    I think she would eventually be subpoenad.

    It suggest that Republicans value the lives of Americans who served their country and died doing so as opposed to a lame president who hides behind a lie of a "spontaneous demonstration" and sends in the FB ****ing I to get the terrorists who are as we speak training other terrorists.

    And if you're so concerned about the lives of Iraqi's, let's talk about that early withdrawal and Obama's "I ended the war" which seems to still be a war.

    To equate the lives lost of servicemen and diplomats to a bunch of baby killing terrorists shows the true colors of the Amerikan liberal.....

    It's it's American it has to be apologized for, and uniformed Americans are fodder for the great left wing propaganda wars

    No he offered.....that if she felt that her use of private emails was a concern of hers. He was willing to leave that as an option for her.

    That doesn't mean she cannot be subpoena'd in the future due to any revelations that come forth, and over a specific issue.

    Isn't it amazing? The President and SoS refused to provide additional security or withdraw like everyone else had, ignored pleas for help, failed to send a rescue, and after hours of combat without help 4 Americans died-and then hillary blamed a video that wasnt even viewable in Libya. And all of this for politics because Obama was "tough on terrorism" (ISIS struck in texas this week, btw).

    And yet despite this its the republicans who are playing politics for calling out and investigating this behavior. An investigation which amongst other things, led to the discovery of Hillarys email server.

    this is how i view hillary. she wants to be president, but is unable to articulate what she would do with the power of the executive once she acquired it
    and in contrast, it is why i support Elizabeth Warren; she is the reluctant leader. she has a sense of purpose, and that is why she should be the democratic contender for the white house


    the world is always unraveling somewhere, while being knitted together in other places
    i see this as a wonderful era ... especially when compared to the times of WWI, WWII and the (un)civil war. those who lived in those times would likely marvel that we would so disparage the circumstances of the world today by comparison to their own experiences
    Greetings, justabubba.

    I agree with you on Elizabeth Warren. Why she's not seeking the nomination is puzzling, because I feel she would have some good ideas, especially regarding the banks and their shenanigans that are being exposed. There are apparently high-ranking people who do not want her in charge!

    I
    assume you are aware that Bank of America, using its Merrill Lynch investment banking unit, quietly in 2011 shifted almost $80 trillion of its European derivatives liability, which means they are now going to be insured by US taxpayers, and America's two most important financial institutions - the Federal Reserve and the FDIC. JP Morgan Chase also shifted $79 trillion of its derivatives debt in the same manner. This was done quietly and in secret, with no regulatory or Congressional approval or public input, but the information is now coming out that both banks made billions in profits from creating and marketing derivaties that they probably knew in advance would collapse. How's that for getting screwed? Don't hold your breath on seeing that anyone is hung from the gallows on this fiasco, either! :

    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'!
    Greetings, Chomsky.

    As usual, I guess it all come down to perception. I've often wondered about how far left, or right, does anyone have to be to earn the "radical" descriptive, on both sides of the aisle? Some are readily apparent, others aren't until you see them in action, or listen carefully to what they say about what they believe in.

    'Perception' is a good word, and I might even add 'point of reference'.

    If your comfort zone & frame-of-reference is pretty far Right and you move in those circles, most everything will appear 'Left'. And vis a' versa.

    The one thing forums like this has taught me, along with the internet & cable news, is just how different our spheres of reference can be from each other. It took me awhile to realize that for those that differ from me in what seems like outlandish ideas & perceptions, are very true perceptions and realities to those posters - no different than they appear to myself.

    Well for the most part - there's always a few trolls & rabble-rousers, but I believe most people that differ from me do honestly believe in their take-on-things.
