14. Are you serious?
The spouse of a candidate said something about another candidate, so *that* candidate's spouse said something in response. Seems perfectly natural to me.

You are being a little oversensitive - it seems to me that Bill is fulfilling his role as the spouse of a candidate in a perfectly appropriate way. Do you think Hillary should just have her spouse sit this one out because she's a woman?
