I actually don't hate Hillary. I supported her vehemently, at one point. I went to hear her at a campaign rally, in 2008, and was even in the paper
looking like a crazed-starstruck Elvis fan shaking her hand. My one IRL face-to-face with Bill, I said, "You're the best president we ever had!" I
still believe that....in some ways.
BUT, I had an epiphany, at some point. I realized that I had no leg to stand on saying Bush & Co., Obama, etc... were getting away with criminal
behavior if i didn't at least look in my own favorite candidate's backyard with the same cynicism.
It's true. What democrats in that hearing today collectively said, is a testament to how effective the partisan blame game is at deflection. "This is
just partisan/political cherrypicking by the GOP." "Republicans got away with the same."
I am listening to democrats. I hear their argument and don't really like it.
This kind of partisan deflection needs to be neutered and it starts with me.
I looked at Hillary the same as I did Bush, Obama, etc... And I know she's as worthy as anyone to be the first to be held accountable. I'm sorry it
has to start with her -- for me -- but it has to start somewhere and so be it if it's her.
(...but it won't start here, I know. Still have to advocate for that though.)
