Hillary Clinton’s forever problem

Hillary Clinton is probably going to win — and win big — on Election Night. But then she’ll have to wake up on Nov. 9 and come to terms with the fact that an unfriendly Congress is going to spend the next four years tormenting her over her email scandal and the tangled web of relationships at the Clinton Foundation.
