If a scandal happens to a non-candidate with no opponents does it impact her status as front-runner for her party's nomination? This is the question facing Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party right now. The most likely answer, at least in the short run, is no. This is also an example of why Ms. Clinton's strategy of ensuring no opposition for the nomination in 2016 is so important. A decently funded somewhat competitive primary opponent could begin to make inroads into Ms. Clinton's lead because of the latest revelations of how, during her time as Secretary of State, the Clinton Foundation raised money.
