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?

    The other problem is that lets say that Area 51 doesn't have anything interesting. Are the kind of people who want this investigation really going to take "Yeah, it really is just a base where the air force tries out experimental aircraft." as an answer?

    It does have something interesting.

    It is top secret spy craft stuff. Thats it. Nothing more. The large runways give it away what they are doing there. They are running a 24/7 flyover missions from there. The reason they do not want people looking at the runways? Not because they have much to hide. All of the people who know about what goes on there knows. The 'top secret' is to keep people from logging flight times and aircraft type. Much like trainspotting.

    They also run the latest prototypes out of there as they do not want people looking at it, yet. You can tell a lot about things by observing them. They know they have built whole agencies upon the idea of observation and gathering intel.
