61. i agree with you.
She should have dumped his ass for being a cheater. And...I don't idolize Bill either...he's infinitely better than any Republican president in recent history...but Clinton also had his moments where he catered to the white racist mentality in this country to gain points with the white middle-class that fluctuates between parties. Basically, he's like his wife...political opportunists...the Elite of the Democratic Party. That doesn't mean I don't respect CERTAIN aspects of their governance and actions. But...all I'm asking is to have a balanced appraisal of the Clintons. They are not the messiah, people.

And to answer your question...she didn't leave him to keep her social status as the First Lady of an ex-President...and the political, economic, and social benefits that that relation gives.

She's a political opportunist...a liberal, Democratic socialite of the elite...I really don't understand why people have this messianic vision of Hillary as the messiah of the Left in America.

She's a rich, white woman, with power, status, and control of her affairs...and she uses them as they fit the situation...primarily for her benefit and her legacy. Now...if you ask me, is she better than some Republican socialite...yes, without a doubt. But that doesn't make Hillary Clinton the next great hurrah.

So...let's get a grip, Democrats. Let's work together to push Dean's faction of the Democratic Party and further the power of the grassroots liberals in the country...not sit on our computers defending Democratic elite socialites that spend their hours thinking how they can garner contributions from the same dirty corporations that fund the Republican party, while drinking Merlot in their Southern, Arkansas mansions.
