The Lie That Proved the Point

Rich Lowry points out that during the David Geffen-Hillary Clinton-Barack Obama dust-up of last week, Hillary Clinton's staff referred to David Geffen as Obama's "campaign finance chair."

This, it turned out, was a lie -- it's hard to think anything is an innocent oversight when it comes to the Clintons -- probably deliberately calculated to more closely link Geffen to Obama.

Lowry writes that this aspect of the incident illustrated Geffen's very point about the Clintons: "Everybody in politics lies, but they do it with such ease, it’s troubling."

Lowry goes on to describe "...the corruption at the core of the Clinton team — Bill’s heedlessness and the need to cover it up. It created a political ethic that has a rottenness at its heart, and Hillary has deeply partaken of it."

With Mrs. Clinton running for President, this is a point we can't afford to forget.
