Knowing Which Way The Wind Blows

Ah, the downward spiral:

On the Clinton conference call this morning, Howard Wolfson–under rather aggressive questioning from Mother Jones’ David Corn–said he didn’t know how Hillary felt about her husbands pardons of two former Weathermen. But he drew a distinction by pointing out that no Weathermen ever held fundraisers for Hillary Clinton.

Wolfson’s got a distinction drawn, alright, but doesn’t it cut the other way — I’d much rather vote for a politician who received favors from a bad person than a politician who’s given favors to a bad person. This whole subject is, however, essentially BS when flying in either direction.
