The win for Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire isn't only enormous in terms of momentum, it undermines the foundation of Hillary Clinton's campaign. NBC News reports 55% of female voters in New Hampshire chose Bernie Sanders, while 44% voted for Clinton. As potentially the first female president, Clinton still lost the women's vote to Sanders.
One little-known fact this year is that Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio have benefited from prison lobbyist money. In fact, they've taken almost the same amount of contributions from major prison lobbyists. Clinton's campaign has received $133,246 while Rubio's campaign accepted $133,450 from the prison lobby.
Several years before Bernie Sanders zoomed towards a virtual tie in national polls with Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren began the discussion about Wall Street's influence in American politics. Warren even declared in 2014 that a portion of President Obama's Omnibus bill "was written by Citigroup lobbyists."
Clinton might be "wicked smart," like President Obama states, but Bernie Sanders possesses wisdom. Wisdom and intelligence are different, and if you confuse the two, you're stuck with an endless stream of politicians like Hillary Clinton. With Bernie Sanders, America will get someone who makes decisions based upon principle and value system, not political expediency and evolution.
Today's Democratic choices consist of a candidate endorsed by Rahm Emanuel, or Bernie Sanders, a candidate endorsed by 2.3 million contributions from American voters. For Bernie Sanders, the average campaign contribution is less than $30. At one of Emanuel's Chicago fundraising events for Clinton, admission was $2,500.
Pop singer Demi Lovato endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton Thursday night at the University of Iowa. Lovato was pretty 'Confident' in Clinton, "I truly believe there is nobody more qualified to run this country," Lovato said. But, not everyone in the U of I crowd was as 'Confident.' "All we got was I think a five minute kind of celebratory speech and that was it," said Eric Dirth, 24, an U of I law student. He was just one of many who were left with a bad taste after the night.
America has already witnessed Hillary Clinton as Senator and Secretary of State; few can name any major foreign policy accomplishments. We can, however, name mistakes. Bernie Sanders is far more qualified to be president than Clinton or Trump, especially since he's foreshadowed the consequences of perpetual wars, and doesn't focus only upon the need to destroy our enemies.
The perceived personality battle of the two Hillarys may be more real that many of us would like to believe. It is indicative of the leadership corner many female officials get painted into--in order to succeed politically women are forced to take-on masculine characteristics to survive in the political battlefield.
