Hillary being the ruthless power and grit in the Clinton duo; Bill being the charm offensive. But American politics were taken by storm: Barack Obama, the 1/2 black candidate from the Alinsky halls of Chi Town, gained momentum aided by his active campaign wing, the Main Stream Media. Obama was the Social Media darling of the Millennials who knew next to nothing about our Constitution, and even less about the Candidate....
