Vote for a Democrat or a Republican. Straight or gay. Black or white. Male or female. European or Hispanic. Evangelical or Atheist. But don't vote for any of them just because that's what they are. Vote for someone who has a track record of accomplishments. Who has a track record of working with others. Who is respected by their peers. Who has management experience. Who knows how to build something. We've suffered through 5 years with someone who has never so much as managed a third shift at a Taco Bell. Let's not repeat that.

johnmpls: "We've suffered through 5 years with someone who has never so much as managed a third shift at a Taco Bell." No, he managed gthe Harvard Law Review, Spent 12 years in the Illinois Legislature and was a U. S. Senator before being elected twice as President. Contrast that with his predecessor who was given everything as a child, was a complete failure as the owner of the Texas Rangers, was one of the worst governors in the US, and was handed the Presidency by his Daddy's appointees on the Supreme Court. Then he took us into two trillion-dollar wars in the Middle East, doubled our national debt and brought our economy to the edge of a Depression. The last five years has been a dramatic improvement over the Bush regime.

elmore1: "Extremists in both parties, please stay on the sidelines." So, based on what the candidates have stood for and said, Hillary is the only moderate in the fight. Chris Christie had that role as well for the GOP for a while, but he will have to pull a "Mitt" and kowtow to the Tea Party to get the nomination.

Ivehadit---the sad thing is your hate precludes you from making common sense. You think that running a law review and being in a state senate qualifies you for running a multi trillion dollar business. Bush ran a State, and a business. He was NOT handed anything by anyone, give that up. Three indipendent college studies have proven that Bush Actually won florida and the country! As for the wars, your hate prevents you from acknowledging that your idols asked bush to go into those wars. As for the collapse, unless you acept Obama's administrations own report that the collapse was the fault of Everyone, you don't learn from your mistakes. Prime Example? The FCIC report states that the problem began with Clinton forcing banks to give out unqualified loans. Guess what your idol, the blamer in chief, did when he became president. Sued banks to force them to give out unqualified loans. The funny part is, at the very same time, he was suing banks because they gave out unqualified loans when Clinton force them.

Don't you just love the poeple that think it's horrible that"Bush doubled the debt", but think it's just great that Obama has doubled the amount Bush did. They hide behind fancy math. If you double 5 trilliion, that means you have spent 5 trillion more. Yes, that's doubling the debt. But, obama is on course to double the debt again, which means he will have increased the debt by TEN trillion. But, evidently that's ok, because he has a "D" after his name.

"Clinton, banging hER fists screaming "WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE".... Advertisements containing Ms. Clinton's abhorable behavior in the wake of the Behghazi attack should be played incessently throughout the 2016 campaignt. I cannot fathon how ANY American who truly loves his or her country could possible vote her having seen this unforgivable display of arrogance and apathey.

The last five years has been a dramatic improvement over the Bush regime. ***************** The last 5 years did not see unemployment under 7 percent. The average unemployment during the Bush administration was 5.6 percent. Where is the improvement in unemployment? There have been record high bankruptcies the past 5 years compared to the previous 8, where is the improvement? We dropped in the national credit rating, where is the improvement? Could you please define "improvement"
