During his 1992 campaign for the presidency, Bill Clinton was
fond of promising America, You get two for the price of one,
indicating Hillary Clinton would act as his co-president.
But the nation got much more than it bargained for, as the top
power couple brought a load of baggage with them into the White
House from their days in Arkansas.
After the Clintons moved into the presidential mansion, the
political scandals multiplied from use of the IRS and FBI to
target political opponents to stalking and harassing subjects of
Bill Clintons sexual advances and even attempts to loot
taxpayer-funded items from the White House. Americans also
witnessed capers such as Travelgate, Chinagate, Filegate and
Bill Clintons sexual escapades and subsequent impeachment by
the U.S. House of Representatives on charges of perjury and
obstruction of justice consumed more than a year of American
public life and bitterly divided the nation.
In the years since the memorable Clinton presidency, Hillary has
brought America Emailgate and the Benghazi scandal, among
others. New developments in the Clinton Foundation scandals
emerges almost daily.
Now, its Hillarys turn to be president, according to her
But in 2015, America is still apparently suffering from Clinton
fatigue. Results from a Quinnipiac poll published in April
revealed between 49 and 56 percent of voters in three
significant swing states Colorado, Virginia and Iowa believe
Hillary is neither honest nor trustworthy.
Even former California Democratic Party Chairman Bill Press told
WND that controversies surrounding Hillary should convince
members of his own party an uncontested coronation of Clinton as
the partys 2016 nominee for the White House is a very risky
idea and should encourage other Democrats to throw their hats in
Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican candidate for president, said
Sunday he believes voters will reject Hillary because of the
cloud of constant scandal she brings to the political process.
Rubio told Fox News Sunday, Unfortunately, both under her
husbands presidency, her time in the Department of State, her
campaign for the president last time and even now, there seems
to be this cloud of constant scandal and things that distract us
from the core issues of the moment.
Hillarys drama could become a distraction, Rubio warned, at a
time when the stakes are high for America in the 2016 election.
I just think that at this hinge moment in our history, where we
are asked to make a transition from the past into this new
future, with all the challenges and the opportunities of our
time that we really the American people are not at a point now
where they are going to be supportive of more drama surrounding
the political process, he said.
In 2003, ABC News Barbara Walters referenced numerous Clinton
scandals from Whitewater to Travelgate and the death of Hillary
law partner Vince Foster in an interview with then-Sen. Clinton.
Walters asked Hillary, How did you get in this mess where your
whole credibility is being questioned?
Hillarys response: Oh, I ask myself that every day, Barbara,
because its very surprising and confusing to me.
With Hillary making another run for president, dont get caught

Words, find out who the true Hillary is with this raw and

With the prospect of another two-for-one Clinton presidency
looming, is America ready for a repeat of the Bill and Hillary
drama in the White House?
If, as psychologists say, The best predictor of future behavior
is past behavior, then a fresh look at the top 20 scandals
involving Hillary is in order.
2) Covering Bills dirty deeds
The Clintons have been accused of hiring private investigators
to not only dig up dirt on perceived adversaries such as
Juanita Broaddrick, the woman allegedly raped by Bill, and other
abused women such as Gennifer Flowers, Kathleen Willey and Paula
Jones but to stalk, scare and threaten them. Willey asserts
Hillary was behind a campaign of intimidation and harassment
against her that fit a pattern employed against numerous other
women whose claims of sexual impropriety or assault by Bill
Clinton threatened the couples political fortunes.
As WND reported, Willey and her husband, Ed, were Democratic
activists who founded Virginians for Clinton and helped send
Bill and Hillary to the White House in 1992. While serving as a
volunteer in the White House and facing financial hard times,
Willey says she met with Bill Clinton in the Oval Office to
request a paying position. But instead of getting help, she
says, she was subjected to nothing short of serious sexual
harassment. Distraught, Willey fled Clintons presence, only to
discover that her husband Ed had committed suicide that same
tragic afternoon. Later, she was drawn unwillingly into the
Paula Jones lawsuit, the Ken Starr investigation and impeachment
Willey, author of the 2007 book, Target: Caught in the
Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton, has claimed the Clinton
tag team used mob-style intimidation campaign to keep her
silent, even purportedly breaking into her home to steal her
memoirs of the events.
Despite Bills 20 years of alleged and admitted extra-marital
relationships, Hillary famously came to his defense shortly
after the Monica Lewinsky affair broke in 1998. Asked about the
accusations, the then-first lady said, Certainly, I believe
theyre false. Absolutely.
Then, in a memorable interview with the Today shows Matt
Lauer, she explained years of accusations by women such as
Willey, Gennifer Flowers and Dolly Kyle Browning: Bill and I
have been accused of everything, including murder, by some of
the very same people who are behind these allegations, she
said, pointing to a vast right-wing conspiracy. So from my
perspective this is part of a continuing political campaign
against my husband.
What makes a book about Bill and Hillary Clinton so explosive
that someone would STEAL it? Kathleen Willey tells America the
shocking story in her book, Target: Caught in the Crosshairs of
Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Later, however, when placed under oath, Bill Clinton admitted to
an affair with Flowers, as he did with Lewinksy. But Hillarys
actions, Willey contends, indicated by word and deed that her
main concern was to ensure her husbands proclivities didnt
ruin their political careers.
In her book, Willey cites sources who contend Hillary began
engaging private investigators during their time in Arkansas so
she could head off any repercussions from her husbands
behavior. The first to be dispatched were her own father and
brother when she committed to marry Bill, according to author
Jerome Levin in The Clinton Syndrome. Bill had left Yale
University for Arkansas to teach law, and she went to work in
When Bill was governor, Hillary sent out a group of
investigators known at the Truth Squad to discourage many of
her husbands lovers from going public.
Sounds like Obama and his gay boyfriends.
