly tarred and feathered if he miraculously out-maneuvers Hillary—and he will not deserve the abuse either.

Radical Conservatives Comments (0)

Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, and Bobby Jindal—Republican candidates for the presidency—attended a religious conference thrown by a man who literally advocates that LGBT people be put to death. He's even thought of methods.

This kind of thing should be considered when using the word conservative for these clowns. This is life-and-death, here, not a matter of good people disagreeing.
