This one’s from Yahoo! News:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says it has been worth it to stand by her man, Bill Clinton, despite the marital challenges they have faced.
Their marriage was rocked in 1998 when it was revealed that President Bill Clinton had had an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, which set off an extended drama that led to his impeachment and a failed attempt to remove him from office.
Hillary Clinton, a senator from New York, talked about her relationship with Bill in an interview with Essence magazine for its November issue. Some people have wondered over the years why she has stood by Clinton, who also had been accused of sexual improprieties by other women.
“I know the truth of my life and of my marriage, my relationship and partnership, my deep abiding friendship with my husband,” Clinton said, according to interview excerpts published on www.essence.com. “It’s been enormously supportive to me through most of my life.
In a way, everything is pandering I guess. However, I’d say this revelation is trying to appeal to the moderates and maybe the women who commend her for standing by Wild Bill.
“Now obviously we’ve had challenges as everybody in the world knows. But I never doubted that it was a marriage worth investing in, even in the midst of those challenges, and I’m really happy that I made that decision.”
Yeah, happy because you’re now running for president on your husband’s platform. You’re also towing him around the country to shill for you! Happy because this business venture known as your political career remains in tact!
Anyway, I digress, Hillary’s just a wealth of news items and blog material.
Keep ’em coming!
