The Hillary Papers … Archive of ‘Closest Friend’ Paints Portrait of Hillary Clinton as Ruthless First Lady
THE HILLARY PAPERS … Hillary Clinton as Ruthless First Lady, Imagine that?
Hillary Clinton is the overwhelming odds on favorite to be the Democrat presidential nominee for the 2016 presidential election, so when it comes to the Hillary Papers, What difference, at this point, does it make? Maybe this might be of some relevance … her early support for single-payer, despite later denials, is directly relevant to the current Obamacare debacle that will be an issue in the 2016 election. How is she going to be able to run from Obamacare when she had Hillary Healthcare?
If many think today that Barack Obama cannot be trusted, what would they think of Hillary Clinton who has a political motivation for everything that she does?
On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.”
Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.”
Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.”
The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that portray the former first lady, secretary of State, and potential 2016 presidential candidate as a strong, ambitious, and ruthless Democratic operative.
The papers of Diane Blair, a political science professor Hillary Clinton described as her “closest friend” before Blair’s death in 2000, record years of candid conversations with the Clintons on issues ranging from single-payer health care to Monica Lewinsky.
The question remains for 2016, does Hillary have too much political baggage in her past and a lack of accomplishments to be president? Please tell me that America has learned from just electing someone for being the first?
