The big announcement of the day was that President Obama endorsed Hillary Clinton in the presidential race. He's got his name on it now. Nbcnews.com quoting Obama:
... I don't think there's ever been someone so qualified to hold this office...
(Aside: More qualified than Obama himself?)
But how would it look now if she got indicted?
That's easy. She won't get indicted. Either FBI Director James Comey will decline to request an indictment or Attorney General Loretta Lynch will decline to prosecute.
However, as a fail safe, Obama could always pardon her. To those of us who don't support her that sounds like a dreadful outcome, but it's not likely to sway her supporters.
But would it push independents toward Trump? It might. But Trump is always tripping over his own tongue, and he's likely to have offended so many people by November that only his true supporters remain in his camp. Maybe the independents stay home.
What a year this has been. For all the complaining the pundits do, this has been the most entertaining election most of us in the U.S. has ever seen.
