Not Their Town

Karen's commenters try to explain it to her, but the basic issue is that over the Clintons' long political careers in Washington, the press has constantly treated perfectly normal behaviors as somehow weird, unseemly, or inappropriate (and, at times, illegal). The Clinton campaign has a website, which has a contribute button on the front page, as probably does every single campaign website in existence. So, any front page announcement is going to... be near the contribution button.

Everyone knows this is perfectly normal. Except for Clinton, when it's somehow telling of... the fact that she's operating just like every other candidate in the race. For some reason she isn't entitled.
