This nomination was Senator Clinton's nomination to lose. She has done a bang up job of turning people who cared for her, against her. Instead of worrying about the prsidency, she should worry about how this bid will impact her next attempt at maintaining her senatorial seat in New York. I can not imagine that she will be seen in the same way she was seen prior to this attempt to run for the presidency, by anyone. I am afraid that the bloom is off the rose and it may never return.

According to Matthew 12:34, Jesus said, "from the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks." I do not believe this statement would have departed from the lips of Mrs.Clinton were they first not in her heart.
