Still receiving emails from the RNC about Benghazi.

It's never going to be a 9/11. Woodstock doesn't just happen again.

It's time to let go.

You're on the RNC's mailing list?

TLW, I am disappointed in you. So very disappointed.

Right now it's all they got against Hillary Clinton, especially now that Christie is probably out for the count.

If you're on the RNC's list, it's because they assume you're party faithful and there's a sizable number of Republican voters who want the RNC to keep on investigating this either for politics or because they fervently believe there must be something to it. The RNC is asking you for money and offering in exchange to keep on this topic so I guess the RNC will get off when there's no more money to be squeezed from it.

As for the rest of the nation, yeah, it's all about Clinton now. She'll likely run practically unopposed and the demographics look bad for Republicans in a national election.

Stop trying to make Benghazi happen.

It's not going to happen.

But he had a US marine hold an umbrella for him once, kind of like every president ever. Then there was this one time they put out a photo where he had his foot on his desk!

No really, when that is the best they can come up with, Benghazi starts looking really good.

Just imagine when HRC announces her bid and the attack ads start coming out... "Remember Benghazi!!! Hilary killed 4 Americans and tried to cover it up....Ignore all of the service members and ambassadors that were killed under Bush and focus on these 4 Americans!"

Also ignore the fact that it was the Republican house that reduced funding for embassies and the Ambassador who died himself who didn't request extra security.

The biggest "scandal" of Benghazi was that it took everyone a few days to figure out what the **** actually happened, so it looked like people were trying to cover it up when in reality they were just guessing. A hundred years ago when we were still relying on spotty telephone coverage, those extra few days of silence might have allowed people to get the facts before they started trying to report them.

Well, when you don't harp on Benghazi, this is what you're down to for trying to stop Clinton:
Political Wire wrote:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) suggested that "the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky scandal should give Americans pause when it comes to evaluating the Clinton legacy -- and, by extension, Hillary Clinton's potential presidential campaign," the Washington Post reports.

Said Paul: "One of the workplace laws and rules that I think are good is that bosses shouldn't prey on young interns in their office. And I think really the media seems to have given President Clinton a pass on this. He took advantage of a girl that was 20 years old and an intern in his office. There is no excuse for that, and it is predatory behavior."

He noted that "sometimes it's hard to separate" Bill and Hillary Clinton and then added, "And then they have the gall to stand up and say Republicans are having a war on women? So yes, I think it's a factor. It's not Hillary's fault, but it is a factor in judging Bill Clinton and history."


There ya go. 15 years ago, Bill had an affair with a 20 year old "girl" (really? "girl"?) so obviously Hillary shouldn't be president. Also, ignore all the attempts to restrict abortion rights, block equal pay legislation, prevent funding contraceptives and telling you what counts as "legitimate" rape... Lewinsky is the REAL "war on women"! Smiley: laugh

Edit: Haha.. I somehow wrote "pregnant" instead of "president" No idea if that was a spellcheck thing or a Freudian slip on my part.

At her age, Hilary probably shouldn't be pregnant. But I think she'd be a good president. Smiley: wink

Smash, why don't you think she'll get the nomination?

Well if they don't agree to worship Aqua Buddha, they're probably not mature enough to bang. Or whatever.

Bill is too much baggage. History has been unkind to his legacy as president. Apparently he's a **** of a retired president, and he still gives a good speech, but he's a severe drag on a ticket already saddled with a woman at the top. Her shot was last time, her political life is likely over. I'll be surprised if she runs, honestly.

She understands how this works, if she goes forward it'll be ego. If by some freak chance she does become the nominee, she'll be relying on the GOP circular firing squad to work again, which while their incompetence has been a boon in recent times shouldn't be relied on. There's a bit of a fight for control of the party going on at the moment, who wins that matters a lot to who the nominee will be. The Clinton faction really isn't one of the contenders, at the moment. Things change, of course, and prediction is incredibly difficult, but right now, I think her chances are very very slim of making it through the primaries.

The problem is that aside from HRC, the Dem field doesn't have much of a list of contenders. There's a small faction of the progs who want Elizabeth Warren to run, but a much larger faction who knows she'd gets slaughtered and wants her to stay in the senate. A few are fantasizing about Bernie Sanders, but the dude's officially an Independent so that will go nowhere. Biden's old and he'd end up worse than Warren in the race.

Then again, we all "knew" that Clinton would be the nominee in 2008 - and then Obama kind of came outta nowhere and swooped in to victory. Maybe we'll get another example of that in a few years.

Which is irrelevant to my point, but since you obviously want to take the discussion there, I'll bite.

False. You must remember, even though she lost, she had the popular vote (If you count all of the states). Even without them, she was in mere numbers of President Obama. If Bill is "too much baggage", she wouldn't have been nearly as close. She didn't lose because people didn't like her, she lost because people liked President Obama more.

In my recollection, she became less likeable during the primaries. She kinda went full negative there for a while. That's what I remember, six years after the fact.

I'm not as sure as Smash is that she won't run. I kinda hope she does, just to see the full-on derp-fest on the right.

I suspect she'll run and be fairly unopposed on the Democratic ticket if she does. I may be wrong on this but, two years out, I can't really pretend to care.

She didn't become less likeable as much as people were more infatuated with "candidate" Obama. After SNL did a skit on the blatant bias, she picked up enough momentum to get the popular vote.

I think Senator Clinton on Iraq hurt her in the last primaries - also Bill still seemed a philanderer in 2006/7. Now he's just a jolly old guy.

She was already winning the popular vote. In part because of her "large state" strategy and in part because she ran on the Michigan ballot uncontested due to Obama and Edwards withdrawing from the ballot after MI broke the primary rules. If you took away the MI results, she had a narrow loss in the popular vote totals.
