Then again, I'm not very 'progressive'.
A failure to study and understand history means that you'll make the same mistakes over and over again. Hillary for President = Hanoi Jane Fonda for President. They're friends, you know. While most of you will say, "that makes perfect sense", its seriously wrong. Her successor as SECSTATE, John (Swiftboat) Kerry is also a close personal friend of Hanoi Jane Fonda from back in the days when he was protesting the war with her.
Can you judge somebody based on their friends?
