Bernie would have wrecked the economy, Hillary was less likely to.  I think Trump is less likely than either of them...it may happen regardless of who won tbh, but whoever wins will get blamed.

Yes and no, he can't build a wall, he can't ban Muslims or launch nukes, but it can wreck the economy. The currency of all our trade partners, and ours, is dropping badly for example. The other shoe hasn't dropped yet, and there was a reason Asange and Putin worked so hard to get him elected. Why? They aren't doing it for no reason. There's a reason here. I mean, Trump said at one time he wanted Assange executed, but he was gung ho of getting him elected.  There's a great deal of uncertainty and unfortunately, uncertainty can wreck our economy. Or what Assange has on Trump. We saw what he did to Hillary.

With all due respect, Hillary has no one to blame but herself for the way things have unfolded. If she didn't make some major mistakes along the way, we wouldn't be in this situation.

On another forum someone pointed out an interesting stat that I missed....

In the states Clinton lost in the rust belt were all states that Bernie won in the primaries.

Once these voters found out how rigged those primaries were with the 'superdelegates', looks like they either cast a vote for Trump or stayed home.

She was a flawed candidate, but no. Just no. These things have been building for years. Trump was just as flawed. The last two weeks killed her. Wikileaks killed her. If you don't think so, I don't know what to tell you.

I think she killed herself.  If she hadn't established that she was the establishment and she will say whatever, the last two weeks would have done nothing.  She created her issues and whether the last minute stuff was accurate or not, it built off of the person she is, which is a bad person.  She did it to herself.

Yep. No one was ever going to swallow blaming Assange and Putin for Hillary's problems with a straight face. Dems thought they were but the American people have spoken on the matter.

You yourself said there was nothing new, nothing to see here. No? Now all of a sudden, it was the difference? I don't know, sounds suspect to me.
