Skip to comments.Tony Blankley: Inside Hillary's mind
Posted on 06/22/2005 1:20:17 AM PDT by JohnHuang2
About once a year I review a book in this column that ought to be required reading for people who care about politics. Edward Klein's "The Truth About Hillary" is such a book. The pre-publication leak about the book that Bill Clinton had allegedly talked about raping his wife was off-putting for me. I don't usually waste my time reading salacious scandal books from the left or the right. But I was advised to take a look at this book, which I read last weekend. It was worth my time. This is not a scandal book intended merely to gratify the reader's salacious interests. Instead, Mr. Klein has written a serious political and psychological biography of the most likely next Democratic nominee for president and thus, quite plausibly I fear, the next president of the United States. Although this is a heavily researched book that includes amongst its sources almost 100 people who are or were personally close Mrs. Clinton, this is not a peek through a keyhole. Instead, it is a peek and more than a peek into the mind of Hillary. And, whether you like or hate Hillary, the inside of her mind is a fascinating place in which to rove about. Hillary haters will certainly find further evidence to support their sentiment. Principled liberals , I suspect, will be deeply disconcerted by what they will find out about her mind in this book. But for people who like their presidents, ruthless, expedient and very smart (in a dangerous time those are not all bad features), the portrait Mr. Klein paints may well not be seen as negative. In fact, as the author notes, Mrs. Clinton has more than a little in common with Richard Nixon.

I am not a fan either. He reminds me of anything but "humble". When John the Baptist was the voice telling others to "repent", he was honest to the core, including his sandals, basic diet, and desert tent. Jerry Falwell is no John the Baptist.
Anyway, his comments are not going to help Christians or the Republicans, IMO.
I really think the roots of her paranoia and anger go back to her childhood when her father gave her a toaster and a radio as bath toys.
A good look into Hillary's childhood is in Gail Sheehy's "Hillary's Choice". Very illuminating. It is a very good book.
You're totally right!
Yes. I really think the roots of her paranoia and anger go back to her childhood when her father gave her a toaster and a radio as bath toys.
""She has a long memory and very influential friends. Remember the full court press on bimbo eruptions?"
more influential friends that herself and bill?
this doesnt explain why the GOP is so afraid of her, they certainly werent afraid of bill
I'd vote for Janet Reno before I'd vote for her.
Maybe she has copies of their FBI files.
so every memeber of the GOP has been involved in misconduct that is on file with the FBI?
You ask a silly question, you get a silly answer. The Clintons have celebrity status and are the best fund raisers in politics. Hillary is the odds on favorite to win the Presidency in 2008. They have at least the grudging respect of the GOP. I wouldn't call it fear.
""They have at least the grudging respect of the GOP"
Why in the world would they have anyone in the GOP's respect?
Because they have political power. Bill Clinton was the first Dem to be elected to two terms since FDR. They are the puppet masters of the Dem party.
I don't see her attraction. She always seems like she is bored, she has little experience, she has done nothing of significance, and she has contempt for our military. Then there are the scandals and her lies, accusing the Monica fiasco as the right wing conspiracy. (I read that it was one of her close buddies who recommended Monica - which seems truly strange.)
The Rodham brothers turned out to be the scum of the earth, as did their sister.
Now there's a plot for a horror movie for you.
She is backed by Satan himself. That is her attraction to all the sheeple. The great DECEIVER is backing her.
Absolutely. Do not let your guard down. I look at her face and see evil incarnate.
I totally agree with you about Jerry Falwell, but there are times when I wish that he would keep his mouth shut.
