When he ran for the Democratic nomination in 1988 he stood down after it emerged that he had plagiarised part of a speech made by Neil Kinnock earlier that year. By today's standards that wouldn't even cost him a fraction of 1% of support among the public.
Joe Biden - Wikipedia
It is an illustration of how low the voters of the USA have sunk that 28 years later they were prepared to elect a president who was caught on tape boasting about how he could grab women by the pussy.......................................
Nah, don't agree. Unlike you, American voters have their priorities right when it comes to voting for their presidents. Biden is a cr eepy bozo and that Kinnock affair exposed what a clown he happens to be. No way would that would happen with Trump

Would Hilary ever consider giving up politics for the sake of the Democratic party ?

A horny old man who used to breeze into the dressing rooms of young women in the Miss USA Pageant without apology, isn't creepy?

“The time that he walked through the dressing rooms was really shocking. We were all naked.”

The former Miss New Hampshire [and others] allege Trump walked in to the dressing room unannounced while contestants were naked.
And his (ahem) love for his daughter, that is just super creepy.

Love will triumph over hate : Pittsburgh mayor | Reuters.com

"Love will triumph over Hate".

Hello. Didn't Hillary Clinton used to say that a lot in 2016? It is the kind of thing you would wish people listened to before they voted.

As a hanging judge used to say "Mickle good it did her".

But if all Pennsylvania had voted for her, maybe those Pittsburgh Jews would still be alive.

(Alleghany Country, where Pittsburgh is located, voted for Clinton, 57% to 40%)

'Democrats got millions more votes – so how did Republicans win the Senate?
Experts warn of ‘rise of minority rule’ after Democrats’ vote tally beat Republicans’ by more than 12m'

The elections were obviously rigged.

The US democracy is the most powerful in the world.

We depended on them to save the world from totalitarianism of both the right and the left.

Yet when they elect presidents who got 3 million less votes than the runner up you would be worried about the fairness of the system.

When they have a political group bragging about winning the mid terms when they got 12 million less votes than the opposition it looks outrageous.

In past elections they used non verifiable e-voting in certain states.

This was interfered with so that the actual vote counted in those states was totally out of line with exit poll.

In the rest of the states there was only .05% of a difference with the exit poll.

Raises questions about the quality of the electoral system and the fairness of the results of US elections.

With all the abuse being thrown at Hillary Clinton it seems the Trump arse lickers are afraid Clinton will run in 2020.

Although I thought her defeat was a world wide historical calamity for democracy and for women's place in representative democracy I never thought of her running again myself.

But she is younger than that misogynist moron Trump and the Democrats have nobody at the moment to match the following life story.

Hillary Clinton
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Personal details
Born
Hillary Diane Rodham
October 26, 1947 (age 71)
Chicago, Illinois, U.S.


This article is part of a series
about
Hillary Clinton



Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton (born October 26, 1947) is an American politician and diplomat who served as the First Lady of the United States from 1993 to 2001, U.S. Senator from New York from 2001 to 2009, 67th United States Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013, and as the Democratic Party's nominee for President of the United States in the 2016 election.

Born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in the Chicago suburb of Park Ridge, Clinton graduated from Wellesley College in 1969 and earned a Juris Doctor from Yale Law School in 1973. After serving as a congressional legal counsel, she moved to Arkansas and married Bill Clinton in 1975. In 1977, she co-founded Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families. She was appointed the first female chair of the Legal Services Corporation in 1978 and became the first female partner at Rose Law Firm the following year.

As First Lady of Arkansas, she led a task force whose recommendations helped reform Arkansas's public schools.
As First Lady of the United States, Clinton was an advocate for gender equality and healthcare reform. Her marital relationship came under public scrutiny during the Lewinsky scandal, which led her to issue a statement that reaffirmed her commitment to the marriage. In 2000, Clinton was elected as the first female Senator from New York. She was reelected to the Senate in 2006.

Running for president in 2008, she won far more delegates than any previous female candidate but lost the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama.[2] During her tenure as U.S. Secretary of State in the Obama Administration from 2009 to 2013, Clinton responded to the Arab Spring by advocating military intervention in Libya. She helped to organize a diplomatic isolation and international sanctions regime against Iran in an effort to force curtailment of that country's nuclear program; this would eventually lead to the multinational Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action agreement in 2015. Upon leaving her Cabinet position after Obama's first term, she wrote her fifth book and undertook speaking engagements.

Clinton made a second presidential run in 2016. She received the most votes and primary delegates in the 2016 Democratic primaries and formally accepted her party's nomination for President of the United States on July 28, 2016 with vice presidential running mate Senator Tim Kaine. She became the first female candidate to be nominated for president by a major U.S. political party. She lost the presidential election to Republican opponent Donald Trump in the Electoral College, despite winning a plurality of the popular vote.[3] She received more than 65 million votes, the 3rd-highest count in a U.S. presidential election, behind Obama's victories in 2008 and 2012.

Following her loss, she wrote her third memoir, What Happened, and launched Onward Together, a political action organization dedicated to fundraising for progressive political groups.[4]

If Trump prays for anything I imagine it's that Clinton will be his opponent again next time.
That is the message the Trump arse lickers will put out.

They hope it can be repeated and repeated so that it does not happen.

Opinion
US midterms 2018
Half of white women continue to vote Republican. What's wrong with them?
Moira Donegan

Some 53% of white women voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election – the real story of white women voters is both more grim and more complex than the figure reveals

How long have they been hanging around Washington now ?

Great media heading during US the presidential election campaign.

One of the Trump campaign's many 'alternative facts'.

'Trump campaign official: Hillary will be dead within a year and be replaced by VP Tim Kaine'.

Rigged? You obviously know very little about the US political system and how the senate elections work.
