    And Hillary? Will she never be held accountable for the things she has said and done or will the media continue to protect her?

    It isn’t necessary for Hillary to tell the Democrats one thing then turn around and tell the general population another. The general population agrees with the Democratic positions on just about everything that is important enough to anyone to influence their vote. And, the margin is getting more in favor of the Democrats as time goes on.

    Republicans on the other hand, have a problem.For at least the last 30-40 years, the Republican party has relied on the Right Wing Religious types to be the energy of their party. The party consisted of them and some Rich Guys who used them to do the work in their campaign offices and run their propaganda machines. (There were ordinary people who voted Republican, but they didn’t run the party).The Rich Guys accomplished this by telling the RWR types that they agreed with them on the issues that mattered to them— birth control, civil rights, abortion, conspicuous exercise of Christian activities ( Christmas displays, public prayer, etc). However, once they got elected, they forgot about those things until the next time they needed the RWR to show up and run the campaign offices, since their actual agenda was to improve conditions for Rich Guys.It took a generation, but eventually, the RWRs figured out that they were getting shafted on a regular basis and decided to take over the party and run RWRs instead of the Rich Guys. The Rich Guys responded by forming superpacs and trying to put enough money into the elections to buy them. Now the RGs have figured out that are either accomplishing nothing with all that money or they are buying the elections for the RWRs, who are no longer believing much of what the Rich Guys say, so they are losing interest in buying the elections at all.Problem for both sides is that the RWRs don’t have enough people to win an election. The Tea Party has a negative rating of around 65%. And, the RGs don’t have enough money to buy enough votes to win an election without them. There is no point in broadcasting an ad 50 times if the majority of voters didn’t believe it the first time they heard it.So, much as they might not get along, have entirely different agendas, and a history that both sides try to ignore, they have no chance of surviving at all without each other. Consequently, the Republican party will try to patch up their differences and present a united front. They simply have no other choice.

    If all the Republican attacks on Hillary haven’t done her in, why should the media bother trying?

    Trump polls high among Republicans,
    and polls at the bottom for everyone else.

    And any dirt dug up by Republicans against Republicans will be happily used by the Democrats.

    @tom

    And Hillary?
    .
    Typical misdirection with zero substantive argument. Boy, you really tell it like it is, doncha?

    I presume you mean the media protecting Hillary from such things as Benghazi. I don’t think it’s the media protecting her, it’s numerous congressional investigations that have found no wrong doing. Which, of course, doesn’t stop the right from demanding more ammunition. Golly gee, maybe they’ll eventually find some little snippet they can manipulate.

    In the primaries, Clinton claims to be left of Sanders. In the general she’ll claim to be a centrist.

    @tom

    Clinton claims to be left of Sanders
    .
    Just curious: from what source did you hear (or infer) that?
