Jeff Gerth on Hilary Clinton Part I listen06/15/07 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:
Hilary Clinton is already one of the most scrutinized people in the world, much less of those running for President.
The former first lady and now New York Senator continues to hold a double digit lead in national polls for the Democratic nomination.
Now sheâ€™s the subject of 2 new biographies, both of which were published last week.
One is by legendary journalist Carl Bernstein â€“ the other, â€œHer Wayâ€ is written by New York Times reporter Don Van Natta and former Times reporter Jeff Gerth.
WMNF spoke with Gerth earlier this week about his take on Clinton.
We began by asking about a report in â€œHer Wayâ€, that during Bill Clintonâ€™s first run for President in 1992, Mrs. Clinton led what was known among insiders as â€œThe Defense Teamâ€ (roll tape#1 o.q.â€her own goalâ€)
Thatâ€™s Jeff Gerth, the co-author of the new biography on Hillary Clinton, called â€œHer Way: The Hopes and Ambitions â€œ. Weâ€™ll hear the 2nd part of this interview next week on the Evening News.
