Hillary ClintonThe big question about Hillary Clinton's book was whether or not she'd discuss Bill's peccadilloes. Now that the book will gone on sale next week, it's revealed that Senator Clinton does detail her experience during the Monica Lewinsky incident. Her initial thought was "For me, the Lewinsky imbroglio seemed like just another vicious scandal manufactured by political opponents." But then when Bill admitted the affair, she "was dumbfounded, heartbroken and outraged that [she'd] believed him at all."

With some many references to his affairs, Gothamist has always wondered what Hillary had going for her in the marriage: Yes, he's charming and did make his way to the presidency, but it seems so myopic at the same time, to stand by him, which is what Hillary did do for a while. But now that she's in the Senate and possibly poised for higher office, we understand, and this book is the latest move to paint her as a sympathetic character ("The most difficult decisions I have made in my life were to stay married to Bill and to run for the Senate from New York."), so Hillary in our book is as shrewd and even more driven than the Bill. Nice move, Hill, nice move.
