The Politics of Personal Destruction

The Washington Times Inside Politics Column reminds of how a Clinton Administration treated anybody who got in it's way:

"Right as she steps up her 2006 re-election campaign, New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton will face new criticism stemming from a years-old event," Paul Bedard writes in the Washington Whispers column of U.S. News & World Report.
"Kathleen Willey Schwicker, who says she was groped in the Oval Office by President Clinton as she sought a job, tells us she is going to release a new book that slams Hillary for not stopping the White House spin machine from crushing her. 'It's not so much about the incident but about what they would do to an ordinary American woman,' she tells us. 'Hillary Clinton champions herself for female workers' rights and for women, but she doesn't. She didn't support the women involved in all of Clinton's messes.'
"Like: Retaliating for Willey Schwicker's '60 Minutes' appearance by approving the release of letters Willey Schwicker sent the president, after the alleged incident, in which she calls herself his No. 1 fan. 'I just want people to know what it is like to be in their cross hairs,' she says. Clinton's office had no comment."
