46. I know, right?

She has never even been indicted, just accused of a lot of stuff by political enemies that, upon further examination, has no merit whatsoever. Every single "scandal" ginned up by the right-wing has turned up snake eyes. Even upon further examination and despite the FBI investigation and Comey's harsh rhetoric, the brouhaha over her private e-mail server didn't really amount to much more than, at worst, a bad idea and not quite in line with "best practice".
She (and Susan Rice- who she lost her chance for promotion to SOS because of it) had nothing more to do with the deaths of the ambassadors in Benghazi than Colin Powell and/or Condi Rice did with the deaths of all of the diplomats that happened on their watch and the whole Benghazi situation was (pardon the pun) "trumped up" beyond all semblance of reason. The ONLY thing that Republicans seem to have on the Obama Administration regarding Benghazi is that there was some initial, albeit typical, confusion about the motive(s) for the attack, which, of course, even if they knew for sure what the motive(s) were, wouldn't have changed anything. Improved security funding BY CONGRESS might have helped some but then again, maybe not. The real "scandal" for me about Benghazi is that the deaths of four diplomats was investigated more times than the 3000 deaths that occurred on 9/11/01 and the 60 or so deaths that occurred at various diplomatic posts during the Bush II (mis-)administration and that Hillary was more widely attacked and demonized for Benghazi than George W. Bush and his subordinates ever were for 9/11/01.
