One particular quarrel that a Hillary Clinton nomination would bring forward is the quarrel over the ethical standards of the Clinton White House -- and, maybe even more, of the Clintons' post-White House careers. Relying on Hillary Clinton's annual financial disclosure reports, CNN reported last year that former President Bill Clinton had earned $89 million in speaking fees since leaving the White House in 2001. Many of these earnings came from foreign sources. In 2011 alone, the former president earned $6.1 million from 16 speeches in 11 foreign countries.

Is it an ethical problem for the husband of the person charged with the foreign affairs of the United States to earn so much foreign-sourced income? Let's rephrase that question: How much time do Democrats wish to spend arguing the ethics of Bill Clinton's foreign earnings over the 2016 political cycle?

She needs to bow out immediately.

But that might hurt her speaking fees.

So she won't.

But do you have any specific factual rebuttal to make to the op? Maybe someone should have told Bill not to do drugs.

"his would be a real debate that would summon forth hard thinking about how Democrats might govern their country if returned for a third presidential term (as could very well happen, given the continuing political weakness of the GOP).
A Hillary Clinton campaign would want to shut down any such debate before it starts. It would want to inherit the Democratic nomination and then the presidency as an estate in reversion: a debt long owed, now collected. If successful, it would arrive in office without a platform and without much of a mandate. That's not a formula for an effective presidency -- or a healthy democracy."

She hasn't earned it and she's not entitled.

We need to end presidential political dynasties in America.

No more Clintons. No more Bushes.

I'm not a GOPer. Ethics doesn't apply to the Dems too? The Dems have rightfully made similar ethics complaint against Reps. Address the substance please, not the politics.

Hillary is just a distraction for the right wingers.

They are falling over themselves trying to figure out who will run in 2016 so they can sick the attack dogs on them right now.

Get ready, it will be someone you least expect.

Bill and Hillary has always been a mistake, not just in 2016. The economy today is a result of Bill Clinton.

She is looking more and more like George Washington everyday for sure. As a politician shes on the "Best" short list. The republican taliban had to scrape the bottom of the barrell just to find a patsy like Mittwit. Besides....the voting public well remember the legacy of geedubya. It will take a full generation past before and republican taliban insurgent has any real shot at the White House.

she is looking more and more like George Washington... except george died a hero and hillary is just a walking dead woman. She is the true taliban in that she wants to dictate how everyone will behave and what they will eat , where they will live and how much money they will be allowed to keep.
She is a Dictator and she won't be elected, there aren't enough old hippies to vote her in.

At the rate "democrats" reproduce and kill each other two generations will pass before the next election and don't forget the democrats who cannot reproduce because their parts don't fit each other (HIV mortality too). I think the republicans will be just fine.
