It makes none // But now you have gone // And you must be looking very old tonight

For my part I totally understood Hillary Clinton’s statement “What difference does it make?” when it comes to Benghazi. What difference indeed does what actually happened there make to furthering this Smart Person’s Important and Historic Career Aspirations? (Which is all that counts here.)
This is a useful incident because I think it exemplifies and distills the difference between left and right in a single, short statement. The right will never, ever convince the left that it ‘makes a difference’, and the left will never convince the right that it doesn’t. There’s almost no point in talking about it. Which makes it fascinating to think about.
