Read the book "Our Town". It will make you want to take a shower. DC is littered with politicians and journalists that are about nothing more that personal enrichment. Right and Left. At least the Clinton's are surrounded by others with similar values.

As of 2013, Clinton Global Initiative members have made more than 2,300 commitments, which have improved the lives of over 400 million people in more than 180 countries. When fully funded and implemented, these commitments will be valued at $73.5 billion. Yes, that does take fundraising.

liora51, "Why do corporations always need more money?" Because that's what corporations do...make money.

The real question is who gave the green light to the liberal media machine to begin destroying Hillary for 2016?

kleindropper: "The real question is who gave the green light to the liberal media machine to begin destroying Hillary for 2016?" Liberals do not march in lockstep. Down has her opinion which is not shared by many on the left. And it is the far-right media monolith whose job it is to smear Hillary between now and her election (and beyond, I'm sure).

At least Perez Hilton gives merit to his accusations and reasons for his meanness. This was a horrible hack piece.

"And it is the far-right media monolith whose job it is to smear Hillary between now and her election"

Unfortunately, there is no far right media. I would like to see Hillary get half as much in smears as the liberal main stream media gave Romney in the last election.

jimjimjimjim - [Unfortunately, there is no far right media. I would like to see Hillary get half as much in smears as the liberal main stream media gave Romney in the last election.] *** What you say is true, there are plenty of left wing outlets but very, very few right wing news media sources. The only news outlet that has a presence on cable TV is Fox, which offers a more neo-con perspective...there is no news source that offers people the libertarian point of view...which is why it's always attacked from every direction, Fox, CNN, MSNBC and pretty much every other cable news channel. Even talk radio tends towards the the Fox News/Neo-Con viewpoint, while there is an occasional libertarian (i.e. Jason Lewis) the airwaves are flooded by pretty much every other political viewpoint other than the libertarian perspective.
