Has The Silence Begun To Crack?

Hillary Clinton's fundraising scandals have kept the blogosphere amused and certain pundits occupied, but the story has not moved much beyond the Los Angeles Times and the New York Post in the mainstream American media. However, the Washington Post editorial board has sent a small signal that her latest fundraising peccadilloes warrant more attention.

At Heading Right, I note that the editorial amounts to weak tea as scoldings go. However, its appearance alone demonstrates that these scandals may have developed some legs. Democrats concerned about her already-established negatives may have to consider the effect of having Hillary as a banner-carrier in a year when they have to defend their Congress from the party base and convince independents to join their coalition.
