See analysis here.
I think that people in public office ought to understand at the gut level that they're always under the microscope, and that it's impossible to keep anything under the rug indefinitely. But comparing what Craig did to, say, what Bill Clinton did, it seems that the Senator is being punished much more harshly for a much lesser infraction, if any infraction indeed occurred. If double standards are being accepted as a matter of course, then our country is in real trouble.
