[There’s a new poll out showing 71 percent of Democrats say Hillary should keep running even if she’s indicted.]
I think 120 percent of Republicans should agree with that poll, and I think it’s a great thing that criminal indictment doesn’t disqualify you as a presidential contender. I think that’s a great proposition to test in this election.
I think it’s great for the country. I think it’s taking things that were behind the scenes and now playing them out in public. If we don’t care whether our president has any respect for the law or not, we deserve a president who has no respect. You know, if Hillary Clinton can do something that others have been indicted and thrown out of office for, but she is deemed to be too important to fail, I think ‘too important to fail’ is a proposition we should test.
