    Right. She's not trustworthy, let alone competent.

    Jill Abramson, who spent decades as a journalist either investigating Clinton or overseeing investigations of her, and who certainly isn’t soft on the Clintons, concluded in The Guardian: “Hillary Clinton is fundamentally honest and trustworthy.”


    It’s true, of course, that Clinton is calculating — all politicians are, but she more than some. She has adjusted her positions on trade and the minimum wage to scrounge for votes, just as Sanders adjusted his position on guns.

    Sanders’s positions seem less focus-group tested than Clinton’s, and she can be infuriatingly evasive. Partly that’s because she’s more hawkish than some Democrats, and partly that’s because she realizes she’s likely to face general election voters in November and is preserving wiggle room so she can veer back to the center then.

    Does that make her scheming and unprincipled? Perhaps, but synonyms might be “pragmatic” and “electable.” That’s what presidential candidates do.

    Clinton’s private email server may have been penetrated by the Russians, though we don’t know that. But we do know that the official State Department nonclassified email system was indeed penetrated by the Russians, along with the White House unclassified email system.

    The bottom line: If she had followed the rules and used her official email address, Vladimir Putin might actually have had a leg up on reading her correspondence.

    So as we head toward the general election showdown, by all means denounce Hillary Clinton’s judgment and policy positions, but let’s focus on the real issues. She’s not a saint but a politician, and to me this notion that she’s fundamentally dishonest is a bogus narrative.

    It took 10 soldiers to put 1 soldier into combat during the Vietnam era. Ever notice how many "vietnam vets" aka draftees claim or imply they were in combat, but none ever admit "yeah, I was drafted but I served two years as a typist at Ft. Dix, smoked pot and then went home"?

    Of course this neglects to mention those serving in the Air Force guarding a missile silo in North Dakota or sailors painting a ship in SLEP at Norfolk. All who served their country honorably should be respected, but those who lie about their service should not be so honored.

    A person who lies, regardless of their background, is a coward and deserves no respect.
