    Her campaign seems to skirt the edge of scandal besides, trusting in the media to cover her ass. It seems they do, though. Perhaps with the media in her pocket she actually is scandal-proof.
    In response to the emerging sociopolitical reality in the U.S, the media is abandoning democrats, Clinton or otherwise, and the democratic primary debates and townhall forums moderated by the "liberal media" provide ample evidence of that. Early on in this election cycle, when special interest groups - including media conglomerates, viewed democrats and republicans as rivals to be appeased equally, the media did score points with the Clinton campaign by sidestepping around sensitive issues such as her ties with the financial industry and her stance on campaign finance reform. But as it transpired that republicans are out for blood and are willing to do anything to win the presidency, they shamelessly veered right. The phrasing of questions to both Clinton and Sanders and the comportment of the moderators eerily copy republican politics, which is a reflection of the conclusion among power brokers and elites that democrats already dropped the ball - it's time to get on with the times.

    That aside, it remains a question of the validity of those scandals and how she'll continue to handle republican slander going into the general elections. A few months back republicans held the latest hearing on the emails, et.al fiasco, and the result? a public display of filthy republican partisan politics and a martyr Clinton standing large in the face of vicious hounds. Her favorability ratings immediately rose, spurring republicans to panic and decide against any more public hearings. That's not to dismiss the possibility that a criminal investigation might yield something genuine, or that some other actual scandal may unravel in the middle of the general elections, but this is to point to the possibility that it could go the other way as it did in the past.

    If I were a democrat, or a sane American realizing the derangement on the republican side and the perils it poses to the state, I'd bet my bottom dollar on Hillary no matter how I look at it.

    Clinton is objectively the less electable candidate.

    Re: hillary more electable than sanders ?

    I completely disagree, I believe Bernie is far more electable than Hillary since he is beating trump, Cruz and Rubio by far greater margins than she is.

    Bernie is beating Cruz by 17% (57% to 40%), he is also beating Trump by 12% (55% to 43%), and he's also beating Rubio by 8% (53% to 45%).

    While Hillary is only beating trump by 8% (52% to 44%), however she is loosing to Cruz by 1% (48% t 49%), and loosing to Rubio by 3% (50% to 47%.

    As the numbers show Bernie Sanders is far more electable than Hillary Clinton.

    Hillary Clinton if MUCH, MUCH more electable than Bernie Sanders.

    I love Bernie...I love what he stands for and for his steadfastness. But they are the reasons he is not nearly as electable as Hillary.

    BEING ELECTED is the most important part of any politician's agenda. If you are not in office and the opposition is...things are screwed up.

    If Hillary is more electable than Bernie, then please show me facts and examples.
    Being electable is important, but according to this poll I showed earlier Bernie is far more electable than Hillary.

    hillary more electable than sanders ?
    hard to say. the Republican party seems poised to commit suicide no matter how swiftly we all dive for the gun, so i'd speculate that Sanders would probably also beat the incompetent idiot that they're about to nominate. however, Sanders is only there as a spoonful of sugar for progressives before they have to vote for the hawkish, corporatist nominee who will likely focus on stupid policies like expanding the wars and federal gun control during her one term (and that's another bit of speculation there) as president.

    Could be.

    Every politician should know it.

    I've said it since the beginning, I really would love to see Trump vs Sanders. Let our nation choose our path for the future. This death by a thousand cuts bull**** has got to stop.
