41. The old DU was informed and would have put up a lot of
good information to refute this "crap". Instead I'm getting a lot of snark about one sentence, which I still stand by. I am not posting this to bash Hillary. I want all the truth about her and the other candidates out in the open. Primary season is the time to do it.

Goring sacred cows is quite allowed in primary season.
