Was it an error or simply clever politics? Whichever it was former Sen. Rick Santorum isn’t telling, as he formally announced on Wednesday that he is once again seeking the Republican nomination for president.

The bizarre error took place after Santorum’s campaign website went live and an “error page” suddenly appeared featuring that famous or rather “infamous” photo of madam Clinton wearing those oversized dark sunglasses while holding her cell phone and appearing to be emailing, with a caption directly  opposite the photo announcing;  “We’re sorry, but we couldn’t find that page. But we do have this search box. You know, ‘for convenience.’”

The error page highlighting Clinton seems like a brilliant attempt by Santorum to remind the public how the former Secretary of State used a private email account and a personal unsecured server to conduct sensitive government business, and perhaps compromising both our national security and her credibility as a serious presidential candidate.

Worst yet the destruction of over 30,000 emails purposely deleted without any government oversight and the willful “scrubbing” of her personal server reads like a cheap mob-laced paperback, rather than an honest and forthright candidate with nothing to hide.

Clinton said she used a private domain for her official work during her time at the State Department out of “convenience,” but admitted in retrospect “it would have been better” to use multiple emails.

She went on to explain: “I trust the American people to make their decisions about political and public matters and I feel like I’ve taken unprecedented steps for these emails to be in the public domain,” Clinton said. “I went above and beyond what I was requested to do.”

However the issue for Clinton goes far beyond deleted emails, and scrubbed servers, to the core principles of leadership, honesty and judgment, and if recent history proves anything it’s that she has already demonstrated through her actions as Secretary of State, that she is undeserving to hold the office of the presidency.
