In the parallel universe wherein Hillary Clinton had paid more attention to Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin and had converted her solid popular-vote plurality into a victory, Republicans would have very likely discarded Trump as a leader and returned (despite their own regular problems with sexual misconduct in the ranks of their elected officials) to the more sanctimonious posture of sexual rectitude they exhibited when trying to remove Bill from office. You can bet the Republican Congress the Clintons would have faced upon moving into the White House in 2017 would have been extremely interested in investigating the old claims against Bill given his renewed national prominence as First Gentleman, and there might well have been some prosecutors testing the statutes of limitations involving his alleged crimes. … [Read more...] about How Would We Deal With Bill Clinton If Hillary Had Won?

And don't forget, she was responding to this script that the Sanders campaign gave to their volunteer callers to say Elizabeth Warren is an elitist, she is not going to be able to expand the base of the party.
