    the lesson that McCain learned from Whitewater is that if Republicans breathlessly act as if a non-scandal is a scandal long enough, everyone starts treating it as if it was.

    Interestingly, I think that one difference between the Clinton years and today is that the Republicans are different, and McCain and Graham have been left behind. At least in the House, the Cantor/Ryan Republicans are less interested in helping the old school R's to put this albatross around the administration's neck. They're more interested in contorting the machinery of government further in favor of the very rich, so are too busy trying to game the rules to spend as much time fabricating a scandal.
