Re: Clinton hypocrisy
I think you'll find it quite common, not only in cyber security, the Clinton has contradicted herself one way or another.

As far as not understanding the crux of the issue I think it may be an age issue in terms of ease to assimilate but not overall for conveying their ideals. In areas where a candidate lacks they should defer to an expert, there is no shame in saying you don't have all the information. But refusing to acquire it from a proper source is an issue.

Clinton hypocrisy
Although I don't think she understands the real nuances of the privacy/security debate, I do find it bothersome that Clinton has repeatedly praised NSA spying efforts and wants more data gathering, but is so happy to have her own information held privately. 

It may seem agist, but I think half the issue with politicians not understanding the technological issues at play, is because they didn't grow up with any of the technology we use now. The best president in this case would be the one who listened to expert advice.
