Mrs Clinton has generated plenty of scandals, demonstrations of incompetence, demonstrations of illegality, dishonesty, and untrustworthiness since leaving the White House in 2001.
Regardless of all that, anyone living through the Clinton Administration must surely have wondered why none of the scandals from that period were deemed worthy of mention during this year's campaign. Many if not most of them centered around Mrs Clinton, so it wasn't because she was just the hapless wife. With that amount of baggage, she shouldn't have been close to electable, and not being stupid, she knew that.
With her background, how is it she felt confident enough to run for president in the first place? How could she so easily assume none of it would ever become anything more than a distraction? How could she have known Big Media wouldn't bring any of it up, and would bury it if it did come up? How did she know in advance that Big Media would be such a reliable advocate?
