Reality disagrees with you. No one can ever hold to those standards. No one.

So, you’re arguing that Clinton simply couldn’t have stopped herself from setting up her own server?

Shit, Sean. This was not like stealing a package of pencils from the supply cabinet at work. Or fudging an expense report (Mark Hurd was fired as the CEO of HP for that one, btw.)

She went out, bought a damn mail server, hired a consulting company to set it up, hired an IT guy to run it for her, and then ran her official correspondence through it.

I will grant you that people oughtn’t be fired for stealing an occasional ream of paper from the supply cabinet. But sorry, all employees in all organizations should be expected to run their correspondence through their organizations IT infrastructure, and there is no good reason for not doing so. None.
