Mac the Nice on Hillary
Two anecdotes in particular stand out. First, this one from Maureen Dowd:
"I had traveled with Dukakis really early, maybe his first campaign trip to Iowa," she recalled, "and I asked him what I always ask people: 'What do you do for fun?'
"And he said: 'Black mulch.'
"And I said: 'Black mulch?'
"And he said: 'I like to put black mulch on my tomato plants.'
"And I thought to myself right then: This man will never be president."
Then there is this story McAuliffe told when asked for an example of Hillary's lighter side:
"We were at Camp David once," McAuliffe said, "and my son ran over her in a golf cart and she got up and said, 'Did Bill teach you to drive?' "
Something tells me that Senator Clinton is going to, pardon the pun, get a lot of mileage out of better half on this front.
