    If you thought she is any different than Bill he is your proof she is not. The only thing she is trying to not lie about is lying. Can we now again begin defining what "is", "is"?

      Hillary and Bill both are adept at playing the political game.  I think she is telling the truth when she says she "always tried" to tell the truth to America.  In the political world (as in the real world) it is not always possible or desirable to tell the truth, so in her mind, her lies don't matter because she views them as a necessary evil.  That's my theory, anyway.

        Well, either that or she doesn't know what the word means.  Just as likely, IMO.

          I think you are right. I know several people who, for all I can tell, have a complete disregard for the truth. But, sometimes it appears that they believe truth is what they can convince the most people to believe.

          There was a time when I though she put up with Bill because the marriage would help her political aspirations. Now, it appears she is just Bill in a skirt.

    Hillary is the expert  of rhetoric ,of brilliance  in politi-speak ,  whenever she opens her mouth I am reminded , seriously , of everything Americans have come to expect from a professional officeholder . IMO  , she has reached the point of absolute professionalism in the art of speaking without  saying .

    Not too many of you today will remember the term "Where's the beef ?"   a question spoken  and briefly made famous in the eighties about a political office wanna-be !      But I hear that question every single time Hillary speaks !

    Cruz, TRUMP, Rubio, Fiorina, Carson, Bush, Romney, Bush W, Gowdy ~ ALL by any MEASURE are categorized as "Chronic LIARS" who make Bill & Hillary look like Mr & Mrs George Washington by comparison ~

    Moreover, the Radical Republican Agenda of attempting to "Shift" even MORE of our WEALTH to Wall Street & Corporate Swindlers is Unacceptable, Immoral & Obscene ~

      Once again your partisan bias is duly noted and makes no difference in the argument. Saying one is more worse as the other is like saying one deadly cancer is better than the other. A liar can never be trusted. And a liar that can't commit to telling the American People the truth is the best we can do?

        So rhamson I guess you'll be "WITHHOLDING" your Vote for the Presidency until which time an "ANGEL" descends and decides to run ?? ~

        P.S. ~ I could easily "Duly Note" Everyone's  "Partisan Bias" ~ Just because an individual fails to be honest by disclosing which side of the political isle he/she resides on, doesn't mean it's not OBVIOUS to the reader ~ smile

          As usual you sprinkle your reply with a polar reaction rather than the obvious. Hillary as much as admitted that she has lied in her statement. Maybe it was a moment of clarity or an effort to clean up something upcoming. We always are left with the reasoning that we must vote for the best candidate we feel is presented. I happen to believe Hillary is not a choice.

            While I'm not a big fan of Hillary, I think expecting her to have never lied is ridiculous.  If you tell me you have never lied, I will not believe you.  Everyone lies.  Politicians lie, people lie.

    I think that whether Hillary is healthy enough to hold the office of president is a more important issue than her political-life-time of deception.  She is having sever coughing fits on stage for the world to see, something maybe seriously wrong. I am sure she has the best medical care money can buy. 

    She suffered a serious concussion in Dec. of 2012 and was hospitalized for a life threatening blood-clot.  Bill had said it would take six months for her to recover, but it seems she may be suffering from "post-concussion syndrome" still.  She even sought concussion advice from the NFL.

    Hillary had to wear special glasses to help correct double vision, and she was wearing them again during Benghazi hearings to correct her vision.

    Her aid, Huma Abedin, said that Hillary is often confused.  It was revealed that it was important to go over phone calls with Hillary because of her confusion.   

    “The recent press reports about Hillary’s health point to the possibility she may yet be suffering the symptoms of post-concussion syndrome,” Dr. Daniel Kassicieh, D.O., a dual board certified osteopathic neurologist and a leading headache specialist who directs the Florida Headache and Movement Disorder Center in Sarasota, Florida..."

    “Electing someone to be president of the United States who has post-concussion syndrome is a real concern to me,”

    When Hillary was five minutes late getting back on the debt stage, she was recovering from a dizzy-spell sources say.

    Personally, I think Hillary is the puppet and Huma Abedin is her boss, not the other way around.  wink  Would we be electing Huma Abedin?

    i think her answer to the question reflects the difference in men and women.  A man would confidently say he never lies.  A woman would more humbly say I try not to, meaning sometimes a person may lie unintentionally, which is a more honest answer.
