Why Hillary Is Not Inevitable: Bill’s Sordid Past

The new public scrutiny of Bill Cosby is also problematic for Bill Clinton. I am not talking about consensual sex but, in some cases accusations of sexual assault, torn clothing, and at least three victims who say he bit their lips as a disarming move and to get them to remain silent. In short, Bill Clinton has a Bill Cosby problem.

Eileen Wellstone, 19-year-old English woman said Clinton sexually assaulted her after she met him at a pub near the Oxford where Clinton was a student in 1969. In fact Clinton was expelled from Oxford and earned no degree there.

Juanita Broaddrick, a volunteer in Clinton’s gubernatorial campaign, said he raped her in 1978. Mrs. Broaddrick suffered a bruised and torn lip, which she said she suffered when Clinton bit her during the rape. Broaddrick gave a stunning interview to NBC’s Lisa Myers about the assault.

  1. I would compare the Clintons to another President. President Cleveland was just as bad. He got a teen age girl pregnant during his first term. The scandal ruined him politically at the time. Later he got re-elected because the man in the office was so bad that they put Cleveland back in despite his morale problems.
    The problem is that Bill Clinton was not that bad a president after all when compared with his successors. But President Clinton definitely had a problem with the women in his life.
    Now Hillary Clinton wants to try her hand at being President? She does have name value as a candidate simply because people know her.
    A known name is valuable in getting the popular vote.
    Also there is the matter of experience. She is experienced both in being mate to the President in the past and being Secretary of State under President Obama.
    The President of this country has a lot of mistakes to correct from previous administrations. And there lies the fly in the ointment.
    On the one hand, if she puts together a political move to become President, she has to have solutions to those problems.
    Don’t really know any potential candidate that has solutions to the current problems we are going to be dealing with in the near future.
    There is a problem with the current President being very unpopular right now. He is from the same political party as Hillary. He has shared an administration with her. So one move the Democrats could make is to give her a chance knowing she is a woman and that in itself might get her in with the women’s vote. Yet also knowing if she loses, they have a sympathy vote for other candidates in the future.
    Or both parties might produce a clean slate of potential Presidents from the governors of states in office right now.
    The question becomes is it better to start over with an unknown candidate or to stay with someone everyone knows?
    I suggest both political parties get their acts together and thoroughly investigate the background of any candidate that they put forward in the next election. Make very sure they are clean of any kind of misbehavior whatsoever before they run for office. Now that might actually work. The chances of either party doing any such thing is fairly remote.
