Are the Latest Political Scandals ‘Much Ado About Nothing’?

I discovered Shakespeare relatively early in life.  My oldest sister had a miniature leather-bound set of Shakespeare's plays, and I found those tiny, cunning little books completely irresistible.  Eventually I got around to reading the words inside those little books, and once I got the hang of the style and learned to decipher the meaning of the odd new words and phrases I found, I was hooked.  Most girls seem to latch on to ​Romeo and Juliet ​right off the bat, but my favorite was always Much Ado About Nothing​.  I loved the stinging repartee between Benedick and Beatrice, but the story of Claudio and Hero always frustrated me.
