    Depends on the said actions of said aspiring politician, and ones views on ethics.

    It would depend on ones view of ethics and one could also argue that politics in and of istelf is inherently unethical.

    Again it would depend on ones perspective... Its a perceptual argument that could go many ways.

    So now you've changed from thinking this is a referendum on Barclay's to a referendum on spouses associating with bankers? Come on, you're smarter than this.

    I would say that. I'm convinced that an honest person can't get elected to public office.

    No. I'm asking what peoples "problem" with this? Whats wrong with Bill Clinton getting a ton of money from some bank to give a speech? Just trying to see if the substance of the criticism is more than just "CLINTON!!!! I DONT LIKE HER!"?

    I would thing most former presidents would get a fast track through the state department with such a request, don't think it really matters who's in charge at the time.
