Whispers getting louder

Since they came on the national scene, some 25 years ago now, there's always been a sense of sleaze about the Clintons. Now one of their longtime henchmen might be in trouble:
The FBI is investigating whether Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe's 2013 campaign accepted illegal contributions, law enforcement officials confirmed to NBC News.

Federal officials say for the past several months, the FBI has been looking at whether McAuliffe's 2013 campaign for governor of Virginia accepted political contributions that were forbidden by federal law.
So why does that matter?
McAuliffe is a one-time board member of the Clinton Global Initiative, the foundation set up by former President Bill Clinton and likely Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

The former chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 2000 to 2005, McAuliffe was also a co-chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign.

Records show more than 100 donors contributed to both the foundation and McAuliffe's campaign.
McAuliffe knows where the bodies are buried. If the FBI is on his tail, that's not good news for the Clintons.

Meanwhile, The Donald is out with the ad I've posted elsewhere that features the voice of Juanita Broaddrick, who has accused ol' Bill of raping her back in 1978. It's become evident that one primary Trump strategy is to turn Bill Clinton into Bill Cosby. If this strategy is successful, Hillary loses her best weapon. 

Hillary has wanted to be president in the worst way. She's getting her wish.

Is it too late to make a pick in the Dead Pool?

I wonder what McAuliffe did to tick Obama off. A lot of this doesn't make easy sense. Yes, perhaps Dear Leader doesn't want Hilliary to follow him, but let's consider the alternative--I can't see Bernie winning the general. Plus, if he wanted to trim Hilliary's sails, he'd simply issue the indictment now and be done with her.

Maybe I know how J. Edgar Hoover and Rudi Giuliani felt when investigating the Mob to try and make sense of it all. Maybe Obama is just doing selective enough prosecution of his "friends" so that the next AG has trouble connecting the dots in his use of the DOJ?

Why should the 21st Amendment be treated with any more regard by this Administration than the rest of the Constitution? After the D convention is over and Bernie buried once and for all, we could suddenly get past all the smoke and finally down to the flaming hulk of the Clinton campaign. You think the left won't clamor to set aside the two-term limit as "more of a suggestion, really" to run the "reasonable" Obama (or a surrogate Biden) to save the day against Trump?

Right -- Bernie can't win. But Biden could. And if the indictment came at the right time, Biden would be the surrogate.

That's going to be a job for the historians, unfortunately.

I seriously need to re-read The Prince, don't I? :^)

Why bother, Bike Bubba? Coming soon to your town in 3D.

Electing Biden would be like saying, "We the People of the United States of America give up." But it might be fun, in a bathos kind of way.
