    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
    Democrat supporters.

    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
    the ring.

    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 Hillary making another run for president, don’t get caught
    up in the lies and spin! In “Hillary Unhinged: In Her Own
    Words,” find out who the true Hillary is with this raw and
    humorous collection of quotes that pitilessly underscores her

    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.

    2) Covering Bill’s dirty deeds

    The Clintons have been accused of hiring private investigators
    to not only dig up dirt on perceived adversaries – such as
    Juanita Broaddrick, the woman allegedly raped by Bill, and other
    abused women such as Gennifer Flowers, Kathleen Willey and Paula
    Jones – but to stalk, scare and threaten them. Willey asserts
    Hillary was behind a campaign of intimidation and harassment
    against her that fit a pattern employed against numerous other
    women whose claims of sexual impropriety or assault by Bill
    Clinton threatened the couple’s political fortunes.

    As WND reported, Willey and her husband, Ed, were Democratic
    activists who founded Virginians for Clinton and helped send
    Bill and Hillary to the White House in 1992. While serving as a
    volunteer in the White House and facing financial hard times,
    Willey says she met with Bill Clinton in the Oval Office to
    request a paying position. But instead of getting help, she
    says, she was subjected to “nothing short of serious sexual
    harassment.” Distraught, Willey fled Clinton’s presence, only to
    discover that her husband Ed had committed suicide that same
    tragic afternoon. Later, she was drawn “unwillingly” into the
    Paula Jones lawsuit, the Ken Starr investigation and impeachment

    Willey, author of the 2007 book, “Target: Caught in the
    Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton,” has claimed the Clinton
    tag team used mob-style intimidation campaign to keep her
    silent, even purportedly breaking into her home to steal her
    memoirs of the events.

    Despite Bill’s 20 years of alleged and admitted extra-marital
    relationships, Hillary famously came to his defense shortly
    after the Monica Lewinsky affair broke in 1998. Asked about the
    accusations, the then-first lady said, “Certainly, I believe
    they’re false. Absolutely.”

    Then, in a memorable interview with the “Today” show’s Matt
    Lauer, she explained years of accusations by women such as
    Willey, Gennifer Flowers and Dolly Kyle Browning: “Bill and I
    have been accused of everything, including murder, by some of
    the very same people who are behind these allegations,” she
    said, pointing to a “vast right-wing conspiracy. … So from my
    perspective this is part of a continuing political campaign
    against my husband.”

    What makes a book about Bill and Hillary Clinton so explosive
    that someone would STEAL it? Kathleen Willey tells America the
    shocking story in her book, “Target: Caught in the Crosshairs of
    Bill and Hillary Clinton.”

    Later, however, when placed under oath, Bill Clinton admitted to
    an affair with Flowers, as he did with Lewinksy. But Hillary’s
    actions, Willey contends, indicated by word and deed that her
    main concern was to ensure her husband’s proclivities didn’t
    ruin their political careers.

    In her book, Willey cites sources who contend Hillary began
    engaging private investigators during their time in Arkansas so
    she could head off any repercussions from her husband’s
    behavior. The first to be dispatched were her own father and
    brother when she committed to marry Bill, according to author
    Jerome Levin in “The Clinton Syndrome.” Bill had left Yale
    University for Arkansas to teach law, and she went to work in
    Washington, D.C.

    When Bill was governor, Hillary sent out a group of
    investigators known at the “Truth Squad” to discourage many of
    her husband’s lovers from going public.

    Sounds like Obama and his gay boyfriends...
