She's united the left and the right against her, and made it obvious that the oligarchy spans both parties, and that every resource is being used to lie cheat and steal her way into the whitehouse so that she can continue to sell America to the highest bidder for blood money.

I am a Trumper-but for a serious question, I will give you a serious answer, as best I can for being my own devils advocate[trying my best not to be biased and I do accept the downvoats in my future]: First and for most, I find that her first issue on her campaign site addresses addiction & substance abuse. This issue is something our country needs not only a new approach to, but a total overhaul of the criminal charges one faces for having a 'drug' on their person. A character quality that is 'redeeming' is that to have made it this far-despite how it was accomplished, she made it happen. She could have easily been buried under anyone number of obstacles, but managed to make the right friends and obtain high ranking goals. Not many would be capable of doing such. To end this in a 3-point response, I would say she could be a good president based upon her knowledge of just how stressful and difficult the role of president is through watching her husband go through it and being close to Obama these last eight years, yet she still desires the position.

That's about as good as I can give off cuff, but would love to hear from actual supporters.

I'm not a Hillary supporter, but I always like to hear both intelligent sides of an argument. You sir/madam have taught me something new about Hillary and I want to thank you for that. I wasn't aware of her stance on addiction and substance abuse, which I agree is handled quite poorly.

Even tho I'm not a Hillary supporter, I'll add that she does have a lot of experience with foreign affairs. Whether or not you agree with how she conducted those affairs is one thing, but her experience and relationships cannot be denied. I believe that could be one of her strongest strengths as president.

I'm just so inspired that voaters have upvoated me-I love that what this site is about is proving successful. Also, I'm glad you found the information helpful, and I do agree she has political experience with foreign countries is an important point-though, as I'm sure you share the understanding of the importance of international business experience Trump has had. It's really a most beautiful tift for taft argument.

Mad props for effort at productive discourse, dude, but I find this purported opposition to the war on drugs to be severely undercut by the "superpredator" crime bill stuff from the 90s, and utterly demolished by her history of campaign donations from prison corporations.

Seriously, she should have gotten zero percent of the black vote.

The prison system is 100% disgusting and goes against everything America stands for. IMO Hilary is not the person to fix it, but at least she's bringing attention to it, something no other high ranking official would even touch a decade ago.

You deserve a medal for that response. That's like digging through a septic tank to find a lost wedding ring. Not many people could do what you just did.

For a lizard she's got a decent fitting human skin suit. More than I can say for mark zuckerberg. That guys skin suit is way too small. You can see his scales right through it.

NOTE: I'm not a Hillary supporter, I'm not even American.

Her good sides are pretty obvious to me - she's the opposite to Trump during these elections. Pro helping the low and middle class,pro protecting the environment etc... A lot of women choose her over T cause she's pro choice. Plenty lot of people in general might choose her cause she hasn't said anything supporting the pro-vaxxers (they're afraid he might be nuts).

Now, T may not be sexist, homophobic, racist,anti- semitic etc. but plenty of his supporters are. His economic policies might sound really good to some but once the choice is between supporting a candidate who has lots of "extreme right wing" people loudly declaring their alliance or just a plain regular dirty politician, then the choice is pretty clear. Publicly taking his side is bound to be a bad move when it comes to your social life.

Of course H also has the political experience, she comes off much more kind than trump and she'd be the first female president. Trump opens his mouth and he's immediately classed as a stupid meanie. There's so many things.

pro protecting the environment

Um, except for the Keystone XL pipeline, while campaigning wouldn't say is for or against it, while records show she's taken money from that constituency.

2016 vote for NONE OF THE ABOVE!

It's part of the portrayal of her party, but in reality she hasn't done much for the lower and middle classes other than exploit them for political gain. She worked as a director of Wal-Mart for 5 years. That company destroys local businesses and pays the sort of wages that leave many of their workers left to rely on social welfare/foodstamp type programs just to make ends meet. She also has been a huge proponent of free trade agreements which have destroyed many of the mid wage jobs that lower and middle class Americans used to be able to pursue as a living. This is a political low-blow, but it really does sum her up quite well: giving a stump speech on income inequality while wearing a $12,000 jacket.

And while I can't blame her for her husband's actions, I think it's safe to say she had at least some sway with Bill. During his term he passed "welfare reform" that destroyed countless programs and jobs that had been around in the USA since we pulled out of the great depression. He also did things such as increase prison sentences and private prison funding while stripping away educational funding for prisons. The reason this is important is that in America we put everybody in prison. At our peak we had more than 1% of the entire country in prison or jail. About 3% of all individuals in the US will be imprisoned at some time. I don't know the number for just males, but it's some multiple higher than that. Stripping away one of the few ways for these individuals to attempt to reform themselves while in prison is bizarre to say the least.

Apparently, having traveled a lot as SoS makes her eminently qualified. The Crooked Hillary cultists always fail to mention that she was the world's preeminent merchant of death during that time.

Oh, and she also supposedly had the "most liberal" voting record as a carpetbagging senator in NY.

Finally, she's apparently the truthiest candidate in the race, according to politifact: http://www.dailynewsbin.com/news/fact-checkers-confirm-hillary-clinton-is-more-honest-than-any-of-her-2016-opponents/24196/

That's a real knee-slapper.
