Jeb was in an awful rush to release all the emails he wrote

as Governor of Florida, now we probably know why. Likely he knew that Our Next President™ was about to have some issues, and wanted to be able to say "see, I played by the rules and even released my emails", doing this before this incident so it wouldn't look like he was beating up on Clinton after the fact.

My own guess is that this isn't as bad as it seems - that Clinton had staffers send any really important emails, and only sent "Hi! How're the kids!" emails in the capacity of SoS on her own account. Or at least that's what she'll claim, we'll never know for sure because many emails are likely gone.

Ah, the Clintons. They'd be entertaining as hell, if only they were a TV show.

1. I don't recall which thread it was in

but someone had posted an excerpt from the NYT article, I think it was, that suggested that the whole reason we're even hearing about it is that a FOIA request resulted in a metric ton of her emails being released, and many or all with the personal address. Now it's certainly possible that they withheld any they thought weren't 'safe' to release, but she seems to have been quite a prolific emailer.
