My choice for the content of this post is 'the ghost of things once said come back to haunt'. And YES, I remember this like it was yesterday.
Verbatim transcript of the initial portion of this interview on a USA TV program called "Nightline": full transcript can be had by using "hillary clinton baking cookies interview 1992".
I believe "VO" means 'voice over'.
Making Hillary Clinton An Issue
March 26, 1992
Correspondent: Jackie Judd
Anchor: Ted Koppel
TED KOPPEL (VO): Meet the new political wife. She has a career, she has opinions. A partner in every way.
GOV BILL CLINTON, (D), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: And my slogan might well be, "Buy one, get one free".
KOPPEL (VO): And now, she's become controversial.
HILLARY CLINTON: I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession which I entered before my husband was in public life.
Me here: IMO anyone who believes that a lifestyle choice of staying home and baking cookies as a homemaker is beneath them is an elitist snob. That's what her persona projects, i. e., she lacks the common touch AKA empathy. The USA does not need, or want, a president like that.
And you need one like Trump, instead?
She was already working before her hubby was in public life and wanted to continue in that, where's the problem. I don't think that statement in any way demeans those who choose to stay home.
By the look of him and seeing him get so worked up, I don't reckon he'll last the distance. One way or another.
