It's deja vu all over again

It's being reported that Hillary Clinton may have to forgo her presidential aspirations once a report from Independent Counsel David Barrett is released. According to Tony Snow, host of FoxNEWS Radio's The Tony Snow Show, "By all accounts, the 400-page Barrett report is a bombshell, capable possibly of wiping out Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential prospects. At the very least, it would bring to public attention a scandal that would make the Valerie Plame affair vanish into comical insignificance." (Report Could Torpedo Hillary Clinton's Prez Plans) is reporting, "Two Washington pundits are warning that Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential plans may depend on whether congressional Democrats can continue to keep Independent Counsel David Barrett's final report on IRS abuses during the 1990s under wraps ... When he launched his probe in 1994, Mr. Barrett's initial focus was former Clinton Housing Secretary Henry Cisneros. But his investigation quickly zeroed in on allegations that the Clintons were using the IRS to persecute their political enemies - including scandal witnesses against them."

It will be interesting to see how this plays out and if the Clinton luck has run out.
