The Case Against Hillary Clinton
by Peggy Noonan
from The DRUDGE REPORT - March 20th 2000
NOONAN BOOK SLAMMED BY HILLARY CAMPAIGN
A senior campaign staffer to Hillary Rodham Clinton is slamming author Peggy Noonan's
profile of the First Lady, calling the book "psychobabble to the extreme."
"They should file this book in the pop-psychology section of the store," the
campaign official told the DRUDGE REPORT over the weekend.
Noonan is set to cause a sensation this week when her new book "The Case Against
Hillary Clinton" is released by REGANBOOKS -- a book the First Lady has vowed not to
"She's told everyone to keep the book away from her," the campaign insider revealed.
"Often when I watch the Clintons I think I perceive a profound joylessness, an almost
glassy-eyed containment, or distance," Noonan writes.
Noonan's examination stings and stuns.
"It’s as if they don’t have a façade, they’ve become a façade. You sense a depression on
his part and an anger on hers. They seem to me trapped, lost in a maze of inauthenticity,
looking for the admiration that they think will lead them home."
The former Reagan/Bush speechwriter has already kissed the 20s on the AMAZON sales
list with "Case Against"; talkradio host Don Imus publicly trashed Noonan [literally]
during a recent broadcast, throwing her effort in the garbage.
"It is perplexing," Noonan writes of Hillary Clinton. "She is so famous, so celebrated for
her accomplishments; she so quickly and eagerly refers to them. And yet when you look at
the record, her reputation for accomplishment seems to be just another fiction...
"Mrs. Clinton's career has essentially been a matter of talk and rise. Talk by the Clintons
about how much the Clintons care, talk that is Castroesque in its length, talk that has quite
filled the American air."
"Yet, Freedom! yet thy banner, torn, but flying,
streams like the thunderstorm against the wind."
-- Lord Byron
