    I won't believe anything bad about Snuffleupagus until Media Matters writes it and Pete posts it.
    Better never than late.

    It's a donation to get access. Lotsa people did it ... even conservatives.

    More on why I say this donation issue is more like an "optic-al" illusion than a scandal.

    “Those donations were a matter of public record, but I should have made additional disclosures on air when we covered the Foundation,” he said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

    “And I now believe that directing personal donations to that foundation was a mistake,” said Stephanopoulos, who served as an aide to former President Clinton before leaving the White House for a successful TV career.

    “Even though I made them strictly to support work done to stop the spread of AIDS, help children and protect the environment in poor countries, I should have gone the extra mile to prevent even the appearance of a conflict,” he added.
    I get that perception is reality to some people, but there really isn't anything to see here. A mistake in judgment perhaps in not making the donations known beforehand, but that's all this amounts to.

    How is that any different than the way that politics is run in your country? Think the Koch brothers' investment in Congress is just for the heck of it?
    Let's see if we can find a solution. It's something that I think is, frankly, maybe not as difficult as people have thought over the years.

    No, it is done, but not at the level and scale that the Clintons have attempted to achieve. Buying access and influence is as old as politics. Selling the Lincoln bedroom for donations isn't normally done, though. You'll have to ask Bill about that.

    Only if you accept mistaken judgement. Me thinks intentional omission.

    You have not proven the difference in the very least.
