Deep Throat vs. Linda Tripp

With all the references to blowing (whistles) and Deep Throat going around, it's inevitable that Bill Clinton's name would come up (so to speak).

Lots of people are suggesting that if Mark Felt is an American hero, well then so is Linda Tripp (for example, here, here, here and here).

There is an important distinction to be made between Felt and Tripp, however. Linda Tripp exposed the moral shortcomings of President Clinton, and it was only after the fact that Bill perjured himself. Felt, on the other hand, was exposing prior criminal acts of a sitting president. A fine but important distinction.

Doesn't make what Clinton did suck any less (so to speak).
