Pure Clinton

by James S. Robbins

When Hillary Clinton was asked on “Meet the Press” if she would never accept the Democratic Presidential nomination, her response was , “I am not accepting the nomination.” This was exactly the formulation Bill Clinton used to deny his affair with Monica Lewinsky under oath: “There is no relationship.” Meaning, not at that precise moment. And we understand that Hillary was not accepting the nomination Sunday, because everyone now knows what the meaning of “is” is. Either this was a subtle joke she was playing, or this junior high-level wordplay is a family psychosis.
