No, actually she’s a Dem, in the news last year + over several contentious investigations against mainly Republicans in PA State government. Both her Prosecutor and the Judge in this dust-up are Republicans.

Who needs “half the country” to get elected ? Ask Karl Rove & GW Bush.

I believe NG was warning you of CG’s TROLL “status”…that you need not waste your words by feeding his pathetic need for attention – but, you apparently have already sussed that out yourself…welcome to the club.
Your memory seems to have skipped a decade or two. Kennedy accomplished much, and Johnson (despite the errors in Vietnam). Eisenhower would have been a competent Democrat, too, by the standards of the Neo-Conservatives who subsumed the “24 hour News cycle” media in the early ‘90s, with the crowning touch of Mr. Murdoch’s Fox News in ’96.
…Yet the Big, Left-wing WSJ says “Not”: “The 2014 overhaul, which postdates Mrs. Clinton’s tenure at the State Department, placed explicit limits on agency officials using private email accounts for official business. The new law said agency officials can’t create or send a government record on a private account unless they also copy or forward the email to their official government email address.” – http://www.wsj.com/articles/hillary-clintons-personal-email-use-came-before-recent-rule-changes-1425415233

“Oklahoma voted 76% in opposition to Gay Marriage, but a court decision forced it on them.”
From Wikipedia: "The Court agreed with the Bishop and Baldwin that Part A of the Oklahoma constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The Court applied rational basis review and found the state’s justifications inadequate, including encouraging responsible procreation, optimal child-rearing, and the impact on the institution of marriage. It said that part of the constitutional amendment was “an arbitrary, irrational exclusion of just one class of Oklahoma citizens from a governmental benefit.”

I think Eleri misplaces credit / blame for the demise of Sheppard – Towner. Along with a segment of the AMA, Conservatives, lead by Elizabeth Lowell Putnam and others, who, presaging Joe McCarthy, brow-beat, black-mailed and black-listed members and leaders of several “Women’s Rights” groups (including the Daughters of 1812 and the DAR) into support for their “anti-Communist, anti-Government” agenda, smearing those groups in their anti-feminist, anti-poor-maternal, “Not-with-MY-tax-money” Conservative campaign, resulting in Congressional failure to reauthorize funding for the program.
…but thanks, Ms. Harris – never would have been aware of this bit of my Nation’s past.

If you commit /abet an assault (crime) based on fraud and prevarication of which you are unaware…are you still equally culpable for the action ? This is the apparent reason for a large portion of the Democratic (maybe some of the Republican) and world “support” for the 2003 Iraqi invasion. Ineptitude or disinterest in diplomatic solutions is not an excuse for what happened in that war – destruction of a nation to remove it’s leader from power (because he tried to hurt yer Daddy…and YOU have the Power !) with no plan to clean up the mess you create – including caring for your own damaged citizens – and all on the “Credit Card”, because " Reagan proved that deficits don’t matter." ~ D. Cheney…until the “Other Guys” get in office. Unfortunately, you are not “alone” in such “logic”.
The 2003 Iraq Invasion – W’s War – required 21 days of official combat operations, 19 March to 9 April, 2003. Where do you get 4 days ? …from Gulf I (G H W Bush)?
