    I think her college thesis said a lot about how she felt about things in general. Of course people change their minds from time to time, but underlying convictions generally remain constant. If you feel that big government is the way to go, for instance, you aren't likely to go along with those who feel State's rights are more important. And there will always be people who think they're right about everything!

    Greetings, Pero.

    Howdy Pol, You know Hillary wasn't the only who changed his/her mind. Reagan was once a staunch Democrat. But as he put it, the party left him, he didn't leave the party. Throughout the 50's and 60's there really wan't that much difference between the two parties. Both had their conservative and liberal wings, it was said during most the this time that the Republicans believed in the same things the Democrats did, only they wanted a little less of it. Goldwater upset that status quo, then McGovern came along and remade the the Democrats from a vigorous Hawk party into a Dove party or as you put it, a peacenik party. In fact, from Wilson to Humphrey who made his run in 1968, the Democrats were the most Hawkish Party while quite a lot of Republicans were isolationists. Things change and will constantly change.

    Goldwater was one who told LBJ to either go in and win that damn war or bring our boys home now. One thing about Goldwater, one always knew where he stood on an issue. He left no doubts or gray areas.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    OMG! Hillary made them agree to limit the questions to certain questions in order to get the interview? Why, that's only been done by EVERY SINGLE viable presidential candidate for the last twenty years. You really nailed her dude. Good job.

    It appears that we need another Goldwater - or at least someone who we feel is looking out for all the people of this country, and not just the party they represent! Do you think we'll ever see it? Keep in mind that miracles do happen!

    I think Goldwater was unique. He didn't care who he peeved and said what was on his mind. Today, everyone is so careful not to say something that may lose them a vote or two, too afraid to really step on some toes even if what you are saying is the truth. Reagan was in a way like Barry but in a much softer sense. But he didn't back away from calling the USSR an evil empire. Where Barry was coarse in his speech at times, Reagan was always soft and polite, but he got his message across.

    I think Perot was in this line too, he was in the middle, not as coarse as Barry and not as soft and polite as Reagan. I can still remember Perot saying, "Look here," then continuing on with his point.

    As for future politicians who will say what is on their mind without regard to seeking votes? Nope, none on the horizon I can see.

    You are historically correct.

    So I heard. I really haven't paid Benghazi all that much attention. But I did post this a while ago:

    Here are some very interesting results on Benghazi by the polling firms of Anderson Robbins Research (D) / Shaw & Company Research (R) which released these today. Apparently most Americans think the Special Committee is a good thing, that the Obama administration lied, but also that the Republicans are only doing this for political gain, that they are not really interested in getting to the truth. Talk about a pox on both houses or should I say parties?

    Do you approve or disapprove of Congress establishing a special committee to investigate the U.S. government’s decisions and activities surrounding the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans?
    Approve 67%
    Disapprove 28%
    (Don’t know) 4%

    In the aftermath of the Benghazi terrorist attacks, the Obama administration incorrectly claimed it was a spontaneous assault in response to an online video, even though the administration had intelligence reports that the attacks were connected to terrorist groups tied to al Qaeda. Do you think the Obama administration knowingly lied about the attacks to help the president during the ongoing re-election campaign, or not?
    Yes 51%
    No 39%
    (Don’t know) 11%

    Do you think Republicans in Congress who are investigating the Benghazi terrorist attacks are mostly doing it to get to the truth about what happened or are they mostly doing it for political gain?
    Get to the truth 30%
    For Political gain 63%
    (Don’t know) 7%
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Well logically if what is being discussed happened a year or more ago, one would like to make sure they can give out accurate information concerning dates and such. I see nothing wrong with knowing ahead of time a lot of the questions that are going to be presented. Before presidential debates begin most candidates know most of the questions that are going to be asked and if not at least the subjects that will be discussed; it's called preparation. I mean it's not like you will be talking to Joe Shmoe in a coffee shop or something.
