    No, I did neither. Just because you went on and on without uttering the precise words doesn't mean you didn't mean exactly what I said.

    And I never said the right is blaming Hillary for Bill's actions. One poster said this, and you implied that it takes two people to contribute to an infidelity.
    I didn't imply it. I said it. That's not categorically true, but generally so. In the Clinton's case, it's very likely true. Hillary certainly knew about Bill's previous transgressions when Lewinsky became known. In some respects I think she behaved admirably and somewhat stoically. However, when political ambition runs headlong into such scandals, Hillary threw certain things overboard for political considerations. Seems this was more than a one-time event, but this was the only one on the national stage, front and center.

    MIAMI (AP) — Sen. Marco Rubio is telling his top donors that he is running for president because he feels "uniquely qualified" to pitch his Republican Party as one that will defend the American Dream.

    The first-term Republican from Florida told his biggest backers on a conference call on Monday that he sees the coming presidential campaign as a choice between the past and the future. In a swipe at Democratic rival Hillary Rodham Clinton, Rubio said the former first lady "is a leader from yesterday."

    Rubio says he has always felt the United States is about tomorrow.


    Does he have a chance?
    No frigging chance whatsoever. The donors putting their money on Rubio are throwing their money down the drain because he will never be the republican candidate for the presidency and he will never ever (at least not this time around) defeat Hillary or whomever is chosen by the democrats.
    toward that end the tactics and the strategies that people resort to in carrying out this ideologically driven agenda of what they call “pro-life” which is really pro-fetus does not have anything to do with the lives of babies after they’re born or the women who bear them.

    I would never want Obama involved with anything. And it is a state issue and they are moving in the direction of complete voucher system.

    Right. A president shouldn't have any say in our education system. That should be up to the states, entirely.

    I think that is exactly what I said. Thus we agree.

    But then why would you think Rubio should campaign on education vouchers?

    Loads of people, Romney, Ted Cruz, Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, Donald Trump, Rick Perry, Chris Christie, Rick Santorum, Rand Paul, etc. etc.

    Maybe Bush has a chance but I am not sure about that one either.

    OK so no republican can win the Republican nomination and the party then throws it's vote for Hillery. Got it.
