“The use of a rope line at a New Hampshire parade is a sad joke..."

Campaign aides for Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton on Saturday roped off reporters from the candidate as she walked and talked with potential voters during a July Fourth parade in New Hampshire, sparking frustration from the press corps and outrage from the state Republican Party.

Reporters were reportedly allowed to get close to Clinton but were later herded away by campaign aides concerned about crowd control.

Just changed my status to Democrat so that I can vote for Bernie Sanders in the primary. He is poling well and with any luck he will knock her out in the first round.

I've been a registered Democrat for over 30 years here in Delaware. I vote in every Democratic primary, exactly for the same reason as yourself 9:49 am. It hasn't worked so far, but the closet Republican in me believes it might help some day? In the upcoming Presidential elections? Top to bottom, straight Republican, no one else will be considered for any reason!

If she thinks she's too damn good to get out there with the people and walk among them, then she needs to take herself on home and lock herself in her house and stay there. This United States does not need her, never have, never will.
