[Why Hillary should not be president] Weapons Industry Dumps Republicans, Backs Hillary

From Independent UK courtesty of Alternet:

The U.S. arms industry is backing Hillary Clinton for President and has all but abandoned its traditional allies in the Republican party. Mrs Clinton has also emerged as Wall Street's favourite. Investment bankers have opened their wallets in unprecedented numbers for the New York senator over the past three months


This week, she said that, if elected president, she would not rule out military strikes to destroy Tehran's nuclear weapons facilities.


It's clear to me, and hopefully most liberals, that Hillary is not one of us. I still refuse to accept that she's got an automatic win if she's nominated for the candidacy, I think Democrats are way too scared of NOT nominating her. Kucinich may not look like a winner, but put him in the presidential debates with the Rebublican candidate and I guarantee you a landslide. It's not going to happen though. And at this point I wouldn't be satisfied with Obama either, at least not much moreso. I guess now that the defence industry has taken their eyes off him he might not be obligated to cater to them if he gets the presidency, but he probably will anyway.

Obama and Clinton are corporate Democrats who I do not want to be president. How can people like me possibly get Kucinich where he needs to be?
