That's what friends are for

The New York Times gives us a look at the relationship between Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin.
The jolting development highlighted not only the intersecting lives of Mrs. Clinton, Ms. Abedin and Mr. Weiner, but also the pattern that has characterized the Clintons’ relationships with the sometimes oddly behaving inhabitants of their insular world: Even amid accusations of sexual or financial impropriety, the Clintons’ first instinct is to hunker down and protect those in their orbit, sometimes leading to more ugly eruptions later and, eventually, to messy public breakups.
Are the Clintons loyal to their friends?
Or do they attract dysfunctional types like themselves?
