You are good at this Pd, I agree 100%.
Remember as SofS she ALWAYS disappeared whenever something went wrong and assigned lackey underlings to get on TV and explain the bad news.
But this time it has caught up with her. It took time but she is gone from State and those remaining there and in WH have to save their own behinds. Look how Dems feel it necessary to yell at the IRS on TV for show.
libs like many here rally around those of their own attacked....Angle, Akin etc... its a human thing that can be a flaw and weakness.
WE are seen by them as going after Hillary...that rallies libs to Hillary even though they hated her in 2008 for competing with Obama. They may still see her as unbeatable in that... and to your point...we let her be nominated by Dems and then Boom....we drop the bombs... let her be Dems McCain/Romney....
