"Just as ..so do" is the idiom. Here the answer is A.
"even as they etc" is just another adverbial clause similar to this :

John appear to have been profoundly influenced by Rudy Giuliani, even as they never met physically.

Like Hillary Clinton, Rudy Giuliani is a president hopeful.

"Like" is used to compare nouns, not actions.

One more A.

Hello ,

Is this really an idiom: Just as ..so do

I read "Just as ..so too"

B,D,E -> all out. awkward sentence
C -> 'like' should be used to compare a likeness to other nouns

A should be it.

I am going for A only because B, C, D and E each have problems. Though I still don't understand the usage of 'even as' here.

Interestingly that statement is from a Time Magazine article:
