Hillary is the candidate of choice for the establishment and directly on the payroll of big-business lobby interests. Trump, although not at true populist, is still an outsider candidate, mostly self-funded and feared by the establishment.
A Hillary victory rewards and justifies election rigging, no correction for the Democratic party.
Clinton’s re-election campaign. Hillary is an 8 year commitment that will be up for re-election in 2020 against yet another Republican. A Trump presidency makes 2020 another chance to elect a better Democrat than Hillary.
The entire House of Representatives and 33/100 Senate seats are up for re-election in 2018. Hillary guarantees they stay Republican just like under Obama. ‘Sanders Democrats’ running for office have a better chance to rise during a Trump presidency than Hillary. Trump forces the Democratic party to become more progressive more quickly.
Trump is to the left of Hillary on foreign policy. Hillary, a bigger war hawk than Trump, is the candidate of choice for the military industrial complex. Clinton’s record on foreign policy is not a good one.
Trump is to the left of Hillary on trade and has always been against destructive trade deals like TPP. Hillary called TPP the “gold standard” and has supported every trade deal since NAFTA.
Trump has repeatedly said he won’t touch Social Security. If truthful, he is a welcome leftward push for the Republican party. Hillary is another Obama, and Obama tried to cut Social Security using the Chained-CPI under the guise of it being merely an adjustment.
“They should have run Sanders, they lost because of Clinton.” -vs- “America just isn’t ready for Sanders Socialism.. Hillary was the pragmatic, correct choice.” We want people to think the former, not the latter.
A Hillary win means the progressive vote will continue to be taken for granted. Bernie or Bust support will be laughed at if Hillary wins.
If Trump loses to Clinton, the Republicans go back to being the party of George W. Bush and Mitt Romney. The populist uprising will be defeated on both sides of the aisle by establishment hero Hillary Clinton.
A Clinton loss means an end to the Clinton/Bush era.
President Hillary Clinton will spend the next 8 years marginalizing and purging anything to do with Bernie Sanders from the party, as the DNC survives under her leadership. A Trump victory means the Democratic party becomes progressive fast, or dies.
