Despite the recent Republican shrieking about Benghazi and 1990s-era blow jobs, Hillary Clinton remains very popular:
A majority of Americans, 59 percent, view Clinton favorably, compared with 37 percent who view her unfavorably, according to a Gallup poll released Friday.
That represents a slight decline from her numbers as secretary of state, but you'd expect that as talk about her shifts to be almost exclusively political. But 59 percent approval for a potential presidential candidate who has been targeted by literally decades of attacks? That's high. Which doubtless explains the desperation behind the latest attacks. You don't bring up the potential candidate's husband's 20-year-old sex scandals if you think you've got anything better, or a chance otherwise. Hillary Clinton hasn't announced she's running and already Republicans are backed into a corner, terrified.

So, obviously, BENGHAZI!!!!
