  •  I'm sure you understand (0+ / 0-)

    informal channels of communication, diplomacy, and the fact that almost every President has held his spouse in high confidence and regard, and often used them to approach things that have to be done in a different way.  The only one who doesn't it seems is GWB.

    •  Yes, but extricating what is to be credited to (1+ / 0-)

      the President and what is to be the credited to the spouse is clearly messy.  

      Am I to blame Nancy Reagen for the turning out of thousands of mental patients onto the streets?

    •  Eleanor Roosevelt (2+ / 0-)

      She did not believe that her  numerous years as first lady were enough to be president.

      She publicaly diagreed w/FDR (had her own radio show) and was first lady in one of the most turbelent times in our history.

      So Hillary is better than Eleanor?

      She easily could have been president or VP.  I think Eleanor just knew that it would not be good for the country to have on family in power so long (even ones like the Roosevelt's)

      I will drink the Clinton Campaign Champagne 'cause Kool-aid is for kids!

    •  Alas this argument (0+ / 0-)

      is a non-starter:

      I'm sure you understand informal channels of communication, diplomacy, and the fact that almost every President has held his spouse in high confidence and regard, and often used them to approach things that have to be done in a different way.  The only one who doesn't it seems is GWB.

      We simply have no way of verifying these claims unless Clinton releases the papers from the presidential library.  Nor can we take her word for it because she has a vested interest here.
