The bigger Clinton’s margin of victory, the harder it becomes for the GOP to obstruct the proper course of government.
OK, I’m all in favor of an opposition party. But “opposition” is different from “obstruction,” and the United States of America needs to have a functioning government again. After eight years of having Republicans obstructing everything Obama tried to do and even failing meet their most basic responsibilities (passing a federal budget), the country cannot afford another four or eight more years of the same.
Here’s an important point to consider – this may be the highest level of obstruction the US has seen since the lead up to the Civil War. Now I’m not saying that we’ll get there, but the bigger the margin Clinton is elected by, the less likely THAT becomes, too.
And really, Congress has been investigating Hillary Clinton regarding Benghazi for four years. They’ve been digging into her private email server for something like two years and the FBI got involved. And the Clintons have been investigated so often and thoroughly by their political enemies that if charges could have been brought for anything they did, charges would have been. Eventually doing the same thing and expecting different results turns from “due diligence” to “insanity.”
Obstructing Obama had a little to do with policy and a lot to do with racism. Obstructing Clinton will have even less to do with policy and more to do with sexism, misogyny, and irrational Clinton hatred.
I’d love to say that rationality will win out in the end, but given the Republican Party nominated Trump for president and he’ll get probably 40% of the vote even though he’s a fascist who has admitted he’s sexually harassed and abused women, I’m not confident of that any more.
