    Hilary Clinton has been planning to leave the Cabinet for at least a year. So there's nothing to that angle at all.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Patreus is a person with a whole different personality from Bill Clinton.

    Patreus has been in the military long enough to become a general, and then moved on to CIA Director.

    If there's nothing deeper behind this, it could be that he wants to take time off from civil service to deal with his personal life to deal with his family the reasons why he had an extramarital affair.

    And I wouldn't blame him at all for that, if that was the honest reason.

    Timing is everything. A top level federal official resigning 3 days after an election? Certainly unconventional.

    On the bright side. If it has any relationship to Bengahze. They sure as hell aren't going to throw Petraeus under the bus.

    Hillary said she was leaving 3 years ago - 3 years before Benghazi. She only wanted one term. Nice wishful thinking though.

    3. 2016. Here is to hoping. If he ever wants to run for public office this would need be public. It is.

    I don't know how it fits into Benghazi except for someone potentially blackmailing him or bringing it up during his testimony.
    I don't know about him running for office; but your first two? I agree with. In fact, I think it's possible that he was blackmailed, and that's why he came forward. Which, if true, would be the exact right thing for him to do.

    Hell, the best thing to do is to look at how many executive officials leave their posts in a common amount of time: 4 years if Department sec. 2-3 years if other post.

    Wikipedia makes that little task easy enough, and only requires you to look at when they step in and when they leave.

    Re: CIA Director Resigns

    They are reporting that the affair was with a woman who wrote a book on him and is being investigated as to whether she had access to his email and through that to classified information. If that turns out to be rue I will be very sad. He was a great military man and it would be really tragic for him to make such an error in judgement.
