But I don't believe that the congressional oversight of that incident was stone walled by the administration then. I may very well have that wrong, I freely admit, as I wasn't paying as much attention to national politics then, as I do now.
Let's talk about the word "hurt". I think it hurts her chance, but it doesn't destroy her chance. It's a definite negative that if nothing else brings into question her ability and commitment as a leader. Secretary of State was her first role as a leader, and while at first I thought she wasn't doing badly, I think she let things slide in the latter part of her tenure. It also brings into question her integrity. Her testimony before Congress was less than stellar (to say the least), and will be used against her. It will have no effect on the hardcore suck-ups.

I doubt a lot of folks going to the polls in 2016 will have even heard about Benghazi because so many of them don't even tune into politics until 2 weeks before they go vote. And those who do manage to catch the news a couple times of week depending on where they get that news, the incident in the MSM was barely covered and when it was, it was treated like an unfortunate incident not holding anyone responsible except an Egyptian born Coptic Christian on a video about Mohammed.
But then there are folks like Judge Jeanine who haven't let this story disappear and when the report came out, she had a scathing commentary on her show last weekend in which I responded with a standing O.
