    I'm not much for podcasts but I thought it was worthwhile.

    Except you have no idea at all whether that information was passed to her. Like I said, this particular question was so obviously going to be asked at this particular debate, I am skeptical that she was even informed that Brazile passed it along.

    If the Clinton team went to the moderators and said, "Hey, we were told there'd be a question about the Flint water crisis" the moderators would say, "duh."

    So what about the other leaked question? How many more are there?

    Both of them are all in for Hillary, because the alternative is the Donald. That's how bad he is. He turned Andrew Sullivan into a Clinton supporter.

    But don't take my word for it.

    I am aware that he is all in for Hillary. But his history is of bashing the Clintons.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Here is a question, how do we know these emails are legit? Because wikileaks is so honest?

    Why did she "resign"?

    Sure, that ones worse than the Flint question. But I still don't think getting some questions in advance is a all that big a deal as the amount of time candidates prepare all potential questions is staggering. There's no doubt in my mind that Sanders also prepared for death penalty questions.

    CNN has a major problem with their punditry. They have many employees that are still unofficially (or even officially in some cases) working for both political campaigns. I think it's time to no longer giving them debate moderating duties.

    I find it kind of funny that you're condemning Clinton for getting illicit information and that you have too much integrity to do such a thing, but you're using illegally hacked emails to do this condemnation. It's quite hypocritical.

    Did Donna email you the link beforehand!?!

    Brazile, like 99.9999999999999999999% of the world’s population, has no idea how this info was obtained. She’s not a hacker. She also has no idea what all else they have. She’s probably just praying that she will be allowed to just fade away into obscurity. Being hacked and exposed like that has to scary as F.

    I think there's a false belief that the political parties shouldn't aid their candidates of choice. Sanders is not a member of the Democratic party, so it's understandable to think that the DNC would try to steer their nomination to Clinton, a high standing party member.

    You don't exactly have to be Woodard or Bernstein to demonstrate that political parties have pulled some ****.

    An aside: No one should be happy about the Russians interfering in our election, even if it makes the Clinton's squirm. I realize this is too much for Trump, but a statesman could say as much and it would actually carry some weight. If the Trump campaign announced that it was no longer interested in using the information gleaned from Wikileaks in its campaign, Wikileaks' incentives for interfering would be significantly reduced.

    It is much less terrifying to be able to demonstrate one's stupidity unwittingly. Ignorance is bliss.

    Not only understandable; completely defensible. A political party is a vehicle for translating ideas into policy. Can't do that if you don't win, and Sanders would not win.

    Apparently the GOP didn't get the memo, but whatevs. Bygones.

    This not only illuminates Trump's lack of statesmanship, he literally solicited russian hackers to hack into her emails.

    They are both less than desirable candidates, but they aren't equally deplorable.

    Is this the lie to blind yourself from your hypocrisy? That there's a very small chance the DNC and Podesta's emails were legally obtained?

    Or are you just ruminating on the technical method in which these emails were obtained? Like... click this link to save a Nigerian Prince, Mr. Podesta.

    It wouldn't be a big deal, if everyone got them in advance. But then, what would be the point in a live debate.

    Secret insider feeding Sanders information: Hey... they are going to ask you about Clinton's email
    Sanders: Don't. ****. Care. 99% you son of a ****!

    You guys keep saying he left me at the dock... but I'm pretty sure he'll be here any moment.

    Oh, guess I missed this little snark.
    IQ alone does not make the man Hex. It's just a small part of what makes the greatness that I seek in my life. Using your intelligence like a weapon to brow beat someone in a non-confrontational discussion speaks volumes about one’s character…
