Not one mention of the 20 or more scandals involving Clinton's dodgy financial dealings via the Clinton Foundation; the Whitewater travesty; her travel office staff fiasco; mysterious deaths of former supporters turned whistle blowers; lies and misdemeanours regarding the Benghazi attack; and continued defence of a spouse who should have been impeached and if HC becomes POTUS, will strut the political stage once more, proving that if you have enough money you are above the law. Finally, Ms Maddox failed to mention that HC is currently under investigation by 147 FBI investigators who think they have a good case for indictment around her private emails and non-governmental server, results of which will hopefully come to light in May. Rather than her ending up in the White House, her past record and utter contempt for due process better equip her to a more secure institution ie a US prison facility. She really does need a reality check and her gender alone certainly is NOT a reason to be supporting such a hypocritical, power-hungry liar.MillenialApril 21, 2016 at 17:02You're right about the issues of "trust," although misdirected as to where it comes from. It's not "a feeling that she has not been open enough." It's a feeling that she will say anything she has to in order to be given power again. There's no debating that Hillary is, to use a term the electorate used 12 years ago, a "flip-flopper," it has been proven time and time again. We have seen her cater her responses to polls, but right now, those polls only consist of Democrats. When those polls open up the selection process to the general electorate, she will change her position again. This is what drives the trustworthiness argument, and it's very easy to see it will not go away.eddingApril 23, 2016 at 22:34What a crock. Hillary is a serial war criminal whose competence and blatant disregard of international and domestic law and her clear conflicts of interest should disqualify her from serving in any governmental position, let alone the Presidency of the United States, and her experience and record bear it out.
