Watergate reporter shows how far we’ve declined

Possibly inadvertently.

From Watergate’s Carl Bernstein on Hillary’s global gossip mag (oops, top secret natural securities files):

Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein called out Hillary Clinton on Wednesday for continually blaming a “vast right-wing conspiracy” for her campaign woes.

“I think she has to acknowledge she’s made some terrible misjudgments and errors, particularly on the server,” Bernstein said during an interview on CNN.

“The vast right-wing conspiracy didn’t put the server in her damn closet. She’s going to have to get by this thing, and she’s going to have to acknowledge a terrible misjudgment it seems to be here.”

Bernstein, who gained fame after breaking the Watergate story with fellow Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward, said that Clinton’s massive loss to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary was a testament to the low levels of trust voters have in her. More.

Reality check: Think how little Nixon had to do to be forced to resign all those years ago, and how much Hill can get away with, including reckless endangerment of her country – and still be a top prez contender. That gulf, I would suggest, is the measure of the fact that voters are looking for a hand to feed them, not protect them.
