    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
    Pardongate.

    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
    hypocrisy

    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.

    3) Looting the White House

    WHITE HOUSE-300When the Clintons left 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
    in 2001, they reportedly vandalized and looted the White House.
    Hillary tried to ship furniture to the Clintons’ personal home
    in Chappaqua, New York. The Clintons came under fire when they
    reportedly tried to take $190,000 in gifts and furnishings from
    the presidential mansion. Additionally, the General Accounting
    Office, an investigative arm of Congress, reported that ”damage,
    theft, vandalism and pranks did occur in the White House
    complex” during the presidential transition from Bill Clinton to
    George W. Bush – including the theft of a presidential seal.
    According to the General Accounting Office, the cost of the
    White House vandalism reached about $14,000 and included $4,850
    to replace computer keyboards with damaged or missing “W” keys.
    The agency said some of the destruction was intentional,
    including glue smeared on desks, broken furniture, offices full
    of trash and graffiti in a men’s restroom stall that disparaged
    Bush. There were also missing doorknobs, medallions and office
    signs.

    During their time in the White House, the Clintons also
    reportedly auctioned off and sold taxpayer-financed government
    goods and services in exchange for political campaign
    contributions and personal profit. Among the items sold by the
    Clintons, which Judicial Watch uncovered in various lawsuits,
    and the media and Congress in their investigations, were: 1)
    seats on overseas trade missions; 2) export licenses for high
    technology sales to communist China and elsewhere; 3)
    commissionerships and judgeships; 4) rides on Air Force One; 5)
    overnight stays in the White House’s Lincoln Bedroom; 6) graves
    at Arlington Cemetery; 7) meetings with key Clinton-Gore
    administration leaders; and other favors.

    Sounds like Obama and Nancy Pelosi...
