    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.

    18) Hill ca$hes in: Iranian fundraising

    As WND recently reported, Hillary received funds from an arm of
    the Iranian government and hired a convicted Iranian-American
    multimillionaire with ties to Tehran as her national campaign
    finance director in 2008. The Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton
    Foundation accepted $30,000 between April 2005 and March 2006
    and another contribution of between $25,000 and $50,000 in 2008
    from the New York-based Alavi Foundation, which U.S. government
    prosecutors have identified as an arm of the Iranian government.

    For her 2008 presidential campaign, Clinton hired Hassan Nemazee
    as her national campaign finance director, who was known for his
    efforts to normalize relations with the theocratic Iranian
    regime. In 2010, Nemazee pleaded guilty to running a Ponzi
    scheme in which he obtained $292 million in fraudulent loans. He
    was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

    In his explosive bestseller, ôClinton Cash,ö Peter Schweizer
    follows the Clinton money trail, revealing the connection
    between their personal fortune, their ôclose personal friends,ö
    the Clinton Foundation, foreign nations and some of the highest
    ranks of government.

    Rachel Ehrenfeld, director of the American Center for Democracy,
    spelled out the problem with the Clinton Foundation receiving
    funds from the Alavi Foundation in a Jan. 5, 2009, article
    published by Forbes.

    ôAlaviÆs contribution [in 2008] to Clinton came just two days
    after the Treasury Department also designated AlaviÆs partner,
    the New York-based Assa Corp., as a terrorist entity, and the
    New York Southern DistrictÆs attorney seized and forfeited its
    assets,ö Ehrenfeld wrote.

    Sounds like Obama and his Hollywood butthole buddies.
