    republicans – PLEASE FOR A CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN – make hillary accountable for all of her shady transactions – you have nothing to loose and could possibly regain some respect from disheartened republicans like me who think you have rolled over one time too many ! show some guts and make hillary answer some really hard questions and explain everything that smells bad!! it's about time somebody made her face the music – be a strong voice and maybe you will get a chance at getting back the house and senate – if not you will be in the minority for a loooong time!!!!

    L Griff:
    A re you really as stupid as your post sounds?????
    Once she is confirmed she can't have any fundraisers or donations to pay off the debt. At that time she will have tp pay off the debt using only her own money.
    Why not actually read up on the law before you make stupid statements.

    Wow when Bill and Hillary were out there supporting Obama everyone loved them so don't forget you morons , without Bill and Hillary Clinton coming out for Obama he would not have got half the support he did in the end, so don't bite that hands that gave you that fool you so desperately wanted. She is the only one that I do trust .

    Tess, we're all past being divided. Our country is in shambles and all you can think about is your party loyalty? A party that screwed us so bad we may not recover and if we do, our children and grandchildren and so on down the line will be paying for YOUR mistake voting republican.

    You can thank your lucky stars Hillary will be SOS. And of scandals...are you serious? Your party is downtrodden with scandal. Don't worry about other kitchens until you clean you own, babe.

    I wonder if this committee will be willing to "suspend their selfish thoughts of disbelief" in confirming Mrs. Rodham? Also, I hope no one accidently knocks off the rather large racist chip on Ms. Rice's shoulder!

    Mrs Clinton will do a great job as SOS, she is well qualified and has one of brightest geopolitical thinkers in recent history as her husband.

    Although republican right wing zeolots will disparage and undermine her at every turn, she will return America's credability, prestige and honor to our foreign policy, after 8 years of sheer lunacy.

    Go team Obama !!

    Hillary will get the last laugh in the end, you idiots can try all you want but this is a done deal and there is nothing that the left wing or right wing nuts can do about it, another intelligent woman handling our countries business.
