    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.

    20) Benghazi: 4 American lives lost

    On Sept. 11, 2012, while Hillary was secretary of state, Islamic
    militants attacked a U.S. special mission in Benghazi, Libya,
    and murdered U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and U.S.
    Foreign Service Information Management officer Sean Smith. Two
    CIA contractors, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, were also killed.

    In the months leading up to the attack, Hillary’s State
    Department cut security in Libya. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis.,
    accused Hillary of “dereliction of duty” that led to the deaths
    of the four Americans.

    “The State Department not only failed to honor repeated requests
    for additional security, but instead actually reduced security
    in Libya,” Johnson wrote in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
    “Although no one can say with certainty, I firmly believe a
    relatively small contingent of armed military guards would have
    prevented the attack, and those four lives would not have been

    In “The REAL Benghazi Story: What the White House and Hillary
    Don’t Want You to Know,” New York Times bestselling author Aaron
    Klein provides shocking details about the central role Hillary
    Clinton actually played in the scandal

    As WND reported, a security decision finalized personally by
    Hillary may have unwittingly doomed the Americans in Benghazi.
    Hillary herself signed waivers that allowed the facility to be
    legally occupied, since it did not meet the minimum official
    security standards set by the State Department. The waiver
    legally allowed the CIA annex to be housed in a location about
    one mile from the U.S. special mission.

    According to accounts from Benghazi survivors, the delayed
    response time by those at the CIA annex may have cost the lives
    of Stevens and the three other Americans killed at the special
    mission. If the CIA annex had been co-located with the U.S.
    special mission, a rapid response team would have been on site
    during the initial assault in which Stevens was killed.
    Clinton’s waiver allowed the CIA annex to be housed at the
    separate location.
    As WND also reported, State Department emails show Clinton knew
    while the attack was under way that it was being carried out by

    Judicial Watch has obtained previously classified documents from
    the U.S. Department of Defense and the Department of State
    revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack
    on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was planned and
    carried out by al-Qaida and Muslim Brotherhood-linked
    terrorists. A federal court ordered the government hand over
    more than 100 pages of previously secret documents that showed
    then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other senior Obama
    officials were given reports within hours of the Sept. 11, 2012,
    attack. In those memos, the DOD described details of a plan 10
    days in advance “to kill as many Americans as possible.”

    Nonetheless, Hillary falsely blamed it on “rage and violence
    over an awful Internet video” when she spoke at a ceremony at
    Andrews Air Force Base on Sept. 14, 2012, as the remains of the
    four Americans were returned to the U.S.

    To this day, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., says the State Department
    has failed to comply with requests for information about

    Sounds like Obama was a coward and refused to do his job...
