Hillary Clinton should fight back

I am a registered Democrat who is worried about Hillary Clinton’s timid response to the “scandal” related to her private e-mail server. The investigation is largely being carried out by Fox News and the Republican presidential candidates.

On April 12, 2007, Karl Rove’s operation admitted that it had deleted at least 5 million emails from the server during the George W. Bush administration. In December 2009, technicians who had examined the server reported that the number of emails that had been deleted was far greater — 22 million.

Hillary needs to either have the courage to fight back aggressively, or simply drop out of the race and let a more battle ready candidate take over. This is a minor distraction that should have been handled much earlier.
