    But she does carry a lot of baggage and has yet to share with everyone how she proposes to change things and for anything to change you have to make the changes right at the top of everything, otherwise it will not work and now she’s just a wannabe puppet trying to get sat at the table. And then, she’s only going to do what she is told … for she’s not leadership material, at all. The country needs someone with New with New Ideas otherwise it will be just more of the same old pain.

    I’m sorry, but your argument seems a bit confused. You link to a long article claiming she gave a large fraction of the orders during her husband’s presidency, then claim she only does what’s told.
