  •  Propped Up Nixon and Bush (4+ / 0-)

    Hillary's job as researcher for the Democrats' team on impeaching Nixon led her to recommend not impeaching Nixon, leaving him "twisting in the wind" until 1976 so Ted Kennedy would have an easier campaign to follow him. She naturally expected to be part of the Kennedy campaign.

    She was fired for that blatant sacrifice of the country on her own political ambitions.

    Three decades later, as Hillary geared up to run for president herself, her close ally Speaker Pelosi took Bush's impeachment "off the table". So Hillary would have an easier campaign to follow him.

    I don't mind when politicians do the right thing for the wrong reasons, their own personal ambition/vanity/enrichment/etc. When a politician like Hillary repeatedly promotes their own ambition at the extreme sacrifice of the country's welfare, and therefore my own, I oppose them getting any more power.

    No more Clintons. No more dynasties. No more unimpeachable presidents.
