I have always had a soft spot for the Washington Post’s Richard Cohen and this is a good example why. This spectacular final paragraph refers to her favorite phrase ( “the politics of personal destruction”):
“The MoveOn.org ad was the moment for Clinton to rise above hackdom. It was a moment for her to insist that the business of politics, not to mention governing, is made even uglier and more difficult when people who merely differ with one another resort to insult. It was a moment for her to say that an Army general, under orders and attempting to fulfill a mission, should not be so casually trashed — especially since she herself has been on the other side of the Iraq war issue and said things she must now regret. And it was a moment for her to trot out her favorite phrase and use it, not in her own defense for once but in defense of someone else. That moment is gone — maybe because for Hillary Clinton it never arrived in the first place.”
