Another book about the Clintons

Nina Burleigh reviews a new book about the Clinton’s in today's WaPo:

“Sally Bedell Smith is not the first and surely not the last to propose that the Clintons are in bed together (at least sometimes, presumably) "for love of politics" and nothing more. I suspect there's more to their relationship. But then again, I also think it's not for us to speculate….Similarly, who are we to assess the path a heartbroken woman finds out of the darkest night of her soul? Judge not, sisters, lest ye . . . well, you've heard it before.” Votes and Vows: The Marriage Of Bill and Hillary Clinton -

Don’t know who Ms. Burleigh is? The Post helpfully reminds us:

“[She]…covered the Clintons for Time and whose "Mirage: Napoleon's Scientists and the Unveiling of Egypt" will be published next month.”

What? Still can’t place her? Well, she is a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post but is probably best remembered for her defense of Bill Clinton at a particularly low point in his presidency.

"I'd be happy to give him a blow job just to thank him for keeping abortion legal."

Side Notes: …and why did she feel the need to include this cheap shot at Rosalynn Carter?

“The most avid consumers of the Clinton marital analysis are female because of what Hillary means to American women (otherwise, why not a shelf of books about the role of the silent partner in the most disastrous presidency in history?).”
