E-mails Put Clinton’s Judgement into Question

(Palm Beach Post) It also brings into question what she would do as president.

Mary Sanchez makes many good points in her column “Christie’s whining shows where ‘Bridgegate’ began” (May 26). New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will never be a serious candidate for president.

His in-your-face attitude might sell in New Jersey but will not be popular enough in the states between New York and California. It certainly will not succeed while running against a woman like Hillary Clinton, who is good at declaring victim status. He will look like a bully, and perhaps he is.

However, Ms. Sanchez’ article falls short when she mentions the “more than 800 pages of emails from Clinton’s private account” released by the U.S. State Department, suggesting we are being tough on Ms. Clinton.

This strategy has become boring. When you’re caught, you list the number of pages released.

The real issue remains that she ignored policy by having her own computer server and deleting 30,000 emails. She claimed she had the right — because they were hers — but now claims they are owned by the State Department. Which is it? She provided paper copies to make it time-consuming to review and release. Who does that in the 21st century?

She claimed she never sent classified emails from her email account. Perhaps, but at the very least, the information was sensitive and on an unsecured server.

It puts her judgment in serious question. It also brings into question what she would do as president. So she will probably continue to avoid questions, as her answers make her look more unsuitable.

I can only hope the Democrats find a better candidate and Republicans make a good choice — so that Americans can be excited about the options.
