Dr. Jekyll And Ms. Hyde
There are two Hillary Clintons running for president. One is a perky, upbeat Martha Stewarty sort of candidate. This is the Hillary we see in those softball interviews and at many of her campaign appearances.
But there's another Hillary who is shrill, screechy and berating. We see that one during some of her speeches. Those (like this blogger) who recall the 2003 Connecticut fundraiser know what I'm talking about; that was the event where she delivered this famous line:
I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic. And we should stand up and say we are Americans, and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration!
On those occasions, she becomes Stella Mudd:
Sometimes both personalities try to assert themselves at the same time; the Martha side fights to keep the Stella side under control. The effect is the droning monotone Hillary that we see from time to time.
