  •  Wonderful saying by Lincoln (1+ / 0-)

    "Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you
    want to test a man's character, give him power."

    Hillary is failing the power test. It's about
    character.

    In the Senate, where she has only a modicum of
    power, she behaves herself (more or less).

    But now, with fewer constraints on her actions,
    where she has the power and calls the shots in
    her campaign, we see hints of her true self.

    Imagine what she would stoop to as
    President; with more power and fewer constraints,
    with little other than her moral compass (don't
    laugh) to restrain her, and Bill egging her on
    from the sidelines.

    I want someone extraordinary as President: grace,
    intelligence, talent, judgement, wisdom, integrity.

    Above all, that person must pass the power
    test.

    Obama: high distinction.

    Clinton: failure.
