From the Memory Hole

With the presidential election less than a year away, and with primary fever starting to grip the political world, Stuart Taylor of National Journal provides us with a timely reminder of what the electorate is dealing with in Hillary Clinton.

In a word: Liar. A fuller description would include the words cold-blooded, calculating, without conscience, and oh yes--shameless--in front of the "L" word.

As inundated as we are with ever-changing news cycles and information overload, it is so easy to forget even the recent past. Taylor's article calls us back to the 1990s and the seamy shadows of Travelgate, Vince Foster, Monica Lewinski, cattle futures, and Hillary's questionable billing records from her law firm days.

If you're thinking of voting next year--especially if you're leaning towards Hillary--"Honesty: Hillary's Glass House" is definitely worth reading.
