It’s taken Hillary Clinton decades to politically circumvent Bill’s sexual peccadilloes and put enough distance between his bad behavior and her fantastical self-image of a strong, capable leader.
In her unending quest to occupy the Oval Office, Mrs. Clinton lives her pantsuit-centered life in one locale while wandering Bill lives his pantless life in another, and with God’s grace the twain meet as infrequently as possible.
Now, as Hillary sets her sights on the White House for yet a second time, out of the shadows comes another XY chromosome character with a zipper that seems to be stuck in the down position.
Complicating matters is his patient wife, who just so happens to be Hillary’s right-hand woman and who has fashioned her response to her husband’s repeated transgressions after the ever-stoic faithful spouse Hillary.
That scenario is precisely why Ms. Rodham-Clinton’s pantsuit is in a bunch. Seems mayoral hopeful Tiny… oops, I mean Tony Weiner and wife Huma Abedin are comparing Weinergate I and II to the cock-up that well-known cigar aficionado Bill Clinton perpetrated on America during his eight-year stint.
For most people, emulation would be a compliment, but not for Mrs. Clinton. The problem is that after almost 25 years of carving a place for herself that protects her from her husband’s notorious inability to control his wandering libido, the last thing Hillary needs right now is to have Weiner’s image associated with Slick Willy’s and a rejected but forbearing Huma linked to her own.
In classic Clinton style, Weiner is desperately trying to deflect attention away from the iPhone pictures of his penis and proclaim his concern for the middle class. Meanwhile, Democrats are saying that “The Clintons are upset with the comparisons that the Weiners seem to be encouraging — that Huma is ‘standing by her man’ the way Hillary did with Bill, which is not what she in fact did.”
Hillary didn’t ‘stand by her man’? Oh, that’s right, what Hillary did had nothing to do with ‘standing’. Instead, Hillary vanished into the nether regions of solitude, sat right down, and crafted a new plan of action. Then, when the time was right, Hillary emerged stronger, more enduring, and more determined to move forward with her systematic plan to realize her dream of presidential omnipotence.
As for Bill, his being upset is understandable. After all, let’s give credit where credit is due. Weiner’s ‘vast iPhone conspiracy’ is small potatoes in comparison to the escapades of an unmatched swordsman like Bill Clinton. Not only that, but Bill doesn’t want a weenie like Weiner to ruin his chances of parking his humidor on a shelf in the Oval Office for old time’s sake.
That’s supposedly why the Clintons are angry. It’s alleged that Hill and Bill believe that Weiner and his campaign aides are pointing to their experiences in desperation, to convince those who want Weiner to throw in the towel, so to speak, that marital infidelity is a private matter. After all, Bill Clinton did prove that refusing to let go of the (ahem) presidency together with a supportive wife was key to his being undeterred by minor details like a blue Gap dress, perjury, and impeachment.
