    Hillary Rodham Clinton appears to have initially weathered a barrage of news about her use of a private email account when she was secretary of state and the practices of her family’s foundation, an indication that she is starting her second presidential bid with an unusual durability among Democratic voters.


    Americans now view Mrs. Clinton more favorably and more see her as a strong leader than they did earlier in the year, despite weeks of scrutiny about her ethics, a New York Times/CBS News poll has found. And nearly nine in 10 Democrats say the nation is ready to elect a woman president.

    Why use the word weathered?

    Do they think this is over and done with?

    That's obviously what they are hoping and that the Gruberites will buy it.

    I wouldn't give much credence to any poll that shows her in the lead.
    It is easy to be in the lead if nobody is running against you.

    With her and her husband, there will always be the next one. You can bank on that.

    Yeah her Team is out defending her and so to her followers......But the ripples have already started. Once the money starts to leave.....what sign would that be?


    Clinton Foundation in campaign tailspin

    By Kenneth P. Vogel @kenvogel

    A handful of deep-pocketed donors are reconsidering their gifts to the $2 billion Clinton Foundation amid mounting questions about how it’s spending their money and suggestions of influence peddling,....snip~

    We can't forget about Bill tripling his speaking fees when Hillary became SOS. What would make him worth tree times as much? We will have to ponder that question.

    The story also used "appears" and "initially." The story makes no assumptions as to whether or not the issue is finished.

    I actually agree with on that.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Wow. Democrats will ignore a potential scandal involving someone with the last name of Clinton, and they want Bill Clinton back in the White House. Gee, I couldn't be more surprised than if I woke up with George Clooney tomorrow morning.

    You did see the poll said "Americans," not "Democrats," right? Well, except for the "ready to elect a woman president" part, and I don't see how 100% of Democrats AND Republicans can't say we're not.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    I guess you didn't read the article?

    While roughly 48 percent of Americans say Mrs. Clinton is honest and trustworthy, about four of five Democrats think she has those traits — and about the same numbers of Democrats say she shares the values most Americans try to live by.

    Fifty-two percent of Democrats said they knew nothing or very little about the Clinton Foundation, and only 10 percent said foreign donations to the foundation affected Mrs. Clinton’s decisions while she was the nation’s top diplomat. Just 9 percent of Democratic voters said they would not consider voting for Mrs. Clinton.


    See the words "Democrats" and "Democratic voters" in there?

    Those magic words appear here, too:

    Democrats also assume that Mr. Clinton — who memorably said in his 1992 presidential bid that he and Mrs. Clinton represented “two for the price of one” — would play a substantial role were Mrs. Clinton to win the White House. Seven in 10 Democratic voters said he would have a great deal or some influence on Mrs. Clinton if she became president.

    I also never said anything about being ready to elect a woman. I commented on those 2 things I posted just now for you.
