CNN reports that Hillary Clinton likes to keep notes so she can circle back to people for personal vengeance.
Fayetteville, Arkansas (CNN) - Shortly before Hillary Clinton’s effort to pass health care reform died in the summer of 1994, the first lady asked a close friend and confidant for advice on “how best to preserve her general memories of the administration and of health care in particular.”
When asked why, according to the friend’s June 20, 1994, diary entry, Clinton said, “Revenge.”
What did she have against Christopher Stevens? Hillary only left her “close friend” unguarded, having denied his requests for more security, in one of the most dangerous cities in the world. And then lied about how he died. And hasn’t done a thing to make sure that those who killed him ever face justice.
The above is included in the papers of Diane Blair, Clinton’s close friend for decades. Blair also kept notes about Clinton’s attitude toward the media — which have, by and large, created the myth that Hillary is so smart and so amazing. The media love Hillary Clinton. It’s an asymmetrical relationship.
On Thanksgiving Day 1996, Blair wrote that Clinton thought the press were “complete hypocrites.”
“Say they want the truth, want power to be transparent, but in fact they prefer the backstage manipulation of B. Bush, N. Reagan, B. Truman, R. Carter,” Blair wrote, listing several former first ladies. “On her death bed, wants to be able to say she was true to herself and is not going to do phoney makeovers to please others.”
MSNBC has characterized the Blair papers — written, again, by Clinton’s close friend, as an “anti-Clinton” attack. They are the notes kept by Hillary Clinton’s close friend, at Hillary’s request.
So far, we’ve learned from the Blair papers that Hillary hates the media, that she is Bill Clinton’s scandal and sexual predator enabler, that she is ruthless in pursuing her own ends in a way that she clearly is not ruthless in pursuing America’s interests, and that she was willing to sacrifice other women for the sake of Bob Packwood’s vote on her 1990s health care plan. Hillary Clinton is hardly worthy of her feminist icon status. She remains the most overrated person in America.
Time’s Joe Klein wants you to not find any of that interesting. Clinton must have something on Klein, too.
