    I am creating this thread, because I basically view nominating Clinton vs. Trump, as being suicide by the Dems.

    Imagine the debate:

    Clinton: Mr. Trump, Trump University is a disgrace, and you need to answer for it.

    Trump: I don't need to a hear a lecture from someone who is under investigation by the FBI.
    _________________________________________________________________________

    Clinton: Mr. Trump, you have no legislative history, no experience in politics, you have not proven yourself to be competent in governing a state, city, or even the local school board.

    Trump: You were Secretary of State for years, and accomplished nothing.

    ________________________________________________________________________

    Clinton will get picked apart by Trump, she struggles with Bernie, and all he wants to talk about are the issues.

    Now imagine Bernie in a debate with Trump:

    Sanders: Mr. Trump, you say you are a deal maker, but you also say our politicians are bought and paid for, where we seem to agree on this second part, I want to know how you fix trade, how you secure the boarder, how you do anything you want to do when our system is corrupt. I have given my answer in a political revolution, what is yours?

    Trump: Some form of obfuscation, or an attack on Bernie

    Sanders: That is not an answer, or Mr. Trump, I thought you said you only attack people who attack you, you look like a bully, who has no answer right now.

    _____________________________________________________________________________

    My point here, is that Clinton's status quo politics playbook, will get destroyed by Trump. It plays right into his hands.

    Bernie's issue's based campaigning, and focus on issues over attacks, is something Trump has not had to deal with yet.

    If Trump says over and over, that it will be awesome as an answer, and Bernie is out there running on a platform, and not attacks, this seems to me to be Trump's Kryptonite. Teflon Don, might finally find himself in a sticky situation.

    Hilary can't even hang in debates with a nice old man who refuses to run a negative campaign. The Donald would rip her to shreds.

    he would probably crush bernie by saying something like he lived off government unemployment and couldnt get a job as cashier at mcdonalds in the private market while trump was employing 10s of thousands of workers building an empire

    the money hillary charges for speeches is negligent and greedy, the way she talked about gadaffi, we came , he saw , he died and laughs. was it legal for the cia to hold a lynching . her famous words what does it matter now, when talking about americans killed in libya....the president told the word, these people got upset over a cartoon mocking arabs and it was a riot......that is scary, they were almost were telling people it was somewhat justified,,,

    oh and the biggest reason, no more clinton no more bush....these 2 families have spent too much time in power....if clinton is elected it could go on 12 to 16 years under the same family.....Bush years in office would be worse...no one should want the same families in power...

    For anyone who thinks nominating Clinton makes sense, and leans left.

    Bernie supported his family for years off of a carpentry business, that no bank or daddy gave him a loan for. 3 guys, with little to no knowledge of carpentry, striking out at a small business vs Daddy's million dollar give away.

    You point to success, and Bernie will point to Trump being a silver spoon billionaire, and say......."If you think the problem is billionaires running our country, then why not just cut the middle man and elect one president."

    See what I did there, I turned a personal attack into policy issue of wealth inequality. It sounds like a personal attack on Trump, by calling him a silver spoon billionaire, and yet it has actual platform substance.

    Trump will clown Hillary, and would clown Bernie.

    And their attacks would bounce off Teflon Don, like bullets off Superman's chest.

    Expect this general election to be prime entertainment on a national scale.

    Totally disagree with TS.

    Trump becomes an unlikable monster whenever he's challenged by a woman. She'd make him look like a petulant child.

    60% of the GOP base is horrified by trump, and they won't turn out if he's nominated... unless the alternative is a socialist like Bernie.

    Trump vs. Hillary would be a landslide for Hillary.

    Trump is the best thing to happen to the Dems. He's destroying the GOP right now.

    Sanders fares better against Trump than Hillary in general election polls.

    Can you go like 2 hours without talking about Bernie? Jesus fuck man.

    I like Bernie too, but there is more to life than him.

    You guys are crazy,Hillary would beat Trump by a landslide. And her chances against him are better than Bernie's.

    Please lets not forget. Trump fans are fanatics, but everyone else hates the dude. That includes independents and moderate Democrats. Hillary would get the people that vote for Bernie anyway.

    Interesting argument, i'd like to hear more about bernie's past in detail. Trumps silver spoon will probably be bernies go to as it fits the free college agenda. That said I think the argument against billionaires will fall flat eventually, as the reality of most billionaires being made aren't from shady mortgage scams but from middle class agreeing to buy their stock through their retirement programs.
