    9 Ways Hillary Clinton Could Still Lose The Nomination

    From that bastion of conservative thought, HuffPo...

    9 Ways Hillary Clinton Could Still Lose The Nomination



    1 FBI
    Forget Trey Gowdy and his political parlor act. If there’s a lingering concern for Clinton, it’s the current scrutiny that the FBI is giving her email server. It’s easier today than it was yesterday to frame the Benghazi committee’s interest in her emails as partisan politics. That won’t be as simple if FBI director James Comey finds anything amiss.
    2 BERNIE SANDERS
    Joe Biden’s departure from a race he never started will be good for Clinton's national poll numbers. But lots of Democratic voters in Iowa and New Hampshire are feeling the Bern. It’s getting harder to not take Sanders’ chances seriously.
    3 BILL CLINTON
    We know Bill Clinton can close the deal. Surely he’s already been slotted for prime time at the Democratic Convention. Now we have to get through the part of the campaign season where he says self-sabotaging things.
    4 CLINTON FOUNDATION
    Don’t underestimate the power of this cash-for-goodwill karma laundry in keeping corporate plutocrats in Clinton's fold. But don’t forget that this creakily managed charity’s missteps will also be under an electron microscope.
    5 TEAM HILLARY
    In 2008, Clinton was never better than when she was debating -- after all, it was her safe space from her often fractious, sometimes incompetent campaign team. Those who served as her chief dysfunctionaries back then have been replaced by new blood this time around, but those who forget history, yadda yadda.
    6 THE LIBYA CRITIQUE
    The most charitable thing you can say about the Benghazi committee is that it might have aided the cause of pinning Libya on Clinton. Of course, it was Clinton who called the Libyan intervention “smart power at its best.” But Libya is, at the moment, a mess. Sanders or O’Malley have an opening to exploit, if they want it.
    7 JOE BIDEN
    The Phantom Menace: It was never really clear what sort of contrast he offered to voters who were “meh” on Clinton, but the fact that Biden's still taking shots at her suggests he’s not quite done being an antagonist.
    8 ELIZABETH WARREN
    The Force Awakens: No, she’s not running for president. But Warren still looms large as an animating power for the Democratic base. Clinton is not Warren by a long shot -- but she’s got to convince a lot of primary voters that she’s close enough.
    9 MARTIN O'MALLEY
    We guess you can’t rule out the possibility of an out-of-left-field O’Malley surge -- but it had better happen soon!

    Very true. Some of those things aren't very likely. But as the article points out, it's only October.

    Yeah, no one can see into the future.

    She should be in prison if the FBI does their job. The real questions is whether our Justice Department is totally corrupt now. We'll see. I have little faith in any U.S. Department not being politicized by the left anymore.

    My personal favorite was the O'Malley surge.

    18 USC Sec. 1924, which outlaws the unauthorized removal and storage of classified information. Penalties can include fines and imprisonment for up to one year.

    18 USC Sec. 793, a more serious felony statute Farrell described as a “hammer.”

    Federal Records Act, passed in 1950: The head of each Federal agency shall make and preserve records containing adequate and proper documentation of the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, and essential transactions of the agency and designed to furnish the information necessary to protect the legal and financial rights of the Government and of persons directly affected by the agency’s activities. (44 U.S. Code 3101)

    Pensito Review Flashback: Rove Erases 22 Million White House Emails on Private Server at Height of U.S. Attorney Scandal ? Media Yawns

    And Rove and Cheney and Bush, too?

    This scandal is bogus and is only being pushed because the GOP knows without it, Hillary will be the next president.

    Once again, you have absolutely nothing to offer.
