    The post I was responding to explicitly argued the opposite:

    And every Democratic president has been getting increasingly more conservative than the last.
    But I guess everybody's to the right of everybody when it's convenient for the doomsday cult argument.

    Is someone campaigning on bringing back AFDC? That must be a hidden plank of Bernie's because I haven't heard that.

    Wow, a suburbanite kid backed her father's candidate in high school? Scandal!

    Of course, once she left home and went to college she supported Gene McCarthy in '68 and McGovern in '72.

    Hillary Clinton is every bit as conservative as the average republican.

    If you cannot see the truth on this...you simply cannot see it.

    Stay home; vote for a third party...whatever.
    To acknowledge what you do not know, is a display of strength; to pretend you know what you truly do not, is a display of weakness.

    The only one who can't see the truth is you, Frank.

    If you do not want to vote for Hillary Clinton either, Governess...don't.

    Stay home; vote for a third party; vote for Donald Trump.

    Cutting off one's nose to spite their face is a favorite tactic of people who are immature.

    No, but it's telling that the rhetoric used to cut it was exactly the rhetoric republicans use today.

    I didn't know about those.

    She volunteered for McCarthy in New Hampshire in '68, wrote her senior thesis on Saul Alinsky in '69, and then she and Bill helped run operations for the McGovern campaign in Texas in '72. And McGovern endorsed her in the 2008 Dem primaries.
