6. Why is it always the case that Bill Clinton's baggage belongs to his wife?
Will you even listen to yourself?

And no, I will not qualify my response by declaring this candidate or that one. That is not the issue. Does anyone blame the spouses of Edwards or Obama or even J. McCain for their husband's "baggage".

And let's recall who exactly created the baggage...sure Bil Clinton dallied. So what? He lied about an illicit affair that was frankly cheap and meaningless. So what?

What do any of these things have to do with the present? Nothing.

We are voting for politicians. None of them are pristine and none of them ever will be. But Senator Clinton is not the baggage carrier for her husband unless we make her so.
