Why do the Clintons inspire such loyalty?
As a former semi-supporter, I have asked myself that question, but honestly have never been able to come up with an answer. Instead I can’t even come up with an example of two people less worthy of support, loyalty and/or admiration.
Yesterday Dick Morris writes SANDY ROLLS OVER FOR BILL & HILL
Berger was on a fast track to be the next Democratic Secretary of State. He risked that in stealing those documents. Now he has destroyed his future career by pleading to a criminal misdemeanor — admitting what he did while still concealing why he did it.
The Clintons’ reaction when Berger was caught? The former president’s comments sound just too scripted to believe: He laughed and said that it was typical of Sandy to be disorganized and forget how he handled documents. Quite a comment about the man he appointed to superintend the nation’s secrets.
Then Hillary announced, without being asked, that Sandy had just helped brief her for a February speech at the annual Munich Conference on Security Policy — sending the adviser a signal that he was still part of the family, even though the grand jury was investigating him.
Picture the fevered atmosphere in the months after 9/11. Any indication by the commission investigating the attack that the Clinton administration hadn’t taken terrorism seriously would badly damage the former president’s reputation and the former first lady’s chances. Any loyal adviser would have worked to mitigate the possible damage. The measure of how serious the damage may have been is how far Berger risked falling to prevent it — and how far he did fall rather than reveal why.
I simply can’t figure out just what it is about the Clintons.
