Comment Re:Yes, selecting the US president isn't "gossip" (Score 4, Insightful) 331

Those parts of the emails are valid to report on. Stuff like a staffer thinking Lessig is smug is not valid to report on. It's like the diplomatic cable leaks a few years ago -- a few of them were important revelations in the public interest, and most of them were unimportant gossipy personal stuff that unnecessarily strained all sorts of international relationships. Good reporters report on the part that matters, bad reporters just try to find something salacious to poke a bee hive.

Clinton is a candidate who says a lot of things I don't like to hear, and some that I do, and will probably do a fairly harmless mix of both that will leave us not much worse off in 4 years. She's consistently careful and calculating, not the sort who would take on huge risky projects. Basically, she's a conservative in a much truer sense than Trump who wants to implement drastic changes fast.
