Although many U.S. presidential candidates are discussing "aliens," the Daily Mail has a story about a candidate talking about aliens from potentially much farther away. According to the Daily Mail, Hillary Clinton has made a campaign promise to 'get to the bottom' of Area 51 if she should be elected President of the United States of America. Specifically, Clinton said that she would reveal the UFO truth:

"one way or another. Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51."

"I think we may have been [visited already]. We don't know for sure."

The Daily Mail story is based on the report of an interview with the candidate published in the Conway Daily Sun newspaper of Conway, New Hampshire.

Do the contributors here think that extraterrestrials are a promising and important campaign topic? Or is there skepticism?

    Wow, big brave AC comes in with plenty of profanity to shower hate on anyone who would dare make light mockery of a Democrat. 50 years ago, they would have just sent the union thugs over to rough you up.

    make light mockery

    To be honest, while the subject does seem a little silly, I would actually love for all of the UFO information to be released.

      Yeah. Hillary gets dinged all the time for not being genuine. It isn't a stretch to think she's as curious as anyone else about UFOs. Seems like a genuine, if minor, curiosity on her part.

      "Rednecks like shiny things. Glitter Finish on our bass boats, beer cans, UFO's we like shiny things. When was the last time you saw a big rich person's boat with a glitter finish? In fact if you think of it most of the UFO sightings take place on a Bass Boat by a guy with a beer in one hand." - Jeff Foxworthy Seriously Funny, but he may have a point.
