It really shows nothing about her character itself in a valid way, without making some major assumptions about her character to begin with, which would show bias one way or another.
    Do you think there is a massive difference between investigating a persons physical ability to do the job as saying "see the glasses , must be brain damaged"?

    Oh, definitely. It's basically the difference between legitimate concerns over her health (fainting or dizzy spells, signs of longterm exhaustion, or hospitalizations for things that aren't basically accidents or regular illnesses) and inferences that simple things mean more than there is any proof for.

    One jackass was even bringing up brain injury and Hillary. Seriously, no, there is no vast right wing conspiracy against Clinton.

    Were any of these claims untrue, or do some of them point to a character problem. The Left didn't want Barrack Obama's past investigated for a variety of reasons and now they are wanting the same thing with Hillary Clinton, it seems.

    How do you arrive at the best candidate for the presidency if you refuse to investigate their history?

    Did any of these people, like Bill Clinton, commit perjury in front of a Grand Jury?

    Yes, there is. And Rove said one thing while the NY Post said the other.

    Who made the claim, "see the glasses , must be brain damaged"?

    was referring to the hypocrisy of those on the right, such as henry hyde, who drafted the articles of impeachment, who simultaneously castigated clinton's affair while having one of their own ... all while proclaiming they - and their party - stood for 'family values'

    now, notice that the investigation of clinton began with whitewater. but nothing criminal was found there. it was only when the republicans caught wind of the lewinsky blow jobs that they questioned the president about his sexual activities - and he wrongly lied about it. he lied about receiving a blow job. later, dicknbush lied about the presence of WMDs to justify a war with iraq, resulting in the deaths of 4,489 Americans. so much for your party of family values

    So tired of the stale "Bush lied" thing. And this thread is about Clinton and his perjury, not about Dubya.

    You're wrong. A few Whitewater partners went to prison over the investigation, pretty much everyone from the Rose Law firm except Hillary. And Al Qaeda's actions are what lead to the deaths of 4,489 Americans.

    From Wiki:

    Ultimately the Clintons were never charged, but 15 other persons were convicted of more than 40 crimes, including Bill Clinton's successor as Governor, who was removed from office.[40]

    Jim Guy Tucker: Governor of Arkansas at the time, removed from office (fraud, 3 counts)
    John Haley: attorney for Jim Guy Tucker (tax evasion)
    William J. Marks, Sr.: Jim Guy Tucker business partner (conspiracy)
    Stephen Smith: former Governor Clinton aide (conspiracy to misapply funds). Bill Clinton pardoned.
    Webster Hubbell: Clinton political supporter; Rose Law Firm partner (embezzlement, fraud)
    Jim McDougal: banker, Clinton political supporter: (18 felonies, varied)
    Susan McDougal: Clinton political supporter (multiple fraud). Bill Clinton pardoned.
    David Hale: banker, self-proclaimed Clinton political supporter: (conspiracy, fraud)
    Neal Ainley: Perry County Bank president (embezzled bank funds for Clinton campaign)
    Chris Wade: Whitewater real estate broker (multiple loan fraud). Bill Clinton pardoned.
    Larry Kuca: Madison real estate agent (multiple loan fraud)
    Robert W. Palmer: Madison appraiser (conspiracy). Bill Clinton pardoned.
    John Latham: Madison Bank CEO (bank fraud)
    Eugene Fitzhugh: Whitewater defendant (multiple bribery)
    Charles Matthews: Whitewater defendant (bribery)
