06/17/2003 Entry: "Hillary and Martha"

"Whether this (Living History) is the whole truth is impossible for a stranger to know. Like Joe Klein, I tend to believe she really loved him she writes in the book about her first impression of him as a "Viking" and lyrically describes his hands, his boundless energy, his fascinating conversation. I was ready to date him myself! She certainly wouldn't be the first smart, straitlaced woman who fell for a sexy charmer and ended up, as the joke goes, believing what he told her instead of what she saw. Nor, on the other hand, would she be the first wife who decided to live with what she couldn't change rather than throw away a relationship that was also a way of life. Or the first First Lady who put up a good front in public while quietly seething at home. I doubt the right-wingers going after Hillary for staying with Bill would have cheered if evidence of George Bush Sr.'s rumored infidelities had come to light and Barbara had abandoned him in his hour of need. Hillary must be the only woman the family-values crowd has ever castigated for sticking with her marriage. Just you try suggesting, though, that Pat Nixon was maybe not the most fulfilled woman in America, or that Laura Bush sometimes looks a little subdued, a little out of focus, and see how fast you get accused of being an East Coast elitist, slut and traitor."
Hillary's Blond Ambition, by Katha Pollitt, The Nation, June 16, 2003

I guess I have nothing to add to this except that if I had to be trapped in a mine shaft, I'd rather be trapped in a mine shaft with Hillary Clinton or Martha Sterwart than Katha Pollitt, if those were my only choices.
