New York Times' Dowd on the Clinton Contamination

New York Times' columnist Maureen Dowd, a liberal Democrat, excoriates Bill and Hillary Clinton in her latest column.
It says a lot about our relationship with Hillary Clinton that she seems well on her way to becoming Madam President because she’s not getting indicted.

If she were still at the State Department, she could be getting fired for being, as the F.B.I. director told Congress, "extremely careless" with top-secret information. Instead, she's on a glide path to a big promotion.

And that's the corkscrew way things go with the Clintons, who are staying true to their reputation as the Tom and Daisy Buchanan of American politics. Their vast carelessness drags down everyone around them, but they persevere, and even thrive.

In a mere 11 days, arrogant, selfish actions by the Clintons contaminated three of the purest brands in Washington — Barack Obama, James Comey and Loretta Lynch — and jeopardized the futures of Hillary’s most loyal aides.
And like the Buchanans, the villains in The Great Gatsby, the Clintons simply "let other people clean up the mess they had made."
