We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Whatever excuse they tell themselves, many of her supporters are just not affected by any level of dishonesty. There is literally nothing Hillary could do to make them say "All right, that's enough! I just can't take it anymore!" Jonathan Haidt's work has recently been very informative to me on that score. Human beings put a good-enough excuse in place, and if we want to stand pat, better reasoning does not move us. The long litany is enough: Politics is a dirty business...they all do it...her critics are exaggerating...it just shows that she's tough...
The standard political advice is not to even listen to what such people say and do not attempt to answer them. Address only those who might be persuaded.

The sleaze is endless. Can't the Dems find a better candidate? Like Biden or somebody?
Many rank & file Dems are trying to elect Bernie. The Dem establishment wants Hillary and they are all liars (http://www.democrats.org/about/our-history).
Part of the reason they get away with it is the taking heads have made a career out of making excuses and hiding the facts about what the Clintons have done. I would bet 95% of potential Clinton voters (Bill or Hillary) would be surprised if they viewed this video because they have never heard these things before. And they would be so preconditioned by the excuses from the talking heads that they would deny it was true and believe instead it is all Republican dirty tricks.
The MAIN reason they get away with is: that the people who know where all the Clinton skeletons are buried, end up buried with those skeletons themselves! And Clinton operatives are not afraid to remind everyone of that fact!
Vince Foster is one among too, too many, who paid a dear price in dealing with the Clinton Crime Family.
