How’d we miss this?
A new batch of interviews with top Clinton administration officials released Friday provides new insights into the personalities and decision-making styles of Bill and Hillary Clinton. It also offers potential fodder for their critics and allies as the former first lady mulls a likely 2016 presidential campaign.
The interviews, conducted after the Clintons left the White House, are part of an oral history project by the University of Virginia’s Miller Center. Their release coincides with the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Clinton Presidential Center, which is being marked by a multi-day celebration in Arkansas, where Bill Clinton served as governor.
The irony meter just exploded. Meanwhile, a Clinton friend claims she’d have walked in Bill kept banging anyone with a pulse.
No one said anything about after the campaign.
A top aide to Hillary Rodham Clinton said she warned Bill Clinton during the 1992 presidential race that she would walk out and take the whole staff with her if there were any new bimbo eruptions during the campaign.
“I told him if I found him having sex on the campaign, he was dead, that I was leaving and taking everybody with me,” said Clinton adviser Susan Thomases. “I said, ‘You’re stupid enough to blow this whole presidential thing over your d–k. And if that turns out to be true, buddy, I’m going home, and I’m taking people with me. If you don’t have enough self-control to keep yourself straight, then it’s just dumb.’ ”
Thomases revealed her straight-talking pre-emptive strike as part of an oral history project on the Clinton White House being released this month by the University of Virginia.
She claims the threat worked. Um, really?
