Remember that Hillary thought that she was a shoe-in back on 2008 for the Democratic Presidential nod, but the upstart Obama came out of nowhere to grab her crown and while she enjoyed ransacking the State Department, that was just an appetizer for her political appetite.
She has been assumed once again to be the heir apparent to the White House, but troublesome things haunt her path, such as Benghazi, plus a very new alarming scandal which has linkage to Benghazi but is much broader in timeframe. You see, it has leaked out that Hillary conducted all of her email business as Secretary of State using her Chappaqua home account.
You heard it right. As an easy and effective way to keep from having records maintained by the government as required by law, she used a private account over her own server at her home. Not only does this have implications for Benghazi, but it brings to mind the distinct possibility of law violation as well as susceptibility to hacking. And if any of her correspondence involved classified government material, she could be prosecuted under national security laws. After all, General David Petraeus was today found guilty of having possession of classified material in his home, a clear legal violation, yet there was no evidence that he was actually transmitting any of that material, he just was holding it. Hillary might very well have been using it in transmissions, a serious problem which could even bring serious jail time if proved.
But then again, Hillary has a track record of issues which appear serious but from which she has escaped over the years. She had direct connection to the Vince Foster murder case, was investigated in the Whitewater land deal in Arkansas, was involved in the Billy Dale Travelgate prosecution after she removed the career employee who was later found innocent, and finally, she managed the Bimbo Eruption scandal relative to Bill's sexual escapades which trashed innocent women. And this doesn't even talk about her work as Secretary of State and the Benghazi disaster.
So why is the email information now coming out and who is releasing it? Likely it is a political interest within the Democratic sphere who wants to put a halt on her second and likely final chance to run for President. And while I have no sympathy for Hillary and certainly think she would be a disaster of the Obama variety if elected, if this opens an opportunity for Elizabeth Warren, the American Indian wannabe, we would be in even worse hands.
We'll just have to watch to see how this plays out and it is probably a good bet to figure she'll slide by on this scandal as well. After all, she's one half of the Clinton team and the Clintons always slide by. And while they are sliding, they continue to roll in the dough by delivering boring speeches for huge fees in a country which has so many suffering economically. But folks, that's just the way things go with the Clintons and it is likely not to change, at least not on this earth. Why do you think they call him "Slick Willy" and why do you think they've stayed married through it all? They've mastered the art of masquerade and it's just the way things go.
Love 'em or hate 'em, you have to give 'em credit; they are the masters of working the system. And it looks like a lot of Americans admire their craft. That's truly said but, oh well, the world just keeps on turning.
