RitaOK ~ “ Hillary is going to get another pass isnt she? Untouchable Hillary is the rule and ALL are endlessly abiding by it, on both sides of the aisle. “
Hillary won’t just skate through this ; there will be repercussions.
While the media may have re-built the reputation of Slick Willy (who also bold-faced lied directly to the American people on TV ), not so with Hillary .
Neither of the Clintons have a reputation for honesty .
In hindsight , I believe Rice was the collateral damage , and ‘sacrificial lamb’ in an attempt to salvage Hillary’s reputation for future political consideration.
However , I believe that Libyia was too public a condemnation of State Dept. security malfeasance and ineptness to be quickly forgotten.
In a word , there are too many bodies to ignore.
Hillary has no future in politics. She's the old grey mare of the party, and will be let out to pasture come January 2013. She'll be happy to be there, too.
Hillary was thought to have the chutzpah for tangling and entangling our military, with her vote for Iraq, so they left her alone within reason to show it, leaving the limp wristed prez free to ingratiate himself to our foreign and domestic enemies.
Until the Left are certain that Hillary will never run again, the media will deflect all scrutiny of her and see to it that she escapes without meaningful criticism, into a celebrity departure and into retirement.
The Republican Establishment follow along with no curiosity, in their own move to the left, needing Hillary voters and the disenchanted Obama voters.
Issa will get disowned before this ends and Romney is simply far too polite to persue what is clear scandal and perhaps dereliction of duty, compromising the single most important mission of the US State Department.
