    since his first moments on the national stage.

    If anyone has the stomach for reliving this travesty, please read  "The Hunting of the President: The Ten-Year Campaign to Destroy Bill and Hillary Clinton" by Gene Lyons and Joe Conason.

    It's the Supreme Court, stupid!

      for providing me with a source I was not aware of. But it is something I have seen with my own eyes and have greatly admired the Clintons for even surviving let alone thriving through.

      And what makes this even more stupid is that Hillary Clinton actually ended the terrible tendency in this country of competent and caring politicians having their careers ended by simply being caught having an extra marital affair. That had become the new norm prior to their campaign and Bill Clinton went into that campaign with a tun of that baggage which should have automatically eliminated him.

      Which it would have if Hillary had not directly confronted that with the most memorable political statements I've ever heard. And that was when she said "Yes I am very much aware of the allegations of my husband's infidelity. And we have worked through that. And its no longer a problem for me but if it is for you, then heck don't vote for him." And ever since then sex has been taken away as a single cheap shot means of ending political careers.
