"Vetting"

It’s worth noting that Hendrick Hertzberg is absolutely right to say that it’s just not true that Hillary Clinton has already been vetted, she “has not, in fact, survived the worst that the Republican attack machine (and its pilotless drones online and on talk radio) can dish out.” There’s a whole set of potential vulnerabilities dealing with pardons and finances from about 2000 to 2006 or 7 that haven’t been explored in detail during the course of this or any other campaign.

I don’t really want to rehash those incidents because I think it’s sleazy and their existence isn’t the reason I think Clinton would be the worse nominee. But if you’re out there thinking Obama’s got this Ayers and Wrght stuff in the closet and Hillary has no new vulnerabilities for the GOP to explore you’re fooling yourself.
