Why Hillary Clinton Will Never Have Sally Quinn Over for Tea

Taylor Branch in his book, The Clinton Tapes, writes of Hillary and Quinn (wife of famed WaPo Watergate editor Ben Bradlee).
"You know," declared Hillary, "she has been hostile since the moment we got here. Why would we invite someone like that into our home? How could she expect us to?" From my heels [Branch talking], I suggested that Hillary approach the Washington press corps like swing voters in a tough campaign, but she rejected the analogy. She said Quinn and her friends simply invented gossip for their dinner circuit. They had launched one juicy affair between Hillary and a female veterinarian attending Socks, the Clinton family cat, with tales about how somebody discovered them flagrante on a bedroom floor in the White House.
