I am woman

". . . the appalling cast of tabloid gargoyles who drove the scandal. Remember them? Treacherous thatched-roof-haired drag-queen Linda Tripp, with those dress-for-success shoulder pads? Cackling, fact-lacking hack Lucianne Goldberg, mealy-mouthed Pharisee Kenneth Starr—the whole buzzing swarm of legal, congressional and gossip industry flesh flies, feasting on the entrails. And, of course, hitting “send” on each new revelation that no one else would publish, the solitary, perfectly named Matt Drudge, operating in pallid obsession out of his sock-like apartment in Miami."

Wow. I'd like to see the list of people who put her in charge of anything more sophisticated than a jump rope. The good news is, now I know what a tabloid gargoyle looks like.

What did she say wrong? She goes on to castigate the feminist critics for joining the harpyhood.

I actually think it was good that Congress focused a whole year or more on the Great Blowjob Crisis of 1998- it kept them busy on meaningless trivia and from doing anything else

Is the attack on feminists you refer to?

"Nor does she acknowledge that Hillary had no idea that Diana Blair’s notes would be made public, if ever, until much further in the future."

Quite an argument, quite an argument. I also like this reference:

"that the two mighty news magazines would become a shadow and a corpse . . ."

I suppose Tina would know.

She must be getting old, though. no reference to Koch. (Though she does manage a de rigueur reference to Fox, that non-news network)

The biggest danger to a H. Clinton candidacy is the question that will never be asked by the press but is on everyone's mind - "If you become President, if (when?) Bill is outed for further daliances during your marriage, will you divorce him or declare this the age of open marriages for convenience?"

I'm not for a second saying that her personal life should matter with respect to her leadership of the country. But everyone has to acknowledge what the world, this country, and the press is like - it would (will?) be a zoo.

Personally, I'd rather take my chances with a fresh face - maybe someone newly married, and with a new child - Chelsea if it must be a Clinton.

Chelsea would be a nice coup de grace for the country (is she quite old enough? I suppose Sotomayor or Sunstein could interpret the age limit away).

But I have to disagree with you about Bill. No one cares about his sex life. His political influence will be quite bad enough. (And as to his sex life, it reminds me of the 30 Rock episode where Jack is in the Clinton offices in Harlem and he says to his paramour, "Let's go find a corner of this place that hasn't been defiled yet.")

It's not that we care about Bill's sex life - it's the massive distraction from important matters that will occur if President Clinton has to deal with another bimbo explosion. I don't believe any President has ever gotten divorced while in office (in fact Reagan was the first and last who was divorced). It's just part of tha baggage that Hillary would bring with her to the White House.
