During this and most presidential elections, the potential nominees are under scrutiny of the press and people. It's a physically and mentally grueling process to run for the presidency, but if you can't handle the stress now it doesn't bode well for the future. Hillary Clinton fabricated a story about being under sniper fire when she arrived in Bosnia. She claims to have been under sleep deprivation, which may have been true but doesn't give her an excuse to make up lies. Her credibility has been undermined by this incident. All presidential hopefuls, and any elected official for that matter, need to watch what they say -- or not say anything at all. No longer can you say one thing to a certain audience and then the opposite to another. It's impossible to appease everyone, but you shouldn't adopt a deceptive nature. As Mark Twain once said, "If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything."
