I personally would vote for Bonds and Clemens because I believe they were HOFers before they started taking PED's. If they has simply retired the year they started using PED's, they would have deserved to be in the HOF, imo.
However, if they had started using earlier, like McGwire did, I would not want them in the HOF, no matter their production overall. No matter how many MVP's and Cy Young's they won, if they won them while using PED's, they don't belong in the HOF.
