For John, BLUF: Not sure it is a lock. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Mrs Clinton has dismissed the question of "if she is indicted". That question was asked Thursday last by Univision host Jorge Ramos, during the debate. She said, oh, for goodness sake. That is not going to happen. I think I am with Mr Ramos on this one. Indictment, while not a foregone conclusion, is possible. Contingency plans are needed, I would think.
My wife suggests that the Republicans can't really be sure who they will be running against. She notes that the Democrats can pull the rug out from under the election by scapegoating Hillary, if they want. All is in the hands of President Obama and his DOJ. If the Dems decide that they don't like how things are developing they can indict Hillary and put up someone else, like Vice President Biden or Senator E Warren.
Sort of like an escape capsule.
Hat tip to the wife.
