Thanks Dandelion. I also read where many of her donors also gave to Jeb Bush.

Hillary Clinton has an estimated net worth of $21.5 million. (therichest.com)
Not bad, all I could need is $100,000... : ~ (

If Hillary doesn't straighten up and fly right, her candidacy is done.

The worrying aspect about all this circulation of funds, which runs into tens, if not hundreds of millions of dollars, is the amount of money wasted. . . which could be better spent on more worthwhile causes. . .

THIS may also have got largely forgotten: In 2008, Clinton was quoted saying, “I want the Iranians to know that if I’m president, we will attack Iran… we would be able to totally obliterate them.”

Hillary Clinton is wealthy enough and should not even accept this money. Instead of wasting all this voting money there could be so much good done for all the suffering people on our planet.
Thanks.

Noted. Thanks, Dandelion.
I kind of feel sorry for her. The game has changed, and she is sticking with the "old program." She is going to watch Bernie catch up to her and surpass her, while she's left in the dust of the past.

Way too many people won't care where candidates get their money...political affiliation is more important. Clinton is just another non-acting, rhetoric-spouting same old, same old...

You might as well spell it out: she is a LIER.

I hear what you say about Hillary not catching on to what the people are pushing for Lois, I do agree there. But I'm not feeling sorry for her, these Corporate Hawks haven't felt very sorry for many of us, so I'm afraid I just can't go there. She wouldn't even be sounding as progressive as she is except when she saw Bernie Sanders gaining the ground, she has upped her talk, but to me that is all it is.......he has the pulse of the people, she just pretends she does.

Thanks Angelika for the reminder about why some of us call her a Hawk.

Clinton, Bush.....not a whole lot of differences other than their gender and the fact that Hillary is a very smart women while Jeb is just a light-bulb watt or two above his moronic brother Dubya..but when it comes to policy making they are both Corporate whores all the way.

Lets hope Bernie gets to run against Trump...Trump,who is the clear voice of the Republican InsaniTea mindset over all. He just says it out loud and up close and personal unlike his spineless and by far creepier slithering opponents in their race for the Republican nomination.

Media picks are Jeb and Hillary, of which either would be a win for the GOP and the worst possible choices for the American people , i.m.o. Bernie and or Biden are the only persons on either side that are in touch with the people, on all sides. .... I think Bernie has fought the hardest of all when it comes to a better life for the masses and not just.... the few at the very top of the economic ladder...that the entire GOP fight for and bow to on a daily basis....i.m.o.

I'm guessing that the media this round is in for a big surprise and the surprising reality of just how little power they actually have over the election process this time. The more they bash Trump the more popular he becomes within the GOP supporters...and rightfully so i.m.o. He is their most honest candidate running when it comes to saying what the party really stands for ....fear mongering/wars/hate/greed and above all else..racism as the fast track to GOP supporter popularity .

The two of them are consumed by their insider/corporate status and that is their biggest drawback on either side I think. Both....All corporate wrapped in dollars and color coded, so ta say.

I was never a fan of Hillary - I have referred to her by quite a few names, some of which really shouldn't appear on Care2. ;) Now I like her even less! She is mostly ambition. Bernie Sanders at least has an agenda - a big and grandiose one, sure, but at least he has his thinking cap on.

This doesn't surprise me in the least, nothing she does would. I have no respect for this woman

Politics would be more acceptable without the huge money involved for lobbying.Such money could be put to better use.

She is determined, so Hillary will go for the gold! Only hope she doesn't win it! We need a better person, like Bernie. thx

The corporate media seem to be counting on a win by Hillary, and she's kissing the right behinds. I feel pretty apprehensive about it. The media are some of the biggest moneymakers in all of this.

Add this to the list of reasons why I will never vote for Hillary. Thanks for posting, Sheryl!

Yes---and now that it is Oct. 4, I was saddened to watch the 40th anniversary Saturday Night Live Show, then they ran a May 2012 show, Mick Jagger host. Then a new show, Miley Cyrus host---and Hillary Clinton did a guest shot, playing Vera, the bartender--to cast member playing her. The ads that ran for politics were her's. The only mention of Bernie Sanders was to flash a picture and call him The Lorax. I note that all but one late night show is heavy on Trump, jokes and off-handed remarks. Hillary comes in 2nd. They rarely mention Bernie, and it's always negative. Then, there's Stephen Colbert. He had Bernie on. He makes it clear, though understated, he's supporting him. I see he let Bernie's site use a photo of the visit to tout the "Feel The Bern" mug. Hillary has the Democratic Party very strongly supporting her, blocking Sanders. They've scheduled, I believe only 4 debates also, as Hillary, their little pet, will not come off well. For one thing, she's not the "real deal", and that will be amplified next to him. 2nd, she is not a warm, passionate personality. Lately, she's een pressing her automaton button, trying. She's a lousy actress. I can't say she isn't dedicated, but, mixed into that is that she is bought and no doubt thinks of it as part of the game of being a down and dirty politician. She was raised by politicians and that's been her life. Hard to not play dirty and allow yourself to be bought---as it takes most of the time and energies for a poor fellow who won't, to get heard at all. She lacks Bernie's burning, passionate dedication, convictions. Her's are mostly the wish to win for power, prestige, inner satisfaction, and to get a few pet projects passed. Bernie wants huge things for the world's "We The People", like peace, address in earnest the environmental issues, climate change etc.. He wants freedoms, rights, liberties, in essence the return of a true democracy, restored and honored. He wants all races, religions, genders, to have equal rights, pay, opportunity. He wants to correct several systems, prison, economical, tax, voting, women's rights, on and on. Hillary is a mix. Mostly, she says what she thinks the voters want to hear. I don't say she doesn't have some redeeming issues she'd fight for. I am comparing her to Bernie. The media is having fun, making him out to be the wild man of Borneo. Showing pics with his hair at it's wildest, clips of him at his most passionate. Hillary buys a great promo team that softens her image, yet, during interviews she goes into auto-mode as I mentioned above, sort of emulating Bernie. It isn't as cut and dry as Bernie appealing to me because he does a mean fandango and she can't even do the cha-cha. It's like he was born with natural rhythm and a drive and need to dance---and she can barely tap her foot in time and has no fiery need to get up and put a rose between her teeth and do a wild tango. There's a comparison politically, and it's rather like that---Bernie gets the trophy. I just hope money doesn't wrest the trophy from him and hand it to Hillary---because she'd take it tif it has to be won that way--- Bernie wouldn't. Thanks Dandelion.

Oh--and I mentioned Bernie wants to get rid of private prisons, reform the entire prison system. Also, as I mentioned, doesn't take money from huge corporations. On the other hand---there's Hillary using both as lobbyists to win the campaign---and knows the game. You must pay back the favor. Also, she's made it clear, she'd love to finish off Iran---obliterate Iran. Lovely.Just the kind of girl you'd like to bring home to mother. Her spirit is in the wrong place, for the wrong reasons. Bernie's a natural, with his heart and soul entering into his thoughts, and therefore his deeds. He asks himself, what can he do for mankind and Earth, to heal and bring peace?
