The other day, somebody finished their story by saying they can't wait until Hillary Clinton runs in 2016.

I'm trying very hard to see anything important she has done, except marry Bill Clinton.

During the primary in 2008, she lost to Barack Obama. She also told a story about landing at an airport, maybe in Bosnia, under a hail of gunfire. Later we learned it wasn't true, and nothing happened when she landed.

As Secretary of State, she is responsible for the death of our ambassador to Libya and three other Americans. Our ambassador had been asking for more security in the months leading up to 9/11. Instead of adding more security, the State Department pulled two security details out of Libya.

I think anybody with a half-a-brain knows the United States always beefs up security on 9/11.
