I think there is little doubt Hillary Clinton is going to run for President in 2016 if there’s any way she possibly can.
Here is video from the interview CBS News’ “60 Minutes” did with Hillary Clinton and President Obama last night. In this clip, Hillary Clinton comments on her health. She admits to having “lingering effects from falling on my head.” When asked about the glasses she now wears, Hillary said, “Yeah, I have some lingering effects from the concussion that are decreasing and will disappear.”
Here is video of Cal Thomas spelling out how the Media’s protective treatment of Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi Testimony is paving the way for them to work overtime to make her the first female President – just as they worked to make Barack Obama the first African-American President.
Last night Florida senator Marco Rubio sat down for an interview with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren to discuss the testimony given today by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton regarding Benghazi.
During the interview, Greta asks Rubio if he thought Clinton was “candid”.
“She tried to answer to the questions that were asked. I think time will tell, you know, time will tell whether some things she said bared out to be true or not. I mean these things have a way of flushing themselves out. To say the opposite, I’m not going to sit here and accuse the secretary of lying. I’m going to tell you I’m concerned about some of her answers. The reason why I’m concerned about some of her answers is I still do not understand how it can be that a high profile place like Libya, with the amount of dangerous situations out of there already occurred, with all the information coming into the government to the U.S., that in Libya not only was it a dangerous place – Benghazi in particular was dangerous – and that there were Islamist fundamentalist radical elements that were organizing and training in the vicinity.
Here is what I don’t believe. I don’t believe that the only people who were aware of what a bad situation it was were the mid-level people that resigned. I think it was clear from her testimony today that she as aware of how Libya was, although obviously she says that there was no way she could have known it would turn into this.
Watch the entire interview above.
On Hillary Clinton’s testimony on Capitol Hill yesterday about the Benghazi Terror Attack, Charles Krauthammer points out the obvious question that was never asked: Why can’t we hear from the witnesses who were there and survived the attack? It’s been more than four months, and not one of the dozens of survivors have been heard from publicly.
Here is video of Sean Hannity tonight talking to Sen. Rand Paul about his very direct exchange with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about the Benghazi Terror Attack.
Here is video of Sen. Rand Paul just hammering Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at Senate Hearings today on the Benghazi Terror Attack Scandal. Rand Paul told Clinton that “Had I been President at the time. . . I would have relieved you of your post.”
Here is video of a testy Hillary clinton on Capitol Hill today where she finally appeared to answer questions on the Benghazi Terrorist Attack scandal. Clinton was visibly upset at Sen. Ron Johnson, and finally said, “What difference, at this point, does it make” who the killers were? Johnson had been making the point that it is impossible to believe Clinton and others in the Obama Administration did not know it was a terrorist attack.
Here is video of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responding to questions today about the Algerian Hostage Crisis. Clinton called the situation “very fluid,” and said she could not give much detail about what is going on there.
Just a few moments ago, I heard a report on radio that some kind of rescue attempt has been conducted, but there was no word yet as to the success or outcome of the raid. Some Americans along with dozens of other foreigners were taken captive by Al-Qaeda Terrorists at the Natural Gas facility in Algeria.
Former President Bill Clinton commenting on Hillary Clinton’s health:
“She’s always been very, very healthy. . . I tell her that, you know, she’s got time to have three more husbands after me. So, I think she’ll live to be 120.”
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been admitted to New York Presbyterian Hospital and is being treated for a blood clot that has resulted from the concussion she suffered in a recent fall. She is reportedly being treated with anti-coagulants and will be monitored over the next 48 hours in the hospital.
GRETAWIRE: @AP: BREAKING: State Department: Ill Hillary Rodham Clinton faints, has concussion, now recovering at home . . .
UPDATE: The AP article reports she will now likely not testify before Congress on Benghazi next week as had been scheduled:
“Congressional aides do not expect her to testify as scheduled at congressional hearings on Thursday into the Sept. 11 attack against a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador.”

Here is video of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in an interview with Barbara Walters last night, where she discussed her political future. Clinton said “Right now, I have no intention of running” for President in 2016.
The “right now” qualifier gives her plenty of wiggle-room to run later. I believe she will run.
