More Politics

Look, I already voted for Hillary Clinton once, and I wasn't happy with the way it turned out. I remember saying to somebody in 1992, "If the only way to get a smart woman into the White House is to vote for her slimy husband, I'm all for it." The next eight years were pretty good economically, and very exciting technologically, but politically they kinda sucked. Bill Clinton signed more crappy laws (DMCA, NAFTA, CDA) than I like to think about, and I remember him specifically declining to veto them, regardless of the fact he disagreed with them. Political mishandling set back progressive causes (like health care and workers rights) for more than a decade instead of moving them forward.

This is not to say I would vote for any of the people the Republicans are proposing to run, but I really would prefer to not vote for Hillary again.
