Huh?

According to a new Zogby poll, 45% of Americans fear high levels of corruption if Hillary Clinton returns to office.

What? I’m sorry, maybe I didn’t hear correctly? As opposed to the low levels of corruption we are enjoying now?

The tripling of paid lobbyists on K Street? The ethics ‘reform’ that means politicians are still enjoying lunches and paid vacations from those lobbyists? A representative soliciting a teen page for sex? No-bid contracts offered to the vice president’s old company? Leaking the name of a CIA operative to exact revenge on her truth-telling husband? Congressional votes in exchange for pork/lobby money? Who is being kidded?

Bill Clinton’s presidency was a little before my time. But getting blown by a White House intern does not hurt the country, or its finances, or take money from its tax payers. I cannot believe the Clintons had scandals to match these.

I mean maybe there will be corruption under Hillary Clinton but can it possibly top the amount now? Will there be less corruption under McCain or Obama or Edwards?

    Betcha Hillary doesn’t have sex in the oval office.

    But …. more important …… I hope that the next president doesn’t appoint cronies to all the important positions or use signing statements or recess appointments all the time.
