At her age no doubt that she was raised an F.D.R. democrat, and experienced his presidency first hand. From the Great Depression and WWII, and that was followed on by another strong democrat Truman.
However, those types of democrats do not generally exist these days, since the 1960's the party has become what you mockingly describe as "Hippy, cop hating", but I do not you left out pot smoking.
And those teenagers who started to change the party back in the 1960's are now turning into the senior statesmen for it. Remember that the generation who grew up in the 1960's greatest achievement was crashing the gates at a rock concert in New York. Which is by definition a pathetic generational highpoint, as opposed to their parents that won a world war, and the current generation, who have/or are in the process of liberating the people of three countries, and fighting terrorism.
Hopefully when some of today's generation, who reject the ideas of the 1960's start gaining some of the leadership positions in the democratic party, then we will start seeing the party return from the far left position it now occupies.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
