The media may have treated Hilary Clinton unfairly at times over the course of this campaign (though nothing came close to the silent treatment it afforded John Edwards). But aside from her Iraq War vote (and even that's almost never discussed with the complexity and precision it demands), the biggest flaw in her press coverage has been the media's failure to effectively explore the kind of president she might be based upon her record, which includes her vote against banning cluster bombs in civilian areas. Knowledge of that vote, as well as other relevant actions in the Senate, both positive and negative, would give the American people a more solid foundation on which to cast their vote.

But these things get lost in a horse race.
