Why? Because Kamala is WAY smarter than Hillary. Hillary in just too cunning and conniving. Kamala wants to do good in the world - but she isn't showing that side of herself right now, unfortunately.

I've never gotten the "wants to do good for the world" vibe from Hillary.

I don't think many have gotten good vibes from Hillary. You used the words cunning and conniving for Hillary. Independents used words like elitist, aloof, fake. She was also lazy. Trump both out campaigned her and out worked her. Trump made 116 campaign visits, stops, appearances, etc to Hillary's 71. That 71 looks bigger than what it was as it includes fund raisers in deep blue California and New York.

Deciding states, Wisconsin, Trump 5 visits, Hillary none. Michigan, Trump 6 campaign stops, Hillary 1. Pennsylvania, Trump 8, Hillary 5 and even in electoral rich Florida, Trump 13 trips to Hillary's 8. There's much more to 2016 and Trump's victory, this is only one thing out of many.

My personal opinion is that Hillary thought she deserved the presidency and hence, didn't do what was needed to win. I believe had she gave it the old college try, she would have won. But that's just my opinion. She also had one of the most inept campaign strategies I have ever seen. Such is life.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
