NRO editor Kathryn Lopez asked Edward Klein — former New York Times Magazine editor-in-chief — about this and more. In an exclusive interview — the first of The Truth About Hillary Clinton, Klein explains and defends his book, and gives his read on where Hillary Clinton has been and where she is going.
National Review Online: In a sentence, what is 'the truth about Hillary'?
Edward Klein: Hillary is not a victim (not of sexism, not of her husband, and certainly not of this book); she’s not a moderate (despite her effort to re-brand herself in the Senate). Even my sources on the left admit she’s positioning herself as a victim and moderate in order to win the White House.
This comes as no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention.
Remember what former Clinton advisor Dick Morris said about Hillary in his book Rewriting History:
"The only real model for a Hillary presidency is that of Richard Nixon. Like Nixon, Hillary hides a personality driven by paranoia, fear, and hatred for enemies, and a willingness to get even and do what it takes to prevail, behind a sencerity and good nature."
