1886: President Cleveland married Frances Folsom

leave a comment »


President Cleveland married Frances Folsom on this day in 1886.    

President Cleveland was a bachelor when he was elected in 1884.    Frances was 27 years younger than Mr Cleveland.   

She was a very popular First Lady because of her youth and charm.

The Clevelands had 5 children, including Baby Ruth,  the first baby born to a president in the White House.

Mr Cleveland was the Democrat nominee in 1884, 1888 and 1892.     He lost in 1888 and won the other two times.

Schoen is right that it won’t be Mrs. Clinton

(My new American Thinker post)

We don’t know what the final word will be on Mrs. Clinton’s email scandal.  But I agree with Doug Schoen that this story has no happy ending for her:

Mrs. Clinton also faces growing legal problems. The State Department inspector general’s recent report on Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state made it abundantly clear that she broke rules and has been far from forthright in her public statements. The damning findings buttressed concerns within the party that Mrs. Clinton and her aides may not get through the government’s investigation without a finding of culpability somewhere.
With Mrs. Clinton reportedly soon to be interviewed by the FBI, suggesting that the investigation is winding up, a definitive ruling by the attorney general could be issued before the July 25 Democratic convention in Philadelphia. Given the inspector general’s report, a clean bill of health from the Justice Department is unlikely.

Very unlikely indeed!  Mrs. Clinton broke the rules and that’s about all you can say about this episode.    

Incredibly, a new Rasmussen poll indicates that 50% say that Mrs. Clinton should run if indicted.     

Are you kidding me Clintonistas?  How unserious can Democrats be?  Isn’t there more to a president than promising free health care and tuition?

Also, this is not the Clinton US Senate trial of 1999, or one that required 67 votes to convict.    

Hillary Clinton’s case is about a disregard for national security.   

It is clear for any American who has a private and business email:  most of us have signed an employment manual that business is business and personal is personal.  

Yes, it may not be Hillary Clinton in November!  The Clintons have finally been caught!
