I wonder how many people defending Clinton's receipt of $$$$$ from Goldman Sachs also lauded @mtaibbi for his book GRIFTOPIA.

That's one of the things that annoys me with primary campaigns (and to some extent campaigns in general). Partisans of one candidate feel the need to defend actions they probably wouldn't defend otherwise.
I think it is partly that, but also the prevailing opinion in the political community that there's no way to compete in the current environment without playing the money game at that level. I think there's a lot of resentment about it, but they still feel like it is the only way. (I think that resentment extends to anyone who can manage to avoid it to an extent, as well.)
Ooh, Imma have to read that.
It's got a permanent spot on my Kindle.
