    Is Hillary Clinton The Most Incompetent Politician Ever?

    Even her most ardent fans cannot name any real accomplishments, whereas she has an endless list of failures from Watergate to Whitewater, Emails to Benghazi. She changes positions on everything and in my opinion she is completely incapable of telling the truth about anything.  She seems incapable of differentiating between the truth or falsehoods.

    I think it runs a little more complicated. A politician is not really rated on their accomplishments, within the establishment. They really are gauged on the power they have within the existing power structure. The billion dollars or so needed to run a strictly advertising campaign was earmarked for her, eight years ago when she ceded to Obama. That which is the Democratic party has elevated her to head of the party behind Obama. That machine can normally beat the Republican machine. Actual accomplishments and popular appeal is just darn near irrelevant. The Clintons are owed the proverbial anointing. As we can see, what choice is there for a liberal/progressive voter.

    For lacking accomplishments she rivals Jimmy Carter, and Barack Obama. But where she hits the lower level is in her nefarious dealings. Lying is her resting state, and from their she goes criminal. The Clinton Foundation, and the 150 million dollars that the Clintons have amassed from speaking engagements, along with the very expensive perks of travel to and from their speaking engagements, as well as 5 star hotel accommodations not only for herself but her staff.

    She has not been competent in doing the job of Senator and Sec of State, but she is totally competent in side stepping the legal ramifications of her questionable acts.

    She spent her last term as senator campaigning for the presidency, so how could she accomplish anything in the senate. Her record as Sec of State is void of any accomplishments.

    People most times mistake attempts or mere actions as accomplishments. But accomplishments are something useful that works. Not laws that don't solve problems, or meetings that don't change for the benefit of those in issue. It is something that has proved itself to be of value, not to Hillary but the country and the people.

    No one incompetent would have risen to her level and avoided penalties for the crimes Comey listed and admitted others have violated.
    She may be the most corrupt politician of all US history, but she is not incompetent.

    Trump's advantage is he never worked in politics so he can't be faulted for any political errors or scams. He runs his own business, heads it and pays everybody, and they do what he says because he pays. It's very different from politics where he has no experience of being answerable to the people for decisions he makes. You don't let the janitor fix the air conditioner. why? Because he has no experience. Same thing.
