Carl Bernstein on Hillary Clinton

British newspapers have begun carrying new information from Carl Bernstein's Hillary Clinton biography, A WOMAN IN CHARGE, due to be released this week.

The Times of London published a lengthy, interesting excerpt (see subject link), which is not particularly flattering toward Mrs. Clinton.

London's Telegraph reports that Bernstein believes Hillary suffered recurring bouts of serious depression.

From the Telegraph: "Although the Clinton campaign has attempted to dismiss the book, Bernstein's pedigree and sympathy towards the former first lady's policies make this difficult.

"Advance media coverage has focused principally on suggestions that the Clintons came close to divorce in 1989. But accounts of Mrs Clinton's temper, tendency to bear grudges, lying, detachment and struggle to establish her own identity are likely to prove more damaging. The prospect of a commander-in-chief who might be prone to depression during a crisis could deter voters."

Jeff Gerth's Hillary bio, HER WAY, is being released a few days after Bernstein's book.

Meanwhile, don't miss Rich Lowry taking on Hillary's recent speech in support of socialist economic policies.

And NewsBusters notes that the long-hidden information that Hillary flunked the D.C. bar exam has not received widespread media coverage. (Nor, for that matter, has the news that John Kerry's application was turned down by Harvard Law School in 1973, but that's another story...)

Sorry, but is there much that has been written that is particularly flattering to Hilary? Everything I have ever read just makes her seem like such a--well, let's just say "not a nice person."

Very true. I guess the novelty here is having someone sympathetic to liberals & Democrats say it.

I sooooo don't want to revisit the Clinton years -- the Times excerpt brought back a lot of unpleasant memories. I hope we won't have to "go there" again, but fear we well might.
