Hillary is a Scorpio - Oct. 26. The sting is on ... Wait for it.
Well rehearsed by her husband Bill and other members of her political machine, Hillary stood her ground endured 11 hours of Benghazi hearings aimed more at finding attack ad soundbites than facts. She will win out in the end.
2015 appearance before House Select Committee on Benghazi
The New York Times reported that "the long day of often-testy exchanges between committee members and their prominent witness revealed little new information about an episode that has been the subject of seven previous investigations...Perhaps stung by recent admissions that the pursuit of Mrs. Clinton's emails was politically motivated, Republican lawmakers on the panel for the most part avoided any mention of her use of a private email server."
The email issue did arise shortly before lunch, in a "a shouting match" between Republican committee chair Trey Gowdy and two Democrats, Adam B. Schiff and Elijah E. Cummings. Late in the hearing, Representative Jim Jordan, Republican of Ohio, accused Clinton of changing her accounts of the email service, leading to a "heated exchange" in which Clinton "repeated that she had made a mistake in using a private email account, but maintained that she had never sent or received anything marked classified and had sought to be transparent by publicly releasing her emails."
Grilling of Hillary Clinton misfired CNN - October 23, 2015
Notwithstanding a particularly bizarre Clinton laughing fit at the end of a long day, Clinton supporters believe she maintained a "presidential" demeanor under a determined attack by a well-prepared, Republican-dominated committee seeking her political destruction. Clinton's political opponents will disagree, saying her failure to order enough security cost the lives of four Americans. The fact is that in politics, as in baseball, most people will by now have picked their team and are not about to switch -- whatever may have happened at the hearing. Still, it sure would have been interesting to see what kind of "presidential demeanor" Donald Trump would have maintained under such an intense and aggressive attack.
