In response to skeeter20's comment:
He's reading from her own biography. =
Are you confused?
This wasn't a book club. This was a brain-storming session on how to politically attack her if she ran.
That information that she was depressed and suicidal in the past is in a book doesn't mean it isn't low as hell to attack her based on that.
Especially with all the other low-hanging fruit.
How could they be "attacking her on that", when they were talking confidentially. This is what campaign operatives do, they look through possible issues to raise. It is not "low" to bring up all possible issues confidentially in a private campaign discussion.
"While I do not condone what may have been Watergate-style bugging, it seems that said bugging revealed just how low Mr. Scared-Chipmunk-Obstructionist-Man's campaign was willing to go":
Bullcrap. It is only logical to discuss in a campaign strategy meeting, all possible issues.
One can only imagine what a David Axelrod confidential campaign discussion on how to personally attack Mitt Romney, might sound like. Mother Jones wouldnt need to record it, because David Corn is one of their operatives, pure and simple...he admitted he held the Romney 47% tape until releasing would do the most damage...
