There is no question that Hillary Clinton has aspirations to make a run for the President’s office again. With her exploratory committees moving around checking the lay of the land, she is already quietly fundraising, knowing darn well she’s going to need quite a bit of a war chest to carry a campaign.

Despite the fact that the very next President’s field for the upcoming elections is one of the weakest seen in years, Hillary also knows it won’t be an even run for her. The disaster of the Libyan Embassy attack in Benghazi is firmly stuck around her neck like an albatross. However, even with that damaging vulnerability, Clinton still remains one of the strongest candidates to watch out for. The reason is telling in terms of which Senators and Representatives actually came after her during the Embassy attack hearings.

Notably, none of the major senior Senators and Representatives on either side of the aisle spent much time grilling Hillary, when she was still the Secretary of State in front of Congressional hearings. It was always junior members who were rookies and didn’t have much to lose. That’s telling. One could argue the junior members were just given their marching orders by senior members. Yet, in reality, it had more to do with Hillary having the power to “use” some of those senior members as cannon fodder in case she needed to protect herself. She had spent plenty of time as a senator herself, doing plenty of intelligence gathering on her peers. And cost is no barrier.

Clinton first made it known she was a power player by how much money she could throw into a campaign, practically buying her way into the Senate ($29 million in 2000, and $36 million in the 2006, 2nd term).

In those same campaigns, Clinton doled out thousands of dollars in benefits and gifts, but potentially compromised her aids, lobbyists, fundraisers and donors by providing them with thank you gifts.

Clinton convinced Republican Senator Bill Frist to carry legislation to modernize hospital record-keeping, one of the preliminary steps of government run healthcare control seen later under the Obama Administration.

She helped the Tata Consultancy Services, a major Indian company, gain a foothold in New York, but she voted down on the Central America Free Trade Agreement, flip-flopping on which pro-business issues she liked personally versus voting for the economy. No surprise, Indian donors were notable in Clinton’s Presidency campaign years later.

So the real examination of Hillary and her tricks needs to go far beyond the Libyan Embassy episode. What is really needed to be examined is why it is that senior members of Congress who have significant depth in issues are afraid to take Hillary Clinton in a head-on match.

Further, no one should be expecting Vice President Joe Biden to distract or delay Clinton’s march into the Presidential campaign for the democratic ticket. Biden simply doesn’t measure up to Hillary on a debate level, too often putting his foot in his mouth with dumb statements. He will be his own destruction. And Hillary will be ready to take the nomination from silent peers at the Democratic Convention. Will the senior Republicans behave the same way as well all over again in the campaign? If it’s up to Hillary they will.

    ” Clinton convinced Republican Senator Bill Frist to carry legislation to modernize hospital record-keeping”
    This is the sort of thing the republicans will lose on–most people like modern medicine delivered in new technology.
    All the repubs have is a horse-drawn wagon full of snake oil.

    You guys are seriously scared of Hillary. Otherwise you wouldn’t attack her so much when she hasn’t even declared her candidacy. They again, when all you have is Lyin’ Ryan and Carnivál Cruz, you need to attack anyone who could even remotely be deemed a threat.

    Oh Contraire’ unlike Sarah Palin, She hasn’t the brains to solve anything she’s just rich like Bill Clinton and they both milked their positions to the hilt. This woman hung on to Bill’s coattails after Lewinski finished him off, like her husband she had a disconnect to America and only used position as appointed by Obama to be sec. of state, and keep him informed so he could continue on his path of destruction of Capitalist America and Obama knew how best to keep Hillary contained as he marched over his opponent to the White House and he himself was window dressed by the Democratic party. They were so awed by his so called “rhetorical” rants, that they hid the real OBAMA from America until he could pass something that resembled “true HealthCare for the citizens while taking away their real and PAID FOR” healthcare and then REALITY SET IN…”WE CAN’T AFFORD OBAMACARE! NEITHER ACCOMPLISHED ANYTHING WORTH NOTING…THEY SIMPLY ABUSED THEIR HIGH PROFILES WITH SILLY PROMISES AND NO SUBSTANCE!!

      Yeah! keep spewing the regurgitated tidbits. You can not stand her competency, accomplishments, intelligence, articulation etc etc. You should talk about the pathetic Palin, who did not even read a paragraph in her local newspapers and who was ill prepared to be the VP nominee. Perhaps she thought people would vote for her THINGY, WINKY WINKY, garbage she put out. No, folks would not buy into that. What the heck, she did not even finish her full term FOUR YEARS of governorship. She QUIT in favor of GREEN BENJAMINS demanding $100,000 per speaking engagement, bendy straws, first class air fare and black stretch limo for delivering her from the airport to the venue of her garbage of a speech. Now you have the CHUTZPAH to rant at Hillary. You wont even be able to lick the dust off her shoes.

      Sarah Palin more brains than Hillary Clinton ? What is Palin s educational background compared to HC s background ? Did you not see that film on the McCain campaign where they had to educate Palin about who the Axis Powers were during WW II and its breakup and the rearrangement of Post War Europe ? Scary that Caribou Barbie was almost close to a heartbeat away from being the leader of the free world .
