According to James Comey, head of the FBI who happens to be a Republican, after sifting through 50,000+ emails at a cost of millions of dollars to the taxpayer, he was able to dig up 113 emails that contained classified material. Some of this classified material was classified after the mail was sent, some was buried in email threads, which, as anyone who gets email threads at work can verify can sometimes be mind bogglingly long and hard to follow. The recipient can’t control what other people send to her.
Let’s do the math:
113 classified emails/50000 emails total = .23%. (I rounded up)
I can only assume that James Comey went through all of Condoleeza Rice’s emails and Colin Powell’s emails and Madeline Albright’s emails for comparison and that none of our three most recent Secretary of State’s emails contained anywhere close to that number of unintentional violations.
That would be about 2 tenths of 1% of emails.
What would be considered “extremely careful”? Shouldn’t Comey provide a scale so we know what would be considered rigorously careful? Presumably, 50000 emails would contain 0 classified emails unintentionally passed between communicants.
In the absence of any data from other Secretaries of State, we have no way to know just how egregiously bad Clinton’s numbers are.
So, James Comey, Republican, can say whatever he likes about the standard of care that was applied here. There is no way of knowing whether this is higher or lower than any other secretary of state who used private emails.

This is how her testimony went down at the 9-11 Commission after the White House Finally let her testify after months and months of requests:
She might have lady parts but that doesn’t excuse the way she filibustered, “forgot” or behaved like she was irritated with the question about the name of the presidential daily briefing. It is clear,to ME, anyway, that she knows a lot more than she said. She lied for the Bush administration about 9-11. She did it willingly.
Putting her in the ticket would be stupid unless the Romney campaign knows something I don’t. The Democrats, misogynistic dicks that they are, wouldn’t have to use her gender as an excuse to go after her.

Ack! I just turned my oatmeal into soup. How do you fix that?
Anyway, I want to remind you guys that you only have a couple more weekends to make history in PA. This weekend and especially next weekend, will be important GOTV opportunities for those of you who want Hillary to kick Obama’s @$$. I know where I’ll be going this weekend. But, you ask, how can *I* get involved, Riverdaughter? I’m so glad you asked. To volunteer for Hillary in PA, check out this page: Pennsylvania for Hillary. Make History!
BTW, I have room in my car for a fellow traveller from the NJ area if anyone wants to come with me tomorrow. My mom has an extra bed. Lemme know if you’re interested in the comments.
In other news:
- Elton John says “there’s no one more qualified to lead this country” than Hillary. He was in NYC to raise money for Hillary last night. John also said, “I’m amazed by the misogynistic attitudes of some of the people in this country. And I say to hell with them …. I love you Hillary, I’ll be there for you.” Awwwww. Let’s all Crocodile Rock!
- Pelosi nixes Unity ticket again. The lady doth protest too much, methinks. What could Nancy be thinking? Surely, SURELY, she isn’t contemplating herself as Barack’s running mate? Would she? It’s just a thought. Please tell me how this couldn’t happen. (OTOH, it would explain an awful lot) On the other side, polls indicate that McCain and Condoleeza Rice would make a winning pair. Fess up, guys, you’ve been freeping this poll, haven’t you? You sly dogs. 😉
- Mr. Committment needs more time to assess the situation regarding China and Tibet before weighing in on whether to suggest a boycott. Well, that was clear.
- Oh, Wait! It’s not McCain and Rice. It’s McCain and BLOOMBERG. Well, that will solve the fundraising issue.
