    The DNC is full of extra ordinary women who have cut their teeth clawing in benefits for their people, and happen to have far less baggage, and would defeat Trump easily because republicans will vote for them. Hillary was being pushed in because she felt entitled, risking the oval office in the process. She wasn’t the best DNC candidate and pissed off the millennials and progressives when the DNC screwed over their Sanders movement for her sake. She could have even brought in a progressive candidate to ease the friction with the young and progressive voters, but she already made deals with the rich and powerful to fill the offices with their backed politicians. She lost because these group of voters never showed up to vote, not because America is sexist or racist but because they didn’t like her enough to push the election in her favor. The polls already suggested they would have voted for her if they were motivated enough to go through the stress of voting.
