*So* -- as Andy says -- why is it (whatever "it" is, and there does
seem some doubt) used against Clinton?

I can think of two possibilities (there'll be others)

1) it ("it") didn't happen

2) it ("it") did happen, but as Reagan and Bush Sr did "it" too
(apparently a somewhat different "it", but still involving selling
arms or part-armaments to China, it would be *very silly indeed* to
rang about Clinton doing "it".

I'd put my money on 2)

So why finger Clinton?
