    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.

    21) Peter Franklin Paul: Another Hillary friend goes to prison

    As WND reported, Hillary was named in a lawsuit brought by Peter
    Franklin Paul for allegedly directing to her 2000 Senate
    campaign an illegal, in-kind contribution from Paul that
    included a fundraiser at the exclusive Spago restaurant in
    Beverly Hills, a tea hosted at the Beverly Hills home of
    socialite Cynthia Gershman and a lavish, A-list, million-dollar-
    plus Hollywood gala honoring Bill Clinton. At the trial of
    Clinton’s finance director for the 2000 senatorial campaign,
    David Rosen, the government told the jury Paul personally gave
    more than $1.2 million to produce the events.

    Paul, a former business partner of Spider-Man creator Stan Lee
    who sued Bill for fraud and accused Hillary of hiding nearly $2
    million in Senate campaign donations, alleged they sabotaged the
    media company he formed with Lee to get out of a $17 million
    agreement made with Bill Clinton to serve as an international
    promoter for the company after he left the White House. Paul was
    indicted in June 2001 for manipulating the price of the stock in
    his company, Stan Lee Media, as it was collapsing. A judge
    determined Paul didn’t profit from the attempt to save his
    company, but he accepted a plea bargain and served three years
    in prison. WND reported in 2012 that Paul charged Attorney
    General Eric Holder and his Justice Department obstructed
    justice by reneging on a sentencing agreement.

    “Hillary is carrying out her promise to finally destroy my
    family to punish me for exposing the corruption that elected her
    to the Senate,” Paul told WND at the time.

    The Clintons were effusive in their praise of Paul until just
    days after an August 2000 Hollywood gala, when the Washington
    Post reported Paul’s 1970s criminal convictions in a story that
    accused the senator of being soft on crime. Clinton continued,
    however, to quietly solicit money from Paul and sent him letters
    expressing friendship. Paul has extensive video corroborating
    his contention he and Hillary spent hours together and sat next
    to each other at the fundraising events.

    Sounds like Obama and his Democrat friends...
