Hillary Clinton, once burdened with a profusion of image and credibility problems, has had a great many weights lifted off her shoulders this month. The Democratic presidential front-runner has defended her record at the State Department, dodged a serious challenge from Vice President Joe Biden and saw two of her primary opponents leave the race.
I was disappointed with the Benghazi hearings because I was hoping the Congressional committee would subpoena more celebrities. Instead, it was eleven straight hours of Congressmen saying the same stuff over and over, taking only occasional breaks to fundraise. Oh, and Hillary Clinton had a front row seat.
With Bernie Sanders as nominee, Democrats won't have to endure endless scandals and defend against real or fabricated controversies. Benghazi might be politically motivated, but the FBI investigation and other scandals are serious. Although Bernie's success is bolstered primarily by his record and his bold message, Clinton's issues will help him become the Democratic nominee.
