Don't we ever learn?

This story has been making the rounds lately (via NRA).

As tantalizing as the prospect of Hillary getting the Martha Stewart treatment is, we all really should know better by now. There are several good reasons why Hillary isn't going to prison before 2008.

First, Dick Morris has a habit of exaggerating things. I sometimes wonder if he isn't still secretly loyal to the Clintons, purposely gossiping about imminent indictments or other scandals in order to keep the Clinton-haters in a lather.

Second, don't ever underestimate the slipperiness of the Clintons. While Hillary might not have Bill's charm and political instincts, she does understand how the legal system works. After having covered her tracks so well for so long, it seems unlikely she would let something like this get past her.

Bottom line: You can't beat the Clintons in the courthouse. The legal system is the Clinton's Briar Patch; it's exactly where they want to be. Instead of hoping for long-delayed Justice to finally catch up with them, you need to attack the Clintons where they are politically vulnerable.

This is Hillary's Achilles Heel. Smart as she is, she's no Bill. She can be beaten. Beaten like a rented Mule or Red-headed Stepchild, especially in Red America.

But by the ballot box. Not by the Jury Box.

Unfortunately, I reluctantly agree. It just steams me that some people are above the law.

It is, however, true that in order to meter out justice it must be at the ballot box. Why in God's name did she have to move to my home state to get elected? Aarrgg!

Adding strength to your argument is the fact that the judge in the Rosen trial is a Clinton appointee. The judge has already made it clear that the case will not expand.
