    Yet less than a year removed from her old job, Clinton's popularity has fallen from its once-lofty heights, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll out this week.

    Why is Hillary Clinton's popularity sliding?


    It is sliding because she played on the dishonest team.
    I would like to see the polling questions. I think they should publish the exact questions asked for every poll , and they should reveal who was polled, and then publish that info like the Nutrition Tags on food products (provide link to an internet site).

    Hillary is Hillary. Half of The Felonious Bill Clinton Team. Part of the Fundamentally Dishonest Obama Squad. At some point, when things get rough, and the press cannot cover, it hits the fan. yes she's out of the spotlight, but I believe Benghazi and Obama's failures are helping bring her numbers to at least a realistic level. What's she at? 15%?

    Hillary was never "popular". If she was, she would have walloped The Incompetent One in 2008. Really, what did Big Ears have going for him besides Ayers, Wright, Alinsky, ACORN and no experience running anything?
    The Clintons are what happens...
    when you have NO MORAL COMPASS.

    Why is Hillary Clinton's popularity sliding?

    Probably because sooner or later people have to realize that she's a pretty unpleasant person with a very high opinion of herself, who has been caught in numerous lies, was an ineffective Senator and Secretary of State and was only considered for those offices because she was married to a popular, albeit sleazy President who cheated on her, and who made the infamous "what difference does it make," statement.

    First, it hardly matter what I think. It matters what her potential supporters think.

    That said, I think that it is an expression of colossal ignorance for the ways in which nations are defended. She's thinking, or so it seems to me, like someone with no responsibility for the Department she heads, or for the future of the country. By asking "what difference does it make," it shows that she wishes that consideration be given the past alone (and no doubt, how she can evade responsibility for it.)

    "It matters" because leaders need to know how to act in the future and must be informed by the past. It matters because we need to know who our enemies are and their motivations so that they may be countered. It matters that we might understand our failure to protect those in our charge. And it matters because she is being asked by someone who has the authority to expect a rational answer, not a hissy fit.

    It matters, because shrewish women with low levels of competence, a history of shady business transactions and poor cooperation with official inquiries including those surrounding official malfeasance, should not in any manner be a serious contender for high elected office.

    I agree that it's good to know what led up to the attack, who attacked us an how it happened so that we can be better prepared in the future, so you'll be happy to know that Hillary Clinton thinks that too. Know how I know that? Because she said that, and you can see that in the same paragraph the "what difference does it make" comment is lifted from.

What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator. Now, honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. The IC has a process, I understand, going with the other committees to explain how these talking points came out. But you know, to be clear, it is, from my perspective, less important today looking backwards as to why these militants decided they did it than to find them and bring them to justice, and then maybe we’ll figure out what was going on in the meantime.
    Although even the whole unedited quote is a bit misleading if you miss the question and answer session that finally led up to it. Clinton focuses her answers on the facts of the attack and all the while Senator Johnson just wants to talk about whether it was said that a video started it. So when she finally explodes with the infamous "what difference does it make" comment she's not saying that why the attack started isn't important but that the priorities of Senator Johnson line of inquiry at that point in time and the investigation were completely misplaced. Read the whole interview and you'll see that clearly.

    PolitiFact | In Context: Hillary Clinton's 'What difference does it make' comment

    And she's right, you know. We needed to be focusing at that exact moment on who attacked us, how they organized the attack, bringing them to justice and how this tragedy could be avoided in the future. Not on whether Obama said a video started it. That's just silly.
