    With all due respect, I believe it is a bit of a stretch to typify Ms. Clinton as 'left wing'. She is a Democrat & a proponent of national healthcare (and recently and seemingly begrudgingly - LGBT rights & marriage), but many of her policies lean more centrist, particularly in relation to foreign policy, business & finance, and matters of expenditure & debt - remember, her husband signed welfare reform & 'welfare to work' into law.

    At best, I'd describe her as 'left-center' or perhaps 'moderate left'.

    Now if you'd like to use derivatives of the term 'left (wing)', Ms. Warren or Mr. Sanders might be better examples.

    The largest singular complaint in her party, is she's not 'left enough'!

    Really man, you cannot attack this guy that way and then claim a moral high ground.

    On the one hand you claim Hillary will "stand on the truth" [which is ****ing laughable] then suggest Gowdie is not craty enough to catch her. If she's standing on truth, what's to catch? If she's so ****ing honest, why is it important for the Hillary propaganda machine to make Gowdie into an inept and "stupid" lawyer.

    Were me, I would be championing how smart he is.

    You blew it friend, ice cream and hot coals do not make for a good argument

    Investigation #8... same results as investigation #9? Taking bets here!

    Yes, this is a game of extremely high-stakes politics!

    The GOP obviously believe she has reasonable or likely gravitas to attain the White House, or they would not expose themselves as a party to such risk.

    The Clintons can be dangerous political animals - this could back-fire on the GOP. They are giving her a perch & placing a microphone in front of her - anything could happen.

    I figured she'd ride her broomstick into DC...landing directly on the front lawn of Congress.

    but your problem is he will have no ability to counter her answers
    especially after he has shot his wad by publicizing his questions
    he has made it certain that hillary will look good at this hearing
    gowdy and the other reich wingers, not so much
    What do you mean "counter her questions"?

    Do you understand what an investigation is?

    Its because they just say things, there is no underlying concept or idea-just get out of the heat in the moment and attack away.

    Good question.

    They have the option of subpeona and forcing her to testify. Probably why she sol graciously "agreed" to testify....

    She has nothing to hide you see....she is too clever for them according to her supporters and that's what counts in a president, not being caught!
