64. I disagree with both your rationalizations.

 

1. If the Obama administration wishes it hadn't happened but makes the tactical choice not to make a stink about it (an eminently reasonable choice), there's still a clear indication that something went wrong somewhere.

2. Polling doesn't determine ethics or competence or anything like that. Millions of people get upset about total non-issues yet ignore serious problems. That's another way of saying that my judgment doesn't always concur with that of the majority. In 2008, there were apparently some people who were concerned that Hillary wore something that showed too much cleavage. I, as someone opposed to Hillary, thought that was the most ridiculous "issue" imaginable. Well, except for maybe whether John Edwards overpaid for a haircut or whether Barack Obama wrote something incriminating in a kindergarten essay.
