"It's the piety, stupid." This is how a very smart review by Chris Lehmann
in the New York Observer of Carl Bernstein's long awaited tome, A
Woman in Charge: The Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton, begins. The sentence
is an illumination. That's exactly what's wrong with her. She is pious
and cynical. Read this article: it is an illumination.
P.S.: In the same issue of the Observer, there's a piece by Jason Horowitz
persuasively disentangling Hillary's views on the war. Or at least her
views on the war on the day the Observer came out.
