To the surprise of mostly no one, Hillary Rodham Clinton has locked up public support from half the Democratic Party insiders who get to cast ballots at the party’s national convention. Clinton has been the presumptive favorite to win the Democratic nomination, since about 2008. The Associated Press contacted all 712 people known as superdelegates, and more than 80 percent responded.
Clinton got endorsements from 359, while Sanders was endorsed by eight. Two superdelegates supported O’Malley, and the rest were uncommitted.
Can this all change? Well of course it could, but its not likely.
Clinton skated through the Benghazi hearing, none the worse for wear. The FBI is stepping up an investigation and expanding its probe of Hillary Clinton’s emails exploring whether multiple statements violate a federal false statements statute.A large majority of voters believe Hillary Clinton did something either unethical or illegal in her use of a private email system for government business, according to a new McClatchy-Marist Poll. A total of 68 percent believe that what she did was wrong. This is also a non-issue at this point.
Clinton said at an event this week that she once considered becoming a Marine, but a recruiter turned her away because of her age, gender and poor eyesight.
“You’re too old, you can’t see and you’re a woman,” Clinton said in 1994
“We won’t attempt to dispute the first lady’s recollection,” a Marine Corps spokesman said then. “But if she was ill-treated by a Marine recruiter in 1975, it certainly is unfortunate, unprofessional and a mistake we regret.”
According to a report, Clinton will attempt to make herself appear popular and much loved during and after next week’s Democratic presidential candidate debate by seeding Twitter with an astroturfing campaign of volunteers coached on exactly what to say.
Clinton has a unique ability to speak in half truths, kind of like husband Bill and supporters don’t seem to care. And so it goes.
