Hint to Hillary: Try To Avoid “Illegal Eavesdropping” and “Campaign Strategist” in the Same Headline

Do you think Hillary Clinton was happy this story came out on July 4?

 Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s chief strategist is being accused of illegal eavesdropping in a lawsuit that alleges he and his polling firm monitored the personal e-mails of a former associate who started a rival company.
Mitchell E. Markel, a former vice president at Penn, Schoen & Berland, claims in the lawsuit that the firm began monitoring all messages sent from his personal BlackBerry device nearly a month after he had resigned and become president of his new business. The suit claims that Mark Penn, who is Clinton’s chief strategist and pollster, knew about and approved of the monitoring, which the suit says violates federal wiretapping laws.

Too bad we’re calling attention to it on July 5. And any time Sen. Clinton starts going on about the Bush administration and the NSA wiretapping program. What, she prefers privatization of wiretapping?
UPDATE: I suddenly flashed back to this Kaus item:

Hillary, Eavesdropper? Big Mama is Listening! Kf has obtained a copy of page 93 of the unreleased Gerth-Van Natta Hillary Clinton book, which describes how, during the ‘92 campaign, Hillary herself

“listened to a secretly recorded audiotape of a phone conversation of Clinton critics plotting their next attack. The tape contained discussions of another woman who might surface with allegations about an affair with Bill. Bill’s supporters monitored frequencies used by cell phones, and the tape was made during one of those monitoring sessions.”

And therein lies a brutally effective Obama attack, if he’s got the guts to use it… “Hillary Clinton is always so certain that what she’s doing is right… just like the president. She has repeatedly demonstrated that she believes the ends justifies the means… just like the president. She will run roughshod over anyone who stands in her way… just like the president. (This is an argument to a Democratic primary audience, remember.) If we want real change from this president, our party cannot nominate someone who uses the same tactics and methods as this president.”
