    So I don't know the answer to this. . .

    But is anyone working for any of these campaigns 100 percent clean?

    We've already seen this with the Edwards bloggers. Is there any major consultant or ad person that hasn't said something, done something or pushed an ad that offended someone?

    I'm not passing judgment on Obama or Hillary here. It's one thing to hold these candidates responsible for how their people behave during their current employment, but do Hillary/Obama/Edwards have to "answer for" or "explain" what a staffer might have done in 1995?

    I have no idea what the expectations should be.

      Most campaign advisors I know are major league a*sholes.  For those who are deeply offended here, I recommend that you step away from your computer and actually work on a campaign.  Nasty nasty business it is.

        behavior of the campaigns.  We don't need accountability just advocacy.  We don't need responsibility just passion.

        Democracy has been achieved and it smells and looks like a port-a-pottie.  Obama just proves he's an ordinary politician.
