Absurd to have to discuss whether Hillary Clinton’s past is fair game if she runs in 2016.
The answer is “of course it is.”
And of course the press and the left knows this full well. The game being played is the usual one of setting up double standards for the different sides in terms of what’s allowed and what’s criticized. Part of this game is the simultaneous lauding of a Democratic member of a favored victim group (in this case, women) as strong and yet at the same time in need of special protection because of his/her victim status.
Obama has been the template. The only difference is the victim group in question; for Obama it’s African-Americans. Any discussion of his past (or any criticism of him at all, really) is racist, just as any discussion of Hillary will be sexist.
Count on it.
And count on the rules being reversed for Republican women and Republican African-Americans.
