Hillary Rodham Clinton
National Review Online has an interview with Edward Klein, author of the new book on Hillary Rodham Clinton entitled The Truth About Hillary: What She Knew, When She Knew It, and How Far She’ll Go to Become President.
The interview attempts to get beyond/behind the recent controversy about an excerpt from the book.
Those of us who disagree with her politics, such as her previous attempt to socialize medicine in 1993, must deal with her in a more effective way than many people dealt with Bill Clinton. Let’s focus on the substance of her policy beliefs and not let her whitewash her own history.
To put things in perspective, consider these words about Bill Clinton from this posting:
We cannot forget that the real price America is likely to pay for the Clinton-Gore years will not be from inappropriate sexual dalliances, but from that administration’s peculiar dealings with China, which Bill Gertz outlines in his 2001 book entitled Betrayal: How the Clinton Administration Undermined American Security. Character does matter in the end.
Gertz has also elaborated previously on the growing threat from China in his 2000 book entitled The China Threat: How the People’s Republic Targets America.
In other words, Bill Clinton’s legacy will be about how how he did not deal with bin Laden and how he permitted untoward things to happen with China. Let’s bring a cool-headed, laser-like focus to Hillary Rodham Clinton and not let her get the upper hand in any public debate about important policy matters.
Dick Morris comments on Hillary with an editorial entitled Personal attacks on Hillary will only embolden her. Here is more commentary on Klein’s book. Michelle Malkin directs us to a number of other reviewers of the book.
