Let's check in on Hillionaire

What's the latest with the second most prominent Alinskyite in the Freedom-hater party?

Well, she wants to double the capital-gains tax rate for top earners.

She saw the ass-whuppin' O'Malley came in for at Netroots and decided to get in front of the race issue,  making sure to use the approved "Black Lives Matter" phrase at recent campaign appearances.

And she reaffirms her support for Planned Parenthood at the same moment when corporate donors are fleeing as fast as they can.

And she has two inspectors general breathing down her neck over the private-email-account matter

Two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with the personal email account Hillary Rodham Clinton used as secretary of state, senior government officials said Thursday.
The request follows an assessment in a June 29 memo by the inspectors general for the State Department and the intelligence agencies that Mrs. Clinton’s private account contained “hundreds of potentially classified emails.” The memo was written to Patrick F. Kennedy, the under secretary of state for management.
It is not clear if any of the information in the emails was marked as classified by the State Department when Mrs. Clinton sent or received them.
But since her use of a private email account for official State Department business was revealed in March, she has repeatedly said that she had no classified information on the account.
Oh, and she's having poll number troubles:

If this news doesn’t have Joe Biden, Al Gore, or Elizabeth Warren seriously considering entering the presidential race — and serious Democrats urging them to do so — then nothing will. According to a Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll, Hillary Clinton trails Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and Scott Walker in Colorado, Iowa and Virginia.
Two of the three Republicans Clinton trails are neither well known nor in possession of a well known name. Thus, the poll results should be viewed mostly as a referendum on Hillary. 
This assessment is confirmed by Clinton’s favorability ratings. In Virginia, they are 41-50. In Colorado, they are 35-56. In Iowa, where Clinton has been a fairly constant presence, they are 33-56 — a tribute to her skill as campaigner. 
Hey, Hillionaire, try tripling down on the class warfare and identity politics. That ought to turn things around.
