    During his 1992 campaign for the presidency, Bill Clinton was
    fond of promising America, ôYou get two for the price of one,ö
    indicating Hillary Clinton would act as his co-president.

    But the nation got much more than it bargained for, as the top
    power couple brought a load of baggage with them into the White
    House from their days in Arkansas.

    After the Clintons moved into the presidential mansion, the
    political scandals multiplied û from use of the IRS and FBI to
    target political opponents to stalking and harassing subjects of
    Bill ClintonÆs sexual advances and even attempts to loot
    taxpayer-funded items from the White House. Americans also
    witnessed capers such as Travelgate, Chinagate, Filegate and
    Pardongate.

    Bill ClintonÆs sexual escapades and subsequent impeachment by
    the U.S. House of Representatives on charges of perjury and
    obstruction of justice consumed more than a year of American
    public life and bitterly divided the nation.

    In the years since the memorable Clinton presidency, Hillary has
    brought America Emailgate and the Benghazi scandal, among
    others. New developments in the Clinton Foundation scandals
    emerges almost daily.

    Now, itÆs HillaryÆs ôturnö to be president, according to her
    Democrat supporters.

    But in 2015, America is still apparently suffering from ôClinton
    fatigue.ö Results from a Quinnipiac poll published in April
    revealed between 49 and 56 percent of voters in three
    significant swing states û Colorado, Virginia and Iowa û believe
    Hillary is neither honest nor trustworthy.

    Even former California Democratic Party Chairman Bill Press told
    WND that controversies surrounding Hillary should convince
    members of his own party an uncontested coronation of Clinton as
    the partyÆs 2016 nominee for the White House is a very risky
    idea and should encourage other Democrats to throw their hats in
    the ring.

    Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican candidate for president, said
    Sunday he believes voters will reject Hillary because of the
    ôcloud of constant scandal she brings to the political process.ö

    Rubio told Fox News Sunday, ôUnfortunately, both under her
    husbandÆs presidency, her time in the Department of State, her
    campaign for the president last time and even now, there seems
    to be this cloud of constant scandal and things that distract us
    from the core issues of the moment.ö

    HillaryÆs ôdramaö could become a distraction, Rubio warned, at a
    time when the stakes are high for America in the 2016 election.

    ôI just think that at this hinge moment in our history, where we
    are asked to make a transition from the past into this new
    future, with all the challenges and the opportunities of our
    time that we really û the American people are not at a point now
    where they are going to be supportive of more drama surrounding
    the political process,ö he said.

    In 2003, ABC NewsÆ Barbara Walters referenced numerous Clinton
    scandals from Whitewater to Travelgate and the death of Hillary
    law partner Vince Foster in an interview with then-Sen. Clinton.

    Walters asked Hillary, ôHow did you get in this mess where your
    whole credibility is being questioned?ö

    HillaryÆs response: ôOh, I ask myself that every day, Barbara,
    because itÆs very surprising and confusing to me.ö

    With Hillary making another run for president, donÆt get caught
    up in the lies and spin! In ôHillary Unhinged: In Her Own
    Words,ö find out who the true Hillary is with this raw and
    humorous collection of quotes that pitilessly underscores her
    hypocrisy

    With the prospect of another ôtwo-for-oneö Clinton presidency
    looming, is America ready for a repeat of the Bill and Hillary
    ôdramaö in the White House?

    If, as psychologists say, ôThe best predictor of future behavior
    is past behavior,ö then a fresh look at the top 20 scandals
    involving Hillary is in order.

    1) Clintons turn IRS into ægestapoÆ

    Few federal agencies are more feared and loathed by Americans
    than the Internal Revenue Service û especially when corrupt
    presidents abuse the power of the IRS to harass and exact
    revenge on political enemies. As WND has reported, during Bill
    ClintonÆs terms in office, IRS audits were conducted against
    individuals and groups who caused problems for the
    administration. Several prominent conservative groups found
    themselves facing IRS audits following their criticism of the
    president and his policies. Among the conservative groups
    targeted for audits were the Heritage Foundation, the National
    Rifle Association, Concerned Women of America, Citizens Against
    Government Waste, National Review, American Spectator (which was
    burglarized three times), the National Center for Public Policy
    Research, the American Policy Center, American Cause, Citizens
    for Honest Government, Progress and Freedom Foundation, David
    HorowitzÆs Center for the Study of Popular Culture and the
    Western Journalism Center.

    Individuals singled out for audits during the administration
    included Clinton paramours Gennifer Flowers and Liz Ward Gracen,
    sexual assault accusers Paula Jones and Juanita Broaddrick,
    fired White House Travel Office Director Billy Dale and attorney
    Kent Masterson Brown. Fox NewsÆ Bill OÆReilly, an outspoken
    critic of both Bill and Hillary Clinton, said he was audited
    three times during the Clinton presidency.

    A 1996 survey by the Washington Times could not identify a
    single liberal public policy organization that had been audited
    during the entire Clinton administration.

    Sounds like Obama.
