A Vanity Fair piece on Bill Clinton, titled “The Comeback Id,” is making waves. The article suggests that the former president remains an ethical liability for his wife by associating with a loose crowd and continuing to chase women.
The piece reads like a hit job and relies on anonymous sources and gossip.
Still, Clinton responded self-indulgently this week with a rope-line rant at a campaign event, calling the writer (Todd Purdum, the husband of – get ready – former Clinton press secretary Dee Dee Myers!) “sleazy,” a “scumbag” and “slimy,” among other choice epithets. (He later apologized for using the language.)
You wonder: Are press secretaries finally deciding to get their revenge?
Anyway, Hillary Clinton might be ready for her husband’s portion of the campaign to end.
