Why the Clinton America Sees Isn't the Clinton Colleagues Know

quote [ This is not a profile of Hillary Clinton. It is not a review of her career or an assessment of her campaign. You won’t find any shocking revelations on her emails, on Benghazi, on Whitewater, or even on her health care plan.

This is an effort to answer a question I’ve been struggling with since at least 2008: Why is the Hillary Clinton described to me by her staff, her colleagues, and even her foes so different from the one I see on the campaign trail? ]

I found this a rather interesting read.

How does one carry out diplomacy if not by building relationships? How does one get people to work together for a greater good without strong networking capabilities?

You may have the give and take nature of politics, but that is the nature of humanity and the world. That is how things get done. You may not think that's how they ought to get done, but people are historically not good at 'ought to'. People aren't going to start making good choices because it's reasonable or contributes to some greater picture, they do it because they feel they have an incentive.

I am sick of this whole Crooked Hillary the Liar narrative. After wasting gobs of money looking for wrong-doing, highly motivated investigators couldn't find anything damning. But that doesn't change the narrative. Say it enough times, and people believe it; after all, why would everyone keep saying it if it weren't true?
