(D-Calif.).  (AP) 
( – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told at her press briefing on Thursday that requiring young women to register for the draft is “an issue that we should discuss."
At the U.S. Capitol on Thursday, asked Pelosi, “The commandant of the Marine Corps and chief of staff of the Army testified in the Senate Armed Services Committee last week that young women should be required to register for the draft. Do you support requiring all young women to register for the draft?

Quote:Jeff Miller
They think it's a good idea until women are actually drafted. Keep in mind Family members of Congress are exempt from a draft. Not only that, its a bad idea. Men, OK, but not the women. Some women don't want to go. Single moms, new moms, military spouses, etc. It's not a good idea and its idiotic its being discussed. Sounds like women better vote Republican. There's your war on women ladies!

Losing New Hampshire by 22 points to an avowed socialist was bad enough for Hillary Clinton. But then came the news — first reported by WaPo — that the State Department had opened a inquiry regarding the activities of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation during her time time as secretary of state. And bad went to way, way worse.

By my count, this latest State Department inquiry makes for three active investigations by the federal government that touch directly or indirectly on the 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner.

1. The newly revealed State inquiry into the Clinton Foundation and top Clinton aide Huma Abedin

2. The ongoing State inquiry into Clinton's private email server

3. The FBI investigation into Clinton's email server

And that list doesn't include the myriad looks Congress is taking into Clinton's time at State.

It's worth noting right at the top here that Clinton herself is not the target of any of these inquiries or investigations. Which from a legal perspective is very important, but which, from a political perspective, is far less convincing.

Here's why the latest revelation regarding Clinton's time at State is so problematic:

* It furthers the "where there's smoke, there's fire" argument. This hurts Clinton both coming and going. For Republicans, it hands them yet another way to suggest that something untoward is going on with Clinton. For Democrats, it increases their anxiety about the possibility of nominating someone who could fall under an ethical cloud just as the party is trying to elect them to the White House.

* It makes it increasingly difficult for Clinton, as she has done since the revelation that she had a private email server broke a year ago, to cast the questions raised about her time at State as simply a partisan fishing expedition. "There is a concerted effort to try to make partisan advantage by really trying to throw so much at me that even if little splotches of it stick, it will cloud peoples's judgment of me," Clinton told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow this week. "That is a burden I carry."
