Okay, that is an interesting take, and sort of clarifies the situation.  
Whatever misdeeds by Hillary must be viewed the lens of the misdeeds by her 
opponent, and discounted accordingly.  Of course "you" determine of severity of 
each offense and where they fit on the sliding scale. 

 I'm more of "just the fact" please, type person.  

 What you are saying of course is that Trump is such a poor candidate that any 
misdeeds by Hillary are basically immaterial.  This is fine, just don't try to 
tell me that she did not do something that she did. Or, for that matter, don't 
try to tell me that sex between Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky was simply sex 
between two consenting adults with no other dynamics at play.

 'challenging Hillary' is not relevant at all, until the many road flares that 
Trump has raised are dealt with. Once she gets elected, that will be the time 
for additional scrutiny. Until then, it is a false equivalency, like worrying 
about a mosquito bite, when a rabid dog is on the loose.

 Here's what I would add. 

 Politics is a dirty business.  Sometimes you, (a candidate) has to do things 
in the name of political expediency that they regret.  Hillary Clinton needed 
her husband to further her political ambitions.  There is, in my opinion, 
nothing wrong with that.

 Yes, it is a stain or a blemish on her that she attempted to discredit Bill's 
accusers.  But it was done and you have to acknowledge, or dance around it as 
best you can and move on,  

 I for one am ready to move on, except when someone claims that it did not 
happen, or to sugar coat it. 

 Unless something drastic happens she will win the election and has an 
opportunity to do some good.  That is what I am focussed on.

 P.S. For some reason, you and others can't seem to realize that challenging 
Hillary is not the same as supporting Trump.  It just means that one is not 
afraid to look at issues in an unbiased manner.

 I am more than willing to address the candidates' issues, in a balanced way. 

On the one hand is an oaf who, for starters, refuses to release his tax 
returns. Refuses to, after every major candidate in the last 40 years has done 
it. Many just shrug and say, 'oh that's Trump, just being Trump'. Same with him 
suggesting Hillary could be shot, same with his dangerous flip flops on major 
policy issues, and utter lack of interest or experience in public service, 'oh 
he will surround himself with good people'. Same with his admissions of sexual 
assault, 'oh, its just locker room banter'. 

On the other hand, Clinton's entire *life* is somehow seen as a legal 
deposition, with every 'i' dotted and 't' crossed, held up to the strictest 
legal and moral scrutiny. 

What a bunch of bullshit, Steve. Not much more to add.

 Ollie, why is it that so many here lack the integrity to address uncomfortable 
issues, such as Hillary pillorying of BIll Clinton's accusers. 

 My question is clearly directed at this and her response of dealing with it 
when it got in the way of political expediency.  I am not sure how you can work 
to discredit the claims of these women at the same time declaring yourself to 
be a champion of women's rights.

 Can you?

 Now to repeat what Bharitu said, we are not electing a saint, so I get what 
she did.  Just acknowledge it, if you can, and then move on.

 Hillary Clinton is not a rapist - Donald is. Hillary Clinton does not go

I am not sure why we are talking about Hillary's husband - he isn't running. 
Let's stay focused and compare candidate to candidate. Frankly I am amazed that 
any man or woman could ever excuse or qualify Trump's words, once again. Rather 
than feel completely repelled and revolted by this Orange Abomination, I see 
too many deciding that the ugliness Trump exposes is A-OK, because 'gee I feel 
a lot of the same things inside...'. Talk about the banality of evil...

 Lame?  So mention Monica Lewinsky but leave out the woman Bill Clinton 
actually raped, not to mention the accusations of groping by numerous others, 
and the veracity of these claims challenged by Hillary. And this is the 
candidate who claims to be a champion of women's rights?  This is political 
expediency and nothing more. Have the intestinal fortitude to call it for what 
it is. 

 Your comments, as is often the case are the ploys of a partisan, who claims to 
be purveyor of truth but in actuality is pretty much just a shrill.

 "Locker room banter," of course, isn't the point. That's just an exceptionally 
lame--and supremely hypocritical--attempt to defend the indefensible. 

 This, as I've already said, is about Trump boasting of his right as a 
celebrity to commit *criminal sexual assault* any time he wants and get away 
with it.

 Bill Clinton's affair with Monica was consensual. She didn't sue him for 
sexual harassment (let alone sexual assault) because she wouldn't have had a 
chance of winning.

 In most states in this country, kissing someone or grabbing their genitals for 
sexual gratification without their consent is a crime subject to jail time.

 And nobody's cutting Clinton any slack for his philandering. But Clinton's 
sins have nothing whatsoever to do with this. Trump's is a whole other order of 
misbehavior toward women.

 Since you brought up the subject of men's locker room banter, you and some 
Democrats cut Bill Clinton and lot of slack when he didn't get sued by Monica 
for sexual harassment in the work place. He should have been fired and put in 
jail for being a sexual predator and lying to the American people and Congress.

 Any normal person would acknowledge the crimes against women Bill has 
committed and be honest about what happened, but for some reason you just can't 
seem to be normal and honest. Politics as usual, I guess. Go figure.

 Your post has got to be one of the most hypocritical messages on this forum 
that I've ever read. Bill Clinton made the office of the U.S. Presidency the 
laughing stock of the entire planet!

 Now, boys, as you are very well aware, nobody is talking about saints or 
church ladies. 

 We're talking about the difference between normal if imperfect human beings, 
and an aggressive sexual predator who brags that his celebrity gives him the 
right to commit criminal sexual assault whenever he feels like it.

 Most normal human beings would be embarrassed to cut such a person any slack, 
let alone attempt to defend him.
