    If the information does not fall under a reasonable expectation of privacy, then yes. Elected politicians communications in the course of doing their job should be transparent.

    Was your point simply to summarize one of the major problems with the American electoral process?

    In politics there is no such thing as fair. I don't consider it a problem. I like and prefer freedom of speech. The more the merrier. All you have to do is look at the campaign rhetoric from the late 1700's to the early 1800's and you will see that quite frankly nowadays the rhetoric is actually quite bland and very tame. They campaign like little girls most of the time. They don't sling mud like they used to. If a modern contender went up against a early 1800's one, modern contender would get their lunch ate and their head handed to them on a engraved silver platter.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    Political discussions of strategy.

    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    No, no, no... Republicans are forbidden to use the words of their opponents verbatim, and if you do... the journ-O-lists and the likes of head of joaquin will be on the attack. It's your fault, you are guilty for bringing up the idiocies of the Democrat/Socialist candidate. The 2008 election proved that perfectly. It is the norm today.
