He, and especially his wife, behaved badly. But it's worth taking a closer look at what was considered criminal in McDonnell's case, because, at least so far, some in the press are suggesting that Hillary Clinton's conduct must meet a much higher threshold to be considered problematic. When ABC's George Stephanopoulos interviewed Peter Schweizer, author of "Clinton Cash" on Sunday, Stephanopoulos…

"In a lot of ways, Biden would be the true anti-Hillary. He is completely uninhibited, he is impossible to script -- which makes him seem authentic -- and he has a human appeal that everyone can relate to.
