    Hillary was a Goldwater Republican, is way too hawkish, she's an apologist for big banks and is not that progressive except when it is politically convenient. As I've said, you might as well get in line and support her as she's the closest to a viable conservative candidate as you're going to get.

    That's the problem. The NDP here say the same things she does, and whenever they get into office it is "convenient" they pay off friends like big labor, public sector labor with huge raises and featherbedding.

    Playing to big banks is neither conservative nor original the Democrats, especially Clinton, have been riding on Wall Street money since Joe Kennedy bought Jackie the presidency. Taxing business like Obamacare or her plan is not business friendly but populist socialism, the death of much of Europe, like Greece, Spain, Italy and so forth.

    And she will go down the most convenient road, she has shown no signs of thinking outside a very small box

    Has she ever accepted responsibility as hers?

The fear is that charter schools or a school voucher program will pull kids from public schools leaving those who can't afford to make the transition behind. That IS a problem for society as a whole. Look at where we are today with so many students coming out of college unprepared to meet the demands of the labor force today. Same could be said of students graduating from high school unprepared for college.

    There's a lot that goes into this one issue of educating our children, but I'm beginning to see that there are benefits to charter schools and/or voucher programs that if done right could change the way our education system works and leave no child behind.

    But let's table this debate for another time, another thread and turn the discussion back over to Sen. Marco Rubio: Is he ready to be the next POTUS?

    Let the discussion continue...
    The candidate who pushes for school choice will score favorability points with me. So Rubio is good with vouchers. Most schools get their funding via the number of kids who makes up the census for that school. If a failing school starts losing kids in favor of other schools, that school SHOULD close and parents should make other arrangements to educate their kids. The most likely scenario though is that the teachers and principal of that failing school will want to save their jobs and if the only way they can do that is to up their game and do a better job of educating, then it is a win win for all.

    Rubio (and others) have made the point that competition rarely ever results in more inferior products.

    Yes, she is. And you have no idea what she did or didn't do, if anything. So you basically have nothing. Good day.

    Not when it doesn't suit her political ambitions. We are expected to accept a new idea about marriage. The individuals in a marriage do nothing which affects the partner, that they operate in a marital vacuum in which responsibility is not shared, and that the responsibility for one's actions does not affect the other. Simple. If you'll just accept this ridiculous narrative, we can move on.

    Greetings, humbolt.

    I guess we can be thankful they found each other, thereby inadvertently doing society a big favor! :

    I'm usually willing to try new things, but I'm gonna pass on this! It bothers me to think I might actually understand it...

She willfully engaged in cover ups of this stuff. Why? Because Bill's infidelity was secondary to her political ambitions. She was an enabler. By helping to conceal such actions, she suborned truth - not to mention outright lying. There was no vast right-wing conspiracy during the Lewinsky affair unless you consider an elected congress a conspiracy. This is her willful lying and placing the sanctity of her marriage in a secondary position to her other desires, and that's enough for me and anybody else with an ounce of common sense to understand that she certainly has a role in the whole damn thing. When any person attempts to conceal or mitigate the moral failures of another, that person is an enabler. She played her part.


    Well said!

    And we must not ignore the fact that Hillary was more than tacit in these escapades of adultery, she outright attacked the victims.

    She claims to be the messiah of women but has for decades has engaged in middle ages techniques of blaming the woman. That's about as feminist as Osama bin Laden
