Who are these people who keep criticizing the allegedly destructive patterns of Bill Clinton, while talking about his wife like she was an angel of political courage and dignity who Bill keeps betraying and cursing with his male activities?
Granted, Bill doesn't seem to have a full deck these days. The charisma is still there but he shoots off his mouth in ways that are lose/lose for his family -- AND may also be lose/lose for the campaign of St. Hillary.
Well, she may be St. Hillary for the sexists, but she's not St. Hillary for the United States of America. To the contrary, it would be hard to find ONE Democratic Senator (maybe Joe *puke* Liebermann when he was even a token Democrat) who has a rubber stamp voting record for all of the most murderous and horrific agendas of George W. Bush! In short, St. Hillary for the pugs, but not St. Hillary for the progressive soul of America, which she has turned into her personal spittoon and by now it's filled to the brim.
So, how about just leaving their marriage alone? Jeez, all the people who want to reduce Hillary Clinton's treacherous record in Congress to some kind of brain dead microcosm of her saintly marriage to Bill.
Well, if you think this woman is a saint, I've got a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you.
"Behind closed doors" SHOULD HAVE BEEN where all that infinitely personal material was left, but now comes the righteous grave diggers trying to make connections between (this is beyond surreal) Hillary’s contemptibly passive and cowardly "political" life, and unspoken marital dynamics. My God, it's her husband again! He's that dirty man who is trashing his saintly wife's Presidential campaign.
Look, Hillary is Hillary and Bill and Bill and it's no one's bloody business WHAT kind of marriage they have and what EACH of them must ultimately answer to. This was true before and it's still 100% true.
So if you're into sleazy gossip, why don't you broadcast what happens in your bedroom on national television, but if you're not, then God in heaven, leave the personal life of the Clinton's alone.
And PLEASE don't draw high schoolish conclusions about how their political life is a macrocosm of their personal life.
BUT MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL, don't let Hillary Clinton "off the hook” for being a one on a scale of one to ten for honorable and creative American politicians. FORGET Bill's zipper. Hillary is a dud. She's cowardice incarnate and spends most of her time sucking up to the elite/corporate status quo.
And if we make the TERRIBLE mistake of electing this liberal-hating woman, we will spend the next four years (at least) looking at a clone of George W. Bush in a dress.
Politics, politics, politics; that's the issue! NOT a soap opera marriage.
