They hardly ever talk politics

When Hillary Clinton parachuted into Los Angeles recently, some of the well-heeled donors who swarmed her brought unsolicited campaign advice, while others brought ambitions of White House appointments. Susie Tompkins Buell brought a bag of dry-roasted chickpeas.

It was fitting that Buell, a wealthy San Franciscan who ranks near the top of the sprawling national network of Clinton benefactors, was obsessing about the candidate’s nourishment. Few people in the orbit of the Clintons have done more for their care and feeding than this 73-year-old fixture of Bay Area philanthropy and salon society who wanted nothing to do with politics — she didn’t even vote — until a chance meeting with Bill Clinton well into her adult life.

"They talked about the crushing poverty Clinton had seen on the campaign trail, Buell recalled, “and how much people were relying on government. I really wanted a president who would look out for them.”

And there folks, is the Utopian, Tinker Bell mindset, that regards government as the Nation's Nanny and thinks that the government is the end all and be all of life.

Total BS and the Clintons haven't done anything for the poor.

That makes this woman...my enemy!

I have many hobbies. But anyone who supports a Clinton, and liberalism, is an enemy of mine.

Trump supported Clinton as well as many liberal causes.
Are you voting third party this time around then?

Perhaps they think the Constitution provides for the common defense and promotes general welfare.

You apparently forgot how Trump supported Clinton, and was such good friends with her.
