Clinton tells 'Daily Show' she wants office with 'fewer corners,' talks Mideast peace

Washington (CNN) - When Jon Stewart gave Hillary Clinton a career aptitude test on the 'Daily Show' Tuesday night, her answers alluded to a presidential bid - and she touched on the disintegration of a Middle East cease-fire she negotiated two years ago.

The former Secretary of State, Senator, First Lady and Cabinet member told the Comedy Central host that she wants a home office.

"Do you have a favorite shape for that home office? Would you like it to have corners?" he asked her.

    Middle East cease-fire; who are you trying to kid; the Middle East is in flames because of you; the Democratic party and the Obama administration failures. We have an office; room like that for you and is lined with padding/rubber and we have a nice new jacket that goes along with it.

    -don't you ever worry about middle-east peace, just worry about Foreign Invasion into USA. Freeze Immigration for fifty years or so. Cut lot of these visas. Good lucks.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the next president of the united states. Eight more years of tantrums, while our country crumbles? You can't vote the gop into power, eliminating taxes on the wealthy and big business, just doesn't help your economy, like it or not.

    Did he ask her why she concocted a lie about a video causing the attack in Benghazi? And then repeated it to the families of the four dead Americans when she knew it was a lie. Didn't think so.

    Can't get anything past you Tommy, how about you ask w and Cheney why they lied, and sent thousands to their inevitable death, while lining their pockets with our tax dollars, your not suggesting only the deaths during a Democrat administration count, and the others don't, surely if your upset about four unpredictable deaths, the 4500 deaths, would garner even more outrage, right?

    Yup, ignore the Republican who sent thousands to die for money, focus on the four deaths that occurred in that same region, destabilized by that very same war you just come up with compassion for, but we believe you really care Tommy, really we do.

    She runs, she wins. It's as simple as that. After the dust settles, here's a point for the republicans to ponder. No.1, Did she win because people are just plain stupid? No. 2, Did she win because your party has been stupid? I pick number 2, because this is the answer that's closer to the truth.

    If she decides to run, there a lot of baggage that the conservatives, GOP and just plain haters of anyone named Clinton will have. Hillary Clinton is as human as anyone else with the ability to screw up. How bad are those screw ups when she was in a position of power is for voters to decide. She has the occasional bout of "foot-in-mouth" disease like anyone else but has them shown to more people because she is a public figure.

    If she does run, we as voters can't just look at the past. We also need to look at her future plans. There are questions as to how realistic are they along with can they get through Congress. If you agree with the policy ideas that she has and ways she wants to implement them, Hillary is the person you should vote for but at least look at what she and other candidates have to say. Review the questions and plans they have.

    The Butcher of Benghazi will certainly run for President. This woman is a disaster for the US

    Don't worry Hillary. We are going to put you in a padded cell.

    Hillary haters must be running scare. Their mean spirited and vulgar comments are sounding a little desperate. All polls show her ahead on a one to one match up with an uninspiring field of GOP candidates. Hillary should reserve a date for the movers to transport her personal belongings into the White House office without corners.

    Hillary Clinton doesn't have presidential traits, neither does the circus of republican contenders, Paul, Christie, Cruz, Ryan or Huckabee. Joe Biden forPresident and Elizabeth Warren as his Vice Presidential running mate.

    Kinard – " She runs, she wins. "

    In 2006, no one would have bet on Barack Obama winning 2 years later.

    Hopefully, another will come out of the woodwork and give us, again, a true leader. And not some coy, prez-wannabe like Hillary.

    .B. Stein – " ... there a lot of baggage that the conservatives, GOP and just plain haters of anyone named Clinton will have. "

    I don't fit any of those categories (Honest, I don't hate Hillary), but I feel that she has no proven leadership capabilities. And she has shown poor judgement ( her vote on Iraq) and near stupidity. (Her 'Restart' button for Putin!) She appears out of touch; she is mainly a media figure.

    " We also need to look at her future plans "

    Generally, she will not make a firm statement about any agenda. What future plans?

    While I don't hate Hillary, I don't want her as our President. We can do much better.
