The streaming service is in no way responsible for the leak, it's obviously from a screener (since there is even a blurred out watermark in the corner of the screen). I would have gladly paid for the streaming service (I am 'lucky' enough to be a Cablevision customer), but fuck them for charging $15 a month for it AND making me wait a day after airing. Game of Thrones is the only show I want from HBO currently and I'm not spending $15 for a fraction of the content offered by Hulu or Netflix.

The way to remove her is through the primary election, but to do so you have to go up against your own party's leadership. All of whom have long allied with the incumbent. Even in cases where the party's nominee has no chance in the general election (such as Corzine and Buono in the last two NJ gubernatorial elections) the local party organizations won't even consider other primary contenders (who might even win the general election), so it is a huge uphill battle that requires a massive amount of money. No one who is voting for her is going to vote Republican because both parties are too far away from the center to get enough crossover.

Voting in the primaries is what is really important, there's usually an anti-establishment candidate in every party whether they be Ron Paul or Dennis Kucinich or similar. If you aren't in a "swing state" you may as well vote third party anyway. I have voted third party every presidential election I have voted in because my state always picks the one of the two top guys I would prefer regardless.
