If Hillary wins the election, she will do to the Democrats what Nixon did to the Republicans in 1974

The Watergate Class Of 1974: How They Arrived In Congress, How They Left

Of course, the Watergate scandal brought about the first resignation of a president in history. It led to changes in campaign finance laws and the congressional seniority system. We can talk about whether any of that ultimately made a difference. But it also brought in 91 new members of the House in the November elections, an overwhelming number being Democrats. That Congress wreaked havoc on many of President Ford's domestic priorities.

In a way, it would be better for the Republican Party if Hillary wins. Her scandals, and probable impeachment would lead to enormous victories for Republicans in Congress in 2018. We may even see a sea change in Republican Party fortunes, making it the majority party for the first time since the Presidency of Herbert Hoover.

Hillary was really pissed when Obama attacked her on critical issues in the primaries. Maybe deep down, she has grown to hate the Democratic party since then and resents what she has accomplished. If that were the case, Hillary might want just that to be elected and then obviously impeached for the e-mail scandal. She may have deliberately created private e-mails for just this purpose. It would not have been difficult for her to plan.

That way, she can get the thrill of becoming president and hand pick the next president herself. She knew she was going to take a dive over one reason or another with Travel Gate and other problems and wanted to get as much out of it as possible. This is only a theory but a shame if it had any substance to it.
