Some wondered about this picture, which I posted yesterday. First of all, I found the photo via an image Google search. I believe I used "Hillary bathing suit."
For those who don't know, or can't recall, the reason for this picture ...
It was taken in January, 1998, while the Clintons were on vacation in St. Thomas. The Clintons, who script every single, solitary second, needed a diversion from Slick's upcoming testimony in the Paula Jones civil lawsuit.
[If you'll recall, Bill Clinton lied during his testimony, which was why he was later impeached.]
Politically speaking, the "Carribbean cheesecake" was a good move because it allowed for some righteous indignation: "We stupidly assumed they'd be granted some privacy."
But Clinton also said: ... "I didn't think I was being photographed."
So why did the White House complain about an invasion of privacy? I asked.
"This is a post-Diana world," the source said. "It's good to complain about that, and it's good to complain about the press. It makes the public more on your side. But a picture of the two of them dancing? You can't lose with a picture like that."
Remember Geffen's words: "Everyone in politics lies, but they do it with such ease, it's troubling."
Let's not forget ...
