Response to DCBob (Reply #49)

64. I think you are likely correct that people have already absorbed the issue

I disagree that they have dismissed it as nothing happened.

They likely have rejected it as something that would change their vote. In that way, she is very lucky that she does not have an opponent who could be said to have - for the most part - a similar platform - as was true for Obama and Edwards.

In the general election, that will be more stark. I assume that there will be many facing a less drastic version of what we in NJ thought we had to face in 2002. I know that I and many others had realized that we would vote for the ethically impaired Toricelli over his right wing Republican opponent (Forrest?). I think that - if the party had not pushed him to resign allowing them to replace him with the wonderful Lautenberg - Toricelli would have been reelected because we would be voting for someone to cast votes in line with the Democrats and because it was thought that we could determine control of the Senate.

Now, I don't think Clinton is as ethically problematic as Torricelli, but I could list many many politicians I think are cleaner - starting with Sanders and Obama.
