The Rules According to Clinton:

"Hillary Clinton hasn't even begun her expected presidential candidacy, but already Americans are being reminded of the political entertainment they can expect. To wit, the normal rules of government ethics and transparency apply to everyone except Bill and Hillary. ...
 The real story here is that none of this is a surprise. This is how the Clintons roll. They're a political version of the old Peanuts cartoon character who was always surrounded by a cloud of dirt. Ethical shortcuts and controversies are standard operating procedure. A brief 1990s roll call: The Riadys, Johnny Chung, Travelgate, the vanishing Rose billing records, a killing in cattle futures, the Marc Rich pardon.
 The Clintons and Democrats want Americans to forget all of that. But as the email and foundation discoveries show, the Clintons haven't changed. They still think they can do what they please and get away with it." — The Editors, The Wall Street Journal
