"Tsk tsk" does not address the issues that a great many people are concerned about, silently or not-so-silently. Talk with your conscience -- this isn't about me

Oh, but it WAS...wholly.

You come in here and insult those whom you accuse of not being smart enough to know as much as YOU do and you can bet your ass you're going be called out on it.

I don't give a damn about your "offended" "insulted" act -- even HRC acknowledged recently that acting "offended" has gone beyond reason.

HRC needs to explain, perhaps not to you but to plenty of other interested citizens, why she was not obliged to abide by the same rules as everyone else (especially when so much has been at stake, and the losses have been so enormous.) The need for an explanation about the server security lapses is not a bit "sexist" and serving up that lame excuse, betrays feminism

I pretty much just figure that if there were more to Clinton's email scandal the 8-ish investigations by a rabid conservative machhine would've dug it up by now. Also in the realm of screw ups this is maybe a 3 on the Richter scale (for me) in the grand scheme of things.

I'm not registered with a party so I am not permitted to vote in primaries in my state... I'll vote for either one of them because the primary thing I care about is the Supreme Court and not giving current Republicans a free hand by having a majority Senate and House coupled with a R president.... that scares me more than the email scandel flat out.

So nominate either... I like Sanders fine.... I like Clinton (and I haven't always liked Clinton). Either of them brings pluses and minuses to the table, but they're 100 times better than any "Republican" on the table.

Don't know if you already heard of "Honest Gil" Fulbright, iiibbb.... but some have him poised for a 2016 presidential run! (Fulbright was a 2014 Kentucky candidate against McConnell/the guy who ran against McConnell, IIRC)

"Honest Gil" Fulbright

TIME on Gil Fulbright

The thing I want to know about the "email scandal" is why no one SENDING or RECEIVING emails that might have been and/or were later were deemed to be confidential never spoke up when this was going on? No one from the State Department thought it odd that emails addressed to "SuperGran@ AOL.com" or some such was an odd place for a Secretary of State to be RECEIVING emails concerning the fate of the world?

46179. judithathome - 2/9/2016 9:43:32 PM

I just might vote for Gary Johnson this time around...don't agree with him on everything but with enough to take him more seriously than any of the Republicans!

(only HALF seriously....please note.)

46180. iiibbb - 2/9/2016 10:04:56 PM

Nominate Gil if you like... I don't care. Clinton's email scandal even if true pales in comparison to lying about WMD's, Torture, the stock market crash, Interfering with the Bush/Gore vote, Disenfranchising voters today, Iran/Contra, . . .

Just to name a few...

When members of the Bush administration get indited on war crimes I'll worry about Clinton's emails

Again... nominate whoever... I'm voting purely to ensure the SCOTUS is aligned properly.

46181. judithathome - 2/9/2016 10:13:11 PM

That's an important factor...though anyone that isn't "rabidly right" will be blocked by the Republican Congress...they have that in their sights and won't care WHO they put in the WH as long as it's a Republican....

I guess you and I are saying the same thing, though...anyone BUT a Republican.

46182. judithathome - 2/10/2016 4:07:05 AM

Bernie and Trump take New Hampshire.....(eyeroll)

46183. judithathome - 2/10/2016 4:08:20 AM

Oh wow...Kasich beat out Cruz for second on the Republican side!! You go, guy!

46184. iiibbb - 2/10/2016 4:42:50 AM

I like Kasich... unfortunately I can't vote for him the balance of powers the way they are.

46185. arkymalarky - 2/10/2016 6:23:40 AM

Yeah, I really like kasich a lot. I love what Bernie has to say, even though I'm going to vote for Hillary.

46186. arkymalarky - 2/10/2016 6:26:11 AM

by the way, 3i's 46180 nailed it!

46187. judithathome - 2/10/2016 9:28:29 PM

The only thing I cringe at with Kasich is that he has a "tell"...a facial tick that happens when he's rattled. It's very noticable and would certainly be noticed by foreign leaders if he got in over his head with them.

46188. iiibbb - 2/10/2016 10:03:44 PM

This is the McCain I voted for in 1999

46189. judithathome - 2/10/2016 11:21:11 PM

Carly Fiorina is out...I guess her 17 votes will go somewhere else.

And even though it's being debated whether or not this is accurate, Chris Christie may be out, too.

46190. judithathome - 2/11/2016 12:10:21 AM

Official...he is.

46191. arkymalarky - 2/12/2016 5:20:48 AM

Who in the world picked Hillary's outfit? Star Trek needs to look for a missing costume.

46192. winstonsmith - 2/13/2016 2:55:29 AM

One thought that comes to mind for me WRT Hillary's email server is that I imagine plenty of folks in the DOS, FBI, CIA, etc knew about it and apparently did little or nothing?

If all those agencies knew, and essentially gave her tacit approval by doing nothing, then apparently they were not very worried about it and, incidentally, could be culpable if it turned out to be some kind of actionable offense. (so maybe they will not want to open that can of worms too far)

For my self, it seems like a bad idea that she used it but it seems doubtful that anything would ever come of it other than whatever hay partisans can make of it.

46193. judithathome - 2/13/2016 11:18:08 PM

I mentioned something similar last week in post # 46178.

Should everyone sending emails to her be brought up before a Congressional panel, too?
