U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrives at the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) conference opening session in Dublin December 6, 2012. REUTERS/Cathal McNaughton (IRELAND - Tags: POLITICS)
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!!!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
