Report: Hillary Clinton's private reaction to Bill's affair

Report: Hillary Clinton's Private Reaction To Bill's Affair

So why did Hillary forgive Bill? A new report claims to have the answer, along with other inside info on her reaction to his affair in the mid-90s.

The report is coming out of conservative website The Washington Free Beacon. According to CNN, the outlet says it's quoting the documents of Diane Blair, a deceased political science professor who was a close friend of Hillary's.

"[The affair] was a lapse, but [Hillary] says to his credit he tried to break it off, tried to pull away, tried to manage someone who was clearly a 'narcissistic loony toon'; but it was beyond control."

According to the Free Beacon, these quotes are coming from Blair's papers that were donated to the University of Arkansas in 2010 by her husband. She died in 2000.

Blair apparently said Hillary thought her husband's sex with Monica Lewinsky didn't have "any real meaning," and that she felt the former president might have had the affair due to the stress of their personal losses - her father and his mother, along with their friend Vince Foster, died after he took office.

The Free Beacon provides a lengthy assessment of the documents, dubbing Hillary Clinton both a "devoted mother" and a "cutthroat strategist."

Of course, the report comes as rumors build that Clinton will run for president in 2016 -- and as headlines build as to whether Bill Clinton and his past will help or hurt his wife's potential candidacy.

And that would have been an appropriate response, now that more than 16 years have passed....

Their "friend" Vince Foster "died"? Easy way to dismiss what everyone beyond nitwit level considers a murder.
And not a few of them believe the Clintons were behind it all.

Yeah, right...once an ole horndog, always an ole horndog....and why would she forgive him???? Maybe a future Presidential run? Maybe all the political "friends" that they have together? Maybe all the other skeletons that are in the closest that they need to keep secret together? They aren't married...they are partners for individual selfish matters. He should have been impeached for lying to the court on his actions....under testimony..."I have never had sexual relations with her"...remember that? Just another bad political individual that abuses the power and happens to be a Democrat.

sounds like Hillary has a problem facing reality

if Bill had the affair due to the loses in his life - what were the reasons for his earlier affairs

Face it Hillary your husband is a sexual deviant. He used his power to prey on a 20 year old girl
