LOVELY,

Hillary should go visit east Palo Alto and see how the "Other" half lives. Democrats won't do it- Please look at our current President as proof. All his fundraising efforts in the Silicon Valley and not a visit to the end end of University Avenue.

The host should suggest a drive down there.

Last GOP candidate to visit EPA?

Dems need to get better. Maybe Bernie or Elizabeth will visit.

GOP is too busy prostrating before the Kochs and their inherited wealth, and Sheldon Adelson chinese casino money from Macao.

The SLEAZE machine comes to PV. Not since Nixon have we had politicians who are as corrupt as the Clintons. I don't know of any other charity that dispurses only 10% of its receipts to charitable causes.

Secret servers, deleted emails, donations for favorable State Department rulings, influence peddling, etc: sounds more like a criminal operation than a charity.

I think the main reason she's running for Prez is to head off an indictment.

I wish we Democrats had some other (and younger) choices.

Ronald Reagan had the most corrupt administration ever. 138 indictments and jail terms. More than Nixon.

How about Jim Webb? He has the goods if Hillary were to blow it somehow.

Oh boy -- The Almanac posts a story about Hillary Clinton visiting the area, and the right-wing poster(s) here gone off the edge.

You wish they would stop making such fools of themselves.

Hey Katie,

[part removed.] Reagan was over 20 years ago. Clintons are now. Try and live in the present.

Hey Roger - Reagan, as the most corrupt administration in history, is relevant, when Paula spews her Fox lies about the Clintons.

Millions of tax dollars by Ken Starr to prove that Bill did what half of all men do/did/done. And the other half are liars. jk...

Besides, Reagan sent weapons to IRAN thirty years ago, not 20.

I could spend an hour correcting Paula's other lies.

First Katie, if you want to talk about the most corrupt administration in history look no farther than Obummer. And before him the Clinton's, the one you defend so adamantly. Then take a look at FDR and see what he REALLY did. [part removed. Comment without insulting other posters.]

138 arrests, convictions, jail terms for Reagan and the CRIMINALS in his administration - yet you soak in the Fox lies about President Obama?

Care to comment on the war criminals who lied America into Iraq, and killed 5,000 brave American kids just to screw up the entire middle east?

President Obama is a saint compared to the GOP criminals of the recent past.

And you go all the way back to FDR? He is the hero who saved America fron the First Republican Great Depression. And President Obama saved us fron Bush's Second Great Republican Recession.

Even Fox cannot re-write that history.

[part removed.] But let me help you with a few of your [part removed] misconceptions.

Just about every democrat Senator voted for the authorization to go to war given to President Bush, including your demi-god Hillary Clinton. I could mention the rest, but the list is to long. Suffice to say that all the who's who of the democrat party that had a vote is on that list.

President Obummer is no saint. He barely recognizes the Constitution of the United State, and is at best apathetic to the religion he professes to be a part of. He also has done more to destroy race relations in this country than the KKK could ever dream to do. Don't you see the monumental wasted opportunity this man had and absolutely squandered in the last 7 years...

And as far as FDR goes, I don't want to give you a history/economics lesson here, [part removed. Please post comments without insulting other posters] you would know that we were pulling out of the depression at the time FDR took office, and his policies worsened and deepened the depression. The best thing that happened to him was WWII.

I don't know where you come up with a second recession. The only recession we are in is the one Obummer started and has perpetuated. The fact is Bush economic policies kept us out of recession after 9/11, and would have kept us out of this one except for the election of the community organizer. [part removed.] You should try expanding your horizons to include something other than left wing dribble.
