Hillary's E-mails

I think this opening paragraph in the Washington Post article about Hillary's e-mails (written by Ruth Marcus) is a grabber...

For those of you salivating — or trembling — at the thought of Hillary Clinton being clapped in handcuffs as she prepares to deliver her acceptance speech at the Democratic convention this summer: deep, cleansing breath. Based on the available facts and the relevant precedents, criminal prosecution of Clinton for mishandling classified information in her emails is extraordinarily unlikely.

The whole article is a pretty sane (and fair) analysis of the situation. Basically the conclusion is that the use of the e-mail server was stupid, but not criminal.
