Sandy Berger Advising Clinton Campaign
Rob Port, responding to news that Sandy Berger is part of Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy advisory triumvariate, wonders if this “isn’t the first campaign ever to feature the services of a national security adviser who, by order of a criminal court ruling, has no access to national security documents.”
One would think.
Then again, maybe we’ve reached the point where such things don’t matter. Clinton’s husband left office with remarkably high public approval despite impeachment and conduct which led to him being stripped of his license to practice law. Meanwhile, the current administration continues to run war policy despite a string of scandals and near-record low approval ratings. Perhaps fealty to the law is no longer high on the list of public expectations for executive office.
