We might have had a horse race, I agree. But the nomination is hard for somebody like Christie to get.

Now it'll just be a dog race.

Ok it was a cheap shot but it was just begging for it.

You know, honestly, I don't think the dog was in danger whatsoever. And a whole lot safer than THIS idea;

By the way, I do not support any political figure in the public eye right now. So I have no idea what you are talking about.
I don't think you really believe that Hilary, among all others, has, in private, a more abrasive personality or potty mouth than dozens of prominent political leaders that I'm sure you don't like very much, but somehow don't hate "with the intensity of a thousand suns".

Nothing you've described as a reason truly sets her apart from her fellow politicians, even the ones that enjoy similar influence. So I'm thinking it's got to be something different.

Seems to me most of her anger was directed at staff that have to be around her nearly every waking moment. When you are around someone that much you are going to say things that are mean. Hell I love my dad but because we have lived together so much I've said some things during heated moments I'd like to take back.
