I just finished the book The Truth About Hillary by Edward Klein.
I come away thinking this is a formidable woman. Let me tell you up front, I have not liked this woman, Ms. Clinton, and I do not like her now, and I would never consider voting for her. So, I am not going to pick apart the author or his evidence, supported by over 30 pages of notes in the back of the book and numerous citations throughout the book. The book rehashes, for the informed, much of what we already knew.
After I finished the book, I felt soiled, like I need a long hot shower, not by the writer, but by the naked corrupt ambition of the subject. Let me, also, say, I have two daughters. I would love to see a woman president. I would love to say to my grand-daughter that she could grow up to be president. However, that is not a reason to vote for this woman for president; and she is surely aiming for that office with all the drive in her body. I don’t believe she is a good role model as a wife, as a mother, and as a leader.
Early in the book Klein says:
All presidents live inside a bubble, but Hillary’s bubble was unique,because it was designed to conceal her moral imperfections.
Hillary’s bubble was an effective political tool. It camouflaged the moral decay in the Clinton White House…
As for Vince Foster, Klein says:
As the person she trusted most in the world, Hillary often assigned Vince the sensitive task of cleaning up the political messes created by her careless and corrupt husband.
Vince fell into a suicidal depression once he realized that Hillary, as First Lady, could no longer be his intimate friend-and that he, in turn, could no longer protect her from scandal and her flagrant disregard for the law.
Hillary learned about private investigators in her work (while at Yale Law School) on behalf of the Black Panthers and the Communist apologists Robert Treuhaft and Jessica Mitford,” wrote Barbara Olson. “Now Hillary was constantly checking up on Bill, not just to learn the extent of his betrayals, but to assess the danger he posed to their joint political career.”
If Hillary gets elected, not only will we once again have “the advice of the smartest politician in the party-Bill Clinton, but Harold Ickes, Susan Thomases, James Carville, Stan Greenberg, and Mandy Grunwald.”
“The culture of concealment and deception that had infected the American presidency during the years of Bill Clinton’s administration would be back in full swing.”
Klein writes about the marriage of convenience between Hillary and Bill, the possibility of rape for the conception of Chelsea, whether Hillary is a lesbian, and the many lesbians that gathered around Hillary, political lesbianism, and affairs of Bill, including graphic tryst-stories of Bill and Monica Lewinsky. As I said, it’s all enough to make you feel soiled. The final bit of information about the book, is that Klein tries to compare Nixon and Hillary, with Nixon concluding, “Hillary inspires fear!”
