Can Hillary Do No Wrong?

Hillary Clinton must believe that she is unbeatable!

From the Seattle examiner.

Sandy Berger, who stole highly classified terrorism documents from the National Archives, destroyed them and lied to investigators, is now an adviser to presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton.

John Kerry was bright enough to realize that Mr. Berger was bad news and fired him from his campaign. Hillary must believe that everyone is taking a heavy dose of TRYPHORGETTIN from DNC Pharmaceuticals. Sandy Berger has had his security clearance suspended until September of 2008. Does it seem reasonable that a criminal that has had his security clearance revoked is advising the leading Democratic candidate for President of the United States? Even Clinton's admirers have questioned this move.

This is raising eyebrows even among Clinton’s admirers. “It shows poor judgment and a lack of regard for Berger’s serious misdeeds,” said law professor Jonathan Adler of Case Western Reserve University, who nonetheless called Clinton “by far the most impressive candidate in the Democratic field.”
Even though Jonathan Adler thinks that this decision "shows poor judgement" he still believes that she is "by far the most impressive candidate in the Democratic field." Is that saying something positive about Hillary Clinton or just a reflection on the sad state of the "Democratic Field?"

I'd be curious to know if anyone else thinks that this will have an affect on her ability to become the next President.

When I read that this last night, I was amazed. All I could think of was that this rehabilitation was promised to Sandy Burgler in exchange for sneaking those documents out of the National Archives. They must have contained something really embarrassing.
BTW, I wonder how it would be received by the MSM if a Republican candidate hired Scooter Libby?
