ATLANTA– I am finding the fallout from the WikiLeaks document release to be utterly fascinating. While most of the revelations have not been all that surprising, the increasing indications that Hillary Clinton may have skirted the edges of international law truly are. Not three weeks ago, the media was openly discussing whether Hillary Clinton should challenge Barack Obama in 2012 for the Democratic nomination, given the poor showing by Democrats in the midterm elections. Now, on the basis of these revelations from WikiLeaks, there are increasing and credible calls for Mrs. Clinton’s resignation.
What a stunning and completely unexpected turn of events. Can Mrs. Clinton weather this storm politically? WikiLeaks still has plenty more to reveal and the scandal has already reached historic proportions. Hillary Clinton may need to channel Bill Clinton to get through this one.
