26. For those wanting to jump on Hillary...
I put the question out to people who have worked on other campaigns. We know the lengths Republicans go, but curious as to how much this is ignored when it's not Hillary. Here's your answer:

Honestly, this cuts to Obama's and Edward's credibility to make a lot of this, if they know it's this commonplace. They better hope they don't do this. (Romney, too).
