What Difference Do Hillary Clinton's Lies Make?

Jonah Goldberg gives some examples of why Clinton's dishonesty matters. Other reasons could be added to the list.

If you want some idea of how badly the Benghazi story is going for the left, read this piece by Salon. Notice how they have to frame the discussion (whether there's a "smoking gun" or "scandal", whether the evidence qualifies as "obvious", etc.) and how much they have to concede. Notice, too, that they'll criticize somebody like Susan Rice or "the Obama administration" without addressing the most negative implications for more prominent individuals, like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
