Larwyn's Link Explosion: ''Hillary's not a monster. As far as I know."

Hillary wants to run on her "experience", so why is she hiding as much of her experience as possible? This time, the Clintons decided to lock up the "Pardongate" papers, which describe how Bill Clinton issued hundreds of controversial pardons at the end of his second term. Ed Morrissey calls this internal conflict "curious". I call it a run-of-the-mill Clintonian coverup, along with the redacted pages in the Barrett Report, the still unreleased portions of the Cox Report, the millions of "classified" HillaryCare documents, her undisclosed tax returns and the financial backers of the Clinton Foundation Library and Gentlemen's Lounge. Hell, we could save the world's rain-forests simply by recycling some of these stashed archives.

Will Puerto Rico decide the Democratic nomination? Fausta notes that Puerto Rico has 8 superdelegates and 55 conventional delegates. If the race comes down to the wire those relative few may hold the keys to the nomination.

Conflict-of-interest: On July 27, 2007, Nancy Pelosi received more than $20,000 is contributions from drug-maker Amgen. On August 2, Pelosi introduced a bill that would benefit Amgen by permitting expanded Medicaid coverage for some HIV-positive patients. In addition, to the $20K Pelosi received in July, another $20K was received by Pelosi's re-election campaign from Amgen executives and the corporate political action committee. Ethical!

Rick Pearson has a funny: commenting on Obama's Samantha Powers debacle (she who called Hillary a "monster"): "Obama might have said, 'Hillary's not a monster. As far as I know.'"

Another unexplained windfall for Bill Clinton: Eagle-eyed PrairiePundit spots a WaTimes mention of another odd "contribution" to the Clintons

The spring before his wife began her White House campaign, former President Bill Clinton earned $700,000 for his foundation by selling stock that he had been given from an Internet search company that was co-founded by a convicted felon and backed by the Chinese government...

Sweet deal, Willie!
