Hillary Vs. "A Simple Question"

Senator Hillary Clinton, who is widely expected to make a run for the Presidency in 2008, evidently finds that answering a simple "yes" or "no" question, a real "no-brainer," can be a complex intellectual exercise.

That, or maybe she just forgot to do her homework before she voted to send our troops to Iraq, and is reluctant to 'fess up. Oops!

Possible Reading List Addition

Julia Gorin has an interesting review and commentary in JWR on Ed Klein's book The Truth About Hillary, which alludes to an alarming personality disorder on Hillary's part that could only be called scary when one considers the concept of Bubba's missus as a possible DNC nominee in the 2008(or any other) Presidential election.

The column is here.

For the psycho-broad species, every move, every word, every interaction with a fellow human being is a calculation, a strategic play, a means to an end. Every day is an exercise in manipulating and controlling others with whom her professional future is entwined, the objective being to make it to the next day. (Klein notes that Hillary's loathing of the media stems from her inability to control them.) When such a woman is given that first opportunity by a hapless employer, mentor or public, a day can turn into a month, can turn into a year, can turn into a career—until she becomes unstoppable even though she was out of her league from the start.

I don't always look for peoples' motivations when I decide how I feel about them, I'm more concerned with their actions and how their actions impact others. I've always thought Hillary and Hubby were evil, and that was that, I was never all that interested in the details of their sordid existence, though I was proven right during the latter half of Clinton 1's second term. You could very nearly imagine having Hill & Bill(sorry, back then it was Bill & Hill, and Monica) settle the personal differences that no doubt sprung up in the Residence back then-- "You got caught, you lamebrain!" -- on Jerry Springer, who enjoys the sort of background that would bond him instantly with our former President.


I may buy this book purely for entertainment purposes, however, due solely to having had my curiosity piqed by reading the review.
