PardonGate returns...

Clintons are as Clintons do. Hillary Rodham Clinton is running true to form by hiding from the American voters the records behind Bill Clinton's well funded flurry of pardons.

As Ed Morrissey points out:
Hillary is a curious candidate. She wants to run on her “experience” as First Lady in the Clinton administration — but she wants us to see as little evidence of that experience as possible. In fact, she says that “experience” is so compelling that we would want her in the White House answering the phone at 3 AM when a crisis occurs. If it really is that impressive, why is she and Bill going to such lengths to hide it?

The pardons present a very tricky problem for Hillary. That really does speak to the character of the Clinton administration, and obviously not in glowing terms.
