Hillary Rodham Clinton is getting great press for her new book “Hard Choices”, after all controversy sells.  I’m going to Vegas and betting this will be a Best Seller.  No, I didn’t blue-line it here, I refuse to help her sell her book, as if she needs help.

Unless you aren’t breathing, by now you’ve heard about the chapter on Benghazi.  Here is the comment creating all the excitement:      “I will not be a part of a political slugfest on the back of dead Americans.  It’s just wrong, and it’s unworthy of our great country.”   Now here is a quote from me……”Spoken like a true politician about to go on the campaign trail.”   This is typical of how our so-called leaders deal with difficult matters, by not taking any responsibility or facing accountability.   That is what she is telling me.

Does she really think she is going to avoid a political slugfest as a candidate?  Hillary’s comment will be like pouring gasoline on a fire, from partisan and non-partisan candidates.

I don’t know if Hillary Clinton is responsible for what happened to our people in Libya or not.   I do know she was in a position to be more responsible than she apparently was, along with our President and other government officials.  It’s difficult to place our trust in our leaders when events such as Benghazi occur on their watch.

Hillary, you may be or become a great author someday.    I would rather see you write more articles and books; whether they are non-fiction or fiction, as of now it’s difficult to tell the difference.

We have only just begun.
