    The United States fared badly to a pandemic due to structural reasons, not because the gender of the national leader.

    I think LBJ would have done a better job than either of the last three American presidents or any of the 4 heads of government Hillary mentioned. I would venture and say that most democratically elected leaders were fairly adept at setting up technical committees and oversight groups. The reason why Trump's admin failed is because he had eroded the primary fail-safes of the executive and thus the secondary levels of government were unable to function independently of the executive and respond to the changing conditions of a national emergency with technical sound actions, instead of ideological-driven ones.

    If you want to lie to yourself by believing that Hillary lost to a Junior senator in 08 and then lost to a Reality TV host eight years later because she's a woman, be my guest.
    acket.

    I tend to agree with Mario.

    Hillary also just wasnít popular enough. She only won the popular vote Slightly because her opponent thought he can grab pussies...

    She shouldíve won by a land slide. She shouldíve won my vote.

    Given the things you've said about her in the past, and that you appear to still think she's guilty of various things that she's been investigated about time and time again with nothing to show for it, that feels like an insanely high bar.

    Without solid evidences, I have no problems presuming her innocence. I also have no problems presuming trump to be innocent, but donít expect me to love them! She couldíve pick a more progressive VP. That wouldíve been enough. VP Warren couldíve easily consolidated the progressives with the democrats.

    Her VP pick was really awesome in the eyes of progressive and conservative voters right?

    I donít know, at least to me, she clearly showed disdain not only at Deplorable trump supporters but she also didnít think much of the Bernie supporters.

    The bar really isnít that high, she just didnít bother with voters like me.

    Voters like me are such small minority that which ever way we vote, probably wonít change the outcome, especially in CA.

    Wrong. We fared badly because bad decisions were made at the executive level.
    * When Trump dismissed the virus response team
    * When they were given this information. They were briefed in January; Trump et al did; nothing.
    * When they decided to let it run it's course rather than pursue aggressive measures immediately. Masks could have been manufactured. Gloves. Cleaning solution manufacturing etc could have been ramped up.
    * Wrong information disseminated to the public.

    So yeah, a lot of wrong things that had nothing to do with our actual systems, but the fucksticks in the administration.

    Dude, your reasons are where Mario said about trump eroding the fail safes away...

    As for the systemic problem, perhaps Mario wasnít as clear... but Clearly voters had an aversion of something. Forget trump, Obama sort of ran an antiestablishment campaign. Voters dislike Ďestablishmentí or Hillary for a reason.

    People all over the world didnít just became more nationalistic for no reason. Globalism is the reason why some folks protested.

    Trump wasnít the cause, heís simply surfing the wave to the WH.

    And speaking of WH, that reminded me of WHO, that part of the system has zero trump involvement. Do you believe WHO did their job?

    That system didnít fail the worlds health just as our criminal justice system didnít fail black people right? Itís all Trumps fault?
