During his 1992 campaign for the presidency, Bill Clinton was
fond of promising America, “You get two for the price of one,”
indicating Hillary Clinton would act as his co-president.
But the nation got much more than it bargained for, as the top
power couple brought a load of baggage with them into the White
House from their days in Arkansas.
After the Clintons moved into the presidential mansion, the
political scandals multiplied – from use of the IRS and FBI to
target political opponents to stalking and harassing subjects of
Bill Clinton’s sexual advances and even attempts to loot
taxpayer-funded items from the White House. Americans also
witnessed capers such as Travelgate, Chinagate, Filegate and
Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades and subsequent impeachment by
the U.S. House of Representatives on charges of perjury and
obstruction of justice consumed more than a year of American
public life and bitterly divided the nation.
In the years since the memorable Clinton presidency, Hillary has
brought America Emailgate and the Benghazi scandal, among
others. New developments in the Clinton Foundation scandals
emerges almost daily.
Now, it’s Hillary’s “turn” to be president, according to her
But in 2015, America is still apparently suffering from “Clinton
fatigue.” Results from a Quinnipiac poll published in April
revealed between 49 and 56 percent of voters in three
significant swing states – Colorado, Virginia and Iowa – believe
Hillary is neither honest nor trustworthy.
Even former California Democratic Party Chairman Bill Press told
WND that controversies surrounding Hillary should convince
members of his own party an uncontested coronation of Clinton as
the party’s 2016 nominee for the White House is a very risky
idea and should encourage other Democrats to throw their hats in
Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican candidate for president, said
Sunday he believes voters will reject Hillary because of the
“cloud of constant scandal she brings to the political process.”
Rubio told Fox News Sunday, “Unfortunately, both under her
husband’s presidency, her time in the Department of State, her
campaign for the president last time and even now, there seems
to be this cloud of constant scandal and things that distract us
from the core issues of the moment.”
Hillary’s “drama” could become a distraction, Rubio warned, at a
time when the stakes are high for America in the 2016 election.
“I just think that at this hinge moment in our history, where we
are asked to make a transition from the past into this new
future, with all the challenges and the opportunities of our
time that we really – the American people are not at a point now
where they are going to be supportive of more drama surrounding
the political process,” he said.
In 2003, ABC News’ Barbara Walters referenced numerous Clinton
scandals from Whitewater to Travelgate and the death of Hillary
law partner Vince Foster in an interview with then-Sen. Clinton.
Walters asked Hillary, “How did you get in this mess where your
whole credibility is being questioned?”
Hillary’s response: “Oh, I ask myself that every day, Barbara,
because it’s very surprising and confusing to me.”

With the prospect of another “two-for-one” Clinton presidency
looming, is America ready for a repeat of the Bill and Hillary
“drama” in the White House?
If, as psychologists say, “The best predictor of future behavior
is past behavior,” then a fresh look at the top 20 scandals
involving Hillary is in order.
16) Hillary’s radical pal, Saul Alinsky
As WND has reported, the exact nature and extent of Hillary’s
relationship with radical community organizer Saul Alinsky has
long been the subject of speculation and intrigue. The interest
has been largely fueled by her suppressed and later released 92-
page senior thesis for Wellesley College offering an extensive,
largely positive critique of Alinsky and his work.
WND recently found that long after Alinsky’s death in June 1972,
a group Clinton co-chaired maintained a working relationship
with Alinsky’s main community organizing outfit, the Industrial
Areas Foundation, or IAF.
The partnership extended into the 1990s and yielded influence
over the education policy of the Clinton presidency. Dick
Morris, a former top political adviser to Bill Clinton both as
governor of Arkansas and as president, noted to WND that
education reform “is the key issue Hillary Clinton used to
propel herself independently to the forefront of Arkansas
politics during Bill’s governorship.”
“The revelation of how closely linked her efforts were back in
the 80s – and have been since – to an Alinsky radical front
group is deeply disturbing and expands our understanding of
Hillary’s fundamental radicalism and commitment to the new left
of Saul Alinsky,” Morris said.
Hillary was said to have met with Alinsky several times in 1968,
when she was writing her thesis. In her most recent memoir,
Hillary wrote that she rejected a job offer from Alinsky to
instead attend law school.
The Hillary-Alinsky relationship received more media attention
last September, when the Washington Free Beacon uncovered direct
correspondence between Clinton and Alinsky from the archives of
Alinsky’s IAF. The correspondence dates to the summer of 1971,
when the 23-year-old Clinton was living in Berkeley, California,
and interning at the law firm Treuhaft, Walker and Burnstein. In
a July 8, 1971, letter to Alinsky marked “personal,” Hillary
wrote: “Dear Saul, When is that new book [Rules for Radicals]
coming out – or has it come and I somehow missed the fulfillment
“I have just had my one-thousandth conversation about Reveille
[for Radicals] and need some new material to throw at people,”
she wrote, referring to a 1948 Alinsky treatise on community
The Free Beacon’s Alana Goodman noted the letter documents
Hillary and Alinsky had kept in touch since she entered Yale and
that Alinsky even offered her advice on campus activism.
Hillary wrote that she missed their regular conversations and
asked if Alinsky would be able to meet her the next time he was
“I am living in Berkeley and working in Oakland for the summer
and would love to see you,” she wrote. “Let me know if there is
any chance of our getting together.”
Sounds like Obama and Bill Ayers...
