Is Hillary Really Crooked?

The NYT asks, "Is Hillary Dishonest?" (because they don't want to use the c-word - crooked).
[W]hen Gallup asks Americans to say the first word that comes to mind when they hear “Hillary Clinton,” the most common response can be summed up as “dishonest/liar/don’t trust her/poor character.” Another common category is “criminal/crooked/thief/belongs in jail.”
The op-ed argues that this is all overblown. She's just pragmatic. She's a politician who thinks and talks the way politicians do. This just goes to show that you can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but only the NYT editorial staff can get fooled all of the time.
