Hillary The Symbol Vs. Hillary The Politician
Hillary Rodham Clinton has about a 60% chance of being the next President of The United States of America.* and a 40% chance of never getting elected to office again. As an icon to the Progressive Left she is unbeatable in almost any Presidential Match-up against a GOP candidate.

Buzzfeed tries to sling mud at Tim Huelskamp… and hits itself, instead.
If you’ve ever wondered what an embarrassing retraction looks like, here you go. This is one of the more painful ones I’ve seen: Before: “Republican Congressman Says Women ‘Desperately Looking For A Husband’” After: “Republican Congressman Tells Men: Wives ‘Desperately’ Need Their Husbands To Step Up”
