Do you want Hillary answering the phone at 3AM?

While Hillary Clinton’s email trail about the Benghazi debacle has raised a lot of (justifiable) ruckus, and while there is concern over security leaks from her email system, there is a larger concern to focus on. The real concern about Hillary is not the question of what she’s hiding in her emails, it’s her judgment in using a private email server to begin with.
