Hillary decimates Tea Party hawks at Benghazi hearing

Nobody plays the victim like Hillary Clinton. She can wield that label like a wrecking ball.If her husband humiliates her with a girlfriend in the Oval Office, Mrs Clinton turns around and uses the sympathy engendered to launch a political career. If her Republican opponent gets in her space in an overbearing way during a debate, she turns around and uses the sympathy to win a Senate seat. If conservatives hold a Salem witch trial under the guise of a House select committee hearing, she turns around and uses the sympathy to slip into the high-occupancy vehicle lane of a superhighway to the presidency.
