  • 1994 universial health care bill. Yeah we all knows about it. Tended to call it as "the Hillary before being corrupted by insurance company lobby money and declare universal healthcare will never happen in America". I guess the "Bernie bro" above hit his head after primary and gone amnesia about the 2nd part
  • Lybia? No progressive care about Republican Benghazi drilling. What we cared about is is why there are 4 deaths American, hundred thousands of brown one, and ISIS training camps in Lybia right now? In fact why Chris Stevens was there if not to funnel the weapons in Lybia to "Syrian radical rebel" aka ISIS group? Dd she even learn the Iraq lesson?
  • etc

If you try to go with the "I know you care about these issues", then at least get the damn issues right first.
Forcing down your throat? Jesus dude, he's merely expressing how and why he came around to supporting Clinton more enthusiastically after admitting he was basically a Bernie bro who hated her. There were many good details provided concerning her record (You know the stuff she ACTUALLY does, not what she says or others say about her). He never absolved her of some the more glaring mistakes. You also can't seem to read as the article said:

"Perhaps Clinton's greatest blemish on her record is the destabilizing of Libya, which led to the Benghazi diplomatic compound attack. Certainly, it was one of the career bullet points that made me despise her. "

As for your health care point, then Obama is a sell-out too. And guess what? He's not hated with the same vitriol on the Bernie wing of the DNC (Except for the more extreme Stein supporters). I think you have to acknowledge the sheer amount of character assassination she has had to endure in politics for the last 25 years. No one in public service in the US in recent times comes even close to the level of scrutiny she had to endure. The right wing sure has done a fantastic job that's for sure.
