US presidential elections: Hillary Clinton is expected to win the US polls in the morning, but she has the fight of her political life at hand – for, a Donald Trump victory is also on the cards if things don not go according to what pollsters are saying. You can never write off Donald. He has proven that in business and he has done the same in politics. He has come from nowhere to virtually put himself on the cusp of his greater ever achievement – becoming the President of the United States of America. But this story is not about Donald, it is about Hillary. Still, to put things in perspective, it has to be mentioned that while Donald Trump has insulted every woman in America, did copious amounts of women shaming, slut shaming, body shaming and allegedly sexually assaulted dozens, he still remains in the picture to turn president. The worst that Hillary has against her, is the use of a private e-mail server during her govt stint that she denied initially but FBI said it was a threat to national security. The FBI case has since then fallen flat. However, Hillary has a tainted past too. She has been accused of bullying a woman who accused her husband Bill Clinton of molestation. So, without much ado, here is all you want to know about Clinton, that you probably wished you had never had the opportunity to find out.
