The damage is done again. . . Once again the Clinton campaign goes into attack mode, and Hillary is left in the undesirable position of apologizing for the gaffe. Mistake, coincidence or. . .

IMO, hillary apologized so it would go back into the news again, not because she was sorry.

Not sure she had a need to apologize. I consider his drug use a legit campaign issue.

So if someone was a rapist in high school, or murdered people, that should also be excused? Yeah, I'm exagerating, but we are electing a president people. My background check went past 20+ years when I went to adopt a child(and I'm only in my 30's). I expect even better scrutiny to go into my presidential options. They do represent us to the world.

Wasnt it the Clintons who said that your actions as a teen didnt matter, (i.e. didnt inhale), but now that the actions are of someone else, OF COURSE IT MATTERS.

Oooh another example of the Clintons wanting it both ways.

If this righteousness wasn't coming from someone who supported a cocaine using alcoholic with a DUI, it might be recognized as an honest concern, and not one born out of blind partisanship.

I'm sorry, I dont recall doing cocaine, alcohol, or even ever having a DUI.. Would be bad since i dont drink or ever have done drugs.. not even weed.

Hillary did make a comment, are you accusing Hillary of doing cocaine, alcohol, and having a DUI?

If your speaking of "Bush", I dont recall Bush even commenting on the subect, please show me where he has because until then, its yet another baseless left wing attack on Bush for something he didnt do.

Bushes DUI is well documented, and he has admitted to being an alcoholic for a good portion of his life. When asked in 2000 about cocaine and other drug use, he said what is in the past didn't matter, and refused to answer the question directly, and in doing so effectlively admitted to using drugs.

Personally, I'd be more concerned with corruption and decision making than drug use.
