Which changes nothing.
Well yeah... Your point is an unrealistic imagining of someone working to argue for the sake of arguing and still doing a poor job of it.

In the real world, we all are generally impacted by what we do in the past when trying for future opportunities.

So goes life.

The point stands. He wasn't a candidate when he said it. Did you have an argument for that?

Wow! My comment must have stuck in your craw, months later.

I have a perfectly good argument for it--you're making my point for me. Either past history is a factor, or it's not.

If you're going to exempt people for comments they made when they weren't candidates, do it evenly. If you're going to hold people responsible for what they say, hold them responsible for what they've said lately. I was a dope when I was twenty, and I do my best not to still be one. Donald Trump was bragging about sexual assault when he was nearly my age.

Still, if someone wants to hold everyone responsible for everything they ever said in their life, without regard to what age they said it, I can't imagine how it would support your point. Trump was still keeping blacks out of his dad's apartments in his twenties.

But whatever standard you want to apply, just apply it evenly.
