Management of the State Department during which time we saw a 50 percent increase in exports to China, aggressive work on climate (particularly at Copenhagen), and the effort to create and implement the toughest sanctions ever on Iran -- helping to lead us to the agreement currently on the table.

You don't look at just what happened during her 4 years as SS but at the groundwork she laid for the foreign policy successes during our President's second term. Probably her biggest accomplishment was removing America's international reputation from the toilet following eight years of the Bush mistake.

The problem with the Berners is that you somehow think he invented populism, and that somehow only he has progressive ideas. She has been hitting these points since she first announced, before Sanders got into the race. You are so quick to jump on the Faux bubble heads for their stupidity, but you are no better. You are regurgitating Reich wing lies and propaganda about Hillary Clinton from the past 25 years.

She has been hitting these points since at least July of 2015. time.com

The argument against Sanders was not that his ideas weren't great, but that he never said how he was going to accomplish them without blowing up the national debt. Hillary's ideas, although less grand, always had a path that would not balloon the debt.

Two things:

First, H.A. Goodman? Lol, now that's rich. Biggest hack in all of the liberal blogesphere. One of the biggest Bernie or Busters out there. He's been praying for the FBI to arrest Hillary so Bernie can overcome the will of Democratic voters and steal the election, since that's the only chance he has left. He's Salon's version of a lefty Alex Jones! Because he has been so incredibly, blatently partisan, his analysis means less than nothing. Find me even one blog post where he says something even remotely nice about Hillary. Hr is blinded by HDS.

Second, yes she pushed TPP when she was a member of the administration, before the negotiations were finalized. As a member of the administration, she was expected to tow the company line. The hope was that it would fix some of the failings of NAFTA. I haven't read it, but the analysis I've read concerns me. Since the final deal has been made public, Hillary is now against it too. It wold have been stupid to be against it before negotiations were complete. We live in a global marketplace, get used to it.

I don't blame the Obama administration for trying to sew up a trade deal with Asia. It's a massive emerging market, and if we don't move on it, China will block us out. Those manufacturing jobs that went away with NAFTA were going to go anyway, and they are not coming back. Studies show that Americans will not spend extra for products made in America. When given a choice between cheap and Chinese or more expensive and American, US consumers choose cheap. The only people who would be hurt by high terifs on imports would be American consumers. The cheap Chinese products will contunue to sell well everywhere else in the world.

So your only point against Hillary is TPP, WHERE HER POSITION IS THE SAME AS BERNIE'S, and the rantings of an insane Bernie Bro blogger? Wow, try expanding your reading horizons!
