    is on shaky ground when they resort to legalisms and technicalities to defend their argument.  It means you've entered the "that depends on what the meaning of 'is' is" territory, and is viewed as exceedingly dishonest.  She knew what she was doing when she held a fundraiser there, you knew, I know...  We all know.  The administration might want to call certain things "interrogation techniques", but they're still torture.  Likewise in this situation.  Lipstick on a pig doesn't make it any less a pig.  One of the things I detest most about the Clinton campaign is resorting to these sorts of technicalities and dishonest renamings.

      They both held fundraisers. Fundraisers were specifically not prohibited. Obama's post-fundraising press conference was specifically prohibited.

      This is so simple. Why is it so difficult to comprehend?

        Obama did it quickly and quietly, in keeping with the spirit of the agreement. Hillary Clinton shouldn't have been fielding questions or have been actively demanding that the Florida delegation be seated.

        You can keep up this charade if you like, but that's all it is.
