Three more?  That's a lot of reading.......

Hopefully they'll be worth everyone's time. I'll try to get caught up on these soon, but I've got a lot of work to do for the next month or so.

That plus three enormous final essays. I also might be getting some big news soon. But I won't jinx it.

Good idea.  Good luck on the finals - I always hated finals week.

I remember the time you wrote a Quora answer in response to a Black Panther question stating the main thing Marvel fans watch them for is explosions. When I looked at your profile recently, it wasn't there. Just how bad was the backlash?

I vaguely remember that. But as I'm sure you know, I never delete anything due to backlash-- I delete things because they don't provoke enough of a backlash. I think that question was dying down when I wrote that answer, so it got a measly five upvotes and I dumped it.

Does your latest answer count as well? It got so much of a response yesterday I didn't have time to read it all at the time. Today, I refresh, and I get this:

Actually, I deleted that because I realized it could jeopardize my internship at that congressional office. Can't go around online telling Trump supporters they're retards when you're working in government, even if it's in a very minor capacity.

She sure acts like it - campaigning all over, passing blame to everyone but herself, and not doing any government work - it's a very governmentesque life she's living.

I don't think any other presidential candidate in history has disappeared off the face of the Earth as quickly as she has. The only people who still bring her up these days are Trump supporters.

One of those is about her endorsing Cuomo against a retarded actress. Everyone else in the establishment has done the same. The second one literally says "The couple has been largely absent from the 2018 midterm campaigns," as if to prove my point.

The other two are about the exact same story.

Clinton is still news because people want to hear about her. But the people who want to hear about her aren't Democrats. They're Trumpeters who are still beating that dead horse.

Again, these are LIBERAL sites writing articles about her.  Being the exact same story, but 2 liberal sites posting them, is still to my point.  You said "The only people who still bring her up these days are Trump supporters."  And these are literally liberal sites constantly "bringing her up".

Here's more:

https://www.inc.com/eric-mack/hillary-clinton-just-gave-master-classes-in-both-emotional-intelligence-trolling-in-a-single-speech.html

She continues to put herself in the spotlight because she has NO interest in going away.  And the liberal sites (and often the conservative sites) post story after story about her.  So to say only Trump supporters have interest in her is at best misleading and at worst completely false.

I guess I just don't know what you expected of a former presidential candidate. You would have to go back decades before you found a candidate who vanished the way she did. She's given a few speeches, but she holds no official capacity in any way. Her current title is that of "key person" at this thing, which is hardly an influential position.

You do realize that her political career is done, right? Goldwater, Dukakis, McCain, and Romney-- hell, even Mondale-- all continued to hold various offices after their defeats. If Clinton is elected dog catcher somewhere in 2020, I'll take the L on this one (as Paasche would say).

I do think her political career is done - most likely.  Though I still think she holds out hope to "get back in the game" despite what she says.  I would say that Walter Mondale disappeared more quickly though - he was gone in a flash whereas Clinton still lingers around (as she's about to start "helping" the Dems in the midterms).  He resurfaced years later, but after that '84 election he just fell off the map.

I think there's a bit of a difference there in that Mondale got absolutely blown out by Reagan that election, whereas Hillary was really close to beating Trump. Anyway, I think Diego's point isn't so much on media focus as it is on the fact that she stepped way back after losing; she holds basically no positions, appears to have no intention of running for anything, etc.

That's not what we were discussing though.  We were just talking about presidential candidates that lost - the margin of defeat wasn't pertinent.  And my point was that Mondale immediately disappeared completely whereas Hillary is still lingering around and we get something new from her every day.  I mean, this is just from a few hours ago and on Yahoo home page.  She hasn't gone away at all - she's just not holding any political position - but she very much still has her hands in all of this.

Clinton is still news because people want to hear about her. But the people who want to hear about her aren't Democrats. They're Trumpeters who are still beating that dead horse.

Again, these are LIBERAL sites writing articles about her.  Being the exact same story, but 2 liberal sites posting them, is still to my point.  You said "The only people who still bring her up these days are Trump supporters."  And these are literally liberal sites constantly "bringing her up".

Here's more:

https://www.inc.com/eric-mack/hillary-clinton-just-gave-master-classes-in-both-emotional-intelligence-trolling-in-a-single-speech.html

She continues to put herself in the spotlight because she has NO interest in going away.  And the liberal sites (and often the conservative sites) post story after story about her.  So to say only Trump supporters have interest in her is at best misleading and at worst completely false.

I guess I just don't know what you expected of a former presidential candidate. You would have to go back decades before you found a candidate who vanished the way she did. She's given a few speeches, but she holds no official capacity in any way. Her current title is that of "key person" at this thing, which is hardly an influential position.

You do realize that her political career is done, right? Goldwater, Dukakis, McCain, and Romney-- hell, even Mondale-- all continued to hold various offices after their defeats. If Clinton is elected dog catcher somewhere in 2020, I'll take the L on this one (as Paasche would say).

I do think her political career is done - most likely.  Though I still think she holds out hope to "get back in the game" despite what she says.  I would say that Walter Mondale disappeared more quickly though - he was gone in a flash whereas Clinton still lingers around (as she's about to start "helping" the Dems in the midterms).  He resurfaced years later, but after that '84 election he just fell off the map.
I think there's a bit of a difference there in that Mondale got absolutely blown out by Reagan that election, whereas Hillary was really close to beating Trump. Anyway, I think Diego's point isn't so much on media focus as it is on the fact that she stepped way back after losing; she holds basically no positions, appears to have no intention of running for anything, etc.

That's not what we were discussing though.  We were just talking about presidential candidates that lost - the margin of defeat wasn't pertinent.  And my point was that Mondale immediately disappeared completely whereas Hillary is still lingering around and we get something new from her every day.  I mean, this is just from a few hours ago and on Yahoo home page.  She hasn't gone away at all - she's just not holding any political position - but she very much still has her hands in all of this.

I mean, I also mentioned two candidates who lost. I'm just saying that the margin of victory is pertinent. As for Mondale completely disappearing whereas Hillary has stayed in the public eye a little bit, I'd say that's entirely due to them being from different eras and the prevalence of the internet. Furthermore, as I alluded to before, Hillary Clinton herself has stepped way back (ie. not running for office or anything). Media attention is irrelevant to that.

Does your latest answer count as well? It got so much of a response yesterday I didn't have time to read it all at the time. Today, I refresh, and I get this:

Actually, I deleted that because I realized it could jeopardize my internship at that congressional office. Can't go around online telling Trump supporters they're retards when you're working in government, even if it's in a very minor capacity.

Why not?  Hillary did...

And she's not working in government anymore...

She sure acts like it - campaigning all over, passing blame to everyone but herself, and not doing any government work - it's a very governmentesque life she's living.

 The only people who still bring her up these days are Trump supporters.



Ummm...all from liberal sites in the past few days...

I said "even Mondale" because he lost 49 states. Clinton won the popular vote, and she's still disappeared more than Kerry, McCain, or Romney did.
