There are a lot of questions swirling around regarding Hillary Clinton these days. The latest cover of Time Magazine has drawn a lot of attention because it appears to put horns on the silhouette of Hillary Clinton, begging the question was it deliberate or simply an unfortunate error by the graphic artist that created the cover? Did Hillary sign a separation form when she left the State Department? What was in the 30,000+ emails she deleted, and can they be recovered? Was the server used for her private email service secure, and what about her Blackberry?
These are just a few of the many questions that resulted from the press conference she held hoping to put the email scandal to rest. Obviously the old Clinton magic has worn off. As soon as she finished speaking it became apparent that her old allies in the media were not going to help her, and soon thereafter she discovered that the Obama administration was going to leave her twisting in the wind. Rather than making the scandal go away, her press conference has even her former allies speculating on the possibility of criminal violations.
I must say I’m not particularly surprised by any of this. The bad blood between the Clintons and the Obamas has never been a secret, and both sides are equally capable of collecting and using dirt on their political enemies. Considering who we’re talking about, you can rest assured there is plenty of dirt to find. It will be very interesting to see how Hillary retaliates against Obama for this.
With all the questions people are asking however, there is some basic questions everyone in America needs to ask themselves. Regardless of how secure her server was, what was contained in the emails she deleted, or how she will retaliate against Obama, every registered voter in America should be asking themselves if they really want 4 years of Hillary Clinton in the White House?
Let’s face it, what does she actually bring to the table? Has she offered up a single plan to fix any of the problems the country faces? Can she point to a single accomplishment during either her term as Senator or Secretary of State? Does anything about her inspire people or make them optimistic about the future? Even the people who think her husband’s time in office was good for America have to admit that she possesses none of the qualities that made Bill likeable. I remember people talking about how young and good looking Bill was, but that ship has clearly sailed for Hillary. At this point her one selling point would be that she would become America’s first woman President, but there are many women who could fill that role without bringing along the baggage that comes with Hillary.
