Democrats should ask Clinton to step aside

Quote:
Has America become so numb by the decades of lies and cynicism oozing from Clinton Inc. that it could elect Hillary Clinton as president, even after Friday's FBI announcement that it had reopened an investigation of her emails while secretary of state?

We'll find out soon enough.

It's obvious the American political system is breaking down. It's been crumbling for some time now, and the establishment elite know it and they're properly frightened. Donald Trump, the vulgarian at their gates, is a symptom, not a cause. Hillary Clinton and husband Bill are both cause and effect.

FBI director James Comey's announcement about the renewed Clinton email investigation is the bombshell in the presidential campaign. That he announced this so close to Election Day should tell every thinking person that what the FBI is looking at is extremely serious.

This can't be about pervert Anthony Weiner and his reported desire for a teenage girl. But it can be about the laptop of Weiner's wife, Clinton aide Huma Abedin, and emails between her and Hillary. It comes after the FBI investigation in which Comey concluded Clinton had lied and been "reckless" with national secrets, but said he could not recommend prosecution.

So what should the Democrats do now?

If ruling Democrats hold themselves to the high moral standards they impose on the people they govern, they would follow a simple process:

They would demand that Mrs. Clinton step down, immediately, and let her vice presidential nominee, Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, stand in her place.

Democrats should say, honestly, that with a new criminal investigation going on into events around her home-brew email server from the time she was secretary of state, having Clinton anywhere near the White House is just not a good idea.

Since Oct. 7, WikiLeaks has released 35,000 emails hacked from Clinton campaign boss John Podesta. Now WikiLeaks, no longer a neutral player but an active anti-Clinton agency, plans to release another 15,000 emails.

What if she is elected? Think of a nation suffering a bad economy and continuing chaos in the Middle East, and now also facing a criminal investigation of a president. Add to that congressional investigations and a public vision of Clinton as a Nixonian figure wandering the halls, wringing her hands.

The best thing would be for Democrats to ask her to step down now. It would be the most responsible thing to do, if the nation were more important to them than power. And the American news media — fairly or not firmly identified in the public mind as Mrs. Clinton's political action committee — should begin demanding it.


Rest at source.

It's because Hillary is for Hillary. She never has had the best interest if the nation at heart.

She is a selfish political opportunist who will fight tooth and nail to remain in power. She will have to be dragged out of office by federal law enforcement officials. She will take down as many others as possible.

It's wishful thinking at this stage. If I had my druthers we would switch both candidates.

@edgarblythe,
Only problem with that kind of thinking, I can't think of a single Republican that qualifies as a good candidate.

Actually, a thinking person would read the rest of the stories and see that Comey has no clue what is in the emails or even if they have all duplicates that have already been looked at by the FBI.

@giujohn,
That's not any better. I'd rather see Hillary get elected then convicted and end up with President Kaine

@maporsche,
As long as we are saying our fantasies here.

How about 4 years of Hillary, after which she gets tired and decides not to run again. She will be followed by 8 years of Elizabeth Warren.
