I imagine at some point a politician in this day and age, with perhaps the weakest press corps known to man, realizes they can do anything short of murder in broad day light and get away it, as long as they can push the right emotional buttons in the people that vote for them.
They stop worrying about getting caught and just start enjoying the champagne, cigars, and caviar; a little smooze here, a little quiet payoff there, nothing to lose sleep over.
You may have seen that Hillary Clinton is running for president and I am sure you are shocked. About six weeks have passed since the email scandal broke, and the general public is starting to lose interest.
Hillary is going to run for the little people this time, by the way, the disenfranchised folks, the ones who have had it tough.
I ran a very unscientific poll on my Facebook page and it seems as if democrats don not want to look too closely at their presidential candidates; I know you are shocked again.
It may also not be a shock that Democrats and Republicans in this country, with the help of a media that has nothing better to do than stir up drama, have learned to hate each other with passion. Hate of Republican’s alone is going to get Hillary half her votes.
A friend of mine summed up Hillary and the Clintons with one word: cunning. It fits most politicians these days, and maybe since the beginning of time.
This email thing, I guarantee you, did not catch Clinton by surprise. Her team researched the laws on this for weeks I imagine before they decided they could get away with setting up a private email, then deleting anything that may have got them in trouble.
