As 2016 approaches and a possible Hillary campaign gears up, the Clintons have some past scandals of their own to attempt to label as “phony”:

Bill Clinton acknowledged the scrutiny of his wife will intensify if she decides to mount a second run for the presidency.

“It’s just the beginning,” he said of Rove’s remarks. “They’ll get better and better at it.”

Hillary Clinton coined the phrase “vast right-wing conspiracy” to complain that critics of the Clintons were trying to tear down the Clinton presidency. Bill Clinton quipped, “I’m still waiting for them to admit there was nothing to Whitewater.”

Via Instapundit and The Hill, a reminder about “nothing to Whitewater”

In fact, 15 people were convicted of crimes relating to Whitewater, including close family friends such as Jim and Susan McDougal.

Apparently the Clintons’ rule is “under 20 convictions constitutes non-scandal.”
