    Hillary has never had real scandal. She's just taken a few cheap shots, which have made her more resilient.

    A wide open private e-mail server at home with classified documents on it would have gotten a typical government employee serious prison time months ago. This sort of thing is usually no laughing matter. It is amazing. If you think it is ok it means you also think some are above the law and others aren't.

    In case you have forgotten - here are a few reminders:

    I think Obama 's high corruption standard will be tough to beat. Trump won't be able to entice women like Sebelius or Lerner to lie cheat and steal for him. I don't see him getting away with Welfare for Wall Street or "I will work around congress" .

    Sounds like you're for big government and don't trust the private sector, at least when it's convenient to your argument...icon_rolleyes.gif

    Think about it. The government ( according to GOP pundits) can't run a healthcare site, let alone defend itself against being hacked. I would think republiclunks would stand by Fiorina or Trump if they said private email was more secure than government servers... Which is why this "scandal" just looks like hot air.

    I will never forgive Obama for telling the lie that he would not appoint any lobbyist and that his administration would "not be business as usual."

    Fast forward 7 years, it was all just Washington establishment business as usual. He has appointed nearly a hundred lobbyists to key positions, bailed out wall street without breaking up the banks and without reinstating glass-steagall, and to top it all off: zero push for campaign finance reform and did not even try for public universal healthcare. The two issues are intertwined considering how influential big pharma, insurance companies, and healthcare providers are in Washington due to, you guessed it, lobbying and campaign finance.

    Now don't get me wrong, in my opinion, Obama was a better option than the other guy... Mitt Romney, which would have been utterly horrid. But it does not change how disappointed liberals are that he promised "change" and we got 8 years of super-establishment politics.
