7. Thanks for the markers.

She said exactly what needed to be said and pointed fingers at all the guilty parties.

It broke my heart, though, earlier in the speech, where she said "I'm sorry" to all the various people she feels she disappointed.

All I could think about is that among all those powerful men who are accused of far worse, not a single one has every publicly said the words "I'm sorry"... about anything.

And Lord knows bravery is a scarce commodity in Congress.

5. I'm frustrated as hell by her leaving.

Almost as frustrated by that as by the chickenshit "she should have known better..." excuses I hear.

12. She slept with a subordinate in violation of ethics rules. What is excuse for that?

I have yet to hear a valid excuse that doesn't involve some sort of double standard. Either sleeping with your employees is wrong or it isn't. Pick one and be consistent.

I donated to her campaign, so I am also very frustrated and disappointed.

13. Something can be wrong without rising to the level of requiring resignation.

She could have been censured, for example.
