Where were you, Hillary? Why did you not offer Michael Brown's mother your arm to walk across the bridge together -- as mothers, and as women standing against racist bigotry and murder? Why don't more of us wonder this?
Humor me because you know that anyone over 50 knows that the trusty Blackberry with its keyboard makes life so much better.
This controversy is about trust, not the rule of law. If the four steps below are addressed quickly, rather than in a tortured process of lawsuits and awkward press conferences, Americans will quickly forget this scandal and move on to other news.
The real issue is about ethics and character, both much more essential in a secretary of state -- and president -- than how they handle emails.
Jeb Bush gets early style points for taking on his critics about his support for comprehensive immigration reform, perhaps realizing he has already lost the Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, and Mark Levin talk radio primaries anyway.
Sensitive data leakage is of utmost concern to corporate management and it should be for a former First Lady and New York Senator as well as a sitting Secretary of State.
None of this stuff -- irritating as each item may be with regard to how the Clintons do things -- is actually important enough to threaten her candidacy. There is nothing, so far at least, that makes for a compelling, specific storyline.
If you're like me, you have a personal email address and a professional one. And you're careful to not mix the two. Simple enough, right? Apparently...

The Democratic and Republican gristmills got to work last week on Hillary Clinton's "homebrew" email, and the ensuing firestorm underscored an alarming lack of cyber-savvy among the leading players of the 2016 election. It also raised a serious question: Should the Secret Service protect presidential candidates from cyber attacks?
Regarding the 30,000+ emails that you admitted destroying, when did you destroy them, before or after the congress and/or the State Department made their email request to you?
Imagine a world where the celebrity faces that were missing from the ad campaigns today were gone forever because of something routine, like a hemorrhage, that could have been managed in a hospital setting or with an experienced midwife.
After my initial elation at the rise of conferences for women, I decided to dig deeper and check if anything substantive is being accomplished at these events. Or are women's conferences simply an excuse for a feel good work day away from the office?
If we have a high ranking public official concerned that her emails are up for grabs because the opposition party seeks to undermine her and the president she works for, she will (perhaps should) do what is necessary to protect her immaterial, unfiltered thoughts that made their way into emails.
The revelation that potential presidential candidate Hillary Clinton used a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State has shown more about the media's open disdain for the Clintons than anything about Hillary herself.
