Q) But why did Hillary need to have a private server for her email while Secretary of State? I really don’t understand why she would do that? Maybe she wanted to make sure she was in possession of her emails? But it is so obvious that this is something that should not be done in a position like that. Do you have an answer?
A) Hillary has always been an extremely secretive control freak. She should never have had a private server. I believe it was illegal and that she should be prosecuted. But that is not going to happen as long as the Democrats hold the White House. It probably never will happen. We all know that while we pay lip service to democracy, fairness, justice, and so forth, the truth is that wealthy and powerful people get away with murder.
Q) I think Hillary’s responsibility for Benghazi was marginal. Maybe she was a little lax, but we have to remember that as Secretary of State she had a lot of things on her plate and stuff like Benghazi is supposed to be taken care of by lower ranking officials. Unfortunately, she didn’t have a particularly good team.
A) What I really fault her for is being a champion of the policy to depose and get rid of Ghadaffi. He was a difficult guy, but he wasn’t causing us any particular trouble and he had Libya under control. I wish he were back. I think Clinton has long been guilty of two things. She shapes her positions to the prevailing conventional, liberal wisdom. She is also a believer in the use of force and prone to rush in where angels fear to tread. Many people say she is well qualified to be President because she is experienced, but so much of her experience has caused catastrophe to others that it makes me think that good judgment is more to be desired than experience.
