all of those things happened after they were president. mccain was reprimanded before, and the republicans still thought he was a swell enough guy to nominate.
Clinton lied on national television during the primaries, and yet the Democrats still thought enough of him to elect him.
Mccain was reprimanded for poor judgement. Hell, if a lapse of judgement restricts one from being president, Clinton, Obama, Reagan, Washington, etc... would never have been president.
George Washington once was accused of war crimes in the French and Indian War. He signed an agreement stating that he had murdered a french colonel. Thomas Jefferson hired someone to write slanderous articles about his supposed friend John Adams. Our current president spent years in the congregration of a minister who spewed hatred towards much of america.
IMO, anyone who thinks that one side is more guilty than the other is unable to see the forest for the trees. That applies to both sides.
